    Is it possible to use this shopping cart from Russia ?

    I don’t want a shopping cart. I just want to be able to add the code for items from Amazon and other places. And I can’t get the code added anywhere.

    Nothing answers my questions about how to add Amazon code. This whole set up on godaddy is far from easy. I am tremendously disapppointed!!!!

    @ rabblebabble. Yes you are correct. Go Daddy needs a high level competitor. Their website tonight is truly atrocious and very, very generic.

    Send out press releases, flood the web with free releases to inform the public as a starting point.

    @rabblebabble. I would use a wordpress template. That’s my next step.

    I also have been asking about the html code placement for goods form amazon with no response from anyone. If you find out please let me know and i find the godaddy web site builder so very hard to use, ive spent hours trying to figure it out with no joy. Time to go to another web site builder.

    Just wondering is there is a time frame for receiving orders?
    I got my website, products,shopping cart, SSL, keywords, tags, Facebook, published,launched all that know was needed in Nov. and not one inquiry or sale. I am beginning to feel all that work was for nothing? Any suggestion or words of encouragement?

    To be honest it is very very far from easy, and it would help to know BEFORE hand that you can only add bulk inventory using an Excel Product Template, and bulk assign images using Excel Image Template. If you are considering the Quick Shopping Cart, then please be aware that if you have a very large inventory, different varieties and such, it will probably take a few days to more than a week just to have your site fully ready to publish because of how manual the most important stuff is.
