When building an eCommerce website there are many various platforms out there to choose from and osCommerce is one of the main contenders. osCommerce was started in March 2000 in Germany by project founder and leader Harald Ponce de Leon as The Exchange Project. As osCommerce has been around for a while, this makes it one of the oldest and most developed eCommerce platforms to choose from. The software has been developed by open source developers for many years making it very robust and one of the well used eCommerce solutions out there.
osCommerce, is it a good solution?
We specialise in osCommerce development and have built various shops using the osCommerce architecture. While for top end eShops we would always recommend using the Magento platform, osCommerce comes a very close second with the various features and easy to use admin panel, making it a good cost-effective option for people looking for an eCommerce shop. With osCommerce being one of the first open source eShops available, it has been well developed over the years and is a favourite for many eShop users. There are various osCommerce modules readily available making this a good expandable option. Some of the main osCommerce features include:
• Multilingual with English, German, and Spanish provided by default.
• Unlimited products and categories.
• Add/Edit/Remove categories, products, manufacturers, customers, and reviews.
• Contact customers directly via email or newsletters.
• Print invoices and packaging lists from the order screen.
• Customers can view their order history and order statuses.
• Breadcrumb trail for easy site navigation.
• Control if ‘out of stock’ products can still be shown and are available for purchase.
• Accept online payment processing (PayPal, 2CheckOut, Authorize.net, iPayment, etc)
• Disable certain shipping services based on a zone basis.
• Flexible tax implementation on a state and country basis.
• Set different tax rates for different products.
If you’re thinking about an eCommerce solution and you’re not sure which platform to choose, then please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we can talk to you about the options available for you. There are just so many options available and all at different costs, so if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be a bit of a minefield. It is fair to say that you normally get what you pay for in the website design and eCommerce website design industry if you have a good web developer. We have had various clients come to us that have not been happy with their previous web designers or just simply have not had good value for money or a good experience. If you are one of these people, then please give Domain Design Agency a chance to restore your faith. We have many client testimonials and don’t mind if you wish to contact any of our clients to verify these.
