K-wa, minna-san!

I have the following website.
It's primarily dealing with Asian-themed merchandise. But an important part of it all would be my web hosting business. Can I still sell CDs, DVDs, cosplay items, etc., & still successfully integrate WHMCS with Joomla? Or am I better off keeping each kinf of e-commerce idea separate?

Please advise ASAP. Thanks!!!!

If you are looking for an e commerce solution, this will not work for that. If you are looking to sell licensed products or web hosting, then this could be a solution. If you are looking to sell hundreds or thousands of products then I'd recommend Virtuemart or Magneto.

Yes, unfortunately WHMCS does not offer a shipping module or offer any sort of consideration for tangible products, only software and web related services. Perhaps Matt and the team will consider this sort of add on in the future.

Excluding the shipping module - what about this post re: tangible products - especially if you only had a few?

You should be able to sell tangible products throught WHMCS - the only issue is setting a price for shipping. You could setup a "configurable addon" that would list say Ground - $15, 2-day - $40, overnight - $100 or something like that but require the addon so they have to pay shipping for something. It wouldn't be an ideal solution for large numbers of products, but it may work for a few limited products.

What did you go with? Did you keep the two ideas seperate or did you find a solution where you could combine them? I would be interessted as I am in a similar situation. I am thinking of including hosting packages for sale on my site, but I'm not sure yet if I should or not as I also sell t-shirts. So, what did you end up doing?
