      Integrating Web Site Design and Shopping Cart

      Hi, I am new here and hoping to find some good information.

      I have scoured the Internet to find a template that I like for my website (html). I have made all the modifications to suit my needs for basic links and a prototype page design for my products (nothing uploaded yet). My web host has CPanel / Fantastico which offers 3 shopping cart options ... Zen Cart (I am leaning towards this one), OS Commerce & Cube Cart. I have been to all three cart sites and they are all extremely confusing.

      *** How do I convert my template into compatible shopping cart?

      Why don't any of the cart sites have this info? Does anyone have orderly STEP-BY-STEP instructions instead of finding unordered vague help on the cart sites?

      I really appreciate this forum being available

      Integrating Website Design with Online Store Software

      Hi Twinkle,

      I totally understand your frustration. The problem with those solutions is they were developed for programmers by programmers. Unless you want to spend a lot of time learning programming languages those options are not what you should choose.

      Additionally, unless you're accepting credit cards through other websites like Amazon, Google Checkout, PayPal, or the payment forms available on payment gateway sites only, your credit card security through open source programs cannot be verified without a lot of extra money out of your pocket. You need to find a shopping cart that's PCI compliant.

      You'll also find that showing up in the search results with those free shopping cart options doesn't happen very easily. You should consider an SEO friendly shopping cart. This Google search will reveal some options for you. seo shopping cart - Google Search

      I use Ascender Cart on my two websites and love it. I think you might too.

      Let me know if I can help further.
