so i have so many things on my to do list, so i'll just get this post out of the way while i can….it's 'old' in that i've known about this last month but didn't blog about it yet.

google made it very easily to create an online store. u can set up a spreadsheet in google docs (inventory), embed the google checkout gadget in your google site, and u have an online store. see here for a how to.

i was thinking about using this to create an online registration program for my youth group, but google collects a fee, so it probably isn't worth it for my non-profit group.

one of the downside (?) to this is u need a google checkout account…hmm…but i think this is better than paypal.
