We have about 20 years experience working with this system and can integrate it fairly easily. Basic implementation starts at £20.00 for the first product/item and decreases to £10.00 per product/item thereafter. (To enable 5 product lines would cost £60.) A simple PayPal implementation can be seen here... Country Spa Beauty Treatment Gift Vouchers. More advanced shopping cart systems take more time to implement and consequently cost a bit more.
