This section needs a boost, other than the negativity thread. I am finally to the point where instead of trying to figure out how to do something, I know where to go and what to do. And. . . I wonder why it seemed so complicated at first!

As several people have pointed out, VPASP has one heck of a lot of things to fiddle with, but this makes the cart extremely configurable (and I'm sure I've learned to use about half of the possibilities, if that). Of course, a heck of a lot of things to fiddle with can become frustrating for awhile. But once you get the hang of it, and check this forum for advice, the sun starts to shine again.

So, anyone checking in here, considering this particular cart, I can certainly give a Thumbs-Up. My site now looks like it's darn close to 21st century technology (grin), everything works fast, and it's getting better looking (and it does not look like all my other competitive sites, which I think is very important in showing a unique face in the Internet e-commerce crowd). Part of my enthusiasm is also due to Big Yellow Zone's add-ons, which have saved time and streamlined tasks.

I've spent countless hours messing with Agoracart, OCcommerce, Zen-Cart (which is very good, BTW), but for asp and especially if hosted on a Microsoft Server/platform, VPASP is quite fantastic.

Just my opinion.

I agree. After working my way through my first VP-ASP website, I convinced my brother to let me redo his website with VP-ASP that I had done the first time with Miva Merchant. We decided not to change the look of the existing site at all so I needed to fit VP-ASP into that look and it didn't take long at all.

I got his first batch of comments/suggestions and out of his 10 items, I was able to implement 8 of them via the admin in a matter of minutes. The other two were fairly minor code changes. It took a couple weeks to make sure everything was working right but with web hosts changed, different payment gateway, new SSL, etc., I don't think two weeks for all that was too bad.

He has more ideas for improvements but these are going to require VP-ASP code changes and I'd rather wait until the next release comes out before I start digging into the code more. I can't wait until the next release!

Sure! Have not posted my site because it would seem like advertising, and that's not the point of this forum. But, if you'd like to see the layout:

Anything unfamiliar is frustrating for a while. I know I went through a period of that at first. Now I am fairly comfortable with VP-ASP.

It is one of the best carts I have worked with, and it definately beats the heck out of coding a cart of your own from scratch.
