    I haven't used Cubecart, but stay far, far away from OsCommerce. I'd use an OsC fork like Zencart.

    any reasons?
    Osc hasn't had a stable release since 2003. The "new" version has been in alpha for a year and a half.

    The two main Open Source ecommerce platforms are Zencart and Magento

    Osc would have the same format.

    Hi,
    I am using cubecart (free version) for 3 clients and it works well with no problems. The only thing I don't like about it is that when a buyer completes a order they don't get send an invoice although this only applies if you doing manual payment as this won't be the case if you using a payment processor like paypal.

    Here is one site I setup then the client decided they going to close the business Welcome to Antique Junction (Powered by CubeCart) as it wasn't a financial viable venture. I did get paid for the work done.

    I have started playing around with PrestaShop Free Open-Source e-Commerce Software for Web 2.0 which seems to be very nice and free as well. Seems to have a lot of skins and plugins for free

    Take a look at OpenCart before you make a decision. I built a dropship site on it a few months back for someone and it works quite well. Way easier than a lot of other carts. Prestashop is another one that is decent.

    But I agree with cma01 ... stay far, far away from OSCommerce.

      Hi,
      I've worked with different shopping carts and must say that each of them have their advantages and disadvantages. However, I would recommend osCommerce. It is pretty easy to use and set up, but if you need to customize it, it can be really difficult. But for this reason there are many shopping cart solutions, such as Store Manager for osCommerce (made by MagneticOne), which enhancesthe functionality of osCommerce shopping cart.

      CubeCart is very simple in use, but it lacks features and funktionality.
      In my own opinion, all the shopping cart has their pros and cons,everything depends on what products you are going to sell and how big your store will be!
