PHP Shopping Cart Software

Squirrelcart PHP Shopping Cart software is a fully customizable, feature-rich PHP shopping cart, designed with both web designers and web novices in mind.

Easy to use

If you are a web novice, you will find it easy to use. Squirrelcart generates the HTML for your entire store, without you having to be a web guru.

Make your store look unique using the built-in style options, or an add-on theme.

Customizable templates and CSS stylesheets

If you have web design skills, you can make your store match any design you can come up with, by modifying our templates and CSS files.

You don't have to be a PHP developer to use our software but if you are, you have full access to our unencrypted source code.

Why Squirrelcart?

If you are looking for the best shopping cart software on the market, you've come to the right place. There are many shopping cart applications out there, and making a choice between them can be overwhelming. Comparing features of e-commerce applications can be tiring. You can put all that behind you, as we are confident that we can help you succeed.

It's not JUST about features

Most carts have the same basic features you would expect - order management, shipping, taxes, payment gateway support, etc...

We have all the features you would expect, along with many innovative additions you won't find in other carts. We've spent the last 22 years packing Squirrelcart with an incredible number of features, and are constantly adding new ones.

Timely support from developers

We are committed to providing excellent support. If you are not happy, it hurts our business. If you are happy, you'll spread the word.

Our support is not limited by a point based system like some of our competitors. Ask as many questions as you like, and they'll get answered.

The majority of support issues are handled by the owner and developer of Squirrelcart. When you request support, you are dealing with someone that knows Squirrelcart inside and out.

Made in the U.S.A.

Squirrelcart is proud to be made and supported completely in the U.S.A.

While many of our customers are in the U.S. and Canada, we have many happy customers worldwide and offer features with them in mind. This includes support for VAT in the European Union, Australia Post in Australia, etc..


The price of some of our competitors software can make your wallet cringe. They are trying to equate higher prices with higher quality but you are smarter than that. You don't need to spend a lot of money to get a high quality product.

You shouldn't have to get a second job or dip into Suzie's college fund to pay for your shopping cart. We price our software lower than comparable carts on purpose, to save you money. We offer reasonable pricing with no recurring charges.

Real, Unsolicited, Customer Testimonials

My wife and I have decided to start an on-line art supplies site. This is, for us a very large project and I spent several hours on the web looking for a suitable cart to power it. The freebies were not up to the job and the the others were way above what we were able to pay. Then along came Squirrelcart and Jamie!! He patiently answered all my daft questions, did a perfect installation and held my hand through my initial mistakes.

I am now at a point where I can almost believe anything of Squirrelcart. Whenever the question "Can it do this?" has been asked the answer has always been "yes". This is a program that deserves to be along side the very best in its class and the support is second to none.


See What Others are Saying...

When it came time to replace a $30K ASP site, we found Squirrelcart a huge bargain and a much better product. Jamie (lead developer) handled some customization for us and we are loving it!

Customizing the graphics and content is a breeze.

Jamie's response to questions and issues is beyond superlatives. You can tell he really cares yet still wants to make things affordable!

Our sales numbers stayed steady during the transition and have continued to rise since roll out.
