OpenCart is a popular open source shopping cart software written in PHP (Hypertext Pre-Processor) that gains popularity daily. It was the winner of the 2011 OSC (Open Source E-Commerce Awards). This shopping cart software was built from the ground up by Daniel Kerr using a sound MVC (Model View Controller) framework. It is rich in features and very user friendly. OpenCart’s functional code logic is streamlined hence making it easier to adapt. This also makes it very easy to customize unlike other open source e-commerce solutions. Open cart is widely used by shop owners and designers as it is secure, fast and very well supported.
Even without any OpenCart extensions, you will be able to access a multitude of features such as product review capabilities, downloadable products, multi language capabilities and product ratings.
