     I need a shopping cart that....  

Hello there....

I need a shopping cart that allows many users to input their products into the database for sale. These people who are selling their products would be charged an initial fee for the first product that they upload and a lower fee for subsequent uploads. They shopping cart must be able to resize images (detailed pages vs. results pages) and can have multiple categories.

The buyer than can purchase the product from the site and the transaction would come to me - where I would then inform the seller of the purchase.

Does anyone know of a shopping cart that kind of fits this description - or couple of programs that someone can integrate to do this?

Thank very much.

E-Mail: ozanisin@yahoo.com

Just to clarify........

I need a shopping cart similar to the one on

http://dart.fine-art.com/

where I can build my art gallery online. The only difference would be that users will actuallly be able to purchase the products online rather than simply send inquiries. Any artist will be able to submit their work to the database for a monthly charge.

I am looking for programs AND/OR programmers that can help me build this.

Thanks,

ozan

I do wonder why someone who asks questions like:

>>
How to remove spaces in front and at the and of a value?
<<

...is offering to write a shopping cart.

It was a simple statement and a fair point in my opinion.

If you hired a secretary and saw him/her asking a colleague how to spell, would you not ask her why she applied to become a secretary if she couldn't spell?

Sure, but there's a difference between providing free help and charging someone for coding when you don't know how. That's not a criticizm of your ability as everyone has to learn at some point, but what I'm getting at, is that you shouldn't be offering paid programming until you reach a certain level of ability.

But of course, if a client is willing to pay you then that is up to them :)

I hope you have a nice day!

Try to help people and stop that noncens!

Why ytuing to tell me this noncens. You could use that time helping people and/ or helping me with my cron or image::magick questions. But as I see you only thrying to make some nonsens comments to people who try to help other people.

By the way I am working on my own shop script for 3 years now. It is fully functional and good working. Sometimes you have bad days and nothing will go wright. Then I thought this was a site to get help????????? Even for simple question when you have a temporairly blackout.

RedHum are you willing to help me? I have found a script that can be used when you have no cron access. I am testing it now and it is running now all day. Even on my hypermart server! I however have a few questions.

If not let us stop this noncens!

At least if you are going to use the word "nonsense" so often, spell it right.

Sorry to hear you are not willing to help other people.

Of course it we can go on and on, but what would be the use of talking to someone who is not willing to help. By the way I am from holland and we speek and write dutch. Why not going on in that language?

Hope you are willing to help next time!

(maybe you can use your time better then talking to me)

I think I did. I helped the OP to think about his decision to possibly hire an in-experienced programmer.

Wat een eikel ben je om zo met andere mensen om te gaan!

In nederland geven we antwoord op de vraag die gesteld wordt.

Zal in engeland wel niet nodig zijn!

Astalavista!! Eikel.

Posting in your native language (which you expect me not to understand) is cowardly and childish.

I fully understand what you said, and rude personal remarks are uncalled for.

Racism too.

U bent een stom kind. Ga weg.

I must admit how surprised I am to see how this thread has degraded.

RedRum, your initial thoughts would probably have been better made by [url=http://perlguru.com/gforum.cgi?do%3Dmessage%3Buser%3D671=Send+Private+Message]sending a private message to mmcw2201. Better yet, a reply to the original poster with something like "It's always a good idea to check references and current works before you hire anyone or give them access to your server". That reply would have served to forewarn howdy and may not have been taken personally by mmcw2201.

If howdy wished to hire mmcw2201 (or any other person met on- or offline), the first thing he needs to do is check their posts to see the types of questions asked and/or the quality of responses he gives. He should ask for a resume, references and have the ability to look at completed projects. At that point, he may or may not have chosen to pursue a business relationship.

I'm sorry, but I find the initial post confrontational and unnecessarily embarassing. The last one ("U bent een stom kind. Ga weg." => "You are a stupid child. Leave.") was completely inconsistent with the goals and desired image of this site.

mmcw2201, it's not required of anyone reply to questions. They volunteer their spare time to help people and receive no monetary compensation for their efforts. Their only reward for helping people is their own satisfaction and the occasional "thank you" from the person they helped. Telling someone to stop their nonsense and help isn't incentive for them to help you. I see that RedRum has helped you with many of your questions, so saying that he's not willing to help other people is incorrect, and you know it.

Perhaps he didn't know the answer to your cron question or chose to not acknowledge yet another "write my code for me/fix my problem for me" post. Many of your questions could have been answered by reading the perl or module documentation or trying to understand the error messages you were receiving ([url=http://perlguru.com/gforum.cgi?post=17685]recursion error on free()? Check your free() subroutine or post it. [url=http://perlguru.com/gforum.cgi?post=17671]Don't have command line access or a host that will install modules you need? Get a real hosting account, because you can't make any modules or programs without some form of shell access).

Granted, RedRum's post offered a lot of room for defensiveness, but your personal comments made in a foreign language was also inappropriate. I've never heard of anyone being called a "nipple" before -- must be a Dutch thing.

Poor analogy, IMHO. The ability to spell does not define a good secretary, although it helps. What does help is the ability to solve problems with any available means without bugging your boss. Can't spell a word? I'd prefer to see the secretary pull out a dictionary or use a spell check, but if time is of the essence, asking someone is just fine.

That's what these and most other forums are for. A place to ask questions and help others if you can.

mmcw2201 didn't say anything about charging; only that he may be able to help. As long as he was honest about his capabilities before any fees were determined (if fees were to be part of the picture at all), I see nothing wrong with his post. I'd fire a secretary in an instant if he said he types 85WPM and could only do 30WPM.

Please keep less-than-polite comments private. I'd rather not see this sort of public bickering here.

I don't agree as my post was intended to be directed to mmcw2201 and the original poster at the same time.

Perhaps but after being called a "nipple" and told that English don't understand how to reply properly, I think I had the right to get a little bit irritated and so decided to post my own stupid little Dutch message.

The secretaries ability is irrelevant. The point is that if someone offers to do something after being publically seen to not be able to do it, then it makes me wonder why they are offering to do it.

mmcww2201's ability is not the target of my posts and it seems a few people have failed to see that. I don't have a problem with his ability, but I do have problems with people charging others for services they can't complete. Yes this user may not be charging (although when posting in the "I need a custom script" forum, you do expect some sort of money to change hands), that's fine and dandy, but I have personal experience of in-experienced users charging others for services and then basically posting lots of questions at Gossamer Forum about the paid work because they don't know how to do it, they have even pestered me with private messages asking how to do this and that.

At the end of the day, interpret my posts as you wish, there's not much I can do if you want to think I was "leaving lots of room for defensiveness".

And I would? .....when I make a reply and then get told it is stupid and "nonsens" then I'll reply. Simple as.
