Hi guys,

I need to build an ecommerce site for a client and I have the general design figured out but I can't find a solution that works for me. I need to be able to adapt the html/css to my design as well as have a search engine, that I can customize the look of the results.

I have looked at several solutions but they either have a limited trial period or are too complicated for me to get them off of the ground. I am new to ecommerce and was hoping someone had some advice for a solution where I don't have to adapt my design to fit into a template.

I know plenty of people have asked this question because I have been searching for an answer for weeks. I thought maybe I can get a better result if I asked the question directly.

I like the idea of a hosted situation because there isn't a lot of setup but I'm finding that those aren't very customizable. Any help will be much appreciated because I'm tearing my hair out over this. Thanks in advance.

I have looked at several solutions

It would be helpful to list these, so it's obvious what you don't want. What is your client selling?

By any chance are you looking into having 100% control over the site (basic website...) or a CMS (wordpress, joomla, drupal)...

As pritaeas has said before, can you tell us on what you want and don't want and what your client is selling?

I know plenty of people have asked this question because I have been searching for an answer for weeks

How much time has your client given you? If your short on time, I personally think it's easiest to go with Wordpress or drupal.

After understanding your requirements, I think need a custom ecommerce solution. If you have design in your mind, you should have a platform that fully customized according to your design, e.g. easy integration of shopping cart, search engine friendly navigation, and site structure, simple checkout process and so on. Moreover you can also integrate some advanced marketing and customer services managment features to get maximum output from your store.

Don't forget inventory managment, especially when you are planning for large number of products.

Now, the solution that I am talking about is, e-Smart eCommerce Suite (Your best Custom Ecommerce partner).

Key Features:

  • User-friendly admin panel
  • Highly advanced inventory management features
  • Custom-built shopping cart checkout process
  • Multiple real-time shipping rates

You can head over to Ydeveloper.com for more info.

Hi there!
On Friday, I'll be launching the worlds first hosted WordPress e-commerce solution, only £25 per month.

As you have a custom design you could get someone to code it into a WordPress theme, send it to support than we can upload it just for use with your site.

GatorSnap, the worlds first hosted Wordpress e-commerce solution

Thanks!

Kind Regards

"Virtuemart" is a powerful free extension for the Joomla CMS. If you have little or no experience, you can find Joomla templates all over the shop, but i'll always suggest hiring a developer if you don't know.
