ecommerce portal like ebay thru sites

Hi,

 

I am trying to build a ecommerce portal like ebay. I am using Sites with Customer Portal for authentication. However , I want my guest users to be able to browse entire site without logging in as well . In such a case do I need to expose every VF page as new Site?

Hi Rahul,

 

I understand that you wish to create an e-commerce website using sites.com or Force.com sites.

If you wish to only show data as read only - then you might not need authentication but when you need to save there session for them to add items to cart - you will have to ask them to login - where customer portal will come into picture.

Hi Rahul

If you're still wanting to use Salesforce as an online eCommerce portal, you might find the Venue application useful.

Venue is a native eCommerce app that’s built entirely on Force.com; it turns Salesforce into an eCommerce platform. You’ll use the products, prices, accounts, contacts, etc. from Salesforce to run the website/store and all your sales and transactions are recorded in your Salesforce database.

Venue works with Salesforce Sites and Customer Portal (and Communities). Guest users can browse products, add them to a shopping cart, and complete purchases (i.e. make payments) all without requiring login/authentication. (Venue supports login/authentication via Customer Portal / Communities, but it is optional).

Venue is a full-featured eCommerce solution. You can fully customize your eCommerce website, process credit card and PayPal payments, get integrated tax and shipping modules, and advanced product management and discounting features.

You can learn more from the Venue website:
