storefront software

Does anyone know of any good storefront software for linux? Basically the
software should allow and control a database full of products, with
various categories of products and levels of descriptions along with
pictures, etc. There is need for an administrative interface for adding,
deleting and editing new products. There should also be a shopping cart
system, no need for realtime ordering but realtime s&h calculation would
be helpful…

Any options out there? Don’t want to spend months putting something like
this together if something already exists that will work better.

I’m digging miva right now. It’s helping me transition from ccnow:

It has all the features you mentioned…

Actually I’ve been playing with osCommerce all day and it seems to be
pretty well packed :slight_smile:

You can see it in action at:

I don’t see an option for an affiliate program though…

Re: storefront software

Who are you using for payment processing, if you don’t mind me asking? I
get miva merchant free with my hosting package, so I’m interested in trying
any way to get away from ccnow. Also, doesn’t miva hurt in the search
engines?

Re: storefront software

you can still make static HTML pages that just link into your miva shopping
cart (kinda like you do now with ccnow).

I use propay with miva and it seems to be working out OK. We’ll see if the
sales hold up for the next month or so. You have a higher volume of sales
than I do, but it may be worth it to you to use their “limit increase”
request, or contact them directly about your needs (and you wish to leave
ccnow) they might work out something for you.

I like that I don’t have to wait 15 days or more for my funds to be
available. 2-3 day is much more do-able.

Thanks for the info. Makes sense.

I’ll definitely check into it. Even if I have to get a full blown “merchant”
account…I’m sick and tired of ccnow’s crap!!! The last couple of months
they have taken longer and longer for the money to transfer. It took 7
business days (excluding and holidays) last pay period, and it seems they
don’t care about their clients either. I was on the phone with the most rude
MOFO there is and he acted like I was bothering him by asking him a simple
question. Call me old fashioned, but if someone doesn’t treat me like my
business makes a difference…I take it elsewhere.

2-3 days sounds much better!

Re: storefront software

yeah, when I think about your volume, it seems like a “regular” merchant
account would be better for you. Your sales are constant, so you wouldn’t
have the worry of paying needless monthly fees with no sales. It’s still
usually like $50+ a month in fees, but you are probably paying more than
that with the 9% from ccnow.

It’s just a lot more time consuming than ccnow’s convenient “point click
ship”
