    I'm having a bake sale and was wondering if setting
    up an online order form for pre-orders would be worth the time?
    I find there are simple web forms out there
    that total up your selections on the same page.
    Or, should I do all transactions in person.

    Unless you already have a popular website to advertise on, I would suggest doing it all in person.
    Especially if this is a one time thing. If it's something you plan to do on a regular basis, then looking into an online structure would probably work.

    Thanks Chester, that makes sense. This might turn into a regular thing, depending on results.
