I'd personally recommend hand coding.....Whichever server side scripting
language you prefer to work in.....
I've built countless shopping carts in th epast using ASP, and to be honest,
it's a lot easier than most people realise.....And it has the advantage that
the end product is 100% tailored to your needs....It's coded from the ground
up with your needs in mind....An off the shelf package will always feel
somewhat *shoehorned* to fit your needs.....
