    I'm currently building an online store for a business I work for. Just wondering if anyone on here has or is building an online store using this software.

    I used it for a client I was working on. Seemed pretty good from what I could see (up until the point the bastard stiffed me and left me holding the bag for hosting and work done).

    I have a couple of buddies that use it as well and they recommend it.

    I ran a store under it for about a year with no problems. I also set them up almost daily for customers. I work for a web hosting company.

    It's good software and the support forums over there have a wealth of information.

    How much does it cost to setup a (very very small) store? Say, just selling the odd t-shirt? Not worth it?

    But for securing payments and that stuff..? Surely you gotta buy/have an SSL cert?

    It intergrates with Paypal which is free to setup although watch out for paypal fees.

    yeah, you'll have SSL Certification.

    But one huge thing is, if you sue PayPal the credit card information stuff is done through PayPal, not you.

    I also use 2checkout.com to process credit cards, they are pretty good, and work well with oscommerce.

    Doesn't integrate well with authorize.net, IMG or IGS from my experience.

    Expect to pay a little more for a payment processor because the bargain ones try and lock osCommerce out.

    I have never had a issue with authorize.net and oscommerce... Where I /did/ see a problem was people using the old SIM (Simple implemenation Method) pack that has been floating around for quite some time on OSCommerce.. As most merchants now require some extra security measures (IE the 3 digit security number on the back of the card), so you have to do a AIM (Advanced) method.. I wrote a script if anyone wants, using Auth.net's AIM class.

    I was just looking for people actually using it right now to communicate with chat with over AIM or something with questions I had and even questions they had.
