simpleCart(js) – A Lightweight JavaScript Shopping Cart

SimpleCart(js) is an easy to use and lightweight JavaScript shopping cart that allows you to setup an e-commerce store in a few minutes. It requires no database or programming knowledge – all you need to know is some basic HTML. In order to have simpleCart(js) implemented, you will need to call a small JavaScript file (20kb) into your web pages and afterwards use some special class to format your items.

simpleCart(js) currently works with PayPal and Google Checkout. It has support for multiple currencies and tax rate. Its flexible cookie based cart feature allows buyers to add, remove and adjust quantity of items to be ordered.

This is an excellent script if you’re looking to only sell a few items using PayPal or Google Checkout. You can find a list of other free PHP shopping carts on Hot Scripts.

  1. I use simplecart for one of my sites and it is a very simple way to set up a shopping cart if you intend to accept payments via google or paypal checkout. if you know basic HTML then its very straightforward to set up.

  2. I am very interested in finding out more about simplecart. I like the fact that it is so lightweight as i have been using Zencart and it is so heavy on the server. .-= Allan
