    Hi,

    I am looking for a shopping cart that allows us to 'Hire' products rather than sell them.

    Can anyone recommend a solution or maybe a plugin for some eCommerce software we can use?

    I am looking forward to your replies.

    Regards,
    Richard

    Is it not just a matter of making sure that the description against items and any T&Cs refer to a rental period rather than ownership of a product? i.e. "you are buying 12 months rental of xxxx."

    What kind of differences would you think a cart needs to handle rental items? I suppose something to check available dates (if we are talking short term hire) would be helpful - think of how holiday companies do it.
