You shouldn’t get a shopping cart for your online business – they’ll never do enough. Plus installing the scripts are very confusing and not to mention, they’ll need to be installed each time there’s an update (at least twice a year to stay current). And of course, if you don't understand the coding and scripts, you'll have to pay your web developer each time to do this for you. The free solutions out there may be "free", but really end up costing you plenty down the road.

You should look into a total online business platform such as which handles shopping cart, website, customer database and marketing features. It’s a hosted solution so you don’t have to worry about the technical stuff. All the other bases are also integrated, such as the payment gateways, shipping modules etc.
