I am just starting to build my website and shopping cart, but after experimenting with several of them, I can not figure out which one will provide the best end result. I basically need for a customer to select one item and customize it in several ways. For example, if they select a teddy bear, they need to be able to select which color of bear, which color of thread to embroider on it, and what they would like embroidered on it. I would also like to be able to offer "packages" that would include several different items and take credit card payments. Does anyone have any idea which direction would be the best to start in with that end result in mind? There seem to be so many different ways to build a website and shopping cart that it's hard to wade through post after post after post...
Thank you to anyone who replies!
