I have a website selling widgets from two or three different affiliate programs. I don't have any of my own products, it's all affiliate based.
I want to add more affiliates/vendors, more products, more categories and a sort-by-price feature. So I got to thinking, perhaps I should redo my whole site using the oscommerce shopping cart. But since I know next to nothing about oscommerce, or shopping carts in general, I have the following questions:
1. Does it make sense to use a shopping cart when the product links on my site are affiliate links containing my affiliate ID #?
2. Can a shopping cart program such as oscommerce transfer sales in the shopping cart on my site to the affiliates' websites, who will then fill the order, collect the money, ship it and pay me?
I probably have more questions, but don't know enough right now to know what to ask.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
