A bundle of features!

Here's a host of great features which make setting up a shopping cart simple and managing orders a breeze.

No product restrictions

You can have as many Buy Now buttons on your website as you like so you can sell as many (or as few) products as you wish. Your products can have as many product options as you need, options can be on any form type: drop down list, radio buttons or even a text box. The only limitation is your imagination!

Accept credit cards online

The free cart supports payments via PayPal, Braintree, Nochex, Skrill and Paymate. We do not process cards ourselves.

Upgrade to Premium and you can hook up the cart directly to your merchant account via one of the payment gateways we support.

Recruit affiliates

One of the best ways to increase sales is to recruit other websites to send you customers. mTracker is a free affiliate program built into the cart which provides the basic functionality required to log click-through from those websites and calculate their commission.

Third Party addons

Several of our members of our community have written scripts or provide services that extend the built-in features of the shopping cart. Some of them are free and others cost a little money.

Gift and discount coupons

Gift certificates and discount vouchers 
are great way to improve customer loyalty. Rewarding loyal customers and encouraging repeat business by issuing discount vouchers has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to 
increase sales.

Charity/Donate buttons

Charities are an important part of the Mal's e-commerce community, they can setup a Donate button where someone can enter the amount they want to donate.
