What are the advantages of a web-based shopping cart program?

Advantages of an Online Shopping Cart Program

The advantages of purchasing a web-based shopping cart program vs. locally hosted software include the following:

* Quick set-up: Web-based shopping carts are built with point-and-click interfaces and almost always do not require specific IT training to set up and manage.

* Low upfront investment: Most web-based shopping carts have a very low set-up fee and charge monthly rates, as well as per-transaction fees. So an online shopping cart program can be much less expensive to set up.

* Integrated product database: Most web-based shopping carts offer integrated product databases. Simply load your products, SKUs and pricing into the database and it's ready to go.
