software for unique products
integrate ecommerce on existing site

 9:10 pm on Aug 22, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have site with a very specific product db structure.

Do any of the better ecommerce systems let you define/customize the product fields?

Additionally, I would would need to be able to create lists or categories by this fields. For example sneakers have the attributes: Manufacturer, Material, color, sport.

I'd like to build lists, or stored searches by those attributes. So the navigation structure would be:

Nike, Addidas, Reebok, converse etc.


Leather, Nylon Mesh, Canvas, etc.


White, Red, Green, Blue, Black, etc.


Tennis, Golf, Basketball, Baseball, Running, Soccer.

Can anyone help? All the software I see have canned product templates and a folder-based category hierarchy.

Are you just wanting for sneakers or for other products as well?

Sneakers were just an example. It's actually

Yarn, Knitted Products, Books, Needles, and Accessories (just a general catch all category.

I think that you would have to add those separate categories. We tried to make one cart generic but it never seem to work properly. So instead, we just added the extra fields along the way
