Description

In this comprehensive guide to creating an e-commerce website using PHP and MySQL, renowned author Larry Ullman walks students through every step—designing the visual interface, creating the database, presenting content, generating an online catalog, managing the shopping cart, handling the order and the payment process, and fulfilling the order—always with security and best practices emphasized along the way. The book uses three e-commerce site examples, so students see the widest possible range of e-commerce scenarios. This fully updated and expanded second edition includes an additional modern payment processing example that reflects changes in PayPal’s options and methodologies.
