5 - osCommerceosCommerce is one of the most popular open source shopping carts available online (although not the most popular, as we'll see later). Built by a team of self professed geeks, this popular eCommerce platform has been running for over 12 years. In that time, hundreds of thousands of online stores have been created and various other products (including one that will feature further down in this list) have been based on the software.The platform has enough features enabled by default for it to provide a complete "out of the box" solution, but osCommerce can also be enhanced and has a huge number of add-ons available. osCommerce is well regarded for being simple to implement for users setting up a fairly basic shopping cart, although it's perhaps a little more difficult to modify the design and appearance of the cart than some of the other available platforms.The image below shows osCommerce in action. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Ubuntu would implement an open source eCommerce platform, and sure enough, they've gone for osCommerce.
