Hello there

I have recently been looking for a decent open source shopping cart system, preferably written in PHP/MYSQL. Preferably it will need to be a complete shopping cart system, but one that is easy to template the front end of (for a programmer).

I've had a look at zen cart, and while it looks like a nicely written piece of software, the templating system seemed very rigid and difficult to alter in any meaningful way. The problem is that most sites using these kind of templates tend to look like template driven sites from a design perspective, and I'm wanting to do very specific designs that won't necessarily look like that.

Does anybody here know of any software I could use that would work as a shopping cart system, while still giving me the flexibility to produce my own designs to the front end user?

Hope somebody here can help
