    Default Has it really been four years!

    So, here I am again.

    Yep, looking through my archives it looks likes I first took an interest on oscommerce some four years ago. You'd think by now I'd be a bit of an expert! Alas, I am a noob through and through.

    Even after all these years I've never actually put osC into action!

    Well this is finally about to change. I have a project that will need an e-commerce solution and as I've always known, osC can do the job.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better.

    ...go gentle with me

    Mike

    Welcome back then, I had also tested OSC a few times over the last few years, but never got to implement it until a couple months ago.

    After checking out the alternatives I had, I gave OSCMAX a try and I am sticking with it. There were quite a few contributions I needed on my installation and OSCMAX saved me quite a bit of time compared to the current plain OSC.

    After customizing it a little bit, I am now going on vacation and I hope to open my e-shop when I come back

    Thanks. Things haven't half changed since I've been gone

    Although I'm going to install both before I make a final decision, I figured I probably would end up using OsCMax.

    Try and compare. I did too, and OSCMAX already came preinstalled with some of the modules I wanted and would have installed myself anyway (and many more), and that saved me a lot of time:

    Separate Pricing Per Customer
    Edit Orders
    Purchase Without Account
    Basic Template Structure
    Gift Voucher/Coupons
    Printable Catalog
    Batch Print Center
    Sales/Tax Reporting
    Ultimate SEO URLs
    ...

    The time I saved integrating everything made me go OSCMAX. If I was to do it today I would probably start with the current development version of OSCMAX instead of 2.0 RC3 from Jan/2007, which is with what I started. I would also have liked trying OSC 3 Alpha, but I needed something finished and stable, and however I end up leaving my shop, it will probably stay that way for a couple of years, so I couldn't wait any more.
