5. osCommerce

It is one of the oldest free e-commerce software that offer several marketing options and supports most of the payment system. This multilingual and SEO friendly app works with PHP/MySQL. In the first versions ,I think this software hard to use . Not-friendly interface and admin panel ,template is coded in table ,not standard CSS . It's better in recent versions . But I think it's not a good one if user have no knowledge on HTML,and PHP ... (just my opinion ^^)

6. Prestashop


Very easy to use ,sleek and simple interface in Web 2.0 style - this is the advantage of PrestaShop . With this open source you can create special deals such as gift vouchers, price reductions, tag products, sell virtual goods and service. I love this software .

7. Wordpress


When this plugin comes to life ,it proved that Wordpress can work as a platform for eCommerce . Many discussions for its security ,but I think this aspect is improved . It’s a plugin that includes all the vital features of wordpress for managing content. Those who are acquainted with wordpress  themeing can do lot for their  store. I've never see any large store in internet using this solution ,but with a small ones ,I think it quite good . Using and modify Wordpress's plugin is always easier than others .

10. Simplecart(js)

I've never considered SimpleCart as an ecommerce platform . It's just contain some script files and we can make only shopping cart with this software .No dashboard,no stock management ...Checkout process via the PayPal. The products are displayed in a single page with an outstanding interface . If you has a large store and want to make big money ,SimpleCart is not for you . But if you have a blog in Blogger and want to sell somethings ,you will love it . I made a tutorial for using SimpleCart in Blogger for a shop ,you can see it here
