Hello Snorocket,

addons are easy to code compared to other carts


When do you give us an easy step by step manual, to make addons?

Want to move my site from osc to either interspire or cs-cart. After reading features from both, some questions:

What CS has and Interspire doesn't ---- multi-language, Gift Card and RMA(easy for me to give buyer's credit).

It seems CS doesn't have:
--- Shipping Estimate ---- buyers know shipping fee before register/log in.
--- Guest Log in (no registration needed)

am I right?

And right now I use Paymentech(canada) for credit card...is it easy for me to configure it in CS?

Thank you,

Just read features, it seems that CS doesn't have gust log in and Shipping Estimate(show shipping fee before register/log in).

These are what Interspire has. However Interspire doesn't have multi-language and gift card as CS does....

Am I right? I'll move my site from osc to either Interspire or CS....Thank you!

Play with CS-Cart demo:

http://demo.cs-cart.com/

You will discover CS-Cart have "Estimate shipping cost":

Put something in your cart, click on "View cart", click on "Estimate shipping cost" link:

http://demo.cs-cart....h=checkout.cart

*****

Of course yes, CS-Cart have a "Checkout as guest".

Put something in your cart, and click on "Checkout". Click on "Checkout as guest" button.

http://demo.cs-cart....h=checkout.cart

*****

I don't know if Paymentech if ready to go with CS-Cart. However, you can check this page:

https://www.cs-cart....nt-systems.html

You can read this page too:

https://www.cs-cart....t-gateways.html

You can easily integrate CS-Cart with some additional payment provider as Paymentech:

Thank you for the reply. I just realized this morning at work when I visit demo sites. But I often have problem viewing deom sites, Sometimes it works fine but some times page not found, or it says:

registry:cache_exception

I deleted cache and it did not work. There must be something wrong with my pc?

It seems CS has nearly everything Interspire has.....The new "buy one get one free"promotion functions from Interspire ----I'm not sure if CS has.

I'll go ahead to buy CS, but moving a site made in OSC to CS....hopefully customer service may give some help?

Hello,

registry:cache_exception

I deleted cache and it did not work. There must be something wrong with my pc?


No, your PC is OK. It seems to me, some troubles with webhosting company...

It seems CS has nearly everything Interspire has.....The new "buy one get one free"promotion functions from Interspire ----I'm not sure if CS has.


Of course yes! CS-Cart is very powerful with promotions.

Take a look in 4MB PDF CS-Cart User Manual:

https://www.cs-cart....umentation.html

Go to page #113. Here is the beginning of this chapter :

5.3.6 Promotions

Promotions is one more promotion tool which allows to offer various privileges for your customers. On the page you define certain conditions and if customers meet them they get special reward which is also defined by you.

Promotions can be of two types: Cart promotions and Catalog promotions. Cart promotions are different product discounts, while Catalog promotions allow to define not only discounts on products and orders, but also grant memberships, coupons, free shipping and free products.


I'll go ahead to buy CS, but moving a site made in OSC to CS....hopefully customer service may give some help?


Customer service can help you. Maybe the help forum too ;)

this cart is one of the biggest ripoffs in e-commerce history, not only did they knonck off all the features from CS2 (good job for making a public beta CS, you asked to be ripped off) they ripped off the addon club, made a cheap pathetic wanna be product tabs mod, their KB is $495....LOL, after the ridiculous price check out the ridiculous upgrade policy:

How Much Will the Upgrade Cost?

As per our upgrade policy, upgrading to Interspire Shopping Cart 5.0 is free for existing customers if you've purchased within the last 60 days. If not, you will be able to upgrade for 50% of the retail price for the edition you've purchased.

We will of course notify all existing customers when 5.0 is officially released.

That's a $150 upgrade...LOL...and if you have the KB add another $250...LOL, no thanks, you can buy 3+ CS2 license's for that price folks, and if you've made a donation to club addon for the club's KB you can install that on unlimited domains FREE, sounds like CS is the way to go...


I know, every software has bugs, but for this price a little bit to much.

WHAT YOU THINK????

I have a few stores on Interspire. In fact I have a few stores on all types of platforms. I keep switching because each one has a weakness somewhere. I think that for $300 its a pretty good platform. I would like to try CS Cart on my next store though.

With that said, the biggest weaknesses of Interspire are:

Product variations: If you have products with many colors, sizes, accessories, etc... do not go with interspire. Their engine is very inefficient and cannot do many product variations.

Bugs and Upgrades: Every month they release an update, if you customized your templates it will take you hours and hours to complete an update. I frankly just never updated anymore. I rather spend those hours working on SEO, marketing, etc...

Coupons: The coupon codes don't work. Don't even count it as a feature. If you give someone a $10 off coupon and they order 10 products, they will get $100 off.

Hello. I am currently browsing the market for a new cart and liked ISC.. after hours of research i'm reconsidering.. We use A LOT of variations and you mentioned that ISC is not good. What do you suggest? What's the best in your opinion based on all of the carts that you've used? Thank you in advance!

I have tried:

CS-Cart (php - since 1.3.5 to 2.x)
Magento (php)
Interspire (php)
ProductCart (ASP)
X-Cart (php)
Gold Cart (php)
Oscommerce (php)
Virtuemart (php w/joomla)
Uebercart (php w/ drupal)

My top 3 from this list are:

1.) CS-CART
2.) PRODUCTCART
3.) MAGENTO

currently I run 4 successful e-commerce site with CS-CART. I have migrated from productcart and magento to cs-cart.

CS-CART is the best in my opinion because they offer the best customer support. They have always resolved issues for me. The search engine optimization of CS-CART is great imo.

Product cart is also cool, but hell, it needs a windows server and if you like to have security issues, go for it, but if you're not in the mode for windows problems, use cs-cart.

Magento = Over-rated, full of stuff that doesnt work properly. the backend is so freaking complex, you need 2 years experience to understand it. I like to do stuff myself, and cant stand that support needs to be contacted for any little modification.

Early 2007 I started working with CS-cart....

since then our shops have on average turned over more than 150,000 euro per year without credit card payments.

ISC fixed a lot concerning these variations, it's a good cart. It lacks some very important features though, even the most expensive version does not even offer multilanguage.

CS gives you so much more for a much better price... the $285 professional edition offers more features then the $1800 ultimate Interspire edition.

Just try it for a month! That's really the only way. I tried about 10 carts before deciding on CS-cart and am a happy user now starting my second shop within a year, first one is doing about 10 - 15 sales a day without any issues.

Sorry, but I have to ask... I do you find time to manage a second store?! :confused:
I wish...

After spending 5 full days, testing multiple demos, reading at-least 30 unbiased reviews, i opted for cs-cart, 3 months ago and i still feel it took a right decision.

Hello Awebus,

After spending 5 full days, testing multiple demos


Could you give us the list of your demos tested?

And, if possible, your comment for every shopping cart tested?

Thanks!

Lee Li Pop, that is an excellent idea.
I have read many times "after so much testing I've concluded this cart is for me" but it'll be very enlightening and helpful to know which carts you tested and what you found about them.

For example, let me make a direct question here: have you tested a cart that was light and bugfree, good for seo eventhough it was not as complete as cs-cart? I ask because I need a lighter cart, with less features, not as rich as cscart , that allows me to sell a short catalog and rather make an exposition of the items, not so much a sale.

Note: would opencart be a good candidate being lighter with less features but similar to cscart? has anyone tested it yet?
