    Question for internet shop owners

    An organization that I am a part of is considering adding an online shopping cart to its website to sell event tickets. They also cry that they don't have enough money to give us a raise that isn't insulting so I am curious to know what one should expect to pay to add a shopping cart to their webpage. Can anyone shed some light on this? They have a proposed amount in the budget but I'd like to know if they are over estimating or not.

    Thanks

    Several years ago, I was on the board of a nonprofit that was thinking of doing the same. But it would have required a different web account, since we had a discounted rate available only to nonprofits and including a prohibition against web-based sales. Enough of us were worried we'd spend more in monthly fees than we'd recover by the hypothetical sales and we didn't do it. I moved on to other things, but I just checked and they still don't sell on-line. With all the movers and shakers involved there, I'm sure the idea gets tossed around now and then, but they must keep making the same decision we did years ago. By the way, we were looking to sell merchandise, not tickets. Check websites of similar organizations you know of and see if they sell online.

    I have not tried this shopping cart yet, but it might be something to look into: http://www.mals-e.com/
