I would be very grateful with some help on this.
I have a good basic grasp of web design - I design small sites for friends and family and mainly use Dreamweaver MX 2004 to do so. A friend has recommended to me to a friend who wants an online store designed to sell equestrian products over the net using credit card payment.
I have never designed a secure site before and would be grateful if anyone can suggest some resources that will talk me through the basics on this. Any packages that might be suggested must be very customisable as I am not yet sure what layout my new customer will require!
Equally, as this will be my first "proper" site, what sort of time frame should I be suggesting to complete the project? Is there an industry standard on this kind of thing?
Any and all suggestions welcomed!
