As you can see from my title im a potential buyer of CS Cart. Up to now i had a CandyPress shopping cart ( yeap im ASP guy :)) but the CS cart has make me think.
Current host provider is supporting php and asp so I dont need to change hosts.
What i would like to know from you guys if you’re happy with CS Cart?
Does it have what you want?
I can say that CandyPress cart is great, support is great and new features as well. However i found it hard to work sometimes, as cart is made for US market and i had to do some changes to the code.
Easy thing was template as i needed to change only 1 page for site to suit my needs.
How difficult is to make your own template with CS cart? Lots of pages to be changed?
I personally love CS-Cart, there are a lot of files per template but this allows total customisation, however just to change the simple sections like header / footer can be done very easily.
As my website has hunting gear you must know I cant sell all items through webstore.
So i would really like to see the feature where you can decide that certain items can be seen but you cant purchase it ( like they would run in catalogue mode only).
Is this possible in CS Cart??
Anyway im hoping to get some replies that will made my decision easier.

If you add a product without a price you can choose options which prevent it being added to the cart but still display it in the catalogue. Im not sure if you have it listed with a price and disable add to cart but this shouldnt be that difficult to modify.
Overall, CS-Cart is well worth the money full of very good features but obviously a personal choice epsecially as you are bound to compare it to the cart you currently use which I have never had experience with or tried.
