Easy to use

I believe that this shopping cart is the absolute best value on the market. It's really a surprise that these guys are selling it for such a low price as this software is a good all-around product. The admin control is easy to learn, I just spent some 30 mins to get a overall grip on it. I have setup up my handicraft online shop and I am happy to recommend this software.
