I love the security of Linux and would eventually like to have my own static ip address using my own server with Linux but as for now money is precious and sparse.

Look for a host that offers out of the box e-cart, or e-shopping
services and already has the infrastructure setup to take payment
information securely.

There are actually quite a few out there running open source cart
applications for a reasonable price.
Things like opencart, zencart, magento, oscommerce.... (there's at least
8 decent options last time I looked)

These almost always include a db backend like Mysql and can be adapted
to hold some non shopping content like info pages.
