    picking the right programs for invoicing etc

    I'm looking for a way to make our ordering process more efficient:
    http://www.inkbrigade.com

    Right now the customer enters their info/order on a basic form, which is then emailed to us. We enter it manually into quickbooks, email them an invoice with a link to pay via paypal. We then have to re-enter all the info into UPS. Because of the number of color options, sizes etc its been hard for me to find a shopping cart program that would work right for us, and make sense to the end user.

    I'm going to look into OSCommerce a little more, but does anyone have any other suggestions to cut back on manually entering so much stuff?? We dont really have a huge budget but the time we're spending doing data entry has gotten ridiculous lately.

    You can get a customized shopping cart relatively inexpensively these days. You should also get a merchant account and payment gateway that are compatible with the shopping cart so that you capture the customer's payment information at the time of the order. You can also set it up to accept e-checks.

    you might try our new invoicing product here:
    http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr..._intro-outside

    very straightforward, easy to setup & get started

    if you want something even simpler, you can also use our Request Money service:
    http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr.../index-outside

    or try our payment wizard toolbar for Outlook / Outlook Express:
    http://www.paypal.com/outlook


    hope this helps,
