Summary

ColdFusion is an excellent back-end tool for e-commerce sites because it can automate so many of the processes necessary to display products and take customer orders. Several ColdFusion developers have recognized this fact and have created prewritten applications, some of which enable you to set up an entire store in just a few minutes.

If you're planning to build your own store application, begin by mapping out the four major elements of an e-commerce site: an administration section, a catalog, a shopping cart, and a transaction section. The first two of these use familiar tools like forms and queries to get data in and out of your products database.
