Initially you will enjoy how easy it is to start selling products online.  Opening a store, adding your first product and setting your preferences can be done in under 5 minutes.  From there, our open-source dashboard lets let you take ownership of the store by cutting and pasting your templates, store layouts and emails. A true developer's platform Ghostcart even lets administrators load PHP and CSS for formatting, tax, shipping and post transaction events.

As you are building our your online store, we handle two of biggest hassles in e-commerce that very few shopping cart software companies like to
talk about:

  • Establishing a merchant account that allows you to accept credit cards and have the money deposited directly into your bank account.
  • Establishing a gateway account that facilitates communication between your shopping cart and your merchant account. Think of a gateway as a virtual credit card machine. 

The beauty of the Ghostcart e-commerce platform is that the merchant account, gateway and shopping cart are all pre-integrated.  No configuration is required on your end.  One might think that all this convenience will end up breaking the bank.  Not so with Ghostcart!
