thanks for the comments everyone - the purpose of the site would be to sell the notepads - they can upload their logos, graphics etc - I would like to have an order form in a pdf format - let them print them out and just fax me the actual orders - then I would setup and send them a proof - then by a phone call get their credit card info etc -and finish the order and ship to them - I have owned by printing company for 12 years and I am just wanting to see what if I can get any work off the net - we have always done these notepads for companies and lately we have been doing them for individuals for christmas gifts, shower gifts and wedding notepads - we can put the peoples personal pics etc - reasonably priced unique gift - so i am just wondering if their is a demand for these.
You might consider a couple of changes to make the process more customer friendly...
Instead of requiring the customer to print out the pdf file, complete it and fax it back to you, have an online form. Alternatively, you could use a pdf form that they can complete online, then print and fax or email back to you.
If you throw up hurdles in front of people who are trying to buy online - they will just go somewhere else. So, you want to make the process as user friendly as possible. The success of your online venture is affected not only by your products / service but by how the user interacts with your website.
Re: payment - you can use PayPal to generate and email an invoice (and process credit card payments).
