Why is this software given free now?

How about those who paid for it?

Hi Mao, from my understanding its being phased out as it doesn't fit with the new responsive design software that Coffeecup is putting out. They also dropped support for it.

Yeah.. I get that they see it as obsolete, but it would be nice to have some sort of migration path from the awesome shopping cart creator Pro to the preferred product. I still use Shopping Cart Creator Pro (SCCP), because I can't see any way to use RSD to replace the functionality of SCCP.

Even a tutorial like, "The Mugs Guide to Loosening the Death Grip on Shopping Cart Creator Pro and Using Our New {whatever we are supposed to do thing inserted here}"...

I use RSD for my website, and it is great, but I can't make the leap to using it to replace SCCP.

RSD is not meant to replace SCCP. If you have just a handful of products, you could use Web Form Builder to handle orders. However if you need a full-featured cart, and there are a number of open source carts that you could use.

The problem is less about the cart and more about the inventory management. SCCP enabled me to upload, every day, updated pricing and inventory. So that I could keep the physical store and the online store inventory consistent.

Anyway, I need to have a look at the open source solutions out there now as sitelock seems to be telling me that SCCP has cross-scripting vulnerabilities.

SCCP, was never a real full featured product. Glad they finally decided to abandon it. Well, actually, they abandoned it almost from the beginning. CC was trying to lock in certain situation and was never a full featured system. Why do I sound so frustrated? It is because it really frustrated me with CC piece meal, never full featured cost structure and roll out.

I stop now before I really say something bad.
