Hello -

I designed a website that will have an online ordering system.
Instead of programming everything from scratch I was first searching for a software that could help me to build an online ordering system that integrates completely into the look and feel, the design of the website.
Every software I found offers *fast and easy*, *instant* solutions to open an online shop *now*:-) yet all are based on templates...

Does somebody know of a software or something similar that maybe offers a collection of scripts that I then can customize and integrate into my site to build the online order system?
Or maybe something like a "Dreamweaver" for online ordering systems.

I welcome your opinion and advice.

Thanks,
Katrin

Aspdotnetstorefront

Works with Dnn

Layout is based on skins and have many customers that have a basic website plus an shopping cart all managed from the same back-end

webgenie.com - one of the best for what you trying to do.

Mals-e.com - Cheaper than above.

Thank you all so much! Especially tcraw1010 with 'hotscripts'. It's such an incredible great resource! I found exactly what I need for my purpose - even beyond my expectations (no naming allowed by posting guidelines:-(

check out Veracart. I believe it basically fits into your website theme/layout/template. it generates the product catalog within your layout

I've been really happy with ClickCartPro 6. It's completely skinable, easy to customize, and written to be search engine friendly from the ground up. They have a very active community support forum too.

Reading this kind of got my curiousity up, so did some looking around (been a couple years since I looked at ecommerce platforms..).

It seems like a lot of the newer ones are based on ASP.NET 2.0 or PHP5 - and there are quite a few besides the aspdotnetstore. It seems like ecommerce suites have evolved quite a bit since I last looked, but the one thing that has not changed is evaluating them. It is still as difficult as ever to find out how they REALLY are and how support is.

We have been on a Yahoo store for almost 10 years, but we are starting to run into some serious limitations, so have been looking around yet again.

The biggest issue with all new packages that few - if any - have any real way to import or copy the items from an older platform, so the manual labor and time could also be an important issue.
