    Hello,

    I am working for a customer who needs a barebones shopping cart to sell about 20 products. They already have their own gateway, and just need the shopping cart to email them the purchase. They already have a website with products, they just need a link to put the item in the cart. I would like to host it on their server and for it to be free (or at least cheap).

    I would create the form myself, but I do not know much about databases or how to securely send the information.

    I've looked at osCommerce, Zen Cart, etc, but they seem like overkill. I would use Google Checkout or Paypal, but they charge fees and have their own gateway. I guess I could use Zen-Cart if I had to, but still, I'd prefer to use something simpler. Also, please do not give me anything Mac specific. My customers are primarily PC users.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would go for some open-source shopping cart. Zen Cart is pretty good. Just look for some online documentation on how to install and maintain it. Also, web apps aren't OS dependent, so it doesn't matter what OS the customer is using.

    I would, but I need it to integrate into a existing design by adding a link or something that says add to your cart.

    I already have the design, and I need just the cart and the processing function. I do not need a whole storefront.

    Actinic seems to be some type of software. Am I missing something?
