Looking For Shopping Cart Reviews
Posted 30 August 2011 - 10:29 AM
I have a client that was using CubeCart 3 which is deprecated now and I think they should use something more professional. Does anyone have any opinions on what the best one is out there?
Here are the main requirements they are looking for:
No monthly fee or service fee
Can be hosted on their site NOT on shopping cart's site
Can handle FedEx Shipping

One thing that you might not find on their website is that their software uses a lot of resources so it really needs to be on a semi dedicated or dedicated hosting.

Zen Cart is a standalone cart, it has lots of bells and whistles. It can possibly be integrated with WordPress, though, probably not immediately with Drupal (there's no active integration module at the time, but you can read this comment about comparing Drupal's own ecommerce module and Zen Cart).
Magento has it all, but is paid.
Ubercart goes with Drupal and lets you do anything, for free, but has a learning curve of Drupal.

This is a Zen Cart module to export feeds into Amazon. I am relatively sure there are plenty other modules to do whatever you want and yes, you'll probably need to customize something in about 5-10% of the cases.
Quickbooks integration? Easy.
I admit, the latter is a paid variant, but there may be different versions with different pricing. If anything, it might be cheaper, than Magento.
Most probably, it's all about the knowledge of any particular shopping cart that you have that'll predict your choice, since most better carts can do anything, as long as you know how to work with it and can find the right modules/customizations. After all, they are not just fixed carts, they are complete CMSes with modules.
So, I'd start with Drupal, because I'm most familiar with it. A Zen Cart advocate would start with Zen Cart, naturally.

It is fairly inexpensive and handles many gateways.
It also has many shipping options.
The customer support is very good.
Right now it is $169.00 but compared to other commercial carts this is not bad.
The only draw back is they are not quick books friendly but they say it is on the list.
