Need recommendations for adding e-commerce


Recently downloaded CityDesk and am very impressed - the ease and speed to create a website is amazing.

Question: I'd like to sell my wares via a website created with CityDesk.  Does anyone have any recommendations for a product or service I can link to for a shopping cart, accept credit cards, etc.?

Joel: any plans on adding e-commerce functionality to CityDesk?

ecommerce is sort of a case-by-case basis, but I've gotten CD to work with paypal. Other solutions that are hosted with the vendor should work.

The forum on Mals is pretty good at giving tips on how to get it going.

You can easily add this to CityDesk :)

I've integrated paypal shopping cart and also single payment into citydesk.  All that is involved is adding a form html code which is created for you by PayPal site.

If this is your first attempts at online selling, you might want to consider the advantages of PayPal -- you don't need to handle any credit card date (or be responsible for its security!), they are well known and respected, it takes only a part of one day to fully figure out how to use it, they keep your records for you to read online or to download in typical formats (for excel, etc.)
