Introduction to ecommerce 

neatComponents provides a fully flexible environment for building ecommerce or shopping cart systems integrated into your website.

This is not a simple 'template' system. Instead, you retain full control over the cart design and operation, with fully customizable fields, texts and prompts. Data is stored in the standard neatComponents data model of Forms, Queries and Views, where you have complete flexibility over the field structure and appearance.
