This is the catch-all discussion for Which Ecommerce Script Should I Use?
*This is a general, community wiki [catch-all] question to address non-specific "I need a eCommerce script that does x, y, and z..." questions.* I have a list of features that I want for my website's eCommerce script - where can I find a (free) script that includes all of them? : http://meta.webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/761/should-we-provide-a-version-of-the-how-to-choose-hosting-question-for-ecommerce
The [Webmasters FAQ] outlines the nature of acceptable questions for this site: researching available solutions and providing anecdotal advice falls outside the purpose of this StackExchange site, so this type of question would be better-suited to [chat] or another discussion forum. That being said, there are a variety of free and open source ecommerce systems, as well as licensed software and paid services, which may meet your requirements. Some of the most popular ecommerce scripts include: * [Magento] * Pros: -- * Cons: -- * [osCommerce] (php, free and open source) * Pros: -- * Cons: -- All of the ecommerce scripts listed above are built around the concept of mods (plugins) which extend the application's functionality - there are many mods, with new mods authored every day. If you have researched different ecommerce scripts and available mods but cannot find anything that will meet your needs, you should consult a developer (or do it yourself) who can build something to your specifications either as a mod for an existing ecommerce script or as a stand-alone application. : http://chat.stackexchange.com/ : http://www.magentocommerce.com/ : https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/faq : http://www.oscommerce.com/
can this go live as a community wiki, or is there something that I missed (I want to check with everybody before I create a catch-all, just because it means that a lot of questions will be closed)? Keep in mind that you can edit it once it's live.
