Is there some shopping cart software out there that lets people have their own storefronts, like on ebay, or do i have to do that myself?

Do you mean software that lets a number of people run a shop from the same site?
Or do you mean is there shopping cart software that let's you create your own online store without having to use eBay?

Ebay has store functionality as does Yahoo!. Those are worth checking into before you go building one.

Another option: MonsterCommerce. Good support and pretty good functionality.
Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

It's free and one of its features is:
"Previous Features: (Also included in current version)"
"Multiple stores with one database"
