    Building a website for a small company, they currently have a shopping cart system purchased, but it kinda sucks. What are some of the better shopping cart systems I could purchase for their site?

    This topic has come up a number of times here. I recommend hitting up MRoogle to see those discussions.

    Well, the software you choose all depends on the server platform you're host has.

    Recommended for PHP+MySQL (Linux/Unix):
    X-Cart (http://www.x-cart.com)
    OSCommerce (http://www.oscommerce.com)

    Recommended for ASP.NET (Windows IIS):
    AspDotNetStorefront (http://www.aspdotnetstorefront.com)

    There's plenty of others out there but these are just the ones I can recommend because I've had experience with them.

    I just discovered CSCart the other week and had a chance to do some coding work for it.

    I think it is really well structured (code wise).

    The admin side puts CubeCart to shame.

    If I ran a web store, I would use CSCart!

    I use OpenCart to power my store (www.atradeforatrade.com). It uses PHP and MySQL. I think the admin interface is really easy to use, and the code is quite clean. It doesn't have a large following yet, but I think it will in the next few years.

    :D :D :D

    I didn't expect to find such a thread on Mac :apple: forum :)))

    was looking for some iPad/iPhone stuff here and now have to get back to job

    If you are not going to accept credit cards on your site you can skip my entire post.

    Don't forget about PCI-DSS compliance deadline! It was July the 1st for US and Canadian ecommerce merchants and AFAIR it is July the 1st 2012 for other countries. An online merchant who wants customers to enter credit card details on his/her web-site is to use a PA-DSS compliant solution otherwise he/she may be face to bigger fees and fines.

    There are just a few shopping carts and payment middleware solutions that are PA-DSS certified - see https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/vpa/

    Be prepared and don't get yourself in a situation like at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxY7ZjroIYM
