OpenCart is an open source PHP-based online shopping cart system. A robust e-commerce solution for Internet merchants with the ability to create their own online business and participate in e-commerce at a minimal cost.
The Proniit Group (a.k.a Proniit Online Media and Marketing) has released a web site that is dedicated to promoting the open source project, Open Cart, which is an online PHP based e-commerce shopping cart released under the GPL. The site was created to garner further development and both community support and commercial support. The site caters to anyone and does not necessarily restrict its’ users to be based in South Africa although commercial support will only be available here.
The site has deployed an open source standard using various technologies including WordPress, OpenID and the like for configuration thereof. There is a need for clean and open source software that can and will generate the sort of user experience that is expected throughout the world and this site offers it.
Open Cart is clean, neat and very user-friendly on both the end-user side and the administration side. Because it is written in PHP, it uses rather simple techniques that most developers will be comfortable applying. Open Cart is definitely the choice for The Proniit Group to make use of when implementing online stores for clients.
