E-shop items and CMS e.g. Inlay

Can someone advise me if e-shop pages/items can be edited in a CMS like Inlay?

For example if the client wants to change the description and price of an item in a E-shop page, is that OK for them to do in Inlay?

When you add a price to an SKU with these Actions, the checksum for the product and its price is calculated within the Action. This keeps someone from adjusting your JavaScript in their browser, and ordering a $100 item for $0.01. When Inlay adjusts your page later, it will not have access to that logic, and it cannot adjust the URL that is needed by Mals E-Commerce to process the order. So while I imagine you could change the description of a product using Inlay (since that’s just HTML, and that’s what Inlay is good at), you would break your commerce links if you also tried to change the prices.

Thanks Walter.
Does anyone know of a E-shop system that will integrate with FW and will allow the client to edit the prices?

You might want to look at Ecwid (which uses the Mals back-end). That lets the client edit the store to a pretty great degree, but I don’t know how it would work with the rest of your design. Basically what it does is inject the entire catalog into your site using a single JavaScript link, so the products and their description are all generated by the Ecwid system. The client would log into Ecwid’s server and make changes there (I think – I haven’t used it, but others on this list have raved about it).

Thanks Walter. Funnily enough, I was looking at ecwid earlier today.

It’s not clear to me how it works though. Not sure if when someone wants to buy an item you jump into a separate site hosted by ecwid or whether the ‘shop’ can be designed in keeping with the rest of the home site, looking seamless to the user.
