Top  Previous  Next


An on-line shopping cart is the web's equivalent the shopping basket your use at your grocery store.  The shopper adds items into the cart, and when they are finished shopping they "check out".


dbQwikSite can create a shopping cart which allows users to buy your products on-line. You have the option of using dbqwikSite's built in shopping cart and check out pages, or you can link to PayPal's on-line shopping and payment facilities.  dbQwikSite does not feature payment collection as this usually requires a secure server and integration to merchant accounts.  Using the built in shopping cart is simple and effective.  Your shoppers fill their carts, and check out.  The Checkout generates an e-mail order to you, and you can then collect payment using whatever method you please and ship the goods.
