Major update to website need advice

 3:34 pm on Jan 31, 2013 (gmt 0)


I own a very small Ecommerce website that has about maximum of 30 products. I'm going to update complete it and I will use Dreamweaver for the first time for this. The basic layout is done. I want to keep most of the original URL's. I plan to use Paypal Pro or Paypal express for the payment gateway.

My question to you is: I had a Paypal buy it now button on the different pages with the descriptions on the different categories of products, Now, I want to use a cart but I still need to keep about 8 URL pages with descriptions and screen shots on those page, what should I do ?

Should I use a button (with price) to redirect the customer to central product page?

Or there's something else that I could do?

Do you have recommendations of DW carts?

I'm struck and I would need some new ideas.

I need to keep those old URL's because I have some external links pointing to them.

Your help is appreciated.

You could just use shopping cart software to power your new look website. There are many to choose from. There is no need to use Dreamweaver these days, unless you really want to.

I need to keep those old URL's because I have some external links pointing to them.

Don't worry about this. Just do a search on redirection. All you need to do is use 301 redirects from the old URLs to the new ones and those external links will find you.
