I am looking for a php based shopping cart. preferably open source (right now I'm looking at osCommerce and ZenCart), but if there is a commercial app that will fit my needs that is fine too.
I need the following features:
-affiliate program - 2-tier
-email broadcasts (ability to email to custom lists - ie mail all customers who have product A but not product B)
-tracking support (split testing etc track clicks, leads, sales)
-integration with phpBB forum.
-Support for multiple sites/front ends...
Can anyone give me any recomendations for a good cart for this job. I know it is a pretty big list of needs...
If a cart with these tools isn't available, then I want to pick the cart that is the best starting place for addon scripts and custowization....
Best luck for your venture.
Ecommerce works better if it involves reliability.
I just recently discovered it and am considering it rather seriously. I'm a "PHP-guy" myself (big time), but PERL doesn't seem too scary to me.
The cart's features look quite comprehensive if you really dig in and spend an hour or two really looking at everything they offer. Check out he admin demo. The front-end site is totally customizable too, which is a big plus for us. It's apparenly all PERL/MySQL based, but the product has its own proprietary "tag" system that can be used as well.
I read about 50 or so threads in the support forum, and the forum seemed pretty well-run.
P.S. I finally realized that you can download the documentation for the "Heavy Metal" shopping cart product if you create an account on the make-a-store.com site. I haven't even cracked open the docs yet though. Good Luck!
