Zen Cart
Zen Cart is an open source online store management system. It is PHP-based, using a MySQL database and HTML components. Support is provided for several languages and currencies, and it is freely available under the GNU General Public License.

Zen Cart branched from osCommerce as a separate project. Beyond some aesthetic changes, the major differences between the two systems come from Zen Cart's architectural changes(e.g. a template system) and additional included features in the core. Among the modules already included are a Gift Certificate/Voucher module which allows to create, send and manage the digital coupons. A module to sell downloads(pdf or other media files) is included as well.

CubeCart
CubeCart is a free-to-use eCommerce software solution, designed to allow individuals and businesses sell tangible and digital goods on line. CubeCart is not Open Source software, although full source code is available at no cost, and the custom licensing model allows for customisation of the code.

At the time of writing, CubeCart is in use by over one million stores, according to a Google search.

On July 13, 2007, Devellion announced that CubeCart would be joining the GoPHP5 Initiative. This means that all new software releases after February 5th, 2008 will only support PHP 5.2 or later, although they have stated that PHP4 versions of the software will continue to be supported beyond this date.

Version 4.2.0 of the software was released on February 20th 2008, and was the first release following the GoPHP5 initiative guidelines, requiring a minimum PHP version of 5.2.0

According to me, it's a groundbreaking open source technology. It is the fastest growing eCommerce platform in the market with feature-rich, enterprise-grade eCommerce solution. Magento eCommerce Development offers merchants complete flexibility and control over the user experience, content and functionality of their online stores.

I think Os-commerce is the best e-commerce software available for having robust web applications.It is widely used among all other e-commerce softwares.

I feel Zen Cart is one of the better free shopping carts. It is an open source shopping cart system, which means that developers can add to the code, developing additional features and functionalities.Zen Cart is easy to install, and it is also easy to use. The interface is very user friendly, and the shopping cart can be installed with relative ease. In fact, you can have your Zen Cart installed and activated in less than 15 minutes
