    Anyone have any experience or advice for the best free online shopping cart / catalogue?

    My hoster offers:
    Cube Cart
    OS Commerce
    Zen cart



    All I need is something to receive funds via paypal or an email with the order details.

    Something a user could update prices etc.

    Many thanks

    os commerce is the old soldier, got all the knobs & twiddly bits but hard to customise and based on old architecture

    zen cart is an offshoot, but better for that.

    cube cart is the most progressive in supporting xhtml & css.

    Toss up between the last 2 depending on what you want it for.

    Personally I use OScommerce myself but sometimes the modules can cancel others out if your not careful.

    I need a new shopping cart for another sales project, tempted to stick with OS but if I could find a good template then I would have anything really as its only for about 67 products.

    If your using paypal there is mals commerce or something like that, that is or was free, nice and easy to use its basic but if its for domains then it might be better rather than having something with all the bells and whistles.

    The design is the main thing really for most of the shopping carts.

    I've used both zencart and cubecart.

    zencart is the complete solution that does just about everything.

    cubecart is a lot more basic in terms of functionality, especially the admin, but it's a lot easier to use.

    I'm also working on a project with joomla and virtuemart which seems to be a good combination if you want a web site as well.

    I'd say they're all too bloated for what you need (from the sounds of it)....but of the above, cubecart would be the best for your needs.
