    Freeware Shopping Cart

    I have just had a DVD containing 1400 images thrust into my sweaty paw and have been asked, " Can you get these up onto the website, I would prefer that people paid or donated some money for downloads....do what you can!!!"

    Given such a wide brief I was thinking about the idea of a Shopping Cart site, freeware and with the ability to add in Pay Pal if possible (not sure if it can be done with the freeware though). Having done a Google and been hit squarely between the eyes with the plethora of Shopping Cart website downloads, I am looking for recommendation and experience not just a link to a Google search <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Anybody any good ideas?

    I was thinking of showing just a thumbnail and then later they can download the full item.....even a donation to our charity would be better than nothing.

    Hmm, 24 hours and no responses.

    Maybe everyone else is a bit like me and would like to know the answer too.

    I did the same looking and searching some time ago and found it all a bit overwhelming. So, because my need was not urgent, I put it on the back burner.

    Re: Freeware Shopping Cart

    It is a difficult one as the DVD contains all these images and I think it is probably a bit too much to ask to create a online store as it is a heck of a lot of work for lil' 'ol me doing in my spare time. I may create it over the next few months, ready for the next race.... I have some cool gallery making software and may just create that and they can donate via PayPal if they feel so obliged.

    I'll send you a link when I have finished....I am in the gallery set, but you'll have to find me first <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Not free, but something like this 1and1 e-shop for under a fiver a month may be more cost effective than reinventing the trolley wheel.

    Actually, you may have something here, I will ask the owner of the account if that is any of the options that come via the Hosting company, I do not go via the website tools as I use Filezilla to FTP the files.......good idea that man <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    One option is to create a store on eBay and that'll handle everything for you. Amazon offers something similar too where everything is done already you just supply the items to be sold.

    Jezza,

    I look forward to seeing all the running photos!! I never seem to get sick of all of ours.

    We have talked in the past about creating galleries for displaying photos on the web, so I am interested in the 'cool software' that you have to create galleries. Or should I ask that in a different thread and not hijack this one?

    Hi Joh

    I'll contact you offline with the link to the images gallery.

    However, other Loungers may be interested in Gallery software which converst your images to a Flash presentation, either for the web or for a CD. The free version is great and the only thing you have to deal with is a watermark across the show.....my club members don't care a jot.....it was <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Catharine

    I still seem to have a problem getting it to work as a piece of code fails. I think it is the data issue again, I tried to download the workbook you sent last year but it has been lost post crash <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> Have you a copy?
