Configure custom shipping rules, tax rules and coupons from a wizard. Use eCart on unlimited sites to sell physical goods, digital goods or services - or to accept donations.

Use a wizard to design your shopping cart in Dreamweaver with ease. Select from many design presets and even save your own presets. Use the built-in Color Manager to easily change colors used in the cart or use the Color Suggestions for new ideas. You can even import an image or web page that you are inspired by and use the color picker to define your cart's colors.
Create traditional read-only and updateable carts - or create quick carts and email-friendly carts for other pages in your site. The updateable cart design includes quantity fields, making updating orders straight-forward. The read-only cart can be used to simply display a purchase confirmation, where no additional modifications can be made from the cart. The quick cart design allows you to display the status of the cart anywhere on your site. The email-friendly cart is designed with minimal styling, making it compatible with most email clients. Finally, you can even build a shopping cart that doesn't require online payment.
eCart creates all the necessary pages for your checkout process, in addition to your shopping cart. These include:
The pages come complete with labels and form fields. All forms use CSS layouts so you can customize the design or even use your own Dreamweaver template.
eCart provides real-time shipping quotes from these world-class shipping services: DHL, UPS, USPS, FedEx, Canada Post and Australia Post. You can use multiple providers in combination and configure rules based on the shipping quotes. The easy rules interface also lets you configure custom tax rules. Use any of these rule triggers to create your own custom rules:
Offering discounts on your website can increase conversion, but building such a system can be incredibly overwhelming. With eCart, it's easy. Configure promotions based on any of these rule triggers:
eCart will create your add to cart, view cart and update cart buttons. With the wizard, you can choose button presets and pick the language your buttons should be generated in: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Or you can specify your own custom buttons. If you want to use the add to cart, view cart and update cart functions without buttons, eCart offers server behaviors you can utilize to apply these functions.
You can choose to build a static or a dynamic cart with eCart. Static carts do not require your products to be database-driven.
If you want your cart database-driven, you can choose whether to have eCart automatically create the database tables for storing your order information. This will save you time and ensure that your database has everything needed.
It’s easy as pie to install an extension in the Adobe Extension Manager, but we have a installation video that will make you a pro, even if you have never installed an extension.
All HTML, CSS and PHP code that WebAssist extensions output is completely accessible for further modification and customization.
eCart can be modified to tie into other payment gateways and shipping providers; however, you will need to be comfortable hand coding a connection to your desired third party as WebAssist only supports those listed.
The eCart wizard allows you to select dollars, euros, pounds, francs, or yen from the default list - or you can specify your own symbol in the custom currency field.
