The SummerCart Open Source Shopping Cart Solution

By | August 6, 2008 7:03 am

From the PR Canada news wire I learned today about an open source PHP ecommerce shopping cart solution that offers a fully search engine friendly catalog, content management, Google checkout, Paypal, Authorize Net, 2CO and Collect on Delivery compatibility, and even real time shipping rates from the world’s largest delivery companies such as UPS, FedEx and the US Postal Service.

SummerCart further supports a multi-language storefront platform and 39 currencies which are updated on a daily basis, as well as free, flat rate and table-based shipping options.

According to the product’s creator, the SummerCart ecommerce shopping cart solution is “99% open source, uses PHP 5, MySQL and Apache, and is carefully designed to be secure, scalable and easy to maintain.”

One of the most attractive features that I noted is the search engine friendly URLS that are created automatically.  Product and catalog pages end in .html and are therefore viewed as being static pages by search engines.  A close runner up has to be the quick check out option that allows users to check out anonymously, without having to register or log in to your web site.

The SummerCart ecommerce shopping cart software is currently being offered with free installation and three months of support through August 31, 2008 at a cost of 225 EURO (about $350 US).
