Shopping cart software

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here used any cart software? Im currently using prestashop for a client and not entirely happy with it tbh so looking elsewhere. Would like to know what experience other people have had with carts.

 

The main thing for the one I am building is that it has customisable products. So people can choose fabric, colour, size, extras etc.

I've used a few all worked pretty well:

 

Magento

Shopper Press

 

Hmmm not seen shopper press so will have a look at that one. Magento Im looking at presently but its driving me nuts LOL. One of them where you really need to read how to go about things, and Im more of a play and see kinda guy LOL.

Yes, Magento has a big learning curve, but is one of the most powerful ones I've used.

 

Shopper Press runs as a theme/plugin on Wordpress, much easier to setup and use.

If Im not mistaken, Joomla and PHPNuke had certain shopping cart facilities

 

Again unfortunatly just not got the capability I need. This place is very customised products using everything from coupon codes, weight based shipping etc

When I am working on the ecommerce shops that I own, I tend to use a hosted site. Then I do not have to worry about getting the extra work done or even worry about how the scripts will work for me when I am doing any type of updates.

I agree that Magento comes with a bit of a learning curve, but it's one of the most powerful e-commerce platforms that you'll find. I used it to build a simple clothing store with a few dozen items for a client a while back and it was fine. However, the items didn't have any customization options besides the size.

I also used a few WordPress shopping cart plugins to create stores that had just a couple items, but can't remember their names.
