CoreCommerce allows you to add and maintain products, order, and customers smoothly.

CoreCommerce has a good starting price point for both small to large enterprises. They provide a 15-days free trial period, which does not require you to make any commitments. There are five plans for CoreCommerce both with specific benefits and limitations.

There are no transaction fees when signing up for CoreCommerce but should you sign up for cheaper plans you can expect an increase in your expenses for bandwidth overcharges and extra storage space. Each additional 1GB of bandwidth cost $9.00 and $9.00 for every 100MB over your monthly plan. The are no additional fees for changing from one CoreCommerce plan to another, but it is advisable to choose wisely as you might waste a lot of money on cheaper plans.
