Providing a website with merchant facility for a client ???

1 replies
I am designing a website for a client who needs the ability to sell via the website. I am very much in the dark when it comes to setting up shopping carts, pay pal facilty etc online.
If I want to build him a site where by he just needs to sell one item or service do I need anything other than a simple pay pal buy it now button set up from his account. Does my website need to have a secure status etc... If he is selling say just 3 or 4 services that he wants people to be able to pay for online from the one site what structure and what things do you suggest I need to set up. In the dark on this one so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Peter,

    It really depends what the client's needs are...The more complex the set up you'll probably need some sort of Checkout facility, not just a simple paypal button. To deal with quantities and different products etc...

    You can get a lot of info about sites like these from You might get some inspiration that will help. Also check out the "Offline" sub forum, there's a lot of guys in there who be better able to help and advise on this.

    Good luck with it
