PHP e-commerce solution eShox was recently upgraded to version 3.7. The new edition includes improved integration with QuickBooks, support for new payment and shipping options, including real-time FedEx quotes, and more.
eShox employs UNIX underpinnings and is compatible with WebSTAR V and Apache Web server software, as well as Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server; it can be hosted on almost any server that can run PHP and MySQL. It includes a variety of pre-built themes and templates that are available in several languages, including Mexican Spanish, French, and German, and you can administer it from any Web browser.
The software also provides 16 breakdowns of real-time statistics viewable as line graphs or pie charts, import and export capability with FileMaker Pro and other database applications, back-up and restore functions, a variety of product hierarchy layouts, customizable HTML-based e-mails, payment processing through 15 gateways that include PayPal, Bank of America eStores, and Verisign Payflow Link, and more.
eShox requires a full-time Internet connection with a static IP address, a domain name and DNS set-up, and a Power Mac G3, iMac, or newer computer running Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server v.10.2. If you don’t want to run it on a Mac, you can use any Web server running Apache or WebSTAR with PHP 4.3 and MySQL 4 or higher.
