How large is your budget? It is totally possible, and the website itself can even be done at a reasonable cost, the bulk of your cost would be in marketing. Honestly, if it was that easy to create a website that was like amazon, don't you think Google or Facebook would have done it?

but I have no idea where to start? Start by contacting a web design and development firm.

Where do I get the products? Manufacturers, Distributors, Wholesalers, & Dropshippers.

How do I start the website? You pay a website designer/developer.

Who do I go through? Anyone who is competent in web design and development.

Who can I trust? If the website looks legitimate, has proven results, and a toll-free number, chances are they are a legitimate company. Make sure they are in the USA. Ask for references. Ask many questions,

Do I need a ecommerce script please help I am ready to get on my career. An eCommerce script would save you some money, but if you want a site like Amazon, you may need it customized heavily, so it may just make sense to custom code it.

You sound lost my friend ;)
I am farely knew to this myself but there is a site im interested in using when Im fully prepared...hopefully soon..It was referred to me awhile back but honestly the site looks cheesy. Its a web hosting site to help people like me without much experience get started. I came across it again and actually, im personally going to give it shot.

I wish i had more personal experience with it myself but others have and it seems perfect for me.
Heres the link for Pagebuzz....hope everything works out.
