Have a look at this package.
Description: (v5.2.005-index-fix)
Perl based shopping system
free on Tsohost.

Also Cubecart
osCommerce
Zen cart.

All web-based and free on Tsohost. There may be others but time for me to do some real world stuff. Many other things too: Bulletin boards; blogs; content management; photo galleries; site builders (Soholaunch Pro and Templates Express); and more.

I started building computers using the 8080 then moved to the Z80. In Jan 1978 I got my first ready built unit, a Tandy model 1 (16k & upper case only).
Within weeks, it was in bits & modified as 48k, upper & lower case & hi-res graphics, 2 double sided floppy drives running Ldos.
It also had an GPO teleprinter linked to it (real printers were still over £1000) & an ex GPO 300 baud modem (as big as a modern PC), & from then on, I was connected to the world smile

On & off, I've has BT email accounts, & they always worked perfect.

I was a Fidonet sysop for a number of years using Amigas, including gating email between Fidonet & the Internet, then changed to PC's in 1995. 1st PC (Gateway) came with MS Office pro which included Frontpage, & my current site was built with Frontpage, although I did play at doing it with a text editor.

I'm playing with 2 or 3 other Web programs, but I haven't chosen a replacement yet.

NetObjects Fusion Essentials is free and brilliant
---------------

Thanks for that, now downloaded.

I'll give it a try, with the others I playing with.

Even the paid for version (version 8) is cheap at $14.95

I suspect Version 8 could have less in iy than current Essentials, seeing as we are now on Version 12 of full.

Yep, after I replied, I did a search & noticed that they were up to version XII.

Hmmm, it's a bit more than $14.95 frown

The big as a house 300baud modems were welcome after after the flexible acoustic job hooked to Prestel. Searching boards for software and struggling alone to set it up to get online, somehow felt better than a click on an IE icon.

I modified the modem, so that the computer could dial out.
As you say, those acoustic modems were rubbish.
When I moved to the Amiga, like the PCs of the time, the web browser was Mosaic, but as you say, it sure felt better then a quick click on an icon.
Both hardware & software could be a battle in those days.

Pulled it down to one of my Windows machines. £8 per template don't seem very free to me.
