    Default OsCommerce, Zen-Cart or OsCommerce Loaded

    I'm getting ready to implement another storefront for a client. All of these are overkill and should serve our needs. Of these 3 which would you recommend? Is either more reliable than the other, etc.? I'm leaning towards Zen-Cart at the moment. Forums are very busy and full of good stuff. Of course there is always a couple of others...

    My selection so far is in this order (forst 3 are oscommerce based):
    http://www.zen-cart.com
    http://chainreactionweb.com/info/hos...ce-hosting.php
    http://www.oscommerce.com/
    http://www.x-cart.com/

    Anyone else have 10 orders per day experience or suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Default Zen Cart looks pretty cool

    I use x-cart and it works perty well but it's way beyond me to do any major modifications. I cannot tell yet if zencart has all the options xcart has, but it looks pretty nice. And you can't beat the price or the philosphy (KISS) backing it. If zencart allows setting different memberships levels so you can provide wholesale pricing at different levels like xcart, it would work for me. I may try it.

    Zen-cart is cool, but the back end is difficult for non-savvy or even almost-savvy clients to use, and has a lot of little issues that end up really bugging me. However, I do feel it is way more elegant than OSCommerce. I have not used the others, but I would really enjoy finding a cart that isn't such a pain to maintain. Maybe some day I'll make my own and then everyone can tell me how much of a pain it is while I love it because it works the way I think it should. :>

    Zencart is a PAIN in the ass to use. Having said that though, it's a significant improvement over OScommerce.. that and it's still in development (last I checked, OScommerce was stuck in version 2.3b or something).

    If you want something simplier, take a look at the ecommerce module of joomla.. it's less messy

    I vote zen-cart - takes a while to get your head around, but is really flexible once you get into any customisation
