I set mine up on etsy and artfire myself.  I didn't see a reason to go to the trouble of a custom web page when I was just starting out.  Just make sure you pick a good shop name and spell it right because you can't change it once you've got it.

I'm in the middle of creating a Weebly website. I don't have a credit card for Etsy, and despite PayPal supposedly changing how it works, I'm fed up with research and REALLY don't want a credit card EVER.

Weebly is free, setting it up is pretty intuitive, but creating the pages-within-pages thing is giving me a headache...

You don't need a credit card for PayPal. A checking account is all you need. And I suggest you set up a separate account dedicated solely to PayPal transfers so you transfer the money to other accounts that PayPal doesn't have access to. Just in case.

That's a GREAT suggestion!

Aside, I need the CC for Etsy. PayPal has changed their format so you don't need a premier account if you run your own web business, they simply charge a percentage commission plus $0.30 per deposit whether you use an email invoice or a PayPal shopping cart (which is DANG cool!). Last I checked, Etsy requires a CC to pay your listing fees and commission, probably just in case you empty out your PayPal account. AND, PayPal still charges you per deposit, so you actually pay twice for one transaction if you go through Etsy.
