View Full Version : need recommendation for shopping cart

07-31-2006, 02:37 PM
hi all, I'm new here.
In over my head by about three feet.
A client wants me to use a shopping cart provider,
merchant account and ssl all combined system to build
a very large web store.

I would imagine that you all will tell me to code it.
But as I said. It is so far over my experience level.

I was looking at yahoo stores and other providers.
Anyone have any advice for me?

This store will quickly have over ten categories
many sub-categories and thousands of designs.

I know a bit of CSS... skilled in html 4.0 only so I need an easy
to use but Good system.
I meet with him tomorrow to give him my recommendations.
he wants no part of it except to hand over his credit card.
I'll be doing the building and marketing.

At your level I'd think you'd be looking for a simple solution...

A friend of mine recently moved his store over to


Pretty simple to use and set-up really.

You can either use & adapt their templates, or make your own site as you usually would, and use their system to generate the code for your add to basket buttons - much like Paypal.

See it in action here:


Hope that's of some help,

Kind regards,
