The e-commerce.

Need some general advice on what to do....


Recommended Posts


Im new to ecommerce (esp. developing a site) and need some advice on what to do. Maybe Im just too new a person to web designing or just to ignorant on the subject...but can someone please explain how i can use oscommerce to help me and my site.


Let me explain what im hoping to accomplish:

I have a website where i re-sale clothing. I need to find something that will help me list my inventory and sell it. I would use asp to do this generally, but my webhost does not support it. So now I need to find a way to get around it. I currently use FrontPage 2002 and have a basic website for just browsing...not much else. I will be using Paypal as my source.


Can anyone please tell me how to get started and if oscommerce is a good choice for my website?

In case you want to look at what im trying to...here is my site: http://www.lechatnoir.netfirms.com


Thanks in advance and hopefully I havent made anyone "cringe" at dealing with a newbie.

Os Commerce will do what you want, however it take s bit of HTML knowlege, you need to learn some PHP and how to use CSS. You also need a web host that has MYSQL database and supports PHP.


If you want to learn more about how the program gets installed and basic modifications go to http://www.oscdox.com and download the installation manual. Read the forums. Almost everything has been answered at least once...:-)
