I need to get a e-commerce site up and running, but I really don't want to program it from the bottom up if I don't need to. I want to program it using ASP.NET MVC.

I'm looking for a good open source alternative (or one for purchase if it's modular enough) that I can use as a base and enhance with the needed functions?

It has to have all "normal" e-commerce functions, and also the possibility to integrate with a credit card API of my choice.

If anyone have any recommendations for me here, I would appreciate it :)

Right off the bat you can download and try out The BeerHouse CMS and e-comm project from CodePlex. This is an asp.net MVC based application with e-commerce areas setup and should be able to be wired up to most payment gateways. In addition, it's been around for a while, and has two books which walk through most of the code, design considerations, and it's solutions.

Good luck on your project, and hope this helps some.


An other one you could give a go is Suteki Shop which is done with NHibernate.
