Cart with options beyond pull down menus
Need check boxes at best radio buttons would be great

 1:00 am on Jul 7, 2001 (gmt 0)

I am looking for a cart that allow the user a check boxes to enhance the product.


Product: 1957 Chevy.
Add these type of options.
Check Box for: Fuzzy Dice
Check Box for: Racoons Tail
Check Box for: Fold Down Front Seats

Radio Button for:
Paint Upgrade: Yes - No

Pull Down menu's don't work well for this application.
I really need checkboxes and radio buttons.

Anyone found or used a Cart Service providing these options?

Look for a template-driven cart system, maybe? I've been using EZShopper, and I'm pretty sure as long as you coded the product pages or search result templates properly, you could use almost any type of form input with it. Drawback: having it set up to work with an instant payment processing gateway (like AuthorizeNet, etc.) will cost extra.

Has EZShopper addressed its security issues?

It is getting hard to find a Cart Server that is both secure and still in business.

Still I search for specialized options.

I've helped to develop many sites using Americart, and find their flexibility and portability to be excellent.

They support all kinds of options to modify an item (checklist, select lists, radio buttons - up to 44 per item). In fact, over the five years I've been using them (and they've been around longer than that) they've only grown more flexible. I only once had a client ask for a feature that their service couldn't support, and they added that feature. They include support for multiple shipping methods, database input for thousands of items and a seamless interface to many major payment processing services, such as AuthorizeNet, Linkpoint, IBill, Verisign, PayPal, etc.

Thanks Tedster,

I also use Americart on serveral sites.
I wrote them asking if they would support checkboxes and radio buttons.

But the reply did not clearly state that they do.
From your response I will take it as a yes.

Thanks again,
