It will probably be written in perl.
The server I use is Unix.
I have a couple thousand items to list, almost all of which are used.
Must be able to display some jpg's, adjacent to the matching listing.
Usually need to get the lines for each item down to at least 2; in
other words, I don't want one of those that can only show
a few items per page.
It must be relational to the data base/inventory on the server,
so as to maintain the inventory number. That is, subtract 1
from the total available, and if it is the last one, display a zero.
Must be able to send all the necessary info for credit cards,
from its secure site, and email it to me.
I want to absolutely have an unencumbered license, all my own.
I don't want to be tied down to some other web site or business.
I don't want to spend much time getting it to work for me.
If I wanted to learn Perl/CGI, I would have already done that.

This isn't really on-topic for this group. <http://jobs.perl.org would be a
better choice. Having said that, I do have a couple of suggestions for the
job listing you post there.

It definitely will be if you post to a Perl group or list. :-)

It would be useful to know if it's a shared server or not. If the box is
your own, and you have free reign to install whatever modules and/or other
software you see fit, that would simplify a number of things. Most things
are still *possible* on a shared server, of course - it's just that having
full unrestricted access makes them easier.

It *is* critical that you use SSL security to secure the connection between
the browser and web server - but that's just the beginning. The rest of the
process must be secure too, and that means encrypting the emails that are
sent to you, using PGP or something else. It also means securing sensitive
data not only in transit, but also while it's on the server - one of those
things I mentioned above that is easier to do if you own the server.

At the very minimum, you're probably going to have to establish a merchant
account to handle credit card transactions. There's really no way around
that, short of starting your own bank.
