Yeah that's one reason Squarespace seems good--they have an integration with
Stripe, so there are only the standard 2.9% + 30¢ fees per sale.

Volusion doesn't appear to offer templates that are responsive--Squarespace
and Shopify appear to have an edge there. I'm not sure if Big Commerce
offers responsive templates.

Paul can you recommend a good non-hosted platform?
