The simple PHP shopping cart is the easiest way to add e-commerce to your website. Display products on any HTML or PHP page. Easily style the checkout process to match your website, and process payments through PayPal, Google Checkout or Direct Bank Transfer. Try the online demo to see just how easy it is to make a new product.

Who is this for?

  • Anybody who needs a quick and easy way to add a shopping cart system to their existing website
  • Websites selling a small number of products that do not require a large bulky system
  • People who don’t need stock management, or order history

  • Copy & Paste the generated HTML code onto your website where you would like the ‘add to cart’ button to appear.
  • You can paste the ‘add to cart’ button under an existing photo or description of your product, this is great for adding a shopping cart to an existing website that only has product information on it.
  • Some CSS examples on how to style the product layout
