osCommerce is an online-based Open Source e-commerce solution that is available for free under the GNU General Public License. It was started in March 2000 in Germany by project founder and leader Harald Ponce de Leon as The Exchange Project. It can be used on any web server that has PHP and MySQL installed.

osCommerce features a rich set of out-of-the-box online shopping cart functionality that allows store owners to setup, run, and maintain their online stores with minimum effort and with no costs, fees, or limitations involved. While officially osCommerce is still in its development stage, the current Milestone 2.2 release is considered stable. As of November 2007 the osCommerce site says that there are over 12,000 'live' websites using the program.

Ecommerce shopping cart as opposed to the real shopping cart is not just about accumulating the stuff that one wants to buy. It transcends that petty objective partly because of the fact that it is virtual. Apart from the fact it helps people in selecting the goods they want to buy; it also attends to other objectives like calculating the total amount payable, making the task of keeping track of the customers and the goods sold for the owner etc. Actually it won’t be wrong to say that the ecommerce shopping cart is the backbone of every ecommerce web site.
