Top 10 Free PHP Shopping Carts: Pros and Cons
Jul 25, 2011, 13:00 (2 Talkback[s])
"One of the most popular free shopping carts available,
Virtuemart, is a Joomla component. The community is large and you
can find help on many forums. The user's manual is included in the
installation package. Many shipping and payment modules are already
installed; you just need to enable the ones you need. Tax rates by
country, combined with currency and language settings, can help you
adapt your store to the local market. This shopping cart also
supports reports by date and by individual product, but it doesn't
have the option to create low stock reports.
"Also, you could make use of third-party Virtuemart modules, as
well as Joomla modules. However, this can create problems when bugs
and compatibility issues arise."
