i'm looking for a good shopping cart, ideally php/mysql. it'll need to handle up to 10,000 products. can php/mysql handle that? the main thing is that the scripts and database can handle the number of products. there will be about ten categories with about 1000 products in each.
it doesn't matter what the credit card payment parts do as we have that under control.
i'm no stranger to e-commerce and shopping carts but have only used ASP/Access/SQL server on windows servers for bigger sites or Perl for smaller sites. it's time to look at the PHP/MySQL combination to see what that can do.
so far i've found phpmyshop and eztrade. any others? it would be helpful if it was also spider friendly! if all else fails i can switch to actinic.
PHP/MySQL is quite a popular combination these days and yep, it works great and lots of e-store scripts made using them.
As for the choice... go to ShoppingCartReviews.com and have a good time.... Personally I stopped at Avactis 'cos I needed easy customization, but it costs money, and if you want Open Source solution then go for ZenCart (its setup is a mess though)
