OSCommerce Self–Hosted

This package is ideal if you have an existing website. It allows you to add Ecommerce functionality as well as giving you access to database collation of stock and customer details (this depends on your hosting company being able to supply a mySQL database that can run with PHP5). We can install and adapt your OSCommerce website so you keep the original look and feel of your existing website. We will also transfer any information you currently hold on your website at no further charge.

If you don't have an existing website but still wish to use the self-hosting package we are happy to create a custom design for your OSCommerce website and add up to 5 alternative pages of information.

Rather than just installing the core modules of OSCommerce on our packages for our customers we have evaluated the core modules of OSCommerce and added some of the extensions developed by the online community. These include:

  • A HTML editor   ::   or CMS (Content Management System) allowing you to edit your content on all pages
  • Royal Mail Postage   ::   A database of Royal Mail Charges for packages sent in the UK
  • Extra pages of information linked to the CMS (Content Management System)
The basic package for self-hosters is listed below, please hover over each item to for more details (if you don't have javascript enabled please click here (opens new window) for a glossary of terms used). You can easily adapt this package by adding extras from the list further down this page.

Ecommerce Lite Solution

Our Ecommerce Lite package combines one of our website packages with either a basic Ecommerce shop or a javascript Ecommerce shop to give you a cheap Ecommerce solution for your business. Alternatively, you can add Ecommerce Lite to an existing website without having to upgrade your hosting. Ecommerce Lite has been developed around Paypal's payment gateway. However, if you wish to use a different gateway (for example: worldpay, nochex, or your bank) our javascript basket can be used with your chosen payment gateway.

The benefits of Ecommerce Lite mean your website isn't dependant on having a database. The main benefit to not using a database is in the cost. Database functionality is worth while if you want to run an online shop as your main business, however, if you just want to try Ecommerce before investing heavily in it, Ecommerce Lite is for you.

Our basic Ecommerce solution uses Paypal's online services to set up a shopping basket and payment gateway. This is the most economic Ecommerce solution you can use, giving you a chance to try Ecommerce before committing to a more advanced Ecommerce solution.

Our javascript Ecommerce solution uses your user's browser to hold information about their order until they are ready to check out. This means that instead of your user navigating to Paypal each time they order a product, they stay on your website until they have a full list of what they want to order. Your website will then use Paypal's payment gateway to process the user's payment to your account.

Ecommerce Lite CombinationsPrice
Add our basic Ecommerce Lite to an Existing Website £60 for up to 20 products and £30 per 20 products thereafter.
Add our Javascript Ecommerce Lite to an Existing Website £80 for up to 20 products and £40 per 20 products thereafter.
Add basic Ecommerce Lite to our Small Business Package Prices start from £255 for up to twenty products.
Add basic Ecommerce Lite to our Large Business Package Prices start from £355 for up to twenty products.
Add Advanced Ecommerce Lite to our Small Business Package Prices start from £275 for up to twenty products.
Add Advanced Ecommerce Lite to our Large Business Package Prices start from £375 for up to twenty products.
Use our product updating service for your Ecommerce website £15 per hour to update your website content including product information. Alternatively, you can sign up to our monthly plan of £30 per month, which entitles you to unlimited updates.
