This tutorial will guide you to develop an E-commerce Shop or Online Product Catalog Website easily using opencart.com free software.
You can use this method to sell online by taking payment through debit/credit cards, bkash, bank, pay on delivery etc mode.
Or you can just use the catalog system to display a list of items in different categoreis to your clients without doing direct sales for information purpose.
For this tutorial we will use this free & opensource software from: www.opencart.com
The webiste will look like this demo: http://220.127.116.11/~prioponn/
Login to your control panel at http://cpanel.yourdomain.com or whatever was provided by your host.
Inside your cPanel click on Softaculous Apps Installer.
Select OpenCart. Search if needed.
Click on install. But first filll up the fields related to your desire.
After installation is done the webpage will give you the url to your Admin area.
In our case, we got this message:
Congratulations, the software was installed successfully
OpenCart has been successfully installed at :

Login using the user name and password that you have given earlier.
Then setup your products categories, then product entries with images and then pricing.
