E-commerce Shopping Cart Review - Nopcart
(Page 2 of 4 )
First up is the Nopcart, produced by the Web design and management company NOPDesign, who are a subdivision of Cyberitas, an Arizona-based Internet site specialist company that has been around for at least 10 years.
The actual work is done by the nopcart.js file, which stores the visitors buying selections to a cookie to handle persistence between the products, cart manager and checkout pages. There are some customization options available, such as modifying the tax amount and minimum order amount, but other than that, you are advised to leave the rest as it is. You are able to link to several of the more prominent payment processing bodies, such as World Pay and Authorize.net, and given a CGI mail application, the cart is able to send order confirmation emails, although these look pretty basic.
You will need to have your own existing site infrastructure, or be planning to build one, in order to use this solution; it comes with no graphical additions whatsoever. Also, aside from the forums on the NOPDesign site, there is no support whatsoever, and although the product is 100 percent free, itís not entirely open source. Nevertheless, this is an excellent, easy to use plug-in shopping cart aimed at people with minimal Web programming experience or those that have either a limited number of items to sell, or who want to get their online store operating at a basic or interim level as of yesterday.
