Mallsurfer is a shopping cart generation software. It creates a
"virtual store front" with various items for sale listed under categories. I
tested it out by creating a giftbasket shop. I created categories for house warming
giftbaskets, birthday gift baskets, graduation giftbaskets, etc. Under each category, I
listed one or two items for sale. I then chose the font colors, the layout of my new
giftbasket shop, the shipping prices for my giftbaskets, the mailing address, and the web
site I wanted my new shop to be uploaded to. I then hit the "create" button
Mallsurfer generate all the html (the menu, the checkout page, the category listing page,
uploaded it to my website.
I would suggest that anyone wanting to use this program have at least elementary knowledge of html. Why? If you want to make changes to one of the html files that Mallsurfer creates, Mallsurfer will not edit and upload just that one file, it will upload everything, which may take some time for larger shops with several categories. Another reason why the user should have a minimum amount of html knowledge is that Mallsurfer only includes limited meta tags, descriptions, and keywords for each shop created. Some users may want to include more keywords, or change the description, for greater web traffic and this entails tweaking some of the html files beyond which is allowable under Mallsurfer shop.
Despite the few problems I encountered using Mallsurfer, I still recommend this program to any wannabe web entrepreneurs with a limited budget hoping to make a few bucks from their virtual store on the net.
