I have an existing business that is as successful as I want it to be (I don't want more work). However, I am looking for a cart that controls inventory better than PayPal (PayPal has allowed purchases of more items than I put in my cart), control order sizes (mostly maximum of a product item), and to has the ability to automatically show items that are out of stock.
I have a large following and have an annual sale where I receive 90% of my income in a matter of a few days that has been frustrating for both me and customers as my product quantities are limited and some items sell out within minutes and with the PayPal cart I've used for a few years people are allowed to put an item into their cart even if it is sold out or, if it sells out before they check out, they get a rude surprise and I get complaints.
The sample pages I see are pretty but I want all of my products (300+) listed on one big page in an alphabetical list format. I know it's not pretty, but it has been very functional and helps me get some products that are less well known looked at more often.
I have thought of different ways to slow down sales, perhaps having a higher shipping cost for the first few days.
I'm open to the idea of hiring an expert but don't even need a cart set up at this time as I just finished my big annual sale.
