            Great product!
            This is a very stable product that performs exactly as advertised.
            Marco Pratesi went above and beyond the call of duty to help me troubleshoot my site. Turned out to be entirely my fault, but he worked with me for quite some time to troubleshoot it.

            I am looking forward to exploring more of the features. So far, it looks like exactly what I needed!

            Thanks!

            Thank you :-)

            If you want to customize the code and/or extend its features, sure: it is not for non programmers (even though IMHO it is not difficult to customize it for a non expert PHP programmer).

            Sorry, the reply is rather long :-)

            First of all, I live in Italy. I have written the interface for a payment gateway widely used in Italy; I have not published the code simply because
            i) it would be rather unuseful outside of Italy
            ii) it already exists an open source PHP class providing the same features for the same payment gateway, and it's actively maintained... I suppose that final users prefer to rely on that class... and I prefer to avoid duplication of efforts, hence, if I need this feature, I prefer to use that class.

            I do not agree about non existence of hints... even though the corresponding manual section is still to be written, the involved variables are managed in the cart class, and the code of that class is documented in detail according to the PHPDocumentor syntax (i.e. you can easily generate the HTML documentation and browse it); furthermore, just read a bit the code of the complete order script for what concerns the credit card payment... it seems to me that it's rather easy to customize it a bit to put cart values into the corresponding form...

            > No forums exist.

            It is on sourceforge. However, it seems that people prefers to directly contact me by e-mail... I receive a considerable amount of e-mails about this project :-)

            I'm not joking at all :-)
            Please also consider that in Italy almost all people still prefer not to resort to credit card payment... hence I am not so much encouraged to work on this issue, and hence other issues have higher priority, such as the ones documented in the current changelog and, alas, the compatibility with the ms windows environment (BTW, the forthcoming version 2.2.0 should be completely compatible with ms windows and iis, even though the mswin environment will very likely remain officially unsupported).

            I have not written anywhere that pgmarket bundles interfacing with a payment gateway...

            > I don't think I have
            > ever come across a cart without any kind

            Are you sure???

            > still, when this all

            In the future there could be interesting news...

            Moreover, everyone that wants to provide interfacing of the package with payment gateways is welcome, it's an open project.

            No Code for Payment Gateways or Credit Cards
            this has a lot of potential, at the moment it is not a solution for non programmers, as it has no code for payment gateways, you have to include your own form for this, and no hints exist in the documentation as to how to relate cart totals to anything like paypal, worldpay etc. No forums exist. This is a bit like having a nice car without wheels or an engine. At first I thought they were joking.

            I spent a few wasted hours on this, it would be nice if they would inform people of this before they download and waste many hours. I don't think I have ever come across a cart without any kind of payment gateway, still, when this all important feature is added this will be a very good open source cart..
