Im busy with a site and was wondering if any of you know how i can add a shopping cart to my website. I have already created the the db and pages to view and upload the products but am not sure on how payment would work. If anyone has an idea, i would appreciate the input.
Well there 2 main options you can use. Once the user has requested all the products he is sent the total purchases as well as banking details by email. An email is sent to you as well stating that he has made a purchase. etc.
You could use a credit card gateway. I have never actually used 1 or made a website with it. Here is a south african website you can check out.
Managed to get it going, and it works well. Using NetCash as my gateway, they are quite helpful and their prices aren't too bad. I also gave the client the option to make a bank transfer.
Now that the course is finished, think that it is important to practice and write as much code as possible. There is so much that can be done with PHP. Got a few projects lined up, once im finished with the shopping cart, I need to design a online booking system for a bead and breakfast.
