Using eCart for static site without database
I'm adding an ecart shopping cart to my site. Due to the steep learning curve and insufficient training manuals and tutorials for your products, I do not wish to deal with a database. Your FAQ states that a database is necessary for order details and information to be stored. Is this necessary? My site will not be generating a huge volume of sales. Can I just have an email sent to me when an order is submitted with the order info: customer's name, contact info, shipping info, and items ordered and then enter that info manually on my computer? If I can set it up to do this, it would be sufficient for my needs.
P.S. Why not have a product manual? It seems like at least 400 pages of instruction is needed to fully explain how to use a product like Dynamic Suite. I would be willing to read it if such a thing existed. That might make it possible for me to create a dynamic site. Instead, I spent money on something I am incapable of using, or even learning to use without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for one on one phone support. The forum is not a viable substitute for a manual. It is more like an incomplete manual with the steps out of order and hidden.
