post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know or suggest any good checkout options for a site. I am reading on 2checkout.com but i have never heard of it. Looking for ideas and suggestions.

I am very new in this area

EDIT: i have thought about getting in magento, too.

Ok, first, can you tell us if you've already built the site and just want to add an add to cart/shopping cart/paypal checkout? Or are you just starting and want to use a specific eCommerce framework like ZenCart?

If the first, I use Easybasket (http://www.easybasket.co.uk/). Very simple, just provides you with the shopping cart and an add to cart button, and the shopping cart has the option to checkout with PayPal or Google Checkout. What I do with it is that I just use it for adding the cart, and then pass all the info to PayPal, and use Website Payments Standard to enable checking out with just a credit card, and let PayPal handle all the shipping and taxes using its own built-in calculator, rather than using Easybasket's settings.

If the latter, software like ZenCart will basically provide you with the full website, and you can style it like you want. I don't really like that because I prefer building from scratch based on what I want, but it provides a much, much tighter checkout integration, along with a full CMS for managing your products, sales, etc.

the site is designed and i am just seeing my options for the code now. I would like to use OpenCart. However i am seeing the possibly of getting an SSL certificate for the site. I wouldnt mind doing all payments through PayPal but they take out 3% for businesses. trying to way out the pros and cons. hosting is chosen for this site.

Even if you don't use Paypal, you'll need to get a Merchant Account to Process Credit/Debit Cards which will take out fees which will vary depending on who you get the account from and how much you sell. Might be less or the same as paypal.

If you are building this for someone, make sure to ask what forms of payments they can take before you choose a shopping cart that may not be compatible out of the box.

Google Checkout is another option also

Other Carts I think of :
Virtuemart for Joomla
Magento
AgoraCart
ZenCart
osCommerce
tomatoCart
jCart
openCart as you mentioned

Those are all software solutions, there's also hosted shopping carts but if you already chosen a host, I guess that may not work

As Jonowxeno said, if you're going to process credit cards, you're going to have a percentage taken either way; someone's system is going to have to take care of that credit card charge.

OpenCart is a fine option.
