    I've been informed that I didn't hate on oscommerce enough in my previous post.

    OSC IS A GIANT PIECE OF BLOATED GOATASS THAT IS POORLY MAINTAINED AND HAS AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE DUE TO DEVELOPER DISINTEREST. I'D RATHER CHOP MY DICK OFF, STICK IT IN A BLENDER WITH SOME ICECREAM, AND DRINK THE RESULTING DICKSHAKE THAN USE OSCOMMERCE.

    my buddy just used magento to build a site and it looks pretty slick, the backend is nice and it seems to work well. I've used osCommerce on a few sites and I never had a problem... lots of support forums, mods, and pretty easy to find help.

    well i am building a site for a guy who works for a brance of zerox. i guess he sells laser printers and stuff. I just need something simple like OsCommerce or Zencart. just need to know which one is better/easier to apply templates to.

    seems like the OSCommerce's 'STS' add-on makes template integration easy. I am torn. need to make a decision soon though

    I've been using prestacart. I don't recommend it :embd: I'm debating abandoning prestacart/shop whatever the fuck its called and possibly picking up magento

    When I was looking for cart software I pretty much tried everything. And I was going to use magento, but I couldn't get products to show on the homepage . I think at the time it was only possible with changing code :mad:

    And I ended up with
    http://prestashop.com/

    Very easy to use, nice looking and the only thing I didn't like about it was that it had a couple small bugs. But I think those have been fixed with the newest version.:o

    Here is my moola cashback store if you want to have a look:

    I think OS Commerce is about the worst looking cart software made. It looks like it hasn't been updated in 10 years :ugh:

    Presta Shop and Magento are the best looking shops out there:squint:
