I need in a perfect world,
a typical shopping cart where the user browses the site selects the items they want to purchase and then completes the transaction.
I donít mine having to mess about with scripts but I would struggle to edit them to any great extent.
I have made many websites before but not added ecommerce to one yet.
Iím not looking for free services, Iím being realistic and am quite prepared to pay a couple of hundred for the real deal.
The most important thing is that I can design the site myself.
Any help from you good people of webmasterworld would be much appreciated. ;-)
If you have a server to host the software on:
PHP - osCommerce
Perl - Interchange
Both are free and open source. Both will do very well to add to an exsisting site and full featured programs.
If you need to host the shopping cart elseware, try ShopSite. Though not free, it looks good for the price.
Even the big names providers that cost hunders of dollars per month have bugs in their software and these companies have a team of developers dealing with these issues.
You can't assume you can can pay a programmer a one off fee of a few hundred dollars and expect to things to work flawlessly or even well.
You get what you pay for.
