Using Front Page to sell a product with a shopping cart.

I built my site using Frontpage and now I want to sell a product. How do I go about this? Do I need to
use shopping cart? How do I use FrontPage to add a shopping cart

I've used and bought about 500$ worth of stuff from comersus. it's only
free if you don't want any features. I found the package to be stuffed with
extraneous files that don't need to be there and I found the code to be
sloppy at best. the support is also very weak (even with the $500
purchase). I've used a lot of other carts too. finally I stumbled upon
www.candypress.com and won't go to any other shopping cart unless a client
needs something that isn't included and would be too time consuming to
custom write.
I can't say enough how tight and clean that candypress cart is and it works
fine with FrontPage. I'd recommend putting it into a subweb to make life a
little easier on the publishing side but that's about the only caveat.

Artie - i was looking for the same and started programming it. but it
leads almost to nowwhere (as sooner or later you want to add other features
like shipping, credit card payment, etc.). Came across www.comersus.com .
it's unlike other tools (especially the ones promoted through microsoft like
storefront.net etc etc) free and open source. However it's entirely
programmed through ASP but with the templates provided you'll be fast to
setup something nicely.

hmmm....now you make me doubt. I am starting with comersus, but guess need to download candypress too then. question: how difficult is it in candypress to customize the layout (e.g. I want only 750 pixel with and I need to imbed it in my web where I have other sites too (e.g. legal disclaimer). chris

Thanks Chris - now I am really trapped. candypress looks nice, but there is a feature in comersus I appreciate a lot: multiple language possibility. as i am in switzerland I need the site at least in German / French / English and comersus gives me that possibility. in addition they just provided some nice templates in their download section (www.comersus.com/freedownloads.html) around which I can work...... you mentioned sloppy routines/scripts - as I am not an expert I can judge on that one, but it appears to me that the site is working fine with a lot of users. do you know if multi-language is 'easy' to incorporate in candypress
thanks a lot

multi language is ok since a lot of the stuff comes from an include lang.
file. you should log on to candypress discussion forum. I'm sure anyone
who has done it will be glad to share the technique.

contact me directly if you like. maybe some of the comersus stuff I bought
and don't use will work for you.

I haven't been to their site in a while and don't remember how they handle
the multi language thing.
I've seen a php cart with multi language and if I remember it's oscommerce.
