Hosted Carts

- By internet Giants.

Amazon.com – Earn cash by selling your stuff on Amazon.com. It’s easy, it’s fast, and it doesn’t cost you a penny until your item sells.

Yahoo.com – While Yahoo offers you the ability to use their shopping cart on a site you build yourself, their wizard powered store is by far their most popular product. It offers you pre-built templates for the look, but uses their own brand of HTML, which makes hiring a designer for a unique look almost a necessity.

Stores.eBay.com – eBay stopped being just an auction site a long time ago and offers you the chance to set up your own storefront on their popular site.

Google.com – Use the shopping cart wizard or customize a few lines of HTML to add the cart to your website. You’ll receive and process orders through Google Checkout. Customers can easily add, view, and edit items in their cart without leaving your site, then complete their purchases with Google Checkout.

Purchasable Self-Hosted Carts

1ShoppingCart – 1ShoppingCart offers you the ability to add “œBuy Now” buttons to your already existing site, while offering you many of the features you expect from complete shopping carts.

e-Junkie – E-junkie provides shopping cart and buy now buttons to let you sell downloads and tangible goods on your website. It supports PayPal, Google Checkout, Authorize.Net, TrialPay, ClickBank and 2CheckOut.

    Correct, then probably you can update it when you have time, as this question is still valid even today.

      The question is valid but then as I have no personal experience with your cart and other integrations, I possibly will not be able to add it.

    @Shabbir Somewhere in the corner I was hoping to see Shopable.in but disappointed not to find it anywhere :-)
    Anyways, any of you guys interested in setting up your online store, please feel free to try out Shopable ecommerce platform. We fall into the category of “Purchasable Self-Hosted Carts” as Shabbir mentioned above.

    Cheers,

      Amit, this article was published on November 20, 2009 and shopable.in started way after that. On top of that I have no hands on experience with your shopping cart as of today and so it would not be fair to suggest something which I have not tried at all.
