Best Free Ecommerce Solutions On The Market

When it comes to open source ecommerce platforms, there are plenty to choose from. Here, we take a close look at the best available, which should help guide you in the right direction.

 Magento

You’ve only got to look at Magento’s client list to realise what an excellent piece of open-source software it is. Samsung, The North Face, Stussy and Nespresso all use it to power their online stores. It’s used by 30,000 merchants and is the world’s fastest growing ecommerce platform. You have to pay for the Enterprise Edition, which is packed full of extremely useful features, but the Community Edition, meant for developers only, is free to download and use.



1



Store Sprite

Despite being completely free, StoreSprite offers many features that you’d expect to find only on paid-for and more popular platforms. These include loyalty points, customer ratings and reviews, status notifications, order tracking, special offers, best sellers and shopper accounts. The main drawback of the platform is that your store will come with visible StoreSprite copyright notices, unless you pay to have them removed.



2



RokQuickCart

RokQuickCart is a very, very simple cart for Joomla! Its simplicity, however, is both a help and a hindrance as although it can be set up in minutes, it lacks some features which you’ll find in other platforms in this list, for example, it only accepts payments through PayPal and Google Checkout. Having said that, it generally looks good and product image display is impressive.



3



CubeCart

ubeCart is great. It integrates really well into all kinds of sites and looks very professional from the customers’ point of view. CubeCart 3 is free and CubeCart 4, the premium platform, costs £110.



4



SimpleCart Js

SimpleCart(js) 2.0 is no longer only for Paypal. It now works with Google Checkout as well. You can now add increment, decrement, and remove buttons to your cart. You can also rearrange items, change the HTML tags, do whatever you like to display your cart how you want. No databases, no programming, no headaches. A simple javascript shopping cart in under 20kb that you can setup in minutes. It’s lightweight, fast, simple to use, and completely customizable. All you need to know is basic HTML.



5



Zen Cart

Easy to install, easy to customise and easy to manage, Zen Cart is perfect for those who want a straightforward ecommerce platform without the fuss. It comes with a newsletter manager, discount coupons, gift certificates and all the basic features you’d expect. Users can make the most of the numerous add-ons available to customise their store and make their admin experience a little easier.



6



Afcommerce

If you want to keep your ecommerce platform really, really simple, then Afcommerce could be the option for you. It’s not particularly good looking, neither on the customer nor the user side, but it works right out of the box and is ideal for beginners. It has a speedy one-page checkout, customer help pop-up windows and customer accounts are generated automatically from orders.



7



osCommerce

osCommerce is absolutely free under the GNU General Public License and caters very well to most people’s needs. Unsurprisingly, considering how easy it is to set up and run, it’s extremely popular, powering over 228,700 online stores.



8



OpenCart

Not only does OpenCart look great, it’s extremely scalable. You can create an unlimited number of categories, sell an unlimited number of products, accept multiple currencies, use multiple languages, and choose from over 20 payment and 8 shipping methods. It’s user-friendly and search-engine-friendly too, so will help your prominence in Google. Customers can even review and rate the items you sell.



9



Spree Commerce

Spree is an open-source ecommerce platform for Ruby on Rails. Using Spree’s extension system, you’ll be able to customise your store and mark yourself out from your competitors. Useful features include support for over 50 payment gateways, single page checkout and custom tax logic, which can save merchants lots of time and effort. It also comes with Google Analytics built in.



10



PrestaShop

PrestaShop is another robust, professional-grade e-Commerce solution that you can download, install, and use for free. On the back end, you’ll use a full-featured back-office application to manage your online business (including inventory, orders, shipping, and customers) in real-time. Your customer’s payments are sent directly to your commerical bank account using the latest security technology.



11



VirtueMart

VirtueMart, which has been designed to work alongside Joomla!, is a really neat cart which customers feel instantly comfortable with. Not only does it let customers buy things, it lets them create an account, add addresses and access their order history. Multiple languages and currencies, and unlimited products and categories are supported. 2.5 million people have downloaded VirtueMart so far and the vast majority is happy with the results.



