ASP Shopping Cart Software?

Windows shopping cart software recommendation?

I'm looking for a not-ridiculously-expensive shopping cart package that I can put on a client's windows box. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, but Authorize.Net is a must. Any recommendations? Must be either cgi or ASP; client won't go for PHP/MySQL.

I've had experience with setting up, administering, and modifying only one shopping cart (if you don't count an early roll-your-own-from-a-free-script fiasco), but based on that experience I can warmly recommend Cactushop. It's ASP. The scripts are extensively commented and, while they've become quite a bit more complex as they've piled on features over the years, they are relatively easy (for this accidental programmer) to follow and relatively easy to tweak. More importantly, it's robust and solid.

I've done no recent research into prices for carts, but it strikes me that Cactushop, at $365, is a bargain. (I would add the encrypted email package, too, at an additional $185.)

Their web site gives you a pretty good tour, and they even have a "lite" version (not actually usable for commerce IIRC), which you can download, install, and configure, and which will retain its configuration when upgraded to the full version.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me (email in profile). And no, I'm not affiliated with them in any way.
