6 of the Best Free Linux eCommerce Software

6 of the Best Free Linux eCommerce Software

Online shopping is the activity that consumers engage in when purchasing products or services over the internet. This activity has many distinct advantages over 'traditional shopping' for both consumers and the businesses.

eCommerce enables businesses to stay open all of the time, expand their customer and geographical reach, provide the potential to reduce costs, and allow for niche targeting. The consumer benefits in many ways too, including the convenience of being able to shop any time of the day (or night), avoiding queuing, travel expenses, have more transparency over prices, etc.

This feature focuses on shopping cart software, which is software used in eCommerce to enable consumers to purchase goods and services online. Anyone who wishes to run an eCommerce site has a wide range of platforms and software to choose from, many of them being proprietary. However, if you want to operate an eCommerce site, Linux makes a strong platform, with a wide selection of Open Source eCommerce software available.
