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.
"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.
Well i think you need a customized e-commerce solution. If you have style in your mind, you should have a system that fully personalize according to your style, e.g. easy incorporation of e-commerce software solution application, online search engine friendly routing, and site framework, simple check out process and so on.
I would stay away from the open source "free" stuff. We use ecommerce templates and it's low cost and very powerful. You can get an .asp - .php or wordpress version. Respoonsive designs too. I highly recommend it.
