Is there any ecommerce/shoping cart solution I could integrate to my website?
I built a website using html/css/js and would like to include the shopping cart, is there such a thing I could use?
You can use Magento shopping cart. It is free and easy to use and install. You can learn more info about it here:
What’s a good ecommerce solution for my website?
I’m trying to kick off my ecommerce business and am currently stuck with yahoo stores. I don’t like the cookie cutter looks and would like something that I could either integrate with my site (with database support) or at least match the look of my site.
My site is http://pccogs.com
First of all, after looking at that site mate, I’m not sure if I’d buy from there. A black background just isn’t intended for ecommerce websites. Sure, would be nice if you were selling items related to gothic culture.
I’d say, brush up on the design and use PayPal eCommerce Starter Kit which is free and easy to use. It has all the cogs and pistons to make the backend administration easy, provide database support and make one the site editing easy.
You can find this ecommerce starter kit free at:
what is the best ecommerce / shopping cart solution for a small startup shop selling designer apparell?
we are considering volusion, oscommerce, yahoostores, prostores, magento. We want flexibility especially with the ability to make design changes + strong features and easy to manage u/i and backend.
Go with a store that you have complete control over – one that you can install on YOUR domain name, on YOUR hosting.
Of your list, Magento and osCommerce fit the bill. You cannot get more flexible than “open source” (meaning you can change up the code to suit your needs).
Design wise, you are limited only by your skills and imagination. Here are some nice osCommerce sites which might give you a bit of inspiration;
As you are a startup, you will proabby be wanting to keep costs low – so why not install osCommerce, have a play with it. Sure, it looks awful when first installed, but it’s pretty simple to find a template or give it a design of your own (there are a couple of template systems available).
Also, don’t forget that os osCommerce has been going for so long, there are literally thousands of “add ons” available – the same cannot be said of Magento (yet!).
My blog is at http://www.clubosc.com should you want to read a bit more about osCommerce or ask any in-depth questions, and I have a tutorial site at http://www.oscbooks.com
Which is the better open source ecommerce solution? Joomla/virtuemart, Drupal/ubercart, osCommerce?
I want to sell file downloads (software) which I believe rules out magento….
Stay away from osCommerce like the plague – the entire design is tabled and the code is mashed in with the layout. (IDK about the Alpha release, but it’s been in Alpha for 2 years without an RC so it shouldn’t be used in production).
Ubercart is a great choice (especially if you have quickbooks). It’s easy to set up, has a large user base and is built off of (IMHO) the best CMS out there.
I don’t know much about virtuemart but Drupal is my CMS of choice over Joomla any day.
Magento is definitely the frontrunner in the open source ecommerce market, but like you said there is no option for digital products yet. This is in their roadmap though, so you may want to take a look to see when it will be available.
Also, one you might not have heard of: Substruct. It’s built on Ruby on Rails and seems to be very well designed. Being built on an MVC framework really helps with the separation of design and code. Therefore: templating is much easier.
Website hosting + integrated eCommerce solution.?
Hi, im having trouble trying to work this out.
Basically i want an ecommerce solution(shopping cart) AND a forum (and maybe something else) on one website. I can;t find any ecommerce solutions out there that allow both features(or more) in one. How would i go about doing this… any ideas ?
I would simply integrate the best of each kind. I would use the best (according to my needs) forum script and the best shopping cart solution together.
