DataAssist E-commerce examples?

DataAssist E-commerce examples?

Hi

Is there any users on this forum that have any 'live' examples of e-commerce stores that they have built using DreamWeaver and DataAssist that I could see?

Also, is it necessary to use an eCart cart for the checkout in a site that is built with DataAssist or can you use a third party cart such as RomanCart ?

Thanks

I just had a look at RomanCart and it looks like your cart would be stored on their server. I tried to look at the registration page but the server timed out and I couldn't get there. Not a good sign if you are going to depend on them for all of your sales.

It's a little more work, but having total control over your shopping cart has many advantages. The fewer outside dependencies, the fewer things there are to take down your site without your knowledge.

Hi,

I like the idea of using eCart so that the customer isn't taken away from the host site but I'm not clear as to how easy this would be to implement.

In terms of the database that DataAssit would work with. I would be looking to use a mySQL database. Does DataAssit create the database table needed for my e-commerce store during the setup?

How much control over the dynamic pages do you have in terms of the layout, is it possible to use CSS to control the design? Also, is it possible to use custom icons within the dynamically pages?

Thanks

You can get the database you need here:

You have complete control over all aspects. All of the tools are designed to work together.


You might want to take a look at PowerStore under Solutions. It's a ready made store built using the WA extensions.

I have seen the pre-built shop PowerStore but it doesn't look like that you can customize the 'look and feel' of the store to match an existing site, is that the case?

I need a solution that will let me add e-commerce functionality to a site design of my choice. The solution must be able to have an admin area where a user can go in and add a new product and then for that product to be added into the live store automatically. Make sense?

The product eCart, does that work with any Internet Merchant account? i.e. PayPal Payments Pro UK or SagePay UK?

Thanks

The feature list for eCart is here:

on the Features tab.

All of the WA extensions are designed to add functionality to your own designs using CSS, templates, and standard pages.

You create the backend admin area with DataAssist.

Maybe this section will make it clearer:

The eCart features page mentions Protx and WorldPay, is the UK versions of these supported?

I'll let the WA guys take this question, as I'm in the US.
