I'm a clothing reseller and would like to branch out from eBay to my own e-commerce site. I don't currently have the sales volume to justify a monthly subscription fee to a service like Shopify ($30/month). I do have a domain name, access to cheap webhosting with Wordpress and other CMS platforms, and a decent amount of tech knowledge. What are some free or very cheap solutions in 2015 for hosting a shopping cart on my own site and accepting credit card payments with per-transaction fees, preferably with a minimal amount of coding and fuss?
Is there a reason a store would have a policy regarding pulling/versus pushing a shopping cart? Safety? Is this specifically a Trader Joe's policy? Details inside. [more inside]
After a five-year hiatus, I'm resurrectting my website (I make one-of-a-kind toys). I went to paypal to update my Add to Cart buttons and hit a wall. In the old days, I could change a couple variables (toy name and price) in the code - super easy. Five years later, it seems I can't do that anymore. This seems like a crazy reversal in functionality. Can you help? [more inside]

been roped into volunteered to design a website for my Mom's new business, as a means of selling her goods online. The hosting provider I chose offers CubeCart, OS Commerce, Zen Cart, Agora Cart, and Interchange. I do have PHP & Perl skills. Which will be the easiest for her to use and manipulate from time to time, (assuming she's only going to have 10-20 different items to sell)? Which one integrates easily to credit card, check, and P.O. processing, and what's the best way to get that ball rolling?
