• eCommerce shopping cart software

  • So you've got a shop, or perhaps a new product range and you want to build a website so you can sell online.

    What you need is some kind of web based eCommerce shopping cart system, the question is which?

    I decided to build a short list of web based eCommerce shopping cart software out there.

    The scenario is this, you have a client who wants an eCommerce solution, they are paying you, but not nearly enough, you’re doing this as more of a favour. You started to develop a solution for them, but felt their feedback wasn’t sufficient which would ultimately lead to missing things out, and it probably wasn’t worth it anyway. What is needed is a base platform to build upon.

    The rules are this, it must be open source, and it must work out of the box.

    Please remember, this is based purely on my options, by all means, take them on board, and form your own options.
