Hi
My wife is setting up an online Business that will sell downloadable language resources (for learning foreign languages). These will include worksheets, soundfiles, and also animations (that are being done by a separate animator).
I am a 'rusty' Java developer and have said that I would do the IT for her.
We have purchased an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription as she is doing the worksheets in InDesign, and they will be sold as PDF's.
I have mocked up the beginnings of a website with Muse, but was intending to use that for getting the look and feel right, then replicating it in Java and HTML5.
However, today I started looking a Business Catalyst and seeing what it could do, but I am confused about it.
Would I be able to sell downloadable items using the eCommerce features?
Can I set up a mock shop on the free BC site?
How much does the eCommerce upgrade actually cost? Like I said, we are a Creative Cloud subscriber.
There will be some features that I will need to code, perhaps talking to another database, I understand that you can call out from the app to your own webservices etc?
Thanks for any help.

Hi Matt,
BC sounds like a good solution for you from the little bit you shared.
Do you mean javascript or java? Java doesn't run on BC as FYI.
Here are your answers:
Would I be able to sell downloadable items using the eCommerce features?
Yes you can. BC allows you to have media downloads for purchase.
Can I set up a mock shop on the free BC site?
Yes, you can start a free trial site that will allow you build and try out BC. Once you are ready to go live with the site you would pay to upgrade the site to a live site.
How much does the eCommerce upgrade actually cost? Like I said, we are a Creative Cloud subscriber.
The price is $38.88 per month (USA pricing. AU differs - more info here on pricing: US Monthly Pricing | Adobe Business Catalyst ) with Creative Cloud you have five basic sites with BC but to "upgrade" you pay the regular price for BC sites.
There will be some features that I will need to code, perhaps talking to another database, I understand that you can call out from the app to your own webservices etc?
There are APIs that allow you to talk to other services and send information back to BC.
You can find more answers by reading the KB: BC Help & support
On a side note, if you need help getting started with Business Catalyst I would happily offer my services. Send me a PM if you need additional help.
