Tough Shopping Cart Situation
Posted 26 March 2008 - 03:42 AM
I have an ecommerce site that has been up since 2004. I've just been using the copy and paste Paypal code for my buy now buttons. I need to get a "real" shopping cart for various reasons. My only draw back is that my current pages are ranking very well in the search engines.
Is there a way that I can use either an open source shopping cart or a cheap shopping cart where I can keep my same urls. I don't want to do any redirects or anything like that. I want my current pages to stay the same. I have a little over 30 pages. Is there a shopping cart that I can use that I can integrate my old site into? Is it possible to do a modrewrite that will do exactly what I'm talking about?

You don't need to change your whole site just to add a real shopping cart. Why not just keep what you have, but instead of copying and pasting the paypal link, you simply link people to the shopping cart area of site?
There are lots of recommendations in this part of the forum regarding various shopping cart software. I don't think we need to list them all here again as well.

It has many many different templates and themes out there and you can edit those themes as well if you dont find one you like to match yuor site perfectly. ZenCart is open source and is free.
After you set it up, you can either buy a SSL to process the payments your self, but since you said you already use PayPal you can have them handle all your payment processing. They are very cheap when it comes to processing payments.
But there are other solutions besides ZenCart like OSCommerece, I just like ZenCarts feel better as well as they have more themes out there than OSCommerce.
