The publisher I work for has a website with an incredibly inefficient sales point. It's ludicrous and loses sales. I've finally convinced the owner to look at some decent shopping carts to add to the webpage. Do any of you have recommendations? It needs to interface with PayPal and allow for an immediate ebook download. And it needs to be astoundingly cheap. Ideas?

I use Norabots. It's about $10 a month. There are better ones out there, but they go for $50 and month and up.

Have Fun,
Jeff

Oh, and I forgot to mention that more than 100 items must be allowed... obviously even a small book publisher would have more items.

I use E-junkie. I have a lot of products too. You can look at my shopping cart on the magazine at saferelationshipsmagazine (dot) com. Click on Shopping and you can see it all there. Buy something while you're there! Just kiddin....

PayPal has its own. My biz partner is researching it now, so I don't know much about it, but PayPal also provides inventory, reports, et al.

I found one called Zen Cart that's free. I can't figure out how they make money except through the sale of the user manual. Curious. http://www.zen-cart.com There's an awful lot out there. The choiceless are endless, even in the free-cheap category. All of them get great reviews, with a few complaints to make it interesting. Hard to choose when you really don't need much.

1ShoppingCart is a very powerful system.

It's not just a shopping cart.

It will house your list of customers and your list of subscribers to your ezine.

It also lets you set up your affiliate program.
