Don’t settle for cheap ecommerce software

To build an online storefront that can maximize Internet sales for your business, you need the best ecommerce software you can find. Don’t settle for an inexpensive, unprofessional ecommerce system, or the return will likely be disappointing.

We have been developing our ecommerce software for over 10 years, turning valuable feedback from companies just like yours into smart and useful features. It’s thanks for this continous effort that ProductCart is among the very best small business ecommerces systems available today.

Here are just a few of the reasons why choosing our shopping carts to power your Internet store truly is a smart idea.

1. Outstanding features

ProductCart contains a pretty incredible amount of features to build and run a successful Internet storefront. Advanced order management options, time-saving store administration tools, smart sales and marketing features: a decade of non-stop development focused on delivering what our customers need.


2. Backed by quality customer service

ProductCart is not a loosely managed project. There’s a real company behind it: NetSource Commerce, Inc. We’ve been in business since 1995 and we take great pride in providing outstanding technical support to our customers.

This is not a marketing pitch, it’s how we do business at NetSource Commerce: every person on staff does customer service, including the founders of the company.

You can also count on extensive documentation and other support resources that are constantly updated, and a very active community of ProductCart users.


3. Robust, flexible, reliable, and secure (PA-DSS Compliant)

ProductCart is the result of over 10 years of non-stop development and fine-tuning on our ecommerce platform. And, most of all, it’s the result of a lot of listening. We truly consider customers part of our marketing team: we constantly receive feedback from our customers and consistently turn their comments and suggestions into new and improved features.

For example, take a look at the kind of sophisticated marketing tools built into ProductCart. In this and other examples, it will become clear to you that we thrive on developing ecommerce software that truly meets your business’ needs.

And don’t take our word for it: many customers have written glowing reviews for our shopping carts. And this is because they found in ProductCart exactly what they were looking for.

Last, but certainly not least, ProductCart v4 is PA-DSS Compliant. This means that our shopping cart software has been audited and verified to be compliant with the strict requirements of the Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS). This is a key part of demonstrating PCI compliance for your e-commerce business.


4. Advanced store management

ProductCart’s Control Panel allows you to manage every aspect of your online storefront through an intuitive, point-&-click interface (see demo).

You will be able to effectively run your ecommerce store regardless of your or your staff’s technical skills. Dozens of features were specifically developed to increase productivity and minimize repeat tasks.

Among the many money- and time-saving tools:

  • Product and Customer Import Wizards
  • Image upload & resize, which automatically creates multiple images for your products
  • “Global changes” tools to quickly update multiple products at once
  • Ability to clone products and copy many product settings (options, discounts, etc.) to other products
  • AJAX-driven search feature everywhere a search is needed
  • Batch processing and batch shipping of multiple orders at once
  • Built-in shipping label printing for FedEx and UPS
  • Built-in integration with dozens of payment gateways
  • QuickBooks ready shopping cart: automatic synchronization between your store and QuickBooks
    • Web orders become invoices or sales receipts in QuickBooks
    • Inventory levels are automatically adjusted when you receive a shipment in QuickBooks

We encourage you to use our fully functional demos to test the Control Panel and see for yourself.


5. Anywhere, anytime

ProductCart allows you to manage your online store at anytime and from anywhere an Internet connection and a browser are available. That’s because ProductCart is an online shopping cart: the software runs entirely on your Web server. This means that you can manage your store at any time, from anywhere, using a standard browser.

You can also set up additional administrative accounts, with limited access to certain areas of the Control Panel, and have them help you manage the store from wherever they are.


6. Seamless integration with your Web site design

A simple truth: people don’t buy from unprofessional-looking stores. So don’t settle for an ecommerce system that doesn’t give you full control of the look and feel of your online storefront. With ProductCart, you can build a nice looking, powerful ecommerce store, seamlessly integrated with the rest of your Web site.

The process of adding our shopping carts to your existing (or new) Web site is a quick and easy one for anybody with some knowledge of HTML. If you have a Web designer, they will be able to take care of this task for you without any problems.

The best way to get a good picture of how well ProductCart can be merged into any Web site design is to read these interesting case studies, or view other real stores that use our software.


7. Advanced payment and shipping options

Our shopping carts have been integrated with third-party systems to extend their functionality. Specifically, ProductCart supports “out of the box” the most popular payment gateways to allow you to process payments in real-time. This means that with just a few clicks you can turn on popular payment system such as PayPal, Google Checkout, Authorize.Net, Payflow Pro, and many others.

In addition, the system can interface with FedEx, UPS, USPS and CanadaPost for real-time shipping rate calculation. If you use UPS, FedEx, or USPS, you will also appreciate the ability to finalize shipments and print shipping labels right from the ProductCart Control Panel.


8. Smart marketing tools

Our shopping cart software contains a large number of marketing features to help you grow sales on your online store, like the Sales Manager, new in v4.5. You will have quick access to a number of tools that help you promote products in your storefront: promotions, cross selling, product bundles, best sellers, new arrivals, featured items (store-wide and at the category level), specials, etc.

In addition, ProductCart provides you with the tool you need to promote the conversion rate for new customers (free shipping, instant coupons, quantity discounts, etc.), and promote repeat purchases (sophisticated electronic coupons, gift certificate, gift registries, etc.).

9. Product configurator

Here is a challenge for you. Look anywhere and see if you can find a shopping cart system comparable to ProductCart Build to Order. Something that can help you get online quotes for a catered event as easily as selling fully configurable laptop computers. The answer is: you won’t. There is simply nothing like it at a similar price point.

ProductCart Build To Order uniquely combines a shopping cart, quoting software, and a product configurator. It is used in all kinds of scenarios where the customer has to specify what they need during the ordering process: from industrial machinery to custom-built outdoor decks. Your imagination is truly the limit. If you are selling customizable products and services or need a system that allows you to obtain requests for quotes on your Web site, Build To Order is for you.


10. Customizable

ProductCart is not a hosted solution: when you purchase a license, you receive the full source code, and can customize most of it. If you are proficient with Classic ASP, you will be able to make modifications to the system so that it better fits your needs. If you do not have programmers on staff, you can ask a Web developer to help you. Start by contacting one of our authorized resellers, who are experts in providing complete ecommerce solutions built with ProductCart.

And by the way: are you a Web designer, a Web developer or a Web hosting company? We have developed a great reseller program for you. NetSource Commerce doesn’t offer turnkey solutions: you will. In other words, you will receive tons of ecommerce leads from us, on top of discounts on our ecommerce software, of course. And your customers will love the online stores that you will build for them using ProductCart. More details about becoming a ProductCart reseller.


The success of your ecommerce Web site is strongly affected by the software you choose to run it.

  • Don’t go with a cheap solution.
  • Choose the best ecommerce software for your Internet business.
  • Give our shopping cart software a try. ProductCart will not disappoint you!
