What is a no-install shopping cart? It's a cart that allows you to use a web interface to quickly install your goods into the cart and has modules for taxes, shipping and other specific online merchant needs. The idea is that you do not have to install the software on your system. Instead, it usually lives on a server hosted by the provider and integrates with your web site. But it's still going to take some work to get your site up and running. Expect to spend a few hours getting all your information onto the site through the web interface. So no-install really means "easy install." But it's still the best alternative for anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of time messing around the software integration.
