looking for a free ecommerce solution that is customizable

I found some sites here. Has anybody tried any of them? I need to be able to customize it to match the client's website. I like the simplicity of Simple.js. Has anybody used that one before? Experiences, thoughts?

What is their website loaded on? From your link, some of them are standalone, and some require a CMS.

Simple looks nice. Their demo doesn't work but the cart on the front page does.

It will be built on the Ning platform which isn't open to a lot of integrating so I'd probably need a standalone.

I know everyone will grumble but I've just built a wp site using http://www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/ and I cant fault it one bit. Great to bolt onto an existing site or would work as a standalone.

Do you have a link to the site? I'd like to see how it turned out. If not, I'll just sign up for the demo and check it out.

-edit- Never mind, the site won't be built on WP.

This is a great shopping cart - I've used it myself and its a piece of piss to integrate and style to match a site.

Thanks, that does look really easy to use. So far it's between that and Simple for me.

Why on earth would you use javascript to power an e-commerce site?

Surely as google crawlers ignore javascript, they won't be able to crawl the website, therefore your product pages won't appear in google search results.

That is a good point. Possibly, some of these sites also work without JS but even if they don't, I'm building a site for a musician who will get most of his store traffic from his website so I don't think it'll be a huge deal. But thanks for the heads up.

I built and maintain a shop using Prestashop which has been going for the last 18 months. For a free e-commerce solutions it's been pretty good but there is a real lack of support generally. It can also be frustrating trying to find modules for features that aren't included in the base software.
