Oscommerce Shopping Cart
What is OsComerce?
OsCommerce is a popular free shopping cart with a large community of users that have contributed more than 7000 addons to extend its functionality. Its core functionality is very rich and allows you to manage unlimited products shippable and downloadable with flexible shipping and tax otpions. Customers may view order history and maintain their accounts. Integration into an existing site is easy thanks to the flexible template structure. It allows you to accept payments from Paypal, Authorize.net, iPayment, 2Checkout and more as well as offline payment processing. You may visit the official project website here.
OsCommerce provides friendly online store management, but for a newbie you should still start from the very beginning considering hosting, installation, and basics to store management.
OsCommerce does not have heavy hosting requirements and many hosts could decently service this software at least in the early stages of your store. Few hosting companies, however, provide the quality of service in terms of store speed and reliability that you could get at SiteGround.com and the dedicated support that will walk you through the setup and later management of your shopping cart.
