I am looking to use OSCmax as a catalog, however I do not want to use the shopping cart, I just want to connect the "add to cart" button to a external service.

I would replace the add to cart link to something that would pass the part number into another external service provider and use their inventory and cart functions which allows our customers to order the parts from our 6 locations and have them invoiced, etc.

Does anyone see where this would be a problem?

Thanks

I want to do something similar. I would like to use the URL link that produces the 'Visit this website' line to send buyers to my main store or other affiliate programs to buy the product on an external site. In theory, you can do this as is, but it has been my experience that shoppers ignore that link and just add the product to the cart on the current site if the Add to Cart or Buy Now buttons are there or they try to use the Checkout link at the top of the page. There is a contrib to remove the shopping cart in the 2.0 version, but I couldn't find anything similar for 2.5
