Drupal? Übercart? Sounds expensive!
If you haven’t heard of Drupal(drupal.org) or Übercart(ubercart.org)before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise: Both are free, open-source software created andmaintained by volunteers.Together they power hundreds of e-commerce sites —including our own, attopnotchthemes.com.Übercart lets you sell products of all kinds, including file downloads such as e-books and software; siteaccess for members-only websites; and, of course, physical products. Properly configured, it calculatesshipping, prints invoices, adds tax when needed, tracks stock levels, and lets you discount products inflexible and complex ways.And because it’s integrated with Drupal, your customers can automaticallybecome site members, opening up a world of possibilities for online interaction — and improvingcustomer engagement and retention.
