    shopping cart solution needed

    Hi guys,

    I want to start up ecommerce hosting, where i provide a complete solution ready installed.

    I am stuck on how to go about this - the obvious solution would be to look and some existing open source carts and modify them, but i don't know which one, or whether i should code my own cart.

    I originally started out with zen cart, but threw this idea out of the window when i realised that it is probly too complecated for my client base, takes up quite a large footprint on my server and also is relatively difficult to modify through a web based interface.

    My main requirements are for it to be small in size, simple, but most of all, very easy for the client to customize the look and feel to his / her needs ( i am guessing templates are my only option here)..

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hi:

    For the features you request, I guess you need some cart like QuickCart http://qc.dotgeek.org/os/index.php?p=productsQuickCart

    Author description:
    Quick.Cart is a simple to install and use e-commerce solution. It works on flat files system, so you don't even need database.

    This simple platform is recomended for small e-shops. To install and use this script you don't have to know any progrming language. It's recomended to know basics of html language to personalize layout of your shop. You can olso use styles, which we prepared for script. To change shop layout with this styles you sould only copy few files to specified directories.

    * full administration for products, groups of products and couriers
    * full administration for orders
    * content management system for additional subpages, like information about shop, delivery info etc.
    * products and orders print options
    * plugin system, due to which you can expand funcionality of shop
    Regards

    I really like the shoppingcart from www.ecommercetemplates.com. But if it needs to be free Oscommerce is good too. Go for the CRE Loaded version: www.creloaded.com
