    A client wants to add an ecommerce store to his website. Can anyone recommend a software I can use to integrate with the website?

    try foxy cart, it requires no coding, or any other backend stuff. You can easily integrate it into your css. The catch in all of this is that it's a paid service.
    I have gotten into the habit of not judging other designers/developers work, but this is my Microsoft Meandering time so I'm MEANDERING...

    Oh, almost forgot: spammers are gender-less parasites...

    If your client has a merchant account already ( most do if they accept CC's ), they may have a solution that you can use to integrate into their site.

    Depending on your client, what their needs are, etc... a paid cart is an option. Just know that there are plenty of OPEN SOURCE carts out there, and yes they are free, but along with free comes some issues you should know about.

    1.open source is not the most secure ( since all their code is available to any hacker that wants to study it so they can hack it ).

    2. coding is usually pretty bloated and hard to work with.

    3. Integration on many are easy, but not all of them are.

    If you client need a secure cart that is going to be accepting CC's and you don't know how to build one yourself, then a paid solution that uses SSL might be your most secure option.

    If nothing else, if they get hacked, and your clients customer base gets compromised, you and your client have someone to sue ( look at their TOS, before signing up ), to make sure they don't say ( if your account gets compromised, Oh well tough luck ... or something to that effect )

    Thanks everyone. After meeting today, we decided that building a separate ecommerce site would be best, oppose to adding it to his current website.

    Hi if you are still interested i offer my customers some software called actinic, its a UK market leader and offers a host of methods and options to clients. It can be integrated into any payment gateway and has plugins to link it to accounts packages such as SAGE.
