    not easy especially when you start linking bank/credit card payments (which you need to do) - lots of options available. Get someone what knows what they are doing as there is nothing worse than a crap running shop, that looks basic and like any other shop.

    May cost you a fair bit of money though (if you are going credit card/custom route)..

    Itf there is no credit card its easy.. CC makes it a tad harder and more expensive.. LMF's a good example of a CC shop running X-Cart. With X-cart getting a decent skin is the hardest part of setting it up.

    As Mat rightly says, you need to accept Credit Cards online, configuring this is straight forward depending on which gateway you use, let me know if you need any advice..

    My company makes bespoke shops... but as said before its not easy...

    ours do not run "skins" as they are designed for the customer and then the payment system is integrated.

    there are many ways of doing it.

    I've built my own shopping cart system in php last year for one of the companies I work for sub sites, which works really well, but didnt get around to finishing the card payments etc, because i moved onto something else.. but theres a fair few systems out there which you could either use, use and modify, or get an idea of how they work to build your own one.
