How long to create new shopping cart using eCart?

How long would you think it would take me to do this project using eCart?
I am an old programmer and I have created a few sites but never a shopping cart.
I want to build this shopping cart for a restaurant. Nothing too fancy. Right now we have less than 50 items to sell. These are my current requirements..
1. Allow customer to select time of delivery or pickup
2. Allow customer to select Deliver or Pickup
3. Show deliver charge or pickup charge
4. Keep a running total
5. Display all menu items with price
6. When mouse is moved over and item a popup will display full details about that item or have them on the page all ready
7. Option for customer to cancel order before placing order to clear cart
8. create an account for customers and there past orders
9. Send email to notify restaurant of order
Thanks for your input,

It's imposible for me to answer this question for you. It depends on far to many unknown factors.

How comfortable you are using eCart

How Knowledgeable you are with the development concepts and practices needed for each of the requirements you list.

How fast you work.

a good developer could have this completed in as little as a couple of days, but I really cant say how long it will take for you to complete it.

eCart can create the add to cart system, and the checkout system

the checkout can be cancelled at any time.

you will need to add the delivery or pickup choice, and the delivery or pickup time choice to the checkout page.

you can configure rules in eCart to charge shipping and show those charges, how long it will take to configure this in eCart depends on how complex it needs to be

the eCart display manager can be used to add a quick cart to each page that shows a running total and quantity count,

for creating the account, you will need to use security assist, sending the email, you will need to use Universal Email. There are tutorials on the eCart support page for adding registration to your cart.

Thank you. I knew it would be hard to be exact.. I was looking for just an idea or guess. I have done a lot of programming but not this. Your input was very helpful.
