E-commerce Software Review

We have been working on a couple of e-commerce projects in recent months. Clients have been doing their homework carefully and asked if we provide e-commerce solutions.

Yes we do, and if you intend to set up an online store, this blog will be useful for you.

Currently, some of the leading e-commerce software provider includes X-cart and Oscommerce. Other popular softwares include Litecommerce and Zencart.

Below is a brief comparison of the various softwares:

1) X-cart
- Full fledged solution, feature rich
- Priced at USD199
- Learning curve is steep, but there are free technical support
- Uses Smarty, which many developers are unfamiliar

2) Oscommerce
- Open source free software, easy to use
- Support is readily available, with many forum discussion
- Easy to install, one of the most popular in the market

3) Litecommerce
- USD99, lesser features
- Uses flexi, object oriented and easier to use

Whichever software you intend to use, we are able to customize them to meet your requirements.