12



Ubercart

Ubercart is specifically designed for people selling things like file downloads, event registrations, website access passes and event tickets, rather than physical products.



13



ZeusCart

The best thing about Zeuscart is its user interface, which is rich, attractive, user-friendly and generally less boring than most of the open-source UIs that I have to look at on a daily basis. Designed with small and medium businesses in mind, users can make the most of SEO friendly URLs, gift cards, discounts, email templates and tier-pricing, which makes it possible to decrease prices for bulk orders.



14

20



FoxyCart

FoxyCart is a unique e-commerce product – unlike the rest, it does not claim to be the one-stop solution to all your e-commerce woes. It is not a CMS in its own right, and does not come with specialized tools for analytics or inventory. Instead, FoxyCart simply integrates itself seamlessly within your existing design and functionality.



21



SolidShops

SolidShops is a flexible e-commerce solution that comes loaded with web hosting as well. It offers you features such as daily backups, custom tax settings, Facebook stores and stock trackings. Plus, SolidShops also has native support for SEO.

  6. unbleevable39 says:

    OK, so, I have to choose either google checkout or paypal for my website. Which one is better? I just need to accept credit cards online.

  7. mr flibble says:

    It’s been almost 24 hours since I bought something via Google Checkout (Google Wallet now though I think). When I contacted the seller, they said although they have a record of me purchasing the product, they have not received any money to their account and so cannot ship their order. They told me to contact Google to speed up the ‘verification process’, I can only send an e-mail since I am not in the US.
    Two questions: 1) How long will it typically take for Google Checkout to process the money (I’m just annoyed cos as soon as I bought the product the money was instantaneously taken out of my account) .
    2) Approximately how long will it take Google to reply to my e-mail?

    Thanks for any answers by the way!

  19. nyyankees1123 says:

    I’m finally making the step to learning about servers, and am going to spend some $$ to build my own. I know there are Linux, Mac OS X, and of course the Windows 2008 Server type deal.

    I’m gonna spend a little $$ and put one together, and I would like to know what would be the best type to go with? Also, I would like the server to be a good investment for me, and if any guru out there can advise me on what I can do with it to make a nice little income stream, that would be great. I know it needs to be on all the time, so I guess i need to make $$ off it to justify an increased energy bill.

    Lastly, if I were two learn two, which would I be safe learning? I know most businesses have the Windows servers. Thanks a million fellow technology gurus!

    Okay, so my family’s started up their own endeavor, and I have been tasked with creating a website for the business. I do have experience with HTML coding, as well as the frequent use of Blogspot and Tumblr. I’m thinking of starting up a WordPress, as that may easily accomplish what I am looking for. However, one aspect of the website needs to be a functional store. I’m assuming I’ll have to set up a Paypal account and the like, but how exactly would I go about doing that? Is there any template or website design program that I could use to create a professional looking website with the added functionality of a user cart and item check out?

    Thanks.

    I’m looking to compare prices with online store plans on webhosting.
    It needs to be fairly easy to use with a shopping cart feature and lots of merchandise space.
    I won’t have a very big budget to start out with, so I’m also looking for something on the cheap side.
    What are the best webhosting sites with plans that fit this description?

  31. Nathan B says:

    hi all , i am a programmer , and i am programming a new system (sales and inventory) using c# and MySql , i am almost done working on it , since i am living in jordan , it’s hard to sell such stuff especially if you are a stand alone programmer , i just want to ask you guys what is the best way to sell my product online and get paid through paypal , western union or such things , by the way eBay is not supported in my country . thanks

  33. Xedo says:

    Hi All, I am creating a website which will involve customers, let’s say, purchase widgets to be sent by post or posted online to my website. Once the customer has confirmed the payment amount on my site, they should be directed to an online third party payment website to undertake the payment process. The customer will then complete the payment within the third party payment website. What I am looking for is a third party payment management system (like Paypal) for instance, which, at the end of the customer payment process, automatically notifies me when the customer has made payment and can integrate with my system to let me know this – in a secure, timely and reliable manner. Once this payment acknowledgement is all done, my system will then automatically send/post the widgets online. My questions are:
    1 – Apart from the Paypal ‘Instant Payment Notification’ process – are there any other payment notification processes you know of provided by other online payment management companies that can do this? (Any links to their sites would be most appreciated)
    2 – If you use Paypal’s IPN process, have you come across any problems with this or do you strongly recommend it??

