    If you want a ready made package then i guess Comersus is good for you. With the source code you could add more
    functionality to it. Have you noted the faetures taht are not available in the free download ?You would be missing out on the things listed here

    . Real Time UPS shipping calculation (now with no external components needed)
    . Real Time United States Postal Service (USPS) shipping calculation (now with no external components needed)
    . Related Products (Cross Selling)
    . Rental Products (Hotel reservations, DVD rental, etc) new!
    . Email to a friend
    . WAP Storefront (Browse, Purchase and Tracking) for Mobile Phones and PDA now with credit card payments
    . WAP BackOffice Revised (Products, Discounts, Orders and Statistics) for Mobile Phones and PDA
    . Fraud Prevention (block or alert about suspicious orders before reaching payment gateway)
    . Off Line Payment with encryption and email notification for Credit Card capture
    . Real Time Best Sellers listing

    to name just a few.
    I would suggest go for it both from a developer point of view and as a customer , and add the functionality thats missing.

    You could also have a look at the code over here
    Not as comprehensive as commersus but still a stable point for you to get started.

    Here you will find a long list of ASP shopping cart:

    I checked your pointer, the shopping cart looks good but I have no direct experience of this shopping cart.

    well, actually i went on to try it. i guess it's not worth setup and modifying it.

    anyone should use only if want to use exactly as given.

    i decided to use php switch instead. i have never used before, but i guess more good free scripts writen in php.

    anyway, thanks for the helps.

    If you end up not liking it there is a great php mysql shopping cart (you should have that on most hosting plans) it is called oscommerce just do a google search for os commerce and it will come up. It is open source as far as I am concerned.

    ya. i'm looking into the oscommerce now.

    too bad my hosting (godaddy) doesn't support password protection to protect the admin folder.

    i'm thinking to change hosting.
