You know it is very interesting the things you tend to learn when you have an 8-5 job where you do web maintenance all day long. Many times I find myself wondering why we can or cannot do certain things. I have discovered one we don't do one in particular....setting up shopping carts. I figured it would be easier for us to create shopping carts for the clients since most don't even know how to delete their browsers history or a simple tab.

Anyhow, nothing personal but if you can help it....you might want to avoid creating your client's shopping cart. Or if you have to set things up at least give them the skills to update them on their own. Why? Because clients tend to end up wanting a lot more than originally agreed upon. If you feel up to making constant changes and ending up updating 200+ products when it originally started out as 25 then enjoy. Make sure you put a limit of products in your contract, costs for adding additional products as well as what you will not do.

Oh and please avoid creating your carts with Access and MySQL database. Yes, they are easier to build, but they also tend to become corrupted as well as consumes your time when you have to fix various error messages.

Just my little quick tip, Ladies.

Great tip! Especially about having everything agreed upon in writing before.
