Okay, I'm a newcomer to this e-commerce forum. I need to start making more money. I am new to e-commerce. What are the ins and outs to making an e-commerce website?

I notice there are some websites that have nothing but links to other websites on them. Is that a form of e-commerce? Do the companies pay you to link to them?

As you can see, I have a whole lot to learn about making money on the web. I will be going through the posts here, tooth and nail. But if there is any e-commerce refresher's course anyone wanted to start, by all means start it here.
