Webshops with osCommerce
Modern, modular and scalable
An internationally active developer community ensures that osCommerce’s open source software always remains at the cutting edge of technology. And for almost every wish there is a suitable extension, which can also be integrated free of charge.
An osCommerce shop offers the user interfaces to different merchandise management systems, so that these can be combined to multishop solutions. Independent of a provider, the shop system can be installed on your own server. As a user you have complete control over your osCommerce shop and your data.
Most offshoots retain the basic functions of the shop system anyway, only convert certain areas or connect it, for example, to the large payment systems. Unfortunately, more than 90000 online shops targeted by hacker attacks targeting customer data in 2011 due to massive security vulnerabilities. Shortly thereafter, the security gap was closed and no further attacks have been reported since then.
An important feature of online shops is the almost complete freedom of shop design and shop functions. osCommerce is no exception, more than 7000 modules are now available for the shop system. On the server side, the open source system is written in PHP, a scripting language for dynamic websites. MySQL is used as database and Apache as server. While the installation is still quite fast, PHP knowledge is very helpful for configuration and adaptation. Originally there was no template engine available in this system for designing the shop interface, but it was subsequently integrated. The softwareosCommerce Online Merchant can therefore be used on web servers for the operating systems Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac OS and administered with a web browser.
As an open source project osCommerce is very adaptable and offers users the possibility to set up and manage an online shop without high costs. The software is the optimal basis for online shops for small and medium-sized companies. Although the software is out-of-the-box with sophisticated functions such as:
already provides a complete shop system, there are countless extensions and modules. The online shop is also scalable and can be adapted to the individual needs of customers. By using the flexible template engine, osCommerce templates can be created with an individual design or adapted to specific industries.
The administrator area includes basic functions such as creating, changing or deleting products and categories. On request, the software creates statistics about various products or customers. Product attributes can be managed just as easily as different tax classes or tax rates. When supplemented with additional modules, the shop system also works with a variety of payment and shipping systems. For those who want to upgrade their shop further, numerous modules such as special offers, prices only for certain customers, printing of invoices and delivery notes and much more are available. User data can be protected by an encrypted SSL connection. Due to the enormous spread of mobile devices, it is especially the online shop for the display on the iPhone or Android smartphone to optimize. Powerful modules are also available for this purpose.
