If my web control panel includes shopping cart control software, do I still need to buy shopping cart software?

Shopping cart control software

Some ecommerce oriented control panel software includes basic shopping cart software, which can be fine for limited ecommerce use. You will still need to have a merchant account to collect credit card income and a payment gateway to communicate between your shopping cart control software and the merchant account. Your web site control panel might include other useful scripts as well, such as forums, guestbook scripts, and chat software. Make a point to explore what your web site control panel offers you before assuming you need to buy a stand-alone package for these additional functions.
