osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Store as a site 'accessory'.

Hello-

 

I'm starting to build a site using osCommerce. However, most osC sites I've seen are stores. That is, they have oodles of products and the whole site just reeks of on-line store (cart is always visible and so on). My site, however, is more of a company site with product information and downloads, and such with the store being less obvious.

 

In other words, I don't want the initial perspective of the site to be a store. There will be "Buy Now" or "Add to cart" sort of buttons on each product page, but I don't want be so 'in-your-face'.

 

Are there any example sites like this? I've seen the list of sites and of the 20-30 I've checked out, most are store fronts rather than company sites with online ordering.

 

I'm mostly just wondering if I should design the -whole- site within osC or add osC capability to existing pages and figure out how to do that... ie. are there PHP commands I can add to existing pages for "Buy Now" functionality?

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Jake

If you simple want "Buy Now", PayPal can take care of that one quicker and easier.

 

As for the design of OSC, as far as I can tell, it's limitless. It just depends on how much time and effort you are willing to put into it.

 

And as for OSC being a suppliment, there is probably a way you could have the OSC frame running in a sub folder "/catalog" and bring the "buy now" buttons to the top for your regular web site and then use the cart to check out with, but I'm not entirely sure of how to go about it.
