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.   ...

osCommerce proudly developed in the UK and Ukraine
July 27, 2022
As many readers would know, osCommerce is headquartered from the UK but the majority of our team members are in Ukraine. Same as it was for Magento btw, and for many other amazing technological solutions. What many readers perhaps do not realize is that osCommerce continues to be developed while the war is raging in Ukraine.  For example, the final touches to version 4 were made in the evening, while air raid sirens were wailing in many locations in Ukraine where our colleagues are located. We would like to once again express our appreciation and applaud the strong spirit of our colleagues who managed to complete their task (be it with a delay) and release osCommerce 4.0! Those men and women who continue to work hard on adding more features, enabling the App Shop, fixing those teething problems that users of osCommerce report to us. We are working hard to release more features and solutions, and will be updating you in due course! ...
