I'm looking for a good alternative for Shopify or Magento, but preferably low-cost or free. Here are the minimum features I need:

  • Free/low-cost hosting (or easy setup)
  • Shipping integration
  • Mt. Gox or Bitpay integration (optional)
  • Doesn't this mean “any e-commerce platform, and I don't want to pay (much)”? This question is far too broad. A good software recommendation question should define reasonably specific requirements (yours are too broad) and a purpose (e.g. “I want to run a site with about P products, about C customers, a turnover of X, these payment methods, integration with this backend database, …”). Please read our [question quality guidelines](meta.softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/q/336) and our tips on asking for alternatives (why not Shopify or Magento?). Feb 27, 2014 at 17:41

  • It's easy to install
  • Includes 10 shipping methods (See here)
  • Written in PHP
