    Quite a few people use it (around 3000 or so if I remember correctly from whoiscart.net). What are you calling a custom whoiscart? Just a template? Hacks? Or what? You can check out my site if you would like, it's running off of whois.cart and has what you could call a small custom job. u2mike.com also uses whois.cart.

    Well it's kind of a mod, a very small mod to be honest. It's just a matter of routing people through the cart a different way. To be honest I saw the way u2mike does his and decided to make mine work the same way.

    It can work with any site design. There is no interal enom account with whois.cart or any other cart that I know for that matter.

    Just want to clear this up so your not confused.

    Whois.Cart has the eNom API built in (front end) but you still need signup with eNom in order to use the built-in feature.

    If you search around on WHT, you will find someone that will give you (free) a "eNom reseller" account. All you will need to do then is to deposit funds into your eNom account.

    As for Whois.Cart, I've used it and it works fine and can even be skinned quite heavily into your site but that requires coding knowledge. If your not into that or don't care if it doesn't look exactly like your site, it works fine right out of the box.

    Yes but the recurring billing more or less sucks for WhoIsCart. You actually can't search for old recuring invoices or what they call it. The problem is that whoiscart use
    "orders" - those are the first orders of a client and invoice is beeeing sent out.
    "recurring invoices" - when an invoice is sent out, but searching amongst them later is of a mystery. Also changing them is impossible.

    Actually I think whoiscart is really nice to integratem but when it comes to being a billing software it sucks. Maybe their next system will be better.

    I would prefer using ClientExec, which is the next step comparing the price level.

    WhoisCart can be very flexible, but does take a little knowledge to setup to get the best out of it. You can however simply install and run it "out of the box" and have a reliable billing system.

    If you want to put in the time to tweaking and are preapred to read through their forums, then you can make it do almost anything you want.

    Most customising can be done by simply modifying the HTML in the default templates, however you can do far more than this if you want to as many cart functions are supplied in a seperate PHP file for user customisation.

    As posted previously it will integrate with your enom account or alternatively you get the option to have a slightly discounted Directi account (not as many domain types, but good for the basic .com's etc...)

    I see the main selling point of WhoisCart as the fact that you can get a very quick response from their support team (often even the author) and feedback / improvements are actually taken on board & implemented.

    I have it billing my hosting, domains, ADSL & Software licenses.

    If I was you, I'd buy whoiscart now (it's only $35). Even if you don't use it.

    The successor to whoiscart is Silverstar and it will do everything you need and more. The key here is that Silverstar will be a lot cheaper if you already own a license for whoiscart
    And since whoiscart is so cheap it's a good risk.

    Silverstar will be released (gazes into crystal ball) By Christmas

    I used to use Whois.Cart() for my company as a billing/payment/setup system in my company's developmental stages.

    As far as customizing it, it's pretty flexible and easy to do, as long as you're fairly confident of your HTML/PHP knowledge.

    We stopped using it and coded our own system since we believed it would be much more beneficial to us if we had our own customized system.

    Additionally, much of Whois.Cart is encrypted in Zend if you didn't know.

    Otherwise, it's worth the 35 dollars, and I'd recommend it.

    Looks like you forgot to upload all the files. Make sure you upload them in binary mode as well since they are Zend encrypted.

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/fireback/public_html/billing/dbconfig.php:24) in /home/fireback/public_html/billing/drivers/session.php on line 34

    ##nothing here##
    <?php

    You would need to install an package called cPanel/WHM HAPI (or something similar) distributed by Whois.Cart().

    You can get this package in your client area on their site (near the bottom).

    You are saying that you're trying to import customers from WHM, but WHM is just the admin part of CPanel. It does not contain any customer data. What was your previous billing script?

    There is no way to import that data other than by hand as far as I know.

    Actually Saeven did make a little import script. I think you have to export a comma delimited file and then use the script on it.
    Not an official script but I htink a number of people have used it successfully.

    Have a look through the whoiscart forums to find it.
