FREE Shopping Cart Service

I just made a purchase from a store using this service.  Saw the link at the bottom of the page and decided to check it out.

I was looking at that last night.

The premium service is $8 a month.

Mal's is decent, a little bit of a learning curve, like everything else, I guess. I think he did have Google Checkout module with his cart, but last I heard on PSU, he gave it up, too many issues integrating.

back to Mal's shopping cart hehehe

It's got a great reputation with a huge number of sellers.  Bay in the day, when I was first starting up my first website, I gave it a bash.  I never could figger the dern thing out.

So I stepped back, contemplated my navel a while, and then jumped into OSCommerce, lol.

That's another whole story, lol.

But again, Mal's has a great rep, should be worth trying out, and the price is right whether you get the free version OR the paid version.

google checkout discussion moved to it's own thread.  Following quote was part of a post that had both subjects in it (and thus quoted here to preserve the part pertaining to this discussion)

Hmmm. I've heard somewhere on this board that OSCommerce was quite hard to figger out, so if DMH went there instead of Mal's...  :-\

Mal's is a powerful cart system, but as has been pointed out, there's quite a learning curve. If you're not comfortable mucking around in HTML coding, it's probably not the best cart for a beginner.

Well OSCommerce means mucking around in php.

I'm not sure which is worse!

Having done the osCommerce cart and then tried others, I would recommend Zen-Cart to anyone just starting out (or switching from osC). It's much more user friendly than osc.
