Or does anyone else have suggestions?
What I need is:
manual CC processing
customizable shipping options
Any advice would be appreciated. I just can't seem to get OSCommerce to do what I need and their forum community has been less than helpful.
The x-cart forum (you got to have a valid license to access it) is very active & helpful.
I haven't dealt w/ LiteCommerce so I can't comment on it.
Once the cart is up & running, it should be fine - I haven't seen the cart just simply break for no unexplainable reason that we'd need an official company support.
Nevertheless, there're other choices, some are easier to set up than X-Cart.
I've installed four carts only, but Jshop Server is my favorite. Previously I had used Zen Cart and Lite Commerce, but JS is rock solid and packed with features. Fairly expensive up front - but no headaches and great support.
Make sure you get the software customized if you can! Overall, x-cart has been a profit hound for us!
So, now I go to my boss and ask for money! That might be the hardest part!
The key feature for me was that it allows me to run the same cart off 3 different domains. i.e. it can function like Mal's or 1shoppingcart in the background. You simply replace the buy it now links.
However, it will probably cost much more in the long run than x-cart. Another problem with litecommerce is that their copyright protection often clashes with scripts on our server. Therefore unless you run a dedicated server, you may soon find yourself with incompatibility problems.
If I were to start off another shop, I would go for x-cart. However, if you have an existing shop that is highly SEOed, then you should consider litecommerce.
