I am new to this forum but have run an ecommerce site for about 12years. I will be soon opening another site with different products. My existing site runs a PHP based cart system I built from scratch. It works but has some rough edges and functionality customized for the specific business.
For the new site I am looking to start over with a different cart, mainly to save time rather than adapting what I already have. What I am looking for in a cart is:
- Open access to source for modification - Paypal, google checkout integration - Multiple shipping options (manual is preferred do not need carrier APIs) - Coupon codes and affiliate codes - Prefer PHP and SQL based, could live with PERL
I have looked into OpenCart but reviews are mixed and I do not like the modules required for almost any feature.
Ideally I would like to find a 'core' of a cart (DB, transaction and payment) which is secure and stable and then add display and backend stuff myself.

I agree with tycoon7 that whichever eCommerce platform you choose for yourself, you will find each one of them with pros and cons. The best way to choose a suitable platform is to chalk out the features you want in your mind. This should help you save a lot of time in the process of finding one of the most suitable one for your website.
The market is full of such apps. I would suggest taking your time and choose a suitable one wisely and without being in any sort of a hurry.
