Attempting to setup a web site for a retail vendor. Is it possible to use a web hosting company with VeriSign Payflow for the shopping cart? If so, how will I track all transactions of inventory for the vendor? I'm told that CGI scripts at the webhosting site can be used for the shopping cart, but I'm still unsure about the inventory side. Maybe a SQL server and IIS Server together and just forget about the web hosting site? Just confused....HELP!!

well, two spirits can run on the same box. Ecommerce sites using online purchasing does require a data base in which to send and display the orders placed via the web. There are plenty of ecommerce software packages available for taking, tracking orders, processing payments.

OK I understand that part. I guess the question that I need an answer on is....Is it possible to use a web hosting service to make this eCommerce work? The vendor would like to cut costs by not buying a web server and also make this work. I have a package in mind.. "Storefront" to do all transactions online.

there are tons of web hosting sites that will host your ecommerce stuff but at a cost. Dotster.com has a Commerce site hosting plan for about $70.00 per month see http://www.dotster.com

Whatever flavor of commerce site you want, someone out there will host it for a monthly fee.
