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.   ...

Project Progress

Two things occurred in August which explains the reason for the current lack of progress occurring.

The first is an internal reorganization of how the team works together, to better handle the growing community and to maximize the resources available to increase the amount of productivity occurring.

This month will be used to fine tune the changes made internally, to make sure the progress in October and the coming months does not decline as the previous months have shown.

The second is a another project being worked on that will contemplate osCommerce. More information will be provided later this month - it is just being quickly announced now to show that although progress may seem lacking on the outside, it is actually erupting in the inside :)

On a sad note, Ian Wilson has had to leave the project due to other priorities. On behalf of the team and community, thanks again for the effort you contributed to the project, and hope to see you again in the near future!

Forum Migration Plan

As the community is growing every month, the forum solution currently being used will be switched to another solution to give moderators more power in doing their job of keeping the forums in a sane state.

The forums will be taken offline this Sunday on the 14th of September, when the migration procedure will occur. The expected downtime will be 5 hours.

Inclusion in the PHP Québec DVD Set

osCommerce will be included in the PHP Québec DVD set, a double DVD set containing videos and slides from the conference, and PHP applications included in a separate CD-Rom disc.

More information about the conference and DVD set can be found at:
