"Online storefronts are generally fairly expensive, complex software packages, but Zelerate Inc.'s AllCommerce update bucks this trend by providing a simple-to-administer, low-cost storefront that will be a good fit for organizations that can accept the product's limitations."
"The current release of AllCommerce supports only a single database, MySQLAB's MySQL. Oracle and the open-source PostgreSQL databases will be supported in a 1.0.4 update to be released later this month, Zelerate officials said. AllCommerce runs on a variety of Unix platforms (we tested it on Red Hat Software Inc.'s Red Hat Linux 7.0)."
"AllCommerce is licensed under the GNU General Public License and is written in Perl, thus providing the opportunity for extensive customizability. The software itself is free to download; Zelerate provides consulting services to implement AllCommerce stores, with consulting contracts starting at about $80,000. Zelerate is also recruiting partners to offer lower-cost implementations."
