I'm looking to start a small online shop accepting bitcoins.

I like the sound of Bitcoin Evolution (http://bitcoinevolution.com/) as it allows you to add a simple button to your site. This sounds a lot easier than a fully integrated solution.

Alas, I've tried to sign up and they don't seem to be sending out confirmation e-mails. Maybe it's been abandoned?

I'm looking for an 'add to basket' button next to each item (with a quantity option). The customer should then provide their details when they checkout and be given an address to send payment to. I'd then be e-mailed details so I can confirm payment and send out the goods.

Can anyone advise on the easiest way of doing this? I've not the most techy person - I can only code basic HTML and install relatively straight-forward scripts.

If there's not another Bitcoin Evolution type product, which shopping cart software would you recommend? I've used wordpress before so would go for that if it's any good.

Thanks for any advice  Smiley

Apart from something like bit-pay for users already familiar with bitcoins, I recommend setting up a manual fulfillment system of some kind for people that don't have the knowledge to acquire BTC and send them to you. For example, a help page for owners of USD with various methods of payment (cash deposit at bitinstant, ACH transfer to Dwolla, etc) illustrated with screenshots.

Thanks, this is a good idea.

The last time I looked, there was a plugin for zencart to handle bitcoin payments.  Zencart is a pretty flexible online shopping system that probably does everything you want.  Plus it's open source, so you don't have to worry so  much about the company going out of business and leaving you high and dry.

If you're already using something else it's probably not worth switching, but if you're just setting it up it's probably worth looking at.

Please check out this thread. I explain what I did to set up printcoins.com. Here is the shorter form of it:

1) Generate a bulk set of address from bitaddress.org, and copy that into a text editor, and save as csv
2) Open that file in excel, and copy the public addresses, and paste them in 1 text file, and private addresses into another.
3) Import the private addresses into your wallet using this modified version of pywallet:
https://github.com/RobKohr/pywallet
You want to use the command --importprivkeyfile=PRIVKEYFILE
4) Upload the public addresses to your web server and iterate through them (one address for each order.
