OpenCart is an online store management system that enables the selling and purchasing of online products. It is PHP-based, using a MySQL database and HTML components. It is a free, open-source ecommerce platform available under the GNU General Public License. This means that OpenCart provides access to its source code in order to modify and customize the online store.
OpenCart is designed feature rich, easy to use, search engine friendly and with a visually appealing interface. It is a complete e-commerce solution that lets you launch your online store, add/manage your products, let your customers use a shopping cart to buy them, and then process their orders. Basically, OpenCart delivers all the standard online store functionality you might need.
The shops look professional, scale well, and provide the admin with a host of features including support for over 20 different methods of payment. While osCommerce has the broad user base that makes it easier to find add-ons or a willing, knowledgeable developer, OpenCart has a far more stylish appearance than osCommerce, and is arguably just as easy to use.
