Is this possible?
Secondly- what are the differences between CubeCart & OScommerce? Is there a particular one you'd recommend? My site will be selling Widgets on CD as well as a few other accessories & widget related products.
And finally, does anybody know where I'd be able to find information about registering a business in Canada? Is it even necessary if the store doesn't make significant profits?
Any special advice for a newcommer to to ecommerce? I'm new, but 100% ready to jump in.
With the appropriate addons, OSCommerce can be made into one of the most powerful carts available. I have seen sites with Millions of dollars in turnover using OSCommerce. However, unless you have some technical knowledge, OSCommerce can be very difiicult to customize. Morover, as with any free carts, nobody is obliged to provide you with any support if things go wrong.
You can keep your site as it is. Just simply link to your cart under the words "shopping". You can also link to individual product pages on your cart.
I don't know about Canada but most countries have a grace period before you need a business registration. The only use for a business registration is that you can open a company account. None of our suppliers in Hong Kong have ever required to see our business registration.
I've been looking around and spotted a project called 'zenCart'. Some people *love* it. Others say they ended up going back to osCommerce because of the bugs/problems. I can't decide! heh...
of course it doesn't really matter if I follow through with a good business plan, I'd just like to have a solid foundation.
What do you people recommend?
