Default Shopping Carts?

Can anyone help me out? I am trying to add a shopping cart to my website so that people can actually check out. Are there free ones out there and if so, any recommendations? Also, anyone use Paypal or something similar to that? How much do they charge- is it monthly or based on the profit you make?

Any advice would be very much appreciated!
Kimberly

I use PayPal's shopping cart right now, but I'd love to have this information too!

there are a lot of free shopping cart software available. I use zen-cart: free, open source shopping cart software from Zen Cart It allows you to accept PayPal or money order. Currently I accept PayPal only.

My shopping cart is located at www.hipgirlclilps.com/store. All you can see is from zen cart. On back end, I installed a module to submit my products to google froogle (free) and submit my website's sitemap to google. I like the flexibility.

I have no experience with paid shopping cart software. But, I think they must be very easy to use other wise nobody will buy them.

Please refer to the thread below about website hosting and shopping cart software.

do not ever use zen cart.
they sold my account and now i can't manage my husband's site.
i am completely locked out and they do not offer customer support.
they tell you to post your issue and maybe someone can help.

paypal works very well though.

Thanks ladies. I think I have set up a shopping cart through Mal's e-commerce and have signed up to be able to accept paypal. I am still working through the kinks of trying to figure out how to link it all to my website.

I'm going to set up the demo zencart site sometime in 2008 (hopefully) so everybody who are interested can play around with it.

I don't think they have customer support because it's not a company. Only a support forum in which you can ask questions.

I like it because it gives me more choices. Hundreds of modules can be installed. The other example is 'easy populate' module which allows me edit the inventory in a spreadsheet and upload to the server. Saved me days and days of time.

I'm a IT person so I can figure it out. But I do think it's hard to configure.
