Hi I am a newbie and just getting my business off the ground. I realise to be competitve I have to learn ecommerce and am a student of lynda.com who bless her heart keeps me from making monumental mistakes. I wanted to purchase some user friendly shopping cart software as I dont have all the skills to make my own. Thanks

you could use a free one also if you want to familiarise your self with them.
zencart, cpcommerce etc

We tend to use Zencart. It is free and works really nicely.

Does ZenCart integrate/support PayPal as the gateway/processing?

Yes. It can also use some others. Nochex, WorldPay etc.

Hi - Can you integrate Zen Cart into an already established website and add their backend into your already established backend?
I know how to do sessions and know how to upload images and create thumbnails but don't know how to do a payments e.g. either to paypal or print order.

I think Zen Cart might be too bloated for what I need to build but there are no good tutorials online especially to show how to add GST tax to products and have special prices etc.

Any suggestions?

have a look at cp commerce it has a template system so adding to your own design is not to difficult to do
