    shop cart script

    Hi,

    i think to choose a shop cart to do local customize,

    of course,i will disable(many) features and finally install it for my clients to use,

    do you recommend any good open source shop cart script?

    i hope it is stable/fast and bug-less.


    thanx

    osCommerce has been around for a while, seems to be pretty stable by now and used by a ton of sites

    I second that opinion. osCommerce is one that is tested.

    Opencart,
    The reason is: it is easy to extend it.
    Prestashop is also easy to extend but its expensive to buy extensions.

    I am also developing in Presta/opencart and OScommerce and honestly the easiest and most powerfull e-commerce is opencart (in my opinion)

    OsCommerce is a little poor in terms of functionality and in general its not so easy to customize (updating to newer versions is also a little too complicated imho).
    Prestashop is quite flexible and offers many free extensions, not only paid ones.
    OpenCart, as mentioned, and maybe ZenCart are not so bad options also, but I would personally go with Presta.

    osCommerce has not been updated in a long time.

    I would recommend OpenCart. I have used it. It is light and fast.

    I would not recommend WordPress with a plug-in. Why would you use blogging software with an e-commerce add-on? Just use a program that was specifically written for e-commerce.

    Although I would always prefer to use an application, specifically designed to serve an exact purpose, I would have to disagree with you here

    Many people are tricked into thinking that many applications are set to serve an exact purpose, when its a more and more common occurance for those scripts to be improved and polished to increase their flexibility. WordPress is a great example of that - originally advertised as a blog software it has surpassed this target a long time ago. With its countless plugins and constant help from the open source community the script has opened possibilities, which cannot be bypassed. I have seen online shops, business websites, social media projects and many more, where you cannot even recognize the script on the first look.

    Again, I do value and always recommend scripts, premade to serve the purpose of the customer as much as possible, but WordPress is my "soft spot" so I couldn't overlook this comment
