Do I need webassist, dataassist, or databridge to build a full shopping cart website?

I recently purchased the webassist extension because you advertised that I could build a full shopping cart with all of the features needed to do so, now after trying to use the extension I have been unable to build anything because apparently I need dataassist to do so which was not advertised when I purchased webassist, then upon doing further reading about dataassist it seems that it is now called databridge which seems like what I needed in the first place which cost $399. I am not sure what to do and what to use now because webassist seems to have all different things being advertised. So this is my question, what do tools do I need to get a full shopping cart up and running and if I need databridge to do so can I get a refund from the webassist extension so that I can purchase databridge because really I think you misrepresented yourselves in your advertising of a product that does not work without other extensions which was not mentioned in the advertisement in the first place.

no, you don't need to have Data Assist or Data Bridge to build a shopping cart.

using Data Assist can speed up the creation of the catalog pages in your shop, but you can also create them manually using Dreamweaver.

The tutorial for creating the catalog pages are written from the point of using Data Assist, because that is the quickest way to do them.

the Database getting started guide will show how to create a basic set of pages without using Data Bridge:

that you can then add the cart functionality to.
