What is a Shopping Cart?
Shopping Cart is a software application that runs on the server where your website is hosted or located. This server is called as Web Server which allows your cutomers to select a product from your product catalog, adding or selecting a specific product to a basket and placing an order for it. The shopping Cart integrates with your website and they are typically links on your webpages that customer need to click on and allow them to search for products located in your database. Many Ecommerce websites have serach box on their website as a part of navigation area. This serach feature is provided by the shopping cart script or software.
Shopping Carts are written in variety of programming languages such as PHP, ASP, Asp.net and others. There are few programming languages which provide full access source code allowing experienced programmers to make modifications in system features of shopping cart. Some shopping carts run on Linux Servers, some on windows servers and few run on both the platform. Depending on the hosting platform you prefer, you can upload your shopping cart files via FTP on the web server. Linux hosting package is recommended for shopping carts written in PHP, MySQL and windows hosting package for carts written in ASP, ASP.net and MSSQL.
Shopping Cart Options
All our web hosting plans include multiple ready to install shopping cart software's. Firstly you will need to setup a merchant account with either PayPal, Google Checkout or 2checkout (whatever you are using as your payment gateway). Then there is a gateway setup option which you will get at the time of installation of the shopping cart on your website. This is how the online shopping wizard’s checkout page will get linked to your PayPal/2checkout account and the online payments done by your clients will get transferred to your account (either through paypal/2checkout, if your client selects paying through their PayPal account) OR through credit cart (if your clients select credit card option for paying the amount).
