website template

Is there any sample template or commercial tools that can allow me to quickly build a website, that search for a category of product and allow customers to view the photos and multiple selection. After the customer check out the product, it display a summary of selection and save to a file or email out. Ideally, the content can be fit into ipad or tablet.


Thanks

Agree with GaryC123.  You might want to look at Magento.

For a very simple system, you can also checkout the following:

Wordpress + WooCommerce combination

Shopify - http://www.shopify.com/ (Paid)

ZenCart - http://www.zen-cart.com/

For the first and last option, you'll find many videos to show you how its done. I'm sure Shopify has its own set of tutorials seeing that its a paid service.

There are the likes of OpenCart and PrestaShop, they are fairly easy to setup but they do require a little bit of commonsense.
Most carts have responsive layouts so they will fit to any mobile device.
And they all have installation tutorials.
But thisn't something you can just set up in 5 mins, could take you a few days to get everything set the way you want.

So, which is the best one based on your experience.

The "best one" is the one you already know and like.  I'm not saying that to be facetious; it's like asking what is the "best vehicle."  Are you hauling a family of 6 to the movies, or do you want to zip along the Autobahn at 250KpH, or do you want to carry containerized freight across the ocean?  There are too many variables for us to tell you what is best for you.

The professional approach would be to make a list of the requirements and the desirables then investigate each of the options you can find.  You will produce a matrix and you will be able to see from the checklists which solution meets the most of your needs.  This will give you a starting point.

All of these cart systems have a community of professional developers who specialize in setup and support.  It might be wise to interview a few of them so you will have someone who can step in and help you, hands on, when you find yourself stuck on something.

As Ray says. Visit the sites they all have demos to the front and back end and pick the one that seems most intuitive to yourself.
I like Magento because of it's power but it is a behemoth of a shopping cart and I wouldn't recommend it to you but it works for me - it's all personal taste.

Are all these coded with php ? Will there be any issue to read the content on different mobile device like Andriod, iphone, ipad .. ?

Yes. Most of these are coded on PHP. They also have responsive themes available so you shouldn't have any problems accessing your store on a mobile device.

PHP is server side code - it has nothing to do with the device used to visit the website.
