I'd like to start using databases with my websites. I use PayPal shopping cart now and want to automate adding sales items for my customers product. It seems like PHP/MySQL is the easy answer. Am I right?
I don't really want to build a whole cart just most of a cart. More of a catalog that also has PayPal 'add2cart' buttons for each item.
Can PHP buy links/PayPal button code and/or images/thumbnails be stored as data in MySQL fields?
Does a simple script/setup for this already exist?
Could I start with a simple cart script and replace the sales functions with PayPal code?
Could I start with a simple catalog script and the add my 'buy links'?
Any light you can shine on me would be wonderful.
Should I bother going down this road at all? Is this PHP stuff any good/worth learning?
