Chapter 12. Engaging in eCommerce > Building a Single-Transaction eCommerce Sit...

Building a Single-Transaction eCommerce Site

As I said in the introduction, without any third-party extensions or a significant amount of hand coding, UltraDev’s eCommerce capabilities are fairly limited. That does not, however, mean that you can’t add eCommerce capabilities to your site using just the UltraDev native server behaviors. What it does mean is that features like calculating tax and using a shopping cart are not available. To include these features, you must find an UltraDev extension that suits your needs or customize the available extensions to include these features. In fact, later in this chapter you’ll use a popular shopping cart extension to add to UltraDev’s eCommerce functionality.

To start, take a look at what UltraDev can do in the way of eCommerce. The best way to see UltraDev’s eCommerce capabilities is to add an eCommerce section to a site. You’ll use the Nostalgic Radio Favorites site and add a simple, single-transaction eCommerce system. What this means is that a visitor will be able to browse the product catalog and then purchase a single item. Although this may not sound very functional in the real world of shopping carts and saved profiles, it’s a great way to show you one way to build an eCommerce site.
