Funnelator – What Kind of Shopping Cart Should You Buy


Selecting your shopping cart is a big decision.  Carts come in two forms:

  • Hosted
  • Open source

Whether to use a hosted cart or open source shopping cart is a big decision. The benefits of each are the following:


  • Quick.
  • Low upfront cost.
  • No security headaches and limited fraud liability.
  • Regular updates.

Open Source

  • Customization is easy.
  • Lower long term costs.
  • Updates are determined by you.
