The e-commerce.

General Question


Recommended Posts

Can Oscommerce be used just as a shopping cart only?

I have a web site that used to use the Pay Pal shopping cart but the problem is

PayPal would only hold 127 characters in its description field.

I want to try out Oscommerce

I used to send a form to PayPal directing the money to my e-mail address

Can something like this be done ith Oscommerce?


<form target='paypal' action='https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr' method='post' id=form1 name=form1>

<input type='hidden' name='add' value='1'>

<input type='hidden' name='cmd' value='_cart'>

<input type='hidden' name='business' value='[email protected]'>

<input type='hidden' name='item_name' value='Cover: - "Better" Spare Tire Covers'>

<input type='hidden' name='item_number' value='ST1001BK'>

<input type='hidden' name='amount' value='27.99'>

<input type='hidden' name='return' value='http://www.carcoverusa.com/'>

<input type='hidden' name='currency_code' value='USD'>


And does Oscommerce force the customer to create a user name and password or is there a way around this .........................Thanks for any help!
