To test my MVP I want to put a site up that sells engineering services (calculations) that require certain inputs depending on which calculations the customer wants to have performed.  I'm looking for the quickest way to get this up.  I want the user to create an account and log in before selecting a service to purchase and providing the necessary inputs.  I'd also like to easily export the input fields to CSV or Excel format so calculations can be quickly completed.  Is there something out there like a build to order platform that can handle this?

blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } Magento is an open source e-commerce platform. You might be able to custom-build your solution on there. Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone

Take a look at nopCommerce, too - very configurable and extensible open-source ecommerce engine, built on .Net platform, SQL backend, so data export's fairly straightforward.

Not a huge fan of Wordpress, but WooCommerce is very popular and highly extensible. You can quickly get up and running within 10 minutes, worth looking at for a prototype.
