osCommerce as a mainstream Ecommerce solution

Looking back at 2000, osCommerce was on the rise. It was THE shopping cart to have, and the community of both merchants and developers was growing at an amazing speed.

Many businesses, organisations, charities would use osCommerce to build their online store.

As time went by, new challengers emerged (like Magento, or Shopify, for example) but osCommerce, instead of being developed and maintained, went in decline. Not the fault of the brilliant code that it was, but rather negligence of the team that created the original software. 

By 2022 most of the websites in what is considered "old osCommerce" - i.e. osCommerce 2.x - require an upgrade, due to the codebase being old and effectively obsolete. The codebase requires older versions of server software, ones that are not supported anymore and are even potentially dangerous to use because of the known vulnerabilities. Such sites in old versions of osCommerce are very difficult to host as hosting providers insist on having modern, safe, and secure server software installed. Effectively, any business using old osCommerce risks seeing their online shop stop working at any time.

New osCommerce, version 4, as a mainstream Ecommerce solution

Here comes NEW osCommerce, version 4! Besides all the exciting features and solutions, it should be noted that osCommerce v4 uses the most up-to-date and modern server software, and can be installed on any modern hosting account.

It is a reliable, flexible, upgradeable Ecommerce platform that can be easily integrated with third-party software. 

Advanced CMS, support for multiple design templates, mobile- and SEO-friendly, with good a range of solutions for stock and warehouse management, sales and marketing, with support for multiple sale channels - it can be used to support any online selling business (B2C and B2B)

osCommerce v4 makes it possible to create simple small websites as well as complex fully integrated Ecommerce systems. It is cheaper to use and develop than its competition (like Adobe Commerce - formerly Magento, or ShopWare), it is easier to upgrade, and it is faster to bring business's ideas to the market. Overall, using osCommerce v4 as an Ecommerce solution allows businesses to save on Ecommerce development costs and still receive reliable featured Ecommerce solutions. It allows Ecommerce developers to offer their clients advanced implementations cheaper and faster, therefore producing more profit, quicker.

osCommerce v4 is an Ecommerce software that is back to being a mainstream Ecommerce solution!
