OS Commerce vs Pinnacle Cart

OS Commerce vs Pinnacle Cart

OS Commerce is a free, open-source E-Commerce solution for online business. Because of it’s price, it’s one of the most downloaded storefront solutions and has a large community of users. Because this solution is built by contributions and submissions, it tends to be quite buggy, inconstant and many components are poorly tested or not tested at all. Without any programming knowledge it can be difficult to get OS Commerce working for your business. Often times companies end up paying much more on support and programming as they would have by simply going with a commercial solution.
