SQL Shopping Cart:

Our PRO shopping cart does it all. Includes customer accounts, with support for multiple shipping addresses. Uses a MySQL database for storage of information so you can support hundreds of thousands of products.

This cart is LOADED with features, and it is specifically designed to be expandable with even more features as they are needed. This cart is designed primarly to run your entire site as oposed to being an add-on to an existing site. Also many of the features can be resource intensive because of all the SQL queries that are executed. This is important because if you are on a shared server there is the possibility that if your site is busy your web host could end up shutting you down for using up too much of your server resources. So far this has never happened because the sites running this cart are either on a semi dedicated server, or only have a small amount of traffic.
