Hybrid Ecommerce
August 16, 2022
osCommerce brings a new type of Ecommerce platform to the market - a so called Hybrid Ecommerce. So what is Hybrid Ecommerce? We see it to be the best of both worlds - an open source (and free) Ecommerce solution that is also hosted as if it was SaaS (or EaaS - Ecommerce as a Service). This means users (businesses and developers) do not need to worry about hosting requirements and at the same time have full access to the source code and can change or implement any custom features, integrations, etc. Of course, it is always possible to host osCommerce on your own server! It is just so much easier (and quite likely more cost effective!) to use osCommerce's own hosting solutions.  Hybrid Ecommerce from osCommerce Users can choose to have osCommerce installed for free on one of our servers to try osCommerce before use.  Once satisfied with its features, speed, robustness - they can choose to move to a paid osCommerce hosting account or to download and use osCommerce site on their own server. Move to an osCommerce-managed server is done automatically. Server environment is optimised for osCommerce, allowing it to give the best performance. It is also managed and upgraded with the latest server software. Most importantly, osCommerce installation can be automatically updated to the latest version of osCommerce (and Applications) as well. Any customisations, done right, will stay but all the standard modules and the core of osCommerce will be regularly updated, bringing fixes, changes, new features. Full FTP and mySQL access are offered to businesses and developers should they require such.   ...

Contributions Added/Updated In The Last 3 Days

osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 1 Released

osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 1 was finally released after a short delay - congratulations to the team for all the hard work, and to the community for the ever lasting support.

More information on the release can be read here:


Updates To The Redirection Logic

An update was made to the tep_redirect() function to make redirections in an SSL state when the current page is in an SSL state.

This avoids the browser prompting the customer to continue in a non-SSL state due to the sudden redirection occuring.

Navigation History Update

A new method was added to the navigation history class, which removes the current page from the navigation history stack.

This is used in pop-up windows to avoid certain "Continue" buttons throughout the catalog to return to the pop-up window last visited.

Virtual Products Update

A bug was fixed when only virtual products were being ordered, with no tax being applied to the order due to no shipping address existing.

The tax is now calculated with the billing address when only virtual products are ordered.

Security Proposal Realization

The security proposal written in the Developers forum is now being realized for the Milestone 2 release.

Some code was added to the discussion thread for people to apply to their test stores, to test the implementation and to report back on the results.

The more feedback gathered from the results, the better and stronger the implementation can be realized. The sooner this occurs, the sooner the implementation can be commited to CVS.

The time spent on this is appreciated.

Instructions for implementing the code can be read here:


I'm A Believer

No doubt those active in the community forums would have noticed a phenomenon occuring during the the past week, with the word "Believer" appearing on member profiles.

The surprise move of assigning the word to those active in the forums was received much better than expected, and had sparked the creation of a song titled "I'm an osC'er" from the classic song "I'm a Believer".

The word "Believer" is a rank assigned to member profiles who have posted 300 or more messages in the community forums. The move to assign ranks is our way of saying thanks to those active on the community forums, for not only helping others out but also keeping the community spirit alive.

As the introduction of the ranking system has been a success, other ranks will be added but which and when that occurs will be a surprise ;)

The "I'm a Believer" discussion can be read here:


[Please note the discussion is all fun and nothing serious]