  34. Krazy Bob says:

    Hi, can you please tell me the best ecommerce cart that has everything to build a databse driven store? Or can you tell me if its better to BUY a cart and customize it or to use a free one? Thanks

  35. Blake says:

    Does anyone know a website where i could create a free website with my own web address name like (www.something.com) Not freewebs.com becuse they do not let you personalize your web address for free!

  36. balinderk2000 says:

    I’ve done some serious digging for a good hosting site for some time. godaddy.com has been my top choice simply because it is most recommended, and it best fit the needs of what I want to do? Would bluehost be any good for my needs or should I stick with godaddy. I’ve calculated that I would have to pay $150 up front, plus $65 monthly with godaddy, compared to $6.95 plus a merchant account w/ bluehost. I’m simply trying to figure out what’s the catch with bluehost.

    Details
    E-commerce site
    Ability to display a few hundred products
    Easy to build and maintain
    Merchant account
    SSL
    Reliable… to name a few

  38. Dom L says:

    I am a fan of online payment systems like moneybookers, 2co, paypal (painful fan) etc.
    I have started a business where my customers ignore completely internet, but are willing to give credit card data via phone (the old school method)
    does it exists yet? its more expensive than online payment gateways? do I need a bank? what could be a good start if i sell under 5.000 USD / month

    Thanks a lot, a lot

  39. Franklin Bluth says:

    I know they have a “getting started” page but it sucks and all i get are more questions from it. I have Ubuntu and Firefox. so far ive installed “Bluefish” (html editor) FTP from firefox. I think this will work okay right ? maybe i could just use a website builder just to get the site up quickly. if i use templates would I have complete SEO control ? My only exp. is using a free website builder from brinkster and i need to figure the best possible way i can create a interactive site with a “Build your own” cowboy rhinestone shirts. so there would be a top a bottom, the “cut” which joins them and special extras like flashy embellishments, rhinestone designs etc..the person can choose from different fabrics and then see what it will look like all together. Would i be best to use flash for this ? where should i get something like that ? how advanced is it to do a site with this capability ? how should i do it ? Flash ? javascript ? What about Joomla ? could this help me in any real way ?

  51. tefa_96 says:

    I have a VERY basic level of understanding when it comes to website authoring, and i have a few pages set up already in dreamcaster as a guide. however, i am finding it hard to get my head around the whole shopping cart thing.

    I sell customised clothes for boutiques and do some stuff on ebay and want a place to;

    a. show my portfolio to shop owners rather than sending them a million and one links
    b. to make a few sales to real life customers who don’t use ebay.

    i already have a domain name and basic hosting from one.com. i basically just want to know the simplest way to integrate a shopping cart for customers to use paypal.

    I am trying to stay away from estores, but would they be easier?

    Thanks for all your answers!
    I use paypal already, and have had problems with them doing chargebacks and doing unathorised direct debits. However, i have a new account and it’s the easiest method of online payment. I dont mind not using it, but really want to sort out the cart feature without having to do every page from scratch.

  52. evangldbrg says:

    Also, what what does paypal charge for each of those accounts if I were to sell something on eBay?

  53. Cole says:

    Like, a store that I can sell my e-books, song files, software, etc. Thanks.

  54. Benihana says:

  59. Maggie says:

    I want to start an online store for like buying and selling cars or sports goods i dont know what market to go towards yet but I was asking how do I do that?

