Need Ecommerce Solution for small/medium size store

 5:21 pm on Apr 17, 2007 (gmt 0)

I am familiar with some inexpensive or even free solutions for micro or new ecommerce sites, I am also familiar with solutions for bigger sites with bigger budgets such as MarketLive, GSI, AIG, FRYS, etc...

But I am now looking for a solution for a medium sized site, about 2000 skus.

I am looking for something decent but won't cost the same as a marketlive.

Needs to be SEO friendly and handle coupons.

Thanks so much

Mal's e-commerce, maybe?

My needs are similar. I need to be able to handle 5 times as many SKUs. I need the code base to be .net. We are looking at asp dot net store front(http://www.aspdotnetstorefront.com/). Does any one have an argument against this product or know of a solution in the same price range, but better?

You might take a look at modular merchant

hello all,

For small stores I would recommend litecommerce. It is exactly for such needs.

About .net shopping cart - I suppose that aspnetshoppingcart si the best now. Its competitors look live odd jobs.
But personally I belive that for now PHP shopping carts are far better then .NET.

prosimma, netdev:

we are running that on one of our ecommerce sites.
it is a very good start, but be prepared to put some coding time into it - and not a junior programmer, but rather an advanced or a pro's time. It's got many unfinished ends, and it is really slow out of the box.

I somewhat agree that php/opensource solutions are currently better for a start-up site. But as you grow bigger and need integration with other systems, you'd still have to spend $$$ on both ends. Plus, open-source needs to be patched, less known tools have less chance of being exploited (just by virtue of less people using it so fewer "hackers" are interested).

Take a look at store sprite its a free shopping cart that has coupons and supports major payment processors.

I have Mals-e now, and I'm pretty unhappy with it.

You can't get cc numbers ever, so if you have to recharge, no chance.

You can't get IPN callbacks from PayPal orders.

You can't get good IPN of other orders.

I need something better . . .

joe -

do you have the paid version or the free one?

I think paid handles IPN..

I've used the aspdonetstorefront version and it was extremely powerful and flexible. You might be best off getting a consultant who has already mastered the learning curve involved.

That's actually good advice for any off the shelf program. Hire someone to train you in the use of the program and you'll avoid all the potential pitfalls of trying to figure it out yourself at the expense of the consumer.

Yup, I even pay . . .
