Os-Commerce stands for open source commerce. It is a free program for eCommerce management. Though any program has its advantages and disadvantages, OsCommerce allows for free and easy creation of workable and user friendly eCommerce sites. It hinges on the collaborative efforts of users, who help one another troubleshoot, as well as customize their software to meet the individual needs of one’s particular business.
Pros and cons of OS-Commerce
There are many advantages to this suite of software tools. First and foremost, it is free, which is hard to pass up. When used as is, it is a fairly easy to use, comprehensive suite of software tools that allow for the easy creation and management of e-commerce sites. The software is community oriented and offers a large support network for troubleshooting and creation questions.
Of course, there are also negative aspects of the software, too. While all open source software is customizable down to the tiniest detail, one must possess the knowledge to know how to do it. Customizing Os-Commerce software requires significant programming knowledge that many E-Commerce store owners do not have. There is a much higher learning curve with this software as opposed to other for-pay management systems.
As noted above, to really make the software suite do exactly as you’d like it to, one must possess advanced knowledge of certain programming languages. They must also have the ability to “go it alone” as this is an area of the program where customer support is lacking. This is the realm for those who know how to fix their own problems and are fluent in the required languages. It is highly helpful, it you want to customize the software, to have an in depth understanding of both PHP and HTML. This is specialized knowledge that, again, many do not have. However, it is only applicable for those who want to seriously tweak the software.
A basic, free, fairly easy-to-use program if one uses it as is, Os-Commerce is an excellent way to set up a new E-commerce site or integrate their software into your existing site. While certain aspects of the software may leave a bit to be desired, it is hard to deny the utility that this free program offers.
