Shopping carts are usually complicated and time consuming affairs to set up and configure But eOrdering Professional really does make it simple and quick. Ideal for photographers and artists or any merchant that has products that can be sold from an image (the software contains a script to prevent your images from being "lifted").

Basically you create categories add images to those categories either individually or in batches and then use the very easy user interface to set up the options such as price(multiple if required), sizes, tax, shipping costs etc etc plus all design aspects are configurable so that the cart will blend in to your site design. Having entered your options etc a click of a mouse button will build your shopping cart and make a main index page - Index page(s) for each category - View Cart page for each category - Album page(s) for each category - individual product pages for each category - Configure shipping page for each category - Checkout Page for each category - IntraSite Search page and Server Side Processing Pages. It will also create the thumbnails for you. Of course all this is useless if you can't integrate with a payment processor. eOrdering supports ASP email, PHP email, PHP print, Paypal, ECHO, Formmail, ADC and VeriSign PayFlow Pro.

From the purchasers point of view, they will be on a site where they can store orders whilst they move about your site deciding what else to purchase. In the end, you have a product where the user selects what they need, sees the cost, submits the order, and then the order is processed for you. The user can also add comments to each product to inform the webmaster of any errors or indeed request personalisation etc.

In brief the current features are:
* True Shopping cart - This means that items added from one category show up on all category.
* All categories tied together for a one site design.
* No top end to the number of images/products allowed per eSite. (We have tested up to 850 with no problems)
* Easily add, configure, and delete categories.
* Configurable html text, and html page properties
* Html runs on any platform (as long as its web browser supports javascript)
*Several different post processing methods (PayPal, ASP email, PHP email, PHP print)(ECHO,, VeriSign)
* The ability to use templates for registered versions.
* The ability to use Save/Load for registered versions.
* Free updates and support for registered users
* Use custom logos for registered users.

You can create as many sites as you like with a single license for one computer and so is well worth the money. If the pro version is just not viable for you then try either eOrdering Gold or eOrdering Complete, you can find feature comparisons here at
I highly recommend this software.
