Right now I am sitting here waiting for files to download to transfer to another location. Which got me to thinking about the various shopping carts that I have worked with.
Shopping carts are available in various different languages (PHP, ASP, ColdFusion, etc.), some are free and others are not. Well I’ve been working with one of the free ones, and the time I’m spending on customizing it to fit the design of a site (under a subcontract)…well it would have been less expensive to purchase a certain cart and add it to the site. There are just 5 little include files to drop into any design and voila!!!
Remember free is not less expensive.
