E-Commerce Solutions - WooCommerce
A current popular shopping cart today is using the WooCommerce platform. It intragrates with WordPress. It can be used as a simple catalogue of shopping cart items (no on-line purchases) or turning on the e-commerce feature to allow the actual purchase of an item.
It works with a variety of online payment gateways and also has the option to use their own custom themes (like WordPress does) for a look and fell to suit your design needs.
If you don't currently use WordPress it's easy to learn and manage. It also allows you to add non-shopping cart pages to your website.
