Where did the idea come from?
Back in 1998 I set-up a
site on the internet selling books and charts
for people interested in yachting in the
Mediterranean. Creating the product catalogue was a
bit boring but relatively simple. I found the hard
part was creating the shopping cart to work with my
webpages, that took months of playing around Perl
When I was finished I
suspected that what I had ended up with could be
used by others, so, more out of a whim, I set-up a
little site offering my little cart for free to
others. Within weeks I had hundreds of users.
These days Mal's e-commerce is
built and maintained by a small team of individuals
based in Europe. We've deliberately chosen to stay
small. Being small means we can not only adapt to
change but we understand the needs of other small
businesses, just like us.
