OpenCart is an open source shopping cart that is built with PHP & stores the data in MySQL. The application has every standard feature an e-commerce website may need like:
- Unlimited categories
- Multiple images for products
- Customer reviews
- Multiple currencies & more.
OpenCart’s front & backends can be expanded with modules (there are already more than 30 modules). It has also support for:
- Multiple payment gateways
- Multiple languages
- Various shipping methods (like weight based shipping) & more.
The open source shopping cart system can be managed with an easy-to-use administrator panel where all the orders can be viewed, products can be defined, etc.
A very nice feature OpenCart offers is the "coupons" where discounts can be set on a "per product" basis. There is also another open source e-commerce project named OpenCart Zero which is derived form OpenCart.
Requirements: PHP, MySQL
