Bought items from www.ridestuff.co.za and their payment system worked very well and secure.

I think it would be really good to support other bikers in this endevour.  There are at least 2 ways to do this.  1) Example - lets do all sticker kits from Bandit Signs -  Daryl is a legend and does a lot for our sport. 2) If you set up a platform then allow members to add their "services " (electricians, plumbers, etc) as products and take a commission from the referral business that ensues.  Money raised can cover costs of the platform and go towards races / prizes / sponsorships / social responsibility.

There is allot of good advise here. I can't wait to see what's gonna happen.
Just a thought:
'Wilddog Adventure riding seems to be growing everyday and it obviously has got many members already. If everybody is so keen to wear the WD branded merchandise, and from the responses i read there are many members that are very keen, would this whole thing not end up looking or even being some sort of motorcycle club. 'Wilddog AMC(Adventure motorcycling Club' :)  ) So then is it not worth at least treating it the same way as many of the other MC's around the country. Eg. Like having regional members help to control things in that region, like setting up Wilddog get togethers, outrides, breakfast runs ect. or even just helping to distribute the merchandise being offered.just an idea I'm throwing out there :)
It just sounds like it could be a hell of allot easier than controlling all the operations from one point. I'm sure there is members that would gladly help out.

 8) Not too sure about gearing of an on-line paying method, but there is for sure a need for a "one stop on-line shop". I'll fully support you and many of my bikers friends will join in. Too many shops, too many ideas/product - difficult to easily find good value without sacrificing the arm.
It's not about how we care in the beginning, but how much we grow and nourish one another in a relationship.

Excellent idea! Just an thought - T shirts to be sized for Western framed people and please make it a good quality item. EFT payment my choice. Please cater for the SWAMBO`s also. Postage via Postal Service is a nightmare currently. My swambo is awaiting stuff that is sitting in PTA postal center for 5 weeks now. Workers on strike there... >:(
I will support this initiative!

Maybe put up a chart with 10 essential questions on which we can choose/vote. Like the idea of central online shop, quality can be bought at a fair price, the postage/courier thing seems a worry.

Have a look at osCommerce : ( http://www.oscommerce.com/ )
Demo : http://demo.oscommerce.com/
As far as i know they can integrate with multiple payment gateways.
Payment gateways:

I use PayFast, their service is good and their payout is fast, 24 to 48 hours. With some payment processors payout is like a week.

You can have a look at various carts supported by Payfast at
https://www.payfast.co.za/developers/

I use ZenCart but it is a bit outdated, if you start a new site it is better to use something more modern.

As far as payment goes, with most carts you can setup different payment modules.
So you can have both EFT and Card

Payments received are about 60% card 40% EFT
I found on other sites of mine if you only offer EFT your sales are slow, moment you add credit card your sales improve.
People like me prefer to use credit card, it is just way too much of a shlep to add a beneficiary for eft and then send the proof, etc, etc.
So my opinion is you must have both EFT and credit card

Dont worry too much about what product, an online shop is muuch fun and you will see that your range just keeps on growing. Every now and then something nice cross your path.

I will definately support an on line shop

Ryno said ".......sort of motorcycle club. 'Wilddog AMC(Adventure motorcycling Club)......."
With clubs comes rules and regulations and regulatory body's etc, etc etc.

Do we want that?

Will definately support! In my opinion, KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid....

Basic site with catalogue, shopping cart and check out (payment VISA, if there is enough man power, add Eft as an option, since it will require constant recon with your bank and incoming proof of payments).

As for delievery, give customers options, 1. SA Postal... 2. Postnet or other private courier at additional cost 3. Collection at closest Vendor according to area of the Customer. This should keep 90% of the dawgs happy.

I am sure it doesn't sound simple, but as far as ecommerce sites go, it is. Most of the above functions are already available in templates mentioned before. Start small/basic and grow it from there. I am sure this venture will have huge amounts of organic growth year-on-year.

My 2.5cents...
