Hi, I'm not a website expert, but I do understand how a website is put together. I'd like to create a simple website. I think I can do that with MS Expression Web, which I already have. My problem comes in with a "sales" issue I'd like to incorporate into the site. Here is what I want the site to do.
1). I want to have a file that a user can click on a button and download the file.
2). I need a way to do the following two things once the user clicks the button:
a). Gather information from the user regarding their name, address, etc.
b). issue them a user ID
3). I also need to charge their credit card for the purchase.
4). Then, allow the download to take place.
My problem is I don't know if I need to design this mechanism from scratch, or are there tools out there that already have this "one-item shopping cart" type of design.
Can someone offer me some guidance as to what I should be considering and which products I should research before I begin this project? -- Any help would be greatly appreciated.
