Small e-Commerce Store on Site?

Can anyone offer suggestions for adding a secure, on-line store on my existing web site? I don't use the Web Site Builder, but maintain my site with my own HTML editor. I only want to offer perhaps 10 promotional/souvenir items on my site, as well as tickets for site hosted events. Any suggestions for some simple, yet secure?

Hi marlow,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Since you dont use the Premium Web Builder, I'd suggest using OpenCart.

OpenCart is a free open-source shopping cart solution that's easy to use and requires no coding knowledge whatsoever. We have an entire education channel that will help you set up your store and I'm well versed in OpenCart so if you need any assistance you can always post a question.

Since you have an existing website already, I'd suggest installing OpenCart in a subfolder called shop or store and link to it from your main website. That way, it will be independent from your website.

It takes me about 4 hours to set up a fully functional store in OpenCart, and depending on your technical knowledge shouldn't take you much longer than that. Here's a link to our education channel that will help you with OpenCart:

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
