This example is not a replacement for a professional (database driven) ecommerce solution like oscommerce or Magento. However you can easily integrate this lightweight solution into your Web Builder website and you will have full control over the look and feel.

To keep this example as clean as possible we left out most of the input validation, but you can easily add this yourself using the form validation tools in Quick 'n Easy Web Builder.

You must have some basic knowledge of PHP to be able to modify this example!
The code in this tutorial is provided "AS IS". The code was designed for PHP 5.x
