Shopping Cart System Buying Tips

What to look for, what to ask, and what features to consider when adding a shopping cart to your website.
Helpful tips when implementing your shopping cart

Consider the Following Criterias:
1. How much will it cost upfront?
2. Is it an online 3rd party "service" or a software I load and setup on my Webserver?  Am I prepared to do the programming myself on my webserver or have someone available to set this up for me?
3. What's the monthly recurring charges?
4. How simple is the shopping cart to setup and implement?  What's the learning curve?
5. Will I have to discard all my current webpages and build new pages based on the new shopping cart system, or can I just simply plugin the shopping cart feature to my existing site?
6. Is there a revenue sharing fee with this shopping cart system?

Consider the Following Shopping Cart Solutions Pros & Cons:
1. Back End Software Based Systems.  (Such as Miva, Monster Commerce)
Pros:
. No Monthly Recurring Fee.

Cons:
. High front end purchase Cost
. Must redo entire website and redesign and reprogram using the proprietary software
. You're locked into their software for life, or until you change systems.
. Time to execution is long.  Some programming and major learning curve involved.
. Heavy load on your main webserver.
. Will need an SSL Account with Verisign or other service provider.

2. Custom Software Systems (Using PHP/Mysql or ASP.NET or .NET, Coldfusion, or other)
Pros:
. The shopping cart is exactly how you want it to be.
. No monthly recurring Costs.

Cons:
. High cost to setup (Programmers are not cheap)
. Time to execute is very long.  Be prepared to be very patient.
. Be prepared to find bugs and problems for the first 6 months.
. May need to redesign website around the new programming scheme.
. Do you really know what you want in a shopping cart?
. Will need an SSL Account with Verisign or other service provider.

Cons:

. You're locked into them for life for hosting services too.
. Lacks flexibility.


4. Simple Plug In Shopping Cart System Add-On Module Systems (Such as Ecartsoft)

. Customer is taken off your webpage when viewing their shopping cart or checking out.
