So does anyone know of a good shopping cart with that feature?
Other handy things for this site would be:
Shipping prices assigned by admin on a per-item basis
Upselling at checkout - "would you like to add [title] to your order?"
Integration with PayPal's gateway service
It's not necessary to be free, but inexpensive would be nice. I'd prefer it was created by somebody with an established reputation for secure applications.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations,
Creating different templates for different categories is a fairly simple task for someone with technical knowledge of Smarty/PHP.
We've done something similar for our site and didn't find it overly challenging. The caveat being that we're fairly technical. It isn't necessarily something a completely non-technical type would want to undertake.
That part of X-cart isn't well documented though, so you'll end up stumbling around a little figuring out how they've done things.
You'll basically just need to figure out where to put the relevant if/then/else blocks based on the category_id that will call the smarty templates you'll put together to drive the custom views you want. Depending on how far you deviate from the standard x-cart template views, writing the specific display templates could range from "trivial" to "ugh."
I suspect their budget doesn't match their ambitions.
