    I loved the UltraCart II .. I don't think the developer is developing any
    longer however. But it was great for ASP/VB and didn't dictate your
    design. Interakt is out of business because Adobe bought their company and
    their shopping solutions were discontinued. I have heard both good and bad
    about Cartweaver .. and not much about WA eCart. If there is a trial for
    either, try them out. Both have some solid names behind the development, so
    you should be able to get some answers by contacting the companies.

    I have been had by WebAssist before when buying the eCart when it first came
    out. I had hoped that I bought a full extension with an fully functional
    administration panel and database. I soon found out that it did not. No instead
    they tried to lure me in buying additional components to even make the
    extension do exactly what a 35 pound Sterling application by Julian Roberts
    would do for way less.

    Now that has been 2,5 year ago when buying last from WebAssist. Now I wonder
    if they really are doing a better job than they did then. Back then their eCart
    I would consider a true scam. ... How is it today I wonder? What experiences
    are their about this company?

    As for Joseph Scavitto's UCII .. It seems to offer exactly what my needs are..
    but how about development? Joseph seems to be more busy with this core business
    than with developing the UCII even further or am I wrong?

    Right now I have made a shortlist of extension(suites) that I am willing to
    consider.. But I can buy only one.

    1. UCII - ASP/VB
    2. Shopping Cart by Gianluigi of [url]http://www.dwzone-it.com/[/url]
    3. WebAssist eCommerce Suite

    The one thing WA seems to have in favor of the other two is that is allows you
    to build a cart on a PHP and ASP platform.

    I need more input.

    I haven't talked to Joe in a long time .. we used to be good friends. I
    don't think he's doing much in the way of development any more, or at least
    doesn't hang around the communities any more. I'll have to drop him a line
    and see what's up. I like his cart because it provides basic
    functionality without taking over the site.

    You appear to have crossed Cartweaver off the list. There is a version for
    ASP and one for PHP as well as Cold Fusion, thanks to the involvement of Tom
    Muck in the programming. That fact alone would give me hope .. he's very
    good.

    As does Cartweaver.

    Dear Nancy

    I must say that I have not included Tom's Cartweaver because the way I see it
    it has not more to offer than Joseph UCII, Gianluigi's Shopping Cart (Revellog)
    [url]http://www.dwzone-it.com/[/url]. And Tom's Cartweaver is at 250 USD not very
    competitive compared to Shopping Cart (95,00 USD) and UC II ((99,99 USD).

    I am not a full-fledged coder but a designer who happens to know his way
    around ASP code and managing a MS SQL Server database.

    Quite frankly I wish Joseph, Julian Roberts, Gianluigi and they people from
    Cartweaver would work together instead of coming out with a separate e-cart. I
    need a e-Commerce solution for my company. We manufacture and sell sports
    nutrition and distribute raw materials for the nutritional industry. SalesCart
    I think to hard to incorperate in my current design -
    [url]http://www.pasioingredients.com[/url]. I do not need an full enterprise e-commerce
    system which requires help to customize but something I can do my self with all
    of the features that Joseph's Cart and Gianluigi have to offer.

    But I need to be quick. I have seen Webassists is offering a complete bundel
    for the same price Cartweaver is offering their scaled down shopping cart.

    Kind regards

    Anthony..

    I have most of the extensions from webassist, the ecart I have had over the
    last few years, always trying to get my head around it. I still had issues,
    but then that was just down to me not been too clever, and marginally down
    to poss the doentation that came with it. any way, that didnt stop me
    from purchasing all the other extensions indivually from webassist.

    I see they have just created a better kinda minity support system, with
    fourms just like these. and I am very excited about it lol. so prior to
    purchase you could go there and ask as many questions that you need to
    qualify your purchase.

    as for InterPhakt and Interakts Kart extension, even thought I know of it
    I never used it as I am an ASP/VB person and they only had it as PHP.
    Interakt had brilliant support and following (I had all Interakt extensions)
    I see now why it was purchased by Adobe, I have no idea as to the future of
    Interakt at the moment.

    your comment " help me build solid web-shop applications " , have you
    asked yourself as to how much help you would want, and what or how much of a
    shop you wish to create, are you selling single products or are you trying
    to create an entire back end to insert other products dynamically at a
    later date.

    Sounds great Dave but I really wanted to be sure before I buy. I am not a full
    fledged coder. I just happen to know my way around ASP and a MS SQL Server
    database and of course Dreamweaver.

    I current project would be with or without the tools of webassist to upgrade
    our current store. [url]www.pasioingredients.com[/url]
    .. it now has a back end based on the Charon Cart and build with extensions
    from various developers like Julian Roberts, Tom Muck, George Petrov and others.

    Why not use CharonCart or do you need more functionality ?

    before I moved over to PHP I used CharonCart on a couple of sites one of
    which ([url]www.rallyartmotorsportprints.com[/url]) is still happily running taking
    orders after nearly 3 years

    Dave

    Quite frankly we need more than the Charon Cart can offer us. But I will stick
    to MS SQL Server and ASP. ... I not into PHP.. but we use a PHPBB forum on the
    same server as a standard support forum for our customers.

    We want to be able to give a discount starting for orders more than ? 50 and
    for certain customers only and set for certain products only. Also we want to
    give our customers the choice in shipping via TNT Normal and Express shipping
    based on actual weight rather than a flat fee that is too high for certain
    destinations and too low for certain destinations.

    So we want to expand the current adminsection and functionality of the shop
    build with Charon Cart in the first place.

    OK I understand.

    There is post on the new WebAssist forums regarding putting something
    together along the lines of the discount facility that you are looking for
    here
    http://www.webassist.com:8119/readmessage?id=%3C7dcf523f$5aacedb2$1354www.webas sist.com:8119%3E&group=eCommerce
    that you might want to have a look at.

    The shipping is certainly possible as I have implemented something similar
    on the site I am currently finishing for a client but it will require some
    hand coding outside of the cart object to check postcodes etc for the
    shipping zones that have surcharges.
