Howzit guys,

I'm going to be doing an online shop as a side thing for a family member of mine. What they want is a site, much like OcUk's site. You add products to a basket then check up and pay for it via credit card or bank transfer. After that an automatic email gets sent to the user.

Would this involve a SQL database?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Yup, you'd usually have a database for all your products, categories and maybe basket.

You'd also possibly store order information and maybe other payment processing information. E.g. IPN data if using Paypal.

You could use something like CheckoutCC or similar. Assuming you dont have any programming knowledge. For a basic shop, use PHP.