  60. shahrukh says:

    My paypal account was limited due to Pan problem,but now it is functional.I have been receiving monthly payments from a website but now my paypal balance is zero.How can I trace my unclaimed money?

  61. Muzahid says:

    How can I change the PayPal account linked to my ebay sellers account? My buyer has submitted payment, but it went to an e-mail address that is not linked to any paypal account. I do have a paypal account, but don’t know how to verify my Ebay sellers account is linked to it.

  62. Hotshot t says:

    Didn’t even know that Paypal takes anything. I know Ebay takes about 10 percent, and if Paypal takes a ridiculous amount then I’m about to cancel my sale because this is just a rip off. I know that both companies, more so Ebay is helping you sell something but Paypal should not get a large percent since there not the one’s hosting the sale but ebay is. I’m expecting Paypal to be something small maybe 2 or 3 percent at most.
    Thanks for that, still kind of pissy about it because that means 13 percent of my sale on my item is going to these companies. Kind of sickening, but I have no choice because listing on Craigslist is a hassle and I probably will make more money on Ebay in the end. Oh well, I just have to tough it up and realize that they are a business and they’re in it to make money too.

    I am looking at buying a car however, the seller claims to be in the military and leaving for deployment. He says the car is currently boxed at his old military base in Washington and that he wants to process the sell through Google Checkout to insure that both parties are 100% protected. He states that “You will make the payment to Google Checkout and they will hold the money until you receive the car. Only After you receive the car and inspect it (for 5 days) Google Checkout will release the payment to me, this way we are both protected.” Is this correct?

    Do you think its a scam I just recently bought something and now I’m starting to wonder about it.

    how does google checkout work!

  67. Krazy Bob says:

    More specifically:

    – Can I create a classic, ‘normal’ website and then somehow modify it to turn it completely or partially into an e-shop?
    – Does the creation of an e-shop require the use of a particular program, or can I use just any website-making software, e.g Joomla! ?
    – Are the so-called “hosted” e-shops safe, trustworthy, and professional? Subsequently, will I, as the owner of the e-shop, have complete control over every aspect of it, or will the hosting website restrict something?
    – Based on the answer to the question above, if possible, I would like some suggestions regarding a few “hosts” and/or a few programs with which I can create the e-shop.

    I also take it that you can use the same program/host to create your e-shop regardless of what it is you’re selling. I mean, I consider given the fact that there are no specialized hosts/programs for different types of merchandise.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    A lady on Craigslist is selling a car and I have been emailing her. She said she is going to Afghanistan because she is in the army and needs to have it sold by Sept. 17th. But she is using the google checkout protection program, (I’m not sure what that it) and that she will have the car sent to me and she will take care of all shipping and have me testdrive it for 5 days… And if I like it I will pay for it after the five days by using the google program.

    I bought 5 DVDs from an online store called ”customdvdcreations,” and paid through Google Checkout.
    I did so on the 27th of December. And my order hasn’t arrived yet.
    It was definitely Google Checkout I used. But should I be worried it was a scam?
    Or maybe some delay occcured with Christmas and the New-Year?

    I have only $100 & i want to create a website that allows people to sell their products online like ebay.com & amazon.com

    I know that amazon.com & ebay.com are large sites that maybe costs billions, but is it possible to get domain name, host service & tools like theirs under $100 if i have the knowledge ?

    What i’m asking is , is it possible under $100 to start, what i must learn?

    Suppose you are in the business of shopping for clients. You buy and they reimburse you upon delivery.

    Obviously, when a client wants something that is both non-refundable and rather expensive, you’d want your client to pre-pay. Firstly, because you don’t have enough cash flow to pay for it yourself and second, because you can’t refund it if you client changes their mind.

    In that case, how can you get your customer to pre-pay? I can’t figure out a solution.

    The only thing I can think of is driving to their homes, getting them to pay and then go shopping, then deliver. But that involves an extra trip, extra expenses and seems illogical. Another way would be to set up a website but how would that website even look? And what about the elderly who aren’t computer savvy but still want to use my services?

