Hi

I have created commerce sites in the past using OScommerce but now I want to be able to create one myself build everything from scratch as i want to start up my own website selling products

I could always go with templates but I want to create my own look rather then having a prebuilt one

So can anyone give me some advice of what I need and how i should go about doing this

hmmm...i was thinking like u as well but it is sooooo time consuming that i gave up as u need more than one person to do it. I am not tryin to put u off though!

Anways, if u really want to make one yourself then i would say learn php which is an open source language. Once u have mastered it, learn mysql and learn how to integrate mysql with php and you will be fine.

Thats the way i did it (didnt manage to finish it though!)

Good luck!

If all you want is your own look, get CRELoaded and tweak it so it looks and behaves just like you want.

My friend did just this. From looking at the website you wouldn't know it was OSC or CRE and it turns over half a million. Not bad going.

You should be concentrating more on marketing your site then spending hours making your own script which is pretty damn pointless considering you can mod ready made scripts to look completely different.

If you plan to start your own ecommerce business, that's the key reason why you should not try to build your own system. Your business will depend on having a reliable bug-free system. If you indulge your inner hobbyist by trying to reinvent the wheel when there are dozens of great pre-built solutions available, your profits will suffer for it.
