Bear47 Posted April 1, 2005 Share Posted April 1, 2005 A potential customer who was planning on using a third party for shopping cart/billing, now wants to put simple eCommerce on his site. I have been recommended to look at osCommerce, but I have no experience with it. I need to give him a quote for the cost of doing this. I have never built an eCommerce site, but I have experience in writing my own PHP/mySQL scripts. I mostly do custom programming, rather then just web site design. I have provided him an estimate on the web site, I just need to make a guess on how many hours it would take to learn the basics of osCommerce and integrate it into the site. The site will have 25 to 50 products, the product will change 10%-20% every month. The products are custom made, so a easy way of warning of low inventory would be nice. Customer will pay either through PayPal, or if by credit card, then an order will go to the factory, who will phone the customer to get the credit card number and authorization. The ability to handle pricing in US or Canadian dollars would be desirable. If anyone would care to make a rough estimate in hours it would be appreciated. Since I won't be able to bill him for the learning curve, an estimate in dollars of what would be a reasonable charge would be nice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
