    Nice product HI: have had a play in the past only downside is that a lot of the extentions you have to pay for and some are not cheap;

    Fantastic news – really useful. I’ve successfully installed OpenCart a number of times and this will speed up the process – not to mention promote its existence to a wider audience. Not only a powerful tool for implementing a site, but the back-end admin for the site owner is wonderfully easy too. Many of the useful extensions are in fact free, but those that are not are well worth the money – a massive boost to a developer’s array of tools.

    Well done to the team at Heart Internet for listening to customer requests!

    What a fantastic bit of kit! In the past I have always used FreeWebStore, but OpenCart’s back-end admin is far superior. Excellent work HI.

    I requested this script to be included some time ago so pleased to see it now included. Opencart is one of the best Open Source shopping carts and is getting better with each revision. Just watch out for the upgrade process though as it is not yet fully automatedand if you have a non standard template can cause the site to break.I have been using it for 2 years and you can see a couple of my sites at http://www.sheffieldprogolf.co.uk and http://www.icswretail.co.uk both hosted on Heart Internet. Well done for including OpenCart.

    Opencart is the best of all. I used OSC for a while and tried a few others also.
