Best ecommerce solution - Web designer


I'm a freelance web designer who wants to offer ecommerce facilities to my clients.  I'm really looking for something that is:

low cost
easy to implement
easy to add a design to
rock solid

I have been involved in many projects where I have plugged in a gap between graphic designer and developer or client chosen cart (ie. Actinic). But I do not want to make a choice based purely on something I am familiar with.  What solution would people suggest for my position/business?

Hosting platforms will vary unfortunately
Transactions levels will also vary

I prefer to work with PHP but am no stranger to ASP

Look forward to your suggestions.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I recommend the Actinic suite of products: /

Easy to use, powerful and reliable.

Was Actinic any good for you? If not, can you tell me why not?

Hi Karl,

Sorry I have taken so long to reply.  I have just built a solution using Paypal IPN as it was a single product, basic requirements etc.  But I have also been looking into another clients requirements (which would probably fit in with the mainstream).  Actinic is definately up there and for me, I think a great "package solution" at the moment.
