"I don't like this shopping cart at all. I prefer the CGI shopping cart from Datalogica which is totally free and easy to install. Just copy your website layout in the template file and your shop will have the identical design as the rest of your website."

"This is a good shopping cart, but there are a few things to know. While the shopping cart itself is free, you will need to spend money for hacks - Payment portal (like PayPal) and if you intent to offer software downloads that will cost you. The company will sell you a membership for $49.00 that contains a lot of these things. Out of the box the cart works well, if you want to make changes you will need to know HTML and PHP. If you want to change the appearance of the shopping cart, you will need to do some programming. I am still learning and making changes, but overall this cart works well. "

"This is one of the most exceptional carts I have ever seen, and the support supplied by the author is top notch. But am not really surprized because this is one of the first and original FREE shopping carts on the web. While others have come and gone this one has continued on strong and just gets better with each release. Also if you are a programmer you will be really impressed because the code is also straight forward and extremely well written. A true work of art and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a shopping cart."

Ecommerce Spot Comments This cart comes at free of cost! It provides an excellent support through mailing list and BBS. However, to get all the functionalities, either you have to be a master in Perl or have to buy a lot of hacks.
