Hello: Replying to my own post here, with more details (thanks Ron for the hint!). I'm a seasoned web developer, but my experience is almost all in academia, so I've never had to develop an e-commerce site (I'm doing this as a favor for a friend). My hosting folk are fully LAMP capable, so I can (probably) install anything I need to get going. The client has only a few items for sale, and would never grow beyond a few hundred. There isn't much need for a full-blown CMS (at least for now, probably never), but it would be great if the cart application could handle basic chores like a main page, and drill down through categories to specific products. Other wants/needs are: Template and/or CSS-driven design options Ease of use (for the merchant) Security Feature-rich shipping and payment options Some more specific questions include: What to look for as far as security goes? What about payment options and gateways? Any opinions? Support (both payed and free)? I know this is a broad request, so thanks for your time!
