View Full Version : Non Programmer Needs decision help

01-06-2007, 11:40 PM
I am currently in the market for website development. I have been looking at price comparison scripts and the main one I am interest in is http://www.kaonsoftwares.com/products-price-comparison.html

I am not a coder, I know html, alittle dreamweaver, photoshop, and flash. But coding I have no experience.

Is the above price script worth the money? Would it be wiser to hire a programmer to write a script like this for me personally?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, it all depends on whether this script meets your requirements or not.

Also, If I was to purchase this script, I would probably think that it is quite right for the price they are asking for, if I was not a programmer in either PHP or MySql.

Also, the fact that I would be paying in UK pounds makes this script very appealing cost wise.

However, there are loads of open source script such as osCommerce, which provides similar functionalities and i would personally choose osCommerce over that product. The reason is not just due to the fact the osCommerce is open source, but due to the fact that osCommerce has been around for a while and a lot of people have used it and found it to be very secure.

It would be more helpful if you would be more specific as to what you are going to use this product for...and whether you should choose a product like osCommerce over the one that you have suggested.

I am basically going to have a small price comparison site where you can search for certain items as well as sell your own.

I also just found http://www.activewebsoftwares.com/productinfo.aspx?ProductID=40

I will need to customize the script and all to my sites purpose
