Hi everyone, The software my site is on right now is quite outdated and I am looking to switch things over to a new software.
I want to almost completely break ties with my current freelance webmaster other than MAYBE hosting with him. He is family, but I am realizing his pace of accomplishing coding is not going to cut it. I am looking for an almost hassle free shopping cart. I can do small copying and pasting but I want to focus more on running the business than trying to be an amateur webmaster.
I am looking for many features in the cart, something similar to what Volusion offers. Does anyone have any recommendations for which direction I should take? Thanks in advance.

I use a custom cart, I believe many use X-Cart? In regards to a "drop shipping cart" that does not exist. The "drop shipping" is on your end and you would maintain that in your software. The cart is used to accept e-commerce orders and than through your cc processor you process cc transactions. Hope I was able to help a little.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I should have wrote that I am looking for a shopping cart with the most drop-shipping friendly options. Options such as being able to calculate real time shipping rates from multiple warehouses and automatic emails sent to drop-shippers etc.

eCommerce Templates has some drop-shipping features, including the auto-email to the drop-shipper. But I don't think it can do shipping rates from multiple locations (Seen some threads about that in their forum).
