shopping cart software


we would like to setup an internet store

does anyone have any recommendations for a shopping cart software package?

we'd like some compatibility with paradox - like so we could update the stock table and descriptions

version 8

RE: shopping cart software

You could use Paradox as the frontend, to create the pages either statically or dynamically.

And then use Paypal for the shopping and taking of monies.

I don't think I'd recommend it dynamically for a large site with thousands of items and/or thousands of users, though, since Paradox is single threaded.

RE: shopping cart software

I've heard good things about http://www.oscommerce.com/ although I've never used it I know several people who use and like it. It uses a mySql database, Paradox can easily upload data to mySql using the MySql Odbc driver.
