OScommerce
« on: June 04, 2007, 03:26:05 pm »
I've been thinking of selling more original art through my website - there seems to be a bit of interest. I want to automate things a little more than I have, and do that within my own website, because of the two art selling services that I know about, one (Webcomicsnation Swapmeet) sucks, and the other (Comicspace Market) is a subscription-only service and the idea of paying just to test it puts me off a bit.

So I've been looking at OS Commerce. Does anyone on Xepher have any experience working with that? Is it easy to integrate with CMSes?

Hmmmm... How about Freewebshop? I've noticed that Dresden Kodak uses that in a way that's similar to what I have in mind, though from the software's website it appears to be too membership-oriented for my purposes. I want any schmuck coming in from the streets to be able to drop me $ 75 for an original, not just signed-up members :)

Wish I could help, but I haven't tried an online store setup since... frack, I was in high school, so '98 maybe. It was actually my first time learning PHP and mysql, but the project got canceled, and I haven't had a need for one since.

My specialty lately has been online payment and store systems, but I don't have any sort of online software package for it. Usually custom jobs in my case for gateway interfaces.

OScommerce, while I don't care for it, works.
