I am trying to add Order Now buttons on an existing website. I want to have it add the items to a shopping cart. However, because of the nature of the business, I don't want them to pay for the product right away, but rather receive an email with the items they desire. (We would later calculate shipping charges and manufacturing time and then work out payment with them directly if they are still sure they want to buy.) Of the current software that is available through WebHub Hosting, what would be the best software to do this with? I do not want a software that forces me to make a new site that uses their templates, I want to add buttons to my existing site. I would appreciate some input as I'm not familiar with shopping cart technologies at all. Thanks!

Thank you for your question. Since you do not want to use a template based software, it really limits your options.

The best solution would be to custom code this type of button into your site, which may require a developer.

Another option may be to add a contact form to your site, where customers can send you an email with what they are interested in.
