Hey CSS-tricks people, Thanks for looking at my post, I was hoping you could help me find a very simple shopping cart system that I could use for my clients website.
what he needs is a very simple system for selling digital products, that will send them a link to the download after they’ve payed via PayPal. He’s probably going to be selling less than 20 products so I really don’t need a full blown CMS with tons of features that clog up the back-end and make it a headache for him. Foxy-cart comes to mind and it’s pretty nice but it’s too much money for so few products, but I like it’s simplicity.
Also as a designer I want full control of what it looks like.
also I might note that our hosting doesn’t support php5.
Thank you for your reply! That seems a pretty good, I am sort of leaning away from wordpress because my client really isn’t needing the blog part of it, so there’s a lot of unneeded functionality that gets in the way of what he’s trying to do.
Hm…. I’m trying them out, OScommerce’s downloadable section is pretty sketchy. I’m trying zen-cart now. But it seems with all the cart CMS’s I have to hide or throw away a lot of stuff I don’t need, like stock, tax, shipping address, etc…
Yeah you’ve got a point there! I’ve been using wp-commerce at first which is pretty good I just have very little control over the way the products are displayed. I might take more of a look in the plugin’s files but so far I haven’t been able to make much sense of them. Other ones seem to require that you use [tags] and/or don’t support downloadable products.
