How to choose a shopping cart
Post by belahost on Apr 19, 2007 9:08:30 AM CST

There is a big choice of shopping carts all over the internet and sometimes it's rather difficult to choose the one. In this article we will guide you how to choose a shopping cart. One of the main features of any shopping cart is user-friendly interface for the shoppers. They should not guess how they can add products to the cart and purchase them.

People do not like filling the forms. Your shopping cart should not require the shoppers to be registered. The other important thing is the shoppers should like the design of your shopping cart. It will be a big plus if the shopping cart is based on templates. If you follow the simple rules above you can increase your sales.

Free shopping carts - Some people like free shopping carts others don't. Some developers of free shopping carts pay less attention to the security. As a result a free shopping cart can have security problems.

The most popular free shopping carts are:

osCommerce -
Zen Cart -

Those shopping carts are rather powerful but from the other hand sometimes it's difficult to set them up.

Commercial shopping carts - They are more professional as a rule. The developers are more interested in developing them. One of the commercial shopping carts is 1st ProCommerce ( You can sell digital downloads and merchandise using this shopping cart.

More expensive commercial shopping carts are Cart32 ( and ProStores (

P.S. This is my own opinion. If you have anything to add you can reply to this post.

For me, I prefer Fastcommerce ecommerce platform. For small business or home based business, take a close look at great templates, search engine visible, low cost.

Small business owners need a professional e-commerce alternative. is a low-cost, high powered e-commerce platform that is free for the first fifty products, and 29.95 for 2,000 products.

Beautiful templates, great back office tools, no set up costs, and no contract.

The Small Business e-Commerce Alternative: Fastcommerce

First of choose the shopping cart to be the open source.Then check for its licensed and it supports all the features you need.Choose the shopping cart about the new features can be upgraded etc & choose the best shopping cart which is highly reliable and costs less. I am using Zeuscart which supports the above.

As you know, "there is no shortcut to making money on the internet". Also this website does not help you to make money, not does it show you "how to make money". All this website does is provides you with "knowledge" on how to build and promote your web site or internet business in general.
