i run a kind of small diy store but it's really disorganised and takes a lot of effort to receive payments, keep up to date with orders, etc.

i was thinking of switiching to a paypal shopping cart, does anyone use them? are they good?

it's my dream to be able to live off stuff i make and sell one day  Roll Eyes

I started off using the PayPal shopping cart which was fine, but I didn't like how unprofessional it looked to jump from my items into the PayPal environment.  So I switched to the free shopping cart system from http://www.mals-e.com which was really easy to set up.  Through Mal's, the user goes into a shopping cart that looks like it's part of your site, and doesn't get pushed into the PayPal enviornment until he/she chooses PayPal as a payment option.  What I also like is that Mal's lets you create coupon codes and lots of different shipping options, but still lets you have users pay with PayPal.

i also use mals-e, and am really pleased with it. looks more professional than going straight to paypal, and i've had about four "pay by check" orders since i started using it. before that ... zero.

and it's free, so how do you beat that?

I agree! biggerkrissy, your site is fabulous!!! Smiley

I'm also going to check out www.mals-e.com. Yay! Free!  I intend to put up a website sometime in the near future, after I've finished a vast amount of Christmas gifts.

thanks, everyone! my site had a recent makeover - tara at plainmabel.com is the genius behind most of the new look. i highly recommend her for anyone who's looking to take their website to the next level. i'm thrilled with her work! she used my colors and my overall site "atmosphere" and amped them. it still feels like me, only - well, - bigger.
