What is osCommerce?
osCommerce is simple and straightforward e-commerce and online store-management software that can be installed on any website that has PHP and MySQL installed. It is available as a free platform under the GNU General Public License. osCommerce is truly an open-source program that is worked on continuously by thousands of developers. More than 260,000 different stores are currently operating through the osCommerce platform. Support for the program is mostly found through its rich online community where users and developers converge for ideas, complaints, solutions, and suggestions.
osCommerce’s most recent product is the Online Merchant v2, a comprehensive self-hosted online store platform that comes with both a catalog frontend and an administration tool backend which can be quickly and effortlessly installed and modified via a web-based installation process.
