I was looking at shopping carts for our new e-commerce website but determined that a cart was not what we need. Instead I think that a form that the potential customer fills out on our website (a JotForm) would be what is needed if the information that the customer fills in would then automatically or semi-automatically go into specific boxes in a spreadsheet (Excel or Google Spreadsheet). I would then save the spreadsheet as a pdf to be emailed to our supplier for order fulfillment. And I would send a PayPal invoice to the customer for their payment. Once payment is received the order would be processed. Does this sound like a workable solution?
Would I build the JotForm first or the spreadsheet? I would much prefer an Excel spreadsheet but I think I can make a Google Spreadsheet work. Because the spreadsheet that I create would need to be basically a copy of our supplier's order form I would think that I would need to build the spreadsheet first... does that make sense?
Any help you can give would be great as I am just learning this stuff....

Thank you for contacting us.
I think the answer to your questions can be found from this JotForm articles.
When you use JotForm (http://www.jotform.com/faq/) , you can integrate it to spreadsheets or download the results as Excel or PDF report. A lot of integration can be read from this blog post http://www.jotform.com/blog/
I hope this help. Please inform us if you have further question.
