i am blogger and i am blogging from past 1 year , i have knowledge of html /css ,,now i want to start my own ecommerce business…i have shortlisted these shopping cart softwares …please help me choose:–
1) Zen Cart
2) OS commerce
@StephBertha how is the support/community for Lemonstand? I’ve got a couple of shops sitting on CS Cart software, and we’re looking at migrating one away based on some stuff that is just really difficult to do in CS – but I’m noticing the features are baked right into Lemonstand. It would be nice to get help from an English speaking country as the biggest bonus :)
I was in the same position last year and played around with all three. I found Zen Cart terribly slow. I’m not sure what issues I had with OS Commerce. Prestashop is the easiest to use out of the gate but if you want to play around with the styling of a template it’s a major pain in the arse and adding products to your database takes ages. The community support is also terrible, you may go days without a response and no one has bothered to put together a comprehensive faq explaining how to change elements. I would suggest finding a template, there are dozens of stylish, commercial looking free templates, that has a design similar to what you’re looking for and make minor changes to it. Don’t get into the trap I did in playing around the with the css and template code.
