I am in need of a webmaster that has more technical knowledge than me.
I know how to manage ftp, dns, and all the htm pages.
I need help attaching a shopping cart system and integrating it on a my hosting service.
I have just added a new hosting company, and I need to migrate all my data over the next several months.
I need help getting up a similar setup on the new host as I have on my current host. I also need to switch shopping cart services, as my current service will not be available to me after the switch. I have approx 200 websites that all stand alone in htm coding, but they currently run thru the one central cgi shopping cart.
I need a search engine friendly shopping cart that can be easily edited. I know if I go to a php system my rating will drop, as this happened to my associate. Im very concerned that if I go to an asp system that my rating will drop. I have a good rating now. Ive seen much debate about static pages, and really want to stay with htm for seo reasons. No sense in taking the risk if I dont have to.
I have managed to load zen-cart to my site now, and set up the 4 products, and set most of the settings where I think I need them. But my skill ends there. Im not sure how to integrate that to my htm. Nor am I sure Zen cart is the one for me. I have also (with hostgator), carts at no charge: os commerce, cube cart, and agora cart. But im not sure which are the best choice for me. I dont see how to add the additional drop down boxes to the product page.
Webmaster to help me:
--log into my host and load a shopping cart that fits my needs
--set up 2 categories with 2 products each, 4 products total
--program my choices on the shopping cart feature
--log into host and set up one more domain to read into the exact same shopping cart as above
--tell me what code to put into my htm code to show a product at a time, or an entire category of products
--help me customize the shopping cart page customers see upon checkout
--help me integrate the fedex shipping module if applicable
- Static HTML Pages
--need all domains to load from the central shopping cart (I dont want to have to visit 200 different locations to print orders.)
--need to be able to print orders, print a label, send customer a confirmation email for the order, customer email notification of shipment.
--Product pages follow a URL Structure that I can customize. I currenlty have very specific directories for each product line. [url removed, login to view] (definately prefer htm coding)
--if we could integrate the fedex system so we can click and create a fedex shipping label that would be awesome.
- I would like the back end features and other features found in OsCommerce or Zen Cart. If you can tweak OsCommerce or Zen Cart or another open source shopping cart to operate around my requirements that is great with me. I need to make sure the shopping cart accepts Paypal.
--I currently have several add to cart buttons under one product image to let the customer choose the product with specific options. Like sets that can come with the base product, or add on pieces of the product, and some of our items have the product available as shown, or customized with engraving. So if the software allows for drop down boxes to customize a product page, or allows for several add-to-cart buttons below one product that would be great.
If you can do a good job, and provide the solution I need I have more work to send your way.
I am open to all suggestions. I just need a shopping cart that is search engine friendly which allows for unique meta tags and unique page titles, and unique URLs. I do not want dynamic URLs to be indexed.
Thank you for your time.
