I hope all of you had a great Labor Day Weekend. Mine wasn't so fun, although I can say I have accomplished "something". I started working on the shopping cart for my website.The picuture above shows the main page of my shopping cart.The next picture shows my test product listings.
I know so little about HTML, not to mention CSS. But in the past few days I have edited a lot of html and css codes in the template of my shopping cart. It seriously gave me headache and I'm still not sure if this is what I should be doing.
I have also been thinking about going with BigCartel instead because they're known for their ease of use and gorgeous templates, but the problem is they have a maximum product number of 100, and I really would like to have a larger store than that. And yes, I know I can hire a professional to finish this up for me, since time is money (anyone out there willing to help?), but part of me also feel if I will be the one maintaining the site I better figure this out so I can fix it if something goes wrong.
I still have a lot of questions in my head and I don't know if they will ever be solved. My questions are mostly about whether to have my own shopping cart and which shopping cart to use. But a few things i'm especially excited about having my own shopping cart is I can add custom options to the product.For example, customers can use the drop down menu to give me their choices of ring size, birthstones, and metal. There will also be a coupon code box, plus multiple shipping options.Thess features are really what Etsy should have done a long time ago.
