    Should I use Oscommerce or something else?

    I need shopping cart capability. I was told to look at oscommerce.

    I will only have a few items to start with but it should grow fairly quickly.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to accept paypal and then real credit card transactions in the future.

    Thanks for any advice

    OSCommerce is a good choice easy to install and setup and most of the payment modules are built right in..
    Go for it.

    OsCommerce (The Exchange Project) is great. I have been installing it for clients for a while now and its amazing. By far the best free shopping cart out there.

    I agree with everyone above. Just don't forget to put a password on the administration panel location. It does not have a built in security mechanism for securing the admin functions. This should be done with htpasswd

    It's a good system, and i like the fact that people are always creating new modules for it. They also have a support forum where you can get most of your questions answered. There is a section where you can review oscommerce sites and get new ideas.

    Thumbs up

    Wonderful stuff all the way around. Highly configurable, so you can custom tailor to you exact needs.
    Example: A friend of mine just wrote a simple php script for me that imports Inventory and Manfactures from Quick Books Straight into the database, took about 20 seconds to move 2,500 items and 150+ manafactures.

    Dear All,

    Have seen the great capabilities of OSCommerce, but have not tried, coz their installation instructions were rather brief. Does anyone have a link to a more detailed one? Appreciate any help that I can get.

    Take care.

    Best Regards,

    It is only momentum and lack of time that has kept me at XMart since 2002. Although uptime has been great, several application tools have never worked. Specifically –The mandatory site designer is glitchy.
    The “Site Description” for meta tags is inop…blank.
    It is impossible to optimize for search engines.
    Reports tools do not work at all
    “Our Specials” are displayed in double and cannot be removed.

    Toughest of all for me is that customer support is non-existent. Once I received a reply and apology nearly 3 months after the reported issues. A couple of the problems were fixed, then nothing again, ever.

    I am about to make a move and have a party to celebrate.
