Do they give you a permanent IP address? If not, you're going to have to 
subscribe to some dynamic IP service so people can actually get to your site. 
But quite frankly running a commercial website (I assume so because you'll be 
accepting CC payments) using dynamic IP feels a bit dodgy to me. Surely a 
commercial operation can afford the USD 10-20/month for a decent web host?
