    How to set up a shopping cart and payment gateway

    I'm trying to implement shopping cart/ ecommerce system for one of my clients, but I don't know where to start.
    Can you recommend any good ready made shopping cart/ ecommerce system ?

    No script is preinstalled. But you can install it easily thru fantastico using the CPanel provided by your hosting company.

    You will be given the admininistrative data after the installation.

    Ok I managed to install it. Its great! So powerful... wonderwhy I never discovered this before.... only thing now is to customize the design ? Is this possible ? How do I change the template and get rid of the unnessasary panels ?

    Another thing about the currency. I change RM as default with value of 1.000 .. is this correct. Will it have problems when charge to credit card e.g. will the system think its still in US dollars and bill in US ?

    Also, lets say my client already has a merchant account. So now what do I do. I go to commerce payment and sign up for Payment connector Pro ? Which is the most basic package for people who already have merchant account ? Because the pricing setup fees is so high RM2800 and license is RM4800 per annum. Is there a cheaper package without all the extra features.

    Presently I'm looking into osCommerce and found customization is quite easy. You can read the help files (PDF format) available in the original installation pack to get an overview of how to customize osCommerce. Every steps have been depicted there thoroughly.

    However as a quick starting point you can follow this link:

    But the only things that It couldnt' support Multiple Currency.. you can't set your price in US and RM at the same time?
    Do you wonder how to make your banner ad stand out from the rest?
    YinnPixel.com knows the answer.

    If you r new to selling products and services on the Internet, u must better get a better understanding of how it works.

    Typically, all shopping carts share the following structure. A shopping cart normally includes:

    - a database that stores information such as product, customer data, order information, etc.
    - a storefront that displays this information to store visitors (e.g. product detail pages, search pages, checkout pages, etc.)
    - an administration area that allows you, the store administrator, to manage ur store. For example, this is where u add products, set up shipping & payment options, process orders, etc.
