Some ecommerce questions - merchant accounts,

I am a graphic/ web designer, this is my first ecommerce project. I built a beautiful store using Zen Cart (great software by the way). Now that I've got this store built, I am am trying to figure out what I need to do now. I am doing this on the cheap for a friend since it is my first go at ecommerce. I figured he needed an SSL certificate, went to verisign and had no idea it costs upwards of $1000? Does he really need this? Also, I was pricing Merchant Acconts - around $20 a month sound right?
I did a little research and saw that Paypal will allow you to accept credit cards, even if the customer does not have an account, and you can customize the checkout page so nobody knows they are at Paypal
