    Default Open Source Shopping Carts

    Years ago, I built an ecommerce site based on oscommerce. It worked fine. I eventually changed the platform to a WordPress plugin that was designed for me. I never was completely happy with the second format, by and large because I didn't understand it or the database structure. I would have preferred, looking back, to using Zencart or something else in a subdirectory on the site. I would have had a cohesive site this way rather than one that used the Wordpress tables as well as the plugin tables. I know there are downsides to this approach, but it allows me to more easily add my scripts and makes the site more transportable to a different platform should I decide to do that.

    What are the options today for doing what I described above.

    I have never used it but WooComerce seems to be the hot WordPress plugin for eCommerce. Shopify is another shopping cart that seems to be popular. I may play around with Woo once of these days on one of my smaller sites just to see if I like it.

    I wonder why other people so easily changed their mind from ecommerce to wordpress plugins without thinking the consequences.
