I am currently looking into developing a small ecommerce site that utilizes Flash. Ideally Flash can be integrated into the back-end functionality of processing orders. First I was wondering how complex this would be, and what it involves. Second, if the Flash was only used for graphic purposes, what kind of vendor should I look for to have shopping cart functionality, order processing, site stat tools and the like.
A webstore front like Yahoo store would be a good start except they're templates are not free form. Any advice on store fronts like these that you can fully customize the design including using Flash?
I have seen a couple of Yahoo! Stores incorporating Flash. All of the standard templates can be customized, but there is a small learning curve. Most of my clients do love the Y! Store interface though, so it is worth the effort.
