Hi guys,

Does anyone here have any experience with hopping Cart software for a website?

GoDaddy offer Quick Shopping Cart for about $15 a month, includes web hosting but was wondering if there was a better option or a more local option?

Any feedback would be great.

Cheers,

Abit more info would be good, such as number of products you are wanting to sell, other features that are a must (such as putting products on sale, recommend best sellers etc), plus what are you using to process payments (Paypal or DPS etc).

I think you just asked all the religous leaders of the world "who is best?"

I wouldn't bother with GoDaddy or any such massive place because support will be minimal to non-existant.

Do you expect to make money with the business, if so then just go to a web developer and have it done properly.

PM me if you want a pointer to some.

Will have to second that, make sure you check out their credentials though, anybody can be a 'web developer' but someone that has done a shopping cart on their portfolio. An 'online shop' as such.

a vague answer to your vague question,

I believe www.webbase.co.nz do a deal merchanting - not sure tho...


www.webfarm.co.nz certainly have a range of e-commerce webhosting products starting from $19.95
 I haven't used either of them, so I wouldn't know if they are any good. but its a bit more local and less bad connotations than godaddy




Mobile devices and more
