First of all, I am on a Mac, and I will need to be able to interact with this website in that way, if it matters. I am somewhat comfortable *editing* codes (html, php, and I can learn pretty quickly), but not writing them. I am a graphic designer, so I will be responsible for what the site looks like. (I promise not to be too much of a pain!)
I need a website store that will enable buyers to make one purchase of several different things, instead of going to 3 places. For instance, I have an artist that has CDs available on Amazon, merchandise on ebay (though I also have a direct line to this seller), and a book on a [url removed, login to view] store.
So, I want them to make the ONE purchase via credit card, and the info calculated for all the shipping charges and items. Then our account places the orders, makes the payments, and puts in their shipping address. And they will of course need to get an email that says you will receive these in separate shipments, etc.
I will need to be able to add products to this on an ongoing basis, but it will be the same few sources over and over. I may have to add a source or two eventually, so I may call upon your services in the future to make updates for me.
I think that is everything. I need the code to work, and I need to be able to add products to it. Simple is best, I will need to be able to implement this into a site that I design graphically.
