Have you gone through them yourself to see if they will do everything that you need?  Some people prefer osCommerce while others like Zen or maybe even X-Cart

I would look through each one to see if they provide everything you need ( ie real time shipping, membership login, stock control, etc) then compare the costs of each one.

Hi sydneyguy,

I've used both OS Commerce and Zen Cart and I've found Zen Cart to be better *for my needs*

The problem here is that we don't know what kind of store you want.  It is possible that neither software will work well for you if you don't need the full range of features each package offers.

I love ecommerce templates


Very easy to use and the support is top notch.

Also there are many custom mods to extend the cart.
