Here's someone who used DrewBytes Shopping Cart Software!

Bodybuild Australia:
"I had done extensive research on shopping cart software, with every product I tested something always was missing. I was in a great dilemma trying to find the right software that would suit me, within a limited budget, and something I could manipulate myself with limited technical knowledge.

Most of the shopping applications which I tested were not only expensive. They were hard to use and implement, and you needed to have programming skills to set them up. I didn't have time nor the patience for that.
It was only until I found DrewBytes Shopping application things started to get moving. The support is the best I have ever come across, with step by step instructions from the tech support and easy installation of the software. My business went from no orders to a full on shopping cart system that can accept an amazing amount of difficult tasks all within it's stride, with all the features and more you would get from software that would cost thousands. It makes e-commerce a walk in the park! I would recommend DrewBytes Software package to anyone who is serious about implementing a shopping system which is fast, reliable and accurate."- Jason Peters

Just like shopping at the supermarket

The shopping cart analogy is used for the DrewBytes Shopping Cart Software because shoppers are familiar with the idea of moving from aisle to aisle in supermarket (or screen to screen on a website), adding items to their shopping cart or trolley, and heading for the checkout to pay.

When purchasers visit your site to buy:

  • they want to be able to find out where to buy your products quickly
  • the site to be fast to use so they can buy your products quickly
  • the software to be unobtrusive (ie so they don't have to learn anything new to buy something from you)
  • the software to be smart enough to collate and total their order
  • they want to be confident your site is safe and secure so they can provide their credit card details with confidence.
  • they want to be confident their order will be fulfilled.

DrewBytes Shopping Cart Software provides all these features to help make your purchasers visits to your site turn into a visit that makes you a sale.

DrewBytes Shopping Cart Software works in exactly the same way as a real life shopping experience.

Add products to the online shopping cart

Your site users look at the products, add them to their shopping cart. The software tracks the collection of items in the shopping cart, adds up the number of items and the total cost and then processes the sale using a secure online order form.

Here are some more satisfied users:

"We were in need of a quick solution for a large-scale e-commerce project that we were working on for our client. However, we were using MySQL on Linux and had trouble finding such a nicely finished commercial product - the front-end visual interface of which could be replaced by our own. We decided to purchase DrewBytes software and convert the database from Access to MySQL and convert the CF code for use on CF for Linux with MySQL. DrewBytes was there the entire time and supported us through the mammoth project of conversion. They even created other sections that our client required - tying them into the original database. The support was timely and expedient, and most importantly, invaluable. We HIGHLY recommend DrewBytes to anyone looking for such a solution." - Brian
