WHAT IS CART BOXX!?

Cart Boxx is a free and open source RESTful PHP shopping cart. Whew, that is a handful. The easier way to explain it is – Cart Boxx is a PHP Cart that also has an API endpoint to support AJAX calls plus mobile applications development.

Cart Boxx is still kind of a skeleton structure at the moment, created by a one-man-army who has limited time… So don’t expect a full-blown e-commerce suite, but you are always free to build on top of it. 🙂
