View Full Version : Best way to deal w/ the ecommerce part of site?

10-27-2007, 03:46 AM
Iím seeking advice. My site www.cellocelli.com (http://www.cellocelli.com/) is in large part an ecommerce site. It is designed using html, css and flash. I currently am using PayPal. Iíd like to have a more elaborate shopping cart and one that remained within my site but I donít want to have to totally redo my site design in PHP. I spent a fair amount of time working with osCommerce and couldnít get it looking anything like Iíd like. The site is more than an ecommerce site so Iíd like to have a lot more design control than I could manage with osCommerce.

As my business picks up Iím worried about customers complaining about dealing with PayPal. (Many people think that you must have a PayPal account and that itís a hassle.)

I donít have the budget for the extra $40/month or more that a merchant account would charge and Iím basically wondering if there are shopping carts available that are not PHP based that are more adaptable than PayPals.

I also should be looking into some site security which I have not doneÖ

Thanks for any advice!

heres one in asp HERE (http://www.znode.com/)
but i would just go with using php, its actually not THAT hard to make your own shopping cart, just pick up any php/mysql book, and they all show you how... that way you can customize it any way you like
