AgoraCart Shopping Cart Software

Building the Best Open Source Ecommerce Shopping Cart

AgoraCart is one of the early open source software (OSS) pioneers providing free shopping cart software. For about 20 years we have provided top quality shopping cart solutions for small and medium sized ecommerce businesses. A lot has changed from the early days, but we still proudly produce one of the best ecommerce shopping cart software solutions that offers online retailers flexibility, power, and customization that is second to none for small ecommerce businesses.

AgoraCart is built as Free Open Source Software ( OSS ) using Perl, Javascript, jQuery, HTML 5, CSS 3, Font-Awesome, and popular JS/CSS frameworks such as Materialize and Bootstrap. Our ecommerce shopping cart software is responsive designed, mobile ready, and is community driven in its design and software development, which keeps the focus on your needs - the merchant.

AgoraCart is very flexible design wise and offers a very wide range of functions & features that allow you to setup an online ecommerce shopping cart by using either the available free templates, copying one as a base to start customizing with your own look, or by creating your own from scratch and uploading to your store directories. AgoraCart's flexible modular system also allows you complete customization of the UI / UX ( user interface / user experience) and the CX (customer experience) using templates including the store's headers & footers, product pages (ppincs), order forms, thank you pages, custom emails, CSS files, HTML widgets that customize the default programming code, and even the Plug in and Play modules. In the end, AgoraCart can be as simple or complex as you make it.

AgoraCart can be easily installed on your existing website using our installer script that downloads our shopping cart software, does a basic setup, and links you to your new online store manager to begin customizing your newly installed shopping cart solution. Or, your new shopping cart software can be hosted and managed for you so you do not need to worry about webhosting, designing a website or template.
