    Hi all

    Can someone reccommend me a shopping cart program/script (not sure what to call it) that is :

    1- FREE
    2- Will work on a Windows server
    3- Easy to set up and use

    I tried using CubeCart but that fell through after everything got messed up and when it said that its "best" to use a Linux-based server :hsugh:

    Also I have an Authorize.net account, so I guess it would need to compatable with that (though many carts already are)

    My plan has access to SSL stuff as well, so security won't be a problem...

    Any suggestions would help!
    Thanks!

    I tried OsCommerce and that = fail

    Plus, OsCommerce TemplateMonster templates are HORRIBLE!
    TemplateMonster = sloppy coding :wtc:

    eh, from what I've seen for pre-made eCommerce packages osC was the way to go. Most of them unfortunately ARE sloppy.

    Anything else besides OsCommerce one can reccommend?

    I was looking at "Mals E-Commerce" http://www.mals-e.com/

    Because all you need to do is add a "Buy" button...

    But it looks fishy because :
    1) I believe you must go and process all the credit cards
    2) It directs you to their secure server, making it look all sorts of hackerish

    :hs: I'm at my wits end

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    Ok, so this is a BUST as well

    It says "free" version but after a certain amount of time, it expires and stops working

    >FREE
    >can be integrated into an existing website
    >used on windows server

    OSC can do everything. How did it fail? User error?
