    Looking for a shopping cart to sell products individually or by the case

    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a decent open source shopping cart that will let me setup an individual product entity to be sold either individually (i.e. 1 bottle of wine) or in bulk (i.e. buy a case of wine)

    1 case does not equal the same price as 12 bottles! It's generally a little cheaper as the customer is buying in bulk.

    See an example of what I mean here: (Add a Case or Add a Bottle)

    Anyone use any open source carts for something similar?

    Never done it, but logically wouldn't you just create two products (one single bottle and one case) with two different price points?

    That's what I've done in the past.

    I played with your cart a bit.

    After adding the 1st item, the
    subsequent items do not go
    to the cart, they just get added
    to the cart and this makes it very
    confusing as I thought the items
    were not being added.

    And not to sound like a broken record ...

    ...but have you ever tried up selling from
    a single bottle to a full case?

    The progression is a little cleaner that way
    and you can then point out WHY they
    should get a case rather than a single bottle.

    Just a thought ...

    Take a look at Bigcommerce by interspire, if you need a hosted ecommerce solution. It launched recently, and looks very interesting.
