Free Shopping Cart Solution - Open Source Ecommerce

AgoraCart is one of the early open source ecommerce shopping cart software solutions offering small businesses and online retailers more flexibility, power, and customization on a larger scale. AgoraCart can be easily installed on your existing website or it can be hosted for you. Built as an Open Source Software ( OSS ) using Perl, our ecommerce shopping cart software is community driven in its design and development, which keeps the focus on the merchant needs. Watch for future versions written in PHP and Ruby in addition to Perl.

Other carts copying our features or flexibility is indeed a form of flattery as we enjoy seeing how our small bits of innovation has helped to change the landscape for small businesses online for nearly a decade and a half. However, our "secret sauce" is in the undocumented flexibility and power that can be like a hidden universe that only the bold explorers ( called AgoraNauts ) dare discover.

Some of the things you can discover as an AgoraNaut is that AgoraCart is very flexible design wise and offers a very wide range of functions & features that allow you to setup an online storefront by using either the available templates or by creating your own. AgoraCart's flexible modular system also allows you complete customization including the store's headers, footers, product pages, order forms, thank you pages, emails, CSS files, and even the Plug in and Play modules. In the end, AgoraCart can be as simple or complex as you make it.
