    Default Anyone using Cubecart or Zencart

    I'm going round in circles trying to get a new website going, I wondered which shopping cart to use, Cubecart or Zencart, any views? i know absolutely nothing about this, the techy guy must have the patience of a saint. I have managed to set up an addon domain, but I don't know what to do next

    Joomla is really easy. My GETi site is based on that system and I've been running it for about 5 years - maybe longer now, time goes fast.

    Thank you Geti, I will try it, I looked at Zencart but it didn't look very nice, ok for selling nuts and bolts but not glass and jewellery. I would like more than one picture of my pieces.
    If I get stuck can I shout for help please?

    Jille - I use cubecart and love it. I did however spend months patiently working on my site to get it the way it looks now, so it certainly isn't an out of the box solution unless you want something fairly basic looking. The admin side of it is good though, and very helpful if you get lots of orders, which I'm sure you are hoping for!

    I know lots of others use Mr Site, which is a simpler solution to set up if you are looking for an easy-ish option.

    thanks for that Emroy jewels, I would like to use something which allows several pictures of each piece, I will have a look at them both. Now I'm going to see if I can find a free download for them

    I use zencart and I'll probably stick with that for a few more years at least as it does what I need it to and I've got used to it. I spent ages getting it just right, and the ebook that you can buy really helped there.
    The only reason that I'd change is to have a custom built one some time in the future when I can afford it, as the admin side of zencart doesn't exactly look welcoming and easy to use at first. There are still parts of it that I don't use and have no idea what they do, but I know how to use everything that I need.