    I guess they can also call-in with their credit card information? But what use would that do for me? I can’t use credit money to shop and I’d need them to enter their pin.

    Anyone see an easy solution?

    THank you!

  73. Jason says:

    Im abt to send money to google checkout for them to hold the fund til I receive the car im paying for .
    The car has a very good price. Too good to be true
    I received an invoice number from google telling me to send the money to them via western union.
    But it looks fishi to me and when I look for google checkout its a total different things. Its a phone app to shop online.

  74. Scott Bull says:

    I have a question regarding payments with google checkout, now do I have to pay using a credit card or can I use my bank account to pay with google checkout and use my credit card as a backup funding like paypal?

    What’s a better option for a new online merchant, Google Checkout, Paypal or another service?

  77. rndmaktn says:

    this is exactly the mail i got from the seller
    I would like to call you,i am at sea at the moment as i am a marine engineer and due to the nature of my work, phone calls are restricted.Because of my job I can’t meet anyone to show the car. I had pre-arranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence is not necessary , the car is in their possession ready to be delivered. Google Checkout will handle this transaction for me. The car is insured in case of damage and it takes 7 days to be delivered at your door. It will come with all the necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual,insurance etc). You will receive all the original documents and keys with the car. I signed all the paperwork and the clear title is ready to be transferred to the new owner.

    Please get back to me with your full name, full address and phone number so i can forward your details to Google Checkout in order for you to receive the invoice regarding the terms and conditions of this transaction.

    I WAS ON CRAIGLIST AND SAW AN ADD FOR A MAZDA 6 2004 FOR 2450…
    I CONTACT THE PERSON AND HE REPLIED TO ME

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in buying my car. Let me tell you a few words about the car.It’s a
    2004 Mazda 6, in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings,
    special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING).
    It has a clear title ready to be signed and notarized on your name. The price is not negotiable, $2,450.00 is
    my last price. I sell the car at this price because I cannot use it due to my job (I work as a engineer on a
    oil rig). I’m asking $2,450.00 this price includes door to door shipping, handling and insurance fees.

    You have some details about my car here:

    Mileage: 112,488
    Engine: 3.0L V6 Cylinder
    Transmission: Manual
    VIN: 1YVFP84D445N62164

    Get back to me if you’re interested in buying it.
    THEN I SAID OK IM INTERESTED
    AND HE WRITES ME BACK;
    Hello again,
    I would like to know from the beginning if you are really interested in buying my car, because i had some bad experiences in my past attempts in selling it. So i hope for a straight response from you in order to decide whether i stop negotiating with other prospects. So i can enlarge my perspectives, i listed it on numerous states. It’s not hard to imagine that i don’t have much free time, I told you before i am in a oil rig in Venezuela right now and because of that i chose to handle the sell online through Google. I decided to use their services as i have a $10,000 insurance with them which covers all costs for both parties.
    Therefore, if you are committed in making the deal, we will be working in a number of steps:

    1. You have to send me your full name and address so i can forward it to Google.

    2. As soon as the transaction gets started, you will receive an invoice from Google in your email along with the instructions that you have to follow in order to complete the payment. You will pay the funds to Google and they will hold them and transfer the funds on my behalf only if you decide to keep the car.

    3. Right after i receive the confirmation from Google that you completed the payment, i will start the shipping process. The car will arrive at your shipping address in 2 to 3 days, depending on traffic. Inside the car you will get the title which is clear, the maintenance records, two sets of keys, together with a car affidavit. That affidavit is a document that you will have to get it notarized at the bank. Also you will have to put your decision there and whether it will be an ” Yes. i keep the car” or ” No, i want to return the car”, Google will either advance the funds to me or give you a refund and have the car shipped back to me at my expense.

    I’ll grant you a 10 days inspection period (to test drive it) from the moment you receive it, before Google escrow releases your money to me. The car is located in their warehouse in Los Angeles, CA (ready for delivery). Hopefully, I made myself understood and we will be closing the deal. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Thank you
