osCommerce Is Designed to be Easy For You

osCommerce was first released in 2000 and has a great commitment to open source software. They have an active community of more than 260,000 store owners, developers and service providers. More than 7,000 free add-ons are available for store owners to customize their e-commerce websites.

osCommerce is a complete online shop in a box.  Design your site, track inventory and sales, provide a shopping cart and secure checkout all with one hosting account.  It’s virtually everything a new entrepreneur needs to open shop in the vast digital marketplace.  You don’t need programming skills.  If you’ve got a solid idea and a workable business model, this is where you want to be.

osCommerce is 100% compatible with other ecommerce software and with all host servers.  Every feature of this pack (and there are lots of them) is enabled in the default mode. So, even if you just click ‘Next’ on every prompt screen, your shop is completely operational.
