Finding the best ASP shopping cart program

Mission impossible?

I'm looking the best ASP shopping cart program.

I think I've already found the best PHP cart (Digishop) and would like to find an ASP version with the same features. Maybe it doesn't exist.

-One time fee
-Installed on my server
-Multiple coupon codes with expiration dates
-Online gift certificates
-Graphics can be customized
-Compatible with PayPal Pro, Authorize.net, etc.
-Phone support from people in the United States (I might be dreaming.)

Digishop has all these features and more, but it's PHP and I'd like ASP. Let me know if you have any recommendations.

Thanks, Gary

Some well-known ASP carts are VB-ASP, Comersus Cart and CandyPress.

I have used CandyPress and am reasonably happy with it, especially for the price. There are several developers that have created "mods" to add functionality not found in the original package, and if you know ASP it's pretty easy to create your own.

Another one to check out is ProductCart by EarlyImpact.

A good ASP.NET cart is AspDotNetStorefront. It has the features you listed.

I use productcart, has what you want but phone support. trouble ticket support is pretty good. The user forum is just getting started, but give it a try. They maybe an up and comer, and new version is anticipated in june. They have been updating regularly

We use VP-ASP. It has all the functions we need, it's well priced, and their tech support (although in Australia) is very prompt and helpful.

Wow! VP-ASP is loaded. I've never seen so many features in one program. I wonder if I can use it for multiple sites or if it's licensed for just one? I'll investigate further.

Thanks, Gary

Do a search on VP-ASP

The second listing on a sql injection vulnerability from 3 weeks ago - hardly a promising start.

We use a custom built one actually that our provider built. We could not find anything that really suited our needs. It is a bit difficult to build something and then please everyone.

We actually used VP-ASP first but stopped because of too many errors. They still send us emails and we got the one about the SQL injection. I did not know what that meant but I knew that it was very bad

I completely agree that it's hard to find an off-the-shelf shopping cart program that will exactly fit your needs. I've been using Charon Cart and Web Assist for years because they are easy to modify. But now I need more advanced features that they don't have and would be too difficult for me to create. For example, managing coupon codes, selling online gift certificates, and tracking affiliates.
