multiple store management

I am a newbie and ran across this site.  Looks like cpcshop is going to be the real deal in what I am wanting to do.  I was wandering if anyone knows of or has done this.  I am wanting to pull stuff from several different sources to one site, ie: cafepress and my own products from different sources?  I know like cafepress has its own checkout deal and I am fine with each "source" having there own checkout deal.  That being said, does anyone have any good ideas?

If you have a premium store on CafePress, that's what your shopping cart can look like from your cpshop site.  That's true whether you're using affiliate links.

Check out http://www.peaceandloveshop.com.

That site pulls three sections from www.cafepress.com/criticalgraphic which is one of my CP premium shops.

It also pulls affiliate products from cafepress.com/esangha and others.

I created the premium shop www.cafepress.com/peacenloveshop to define custom HTML so the shopping cart skin looks like my cpshop. However, the CP store peacenloveshop actually has no products of its own. All its links point to my cpshop, www.peaceandloveshop.com

You can also check out www.criticalgraphics.com -- it pulls most of the same products as www.peaceandloveshop.com, and a few more, The skin is the primary difference.

Thanks, but I was talking about pulling items from other places besides "cafepress" stores.  Like if I did crafts or something (which I dont) and had my own product to sell.  Case in point, I am becoming a distributor for some truck parts stuff and will have a website for it.  I would also like to have some cafepress shirts on there for sell as well.  Just wandering how to make those co-exist on the same site.

Thanks

Ahhh.  Then there are two ways you can accomplish this.  

1> Embed cpshop into a store built to sell your other stuff. You should take a look at http://www.marty.net/cgi/marty/board/messageboard?board=tutorials&action=display&num=1024401648

2> Sell your other stuff in a cpshop. In which case you want to look at hooks: http://www.marty.net/go2/site/view/marty/149

Would I have 2 seperate check out deals?  Since cafepress has its own checkout, I would probably need another checkout for my other products?  You have been great help.

Glad to be of service.

Yeah, CafePress' checkout won't work for any products other than CP.  For that, you'll have to go through the transaction process for those products.

So I would have to do my own checkout on my site and then do cp on my own and send to the customer?   Do you know of anyone who does scripts or anything like www.clickshirt.com ?  I would like to pay someone to set up a deal like that on one of my sites I am working on.

If you wanted a single checkout, yes.  It's a fair bit of hassle, and I think the margins may be too small to make that worth the effort.

I don't know of anything to help you out further than that.

cheers,
