osCommerce is an open-source e-commerce platform for online store management. The platform was founded in March 2000 by Harald Ponce de Leon and has since been actively maintained and developed by the open-source community. It features a wide range of out-of-the-box functions that allow users to setup an online store with ease, including support for various payment gateways and shipping methods, along with customizable templates allowing for easy design modification. OsCommerce is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database backend for data storage. The platform provides a large number of third-party add-ons through its marketplace that enable the integration of more complex features, enabling merchants to tailor their shopping experiences to their individual needs.
