Any ways to simplify my webstore?

3 posts in this topic

Can anyone help me with 2 questions? I've searched the fora but couldn't find anything relevant. I'm a newcomer to PHP and still struggling with the concepts.

What I want is:

1 . a way to cut my store down to a single page of items for sale, with no categories, specials, new items etc. I expect I'll eventually work out what to do by trial and error (or give up and buy Actinic or the like) but if any expert has a useful tip I'd be eternally grateful.

2 . a way to eliminate the register/login process completely. What I want to do is let customers fill their carts then go straight to PayPal to buy: I can't afford the banks' rates to accept payments myself and PayPal is the cheapest service I can find out there. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out a newcomer.

a single page of items for sale

 

All you need is an html page with some Pay Pal 'Buy Now' buttons. osCommerce is overkill for what you're trying to do.

Many thanks for taking the time to read my post. You're probably right about using the PayPal buttons, but I'd hoped to link to a stock database so that customers wouldn't order something I didn't have. On reflection that was naive of me since I wouldn't have known how many opted out before completing the PayPal transaction. Duh!

Thanks again, anyway
