ROCK SOLID, open source e-commerce

What's the most important aspect of running your business?  How about peace of mind.  SurfShop 2 is an easy to use, yet powerful shopping cart and e-commerce solution that will give you the peace of mind that you want when you need to trust your business on the Internet.

Comes complete with a secure browser-based admin, search engine, optional customer sign-in, gift certificates, unlimited shipping options and calculations, mobile-friendly design - and much more.

Easily customize your look. SurfShop 2 comes with a beautiful new template so you're ready to go "right out of the box". Most other carts use convoluted templates scattered throughout the install that are a nightmare to change.  Not SurfShop – you'll be up and running in no time with these easily customizeable CSS based templates. Use them as-is, or change them to match the look of your website.

Multi-User WebStore Manager Manage everything about your e-commerce shopping cart securely from your web browser with our tabbed interface, including e-mails, layout, orders, customers, products, and categories. Give multiple admins different levels of authority.

The built-in WebStore Manager is a secure online catalog, order tracker and contact manager all in one! It lets you update orders after they've been placed. Image Uploader lets you add pictures to your shopping cart right from your web browser, too!

Option-based, straight, or tiered pricing - perfect for bulk retail or wholesale, while simple enough for smaller resellers, too. You can also have different prices for different customers - retail, wholesale, members, and everyone else.

Import data from your existing database or use static HTML pages. Create a store for 1 item or 1,000,001 items! Template and placeholder system lets you use your own web pages for catalog pages. Customers can order from anywhere on your site.

You can sell digital products with SurfShop, as well as physical items.  Setting up a digital download is as easy as adding a .pld suffix to the item number, and you can offer your customer a download link on the receipt page and/or the auto-generated invoice e-mail.

Again, you're not limited with SurfShop, even when it comes to calculations. Set up your cart the way you run your business, not the other way around! Our powerful calculation system lets you set tax tables for each Country, State – even the City. Set up flexible shipping methods and pricing that suits your company. Differentiate between taxable or non-taxable items. Gift certificates, coupons, and opt-in e-mails keep your customers coming back!

Specials and Coupons - Products may be sold at special pricing for a specific time period and/or featured on all the pages in the cart. Coupons may also be used to provide discounts for orders over a certain amount.

Easy Checkout Process - Your customers will not be forced into setting up an account just to purchase from you. A lot of people just want to check out and be done with it, and SurfShop allows them to do just that.  If they do set up an account, you'll have the option to give them special pricing and/or add them to your mailing list.

Google Maps

SurfShop 2 also includes LightBox code from Lokesh Dhakar.  This code gives you a very nice animated look for the large graphics in your shopping cart.  When you click a photo in your cart, your large image is displayed while graying out the cart page, making for a very nice user experience.
