I've come across a few sites that say "Powered by osCommerce" at the bottom of the page, so I've looked at www.oscommerce.com but *embarassed face* I'm having trouble understanding what they do.
I have a domain and web hosting with godaddy.com - does osCommerce enable me to build my shop's web pages?

Yes, oscommerce is a shopping car you can install on your hosting space, with all the admin tools you need to add your products. It integrates with a lot of payment processors, like paypal. Not bad for something free!

heh... os commerce isnt *quite* too good to be true... like its buddy Zen Cart, its somewhat difficult to install and customize if you dont know what you're doing... it can be figured out, but its an uphill battle.

Hmm stereoette you're the voice of reason - I've just spent the past couple hours trying to work out how on earth to get os and godaddy to work together! I think website building is the first thing that's ever made me feel really dumb Undecided

I always forget about those little details like ease of use, I'm a programmer. Grin.

Indeed, if you never installed scripts it can be hard, too bad godaddy doesn't have fantastico (well, didn't see on their web site). Fantastico allows you to install many free scripts easily, letting you feel dumb trying to customise it instead. At least it's a step foward. You can also try making a good old html site with frontpage or nvu and use paypal buttons instead, a lot easier but they can only pay for one item at time.
