    I'm trying to help my buddy get the info he needs to get an ecommerce site up and running. He's not a very technical user, so he doesn't really know anything about how to do it himself.

    The way his site will work is like this:
    His business contacts dump their inventory listings on the site
    People can browse and purchase from these items
    When someone places an order, the order goes to the business who listed that item, but the payment goes through my friend.

    What kind of software can manage this?
    And also, he will probably need someone to design this site for him, because like I said, he's not really capable of it himself. Anyone have any good suggestions for that?

    What level of business experience or background does your friend have?

    Will the site sell products from existing dropshippers or from traditional businesses that are looking for a way to get online?

    Will the site compete with eBay? Perhaps your friend can make a business without building a site. He could help his business contacts sell their inventory by listing the products on eBay and managing the sales from there.

    Please tell us a little more and we will be able to give you more specific help.
