I wonder if you have more live stores that you can show me?
I need to prepare a proposal for a new client who needs an e-commerce site, and I was comparing a few options to be included in the proposal. The foxycart kept coming up on the top despite that it costs $15 a month. Most of my end-clients (I work as a subcontractor most of the time) are small struggled business and on the cheap side unfortunately, always want something free. I actually begun to blame this myself because I was the one looking for open source free solution for them all the time. With this new one, I think I am going to take different approach, and 'educate' my client that good thing with excellent support don't come free and having an e-commerce website means monthly expenses involved.
The client sells cellphone and he needs the cart to have the products comparison. I aware that with Modx's Ditto and Tvs, many features are possible, however my experience is that, when trying to convince clients for something, a picture/example beats thousand words.
by the way, just a thought, the foxycart features you listed speak to web designers and developers, but it probably won't do the job for many business owners who want e-commerce websites; and the demo shopping cart a bit bare-bone for non-web developer - I sent two friends to look at your carts, their feedback was very similar: "I don't see many features I wanted from the demo cart". While you guy praise how wonderful your software is, these people I sent to your site told me 'can't even match with zencart, e-commerce etc...'
I am not a marketing person and very bad at it, therefor I don't have any suggestion what better content should be worded or what demo cart feature should be included. On one hand it's web designer's job to convince his client why he recommends such and such software and features for her important e-commerce site, but the decision is always on client's hand. Giving us something that allows us easily to convince to our important clients why your software is better than others, will help your business, our business and our clients' businesses I think:)
