I'm looking to purchase a Shopping Cart package that I can use to create E-Commerce sites for clients.

It needs to be secure, reliable, easy to use and update. I also need a package that allows fairly simple theme amendments.

Does anyone have any recommendations or advise?

Hi, I suggest the Avactis shopping cart, because it has all the features you mentioned. It's also accepting lots of payment methods (incl. Google Checkout). You can download a free demo and test for yourself.

Yes, I agree with Rob. I use for my clients often Virtuemart.
You can see this in action here:

If you know PHP then ZenCart is a pretty good place to start. It's open source and easily configurable.

I've setup a number of shopping carts so have a fair bit of real world experiance. One I wouldn't be going for now is Magento Shopping Cart. It has some neat features but it's a long way from being ready for a production server. Just getting to grips with the admin and loading products will put most people off (lets just say it's not microsoft). People who recommend this product clearly have never run a shoping site in the real world. If they disagree they can list the sites already using Magneto with more then 1000 products.

ZenCart is fine but so are most of the offshoots of OScomerce shoping cart. The are 5 or 6 of those and most are supported well by the OS comunity. I tend to think ZenCart is the less customisable of the bunch as all the site seem to look very boxy.

But it really depends what you can do and what kind of products you want to sell and your clients. It might be worth going for an OS product but not if you can't afford the time and a decent hosting package.

Checkout www.websitehandyman.co.uk he might be able to help more at no cost.

The fear of losing what you already have will always be greater then the fear of not getting what you may want.

I would suggest a hosted shopping cart system. They tend to be a little more but they are very well maintained and are full of great features. The one that we use at Bucca is Volusion. They are fully skin'able and full of features.

You need a highly customizable shopping cart solution. I will recommend you to use the E-commmerce Software provided by Pulse Solutions. They can create custom e-commerce software to match the needs of each specific portal. This system is not only ideal for selling products but also for services, subscriptions, charities, custom rental fees and many more.

I absolutely love osCommerce like Hossam does. I like zencart as well for a shopping cart.

How many people have used Google Checkout? I have heard both good and bad about them. One thing I have heard, is they do not have any customer support. It is all automated support?

I worked with zen cart recently and it worked better than the other free carts out there.

Rohit, Emerchant is good, but I still think OSCommerce is much better. It is so easy to use and the overall quality looks fantastic compared to Emerchant.
