My wife and I are planning to launch my small business and am at the phase where i want to implement a shopping cart / ecommerce solution. (My ebay store will open shortly as well).
Im a software developer by trade and would not mind using an open source solution as opposed to a hosted solution unless i can find a hosted solution that handles all my business needs (for the right price of course).
If anyone out there can provide me with feedback/reviews/direction that could help my narrow my shopping cart / ecommerce solution it would be greatly appreciated.
To give you a little background on what our company provides, here is a snippit from our business plan:
"... provide individuals with a unique and innovative avenue to express themselves and their personalities to others through customized, high quality invitations and messages in a bottle."
Thank in advance
