Hey all,
I posted my problem in the Php section, but I think I should post it here as well.
I'm opening an Ecommerce site, I'll be selling items for the online-game Diablo 2*

As a reference to what I want, check how this person has done it:
http://d2sale.com/tw/store.aspx?myserver=0

In other words, I need an efficient way to upload 400-500 products with their Picture, Name (title), Description, Price, add-to-cart button and quantity (form/pull down menu). They also need to be categorized.
I also need a search bar, like the one on that site, where somone can type in the name of an item, and the results will come up (inside of the current window)

Contact me and we can work out a way of doing this, because I'm not entirely sure how it's done (MySQL?)

Or if someone would rather make the entire site, I'm also open to that possibility.

At first I was going to figure this all out by myself, but I figure it will just be easier to have somone do it for me rather then having to spend the time to learn this stuff. The site needs to be up within a few weeks time.

Contact me to work out a price, or just post here how much you think you can do any of the aforementioned things for.

*For the record, I'm actually selling the time it took me to gather these items in-game, rather then the items themselves, all items remain property of Blizzard Entertainment. :P

...you know that disclaimer is meaningless and doesnt protect you. You're breaking the games EULA, saying that doesnt make it any different.

This may or may not be true, I know for a fact that Blizzard has never attempted to take any action against the these types of sales (wether in diablo 2, or in World of Warcraft), they've never requested for an auction in ebay to be removed, or for a website to be taken down. These sales draw more attention to their games, and makes players play longer, which increases their profits.

An example of a company that does take action, would be Neopets - try listing an auction for 'neopoints' and see how long it stays up there :P

That being said, I realize I'm not (technically/legally) anymore protected then I was before using this argument, so if after 11 years they decide to start cracking down and start removing all the item sites, I suppose I'll have to find a new avenue of business, but until that happens...
