Practical eCommerce is soon to publish our first annual “Shopping Cart Roundup” guide. The purpose of this PDF guide is to help ecommerce merchants locate the right cart for their businesses. We’ll explain the shopping cart features that we believe are important to look for, as well as the relative merits of licensed carts, hosted carts and open-source carts. We’ll cite common mistakes that merchants make in choosing shopping carts.
We’ll also provide a list of every shopping cart – licensed, hosted and open-source – that we are aware of worldwide. There are hundreds of them, and our list will be, to our knowledge, the most comprehensive.
If you own a cart company or work for a cart company, we want to hear from you to make sure your cart is in our list. We urge all cart owners to fill out the survey today.
