There are several infomercial answering services--some highly reputable, others not so much. The downside to doing this (I looked into it), is you need to establish a "no frills" dedicated phone and phone line installed (separate phone number) that only accepts incoming calls, buy a special headset, and you'll need a separate IBM computer to process the calls, and you would want a special room in your home or home office that the kids cannot access, because you cannot have kids running all around when you are on the phone/taking orders!!! :o) All of that is upfront expenses, which in my case, would have been around $1000 just to get started (including labor and set up costs from my phone/cable company)!
However, here's some info on one reputable company if you want to pursue it!

Make sure you read the "How much can I make" part of the above liveops... it says they average about 1.57 per call, 4 per 30 minutes.... But, that's allowing 7.5 minutes per call... this is very hard to achieve unless you really know your stuff. Basically a real call can last you anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes... This is providing that you are totally satisfying your customers... Believe me, I worked at a call center... it's just not feasible... out of 60 calls I answered per day, about 2 were less then 10 minute calls....
