Using eCart and creating database

Using eCart and creating database

My client wants to sell a product that [bold]comes with[/bold] three options. The product and the three options sell for $30.00 and then purchasers can buy additional options (at this writing there are over 50).

I need to construct a database that lists all of the options and make them for sale outside the major $30 purchase. Clients will then purchase credentials to download additional options after they buy the initial product.

I have Data Assist, eCart 4 and am using Dreamweaver CS3. The website is built but the database isn't. My client wants to use PayPal and doesn't want to set up a MasterCard or Visa merchant account.

Can anyone point me to how to get started? I am working in php, the database will need to be in MySQL and every time I try to get started, I get lost.

You would need to use linked tables to set up something like this in MySQL, if you do not understand the concept then you can learn more online here and here for example.

If you are still struggling then I would suggest hiring somebody to write the database for you.
