InMotion Evaluation

  • New to E-Commerce
    If you have never made a website before you will probably want to start with a builder that has an integrated shopping cart. With InMotion's website builder you cart will automatically have your sites look and feel. It lets you organize your products easily by category, assign inventory levels, and add product attributes like colors. It also allows full merchant account integration with popular merchants such as PayPal, Authorize.Net and 2checkout.com.

    If you are thinking about more than maybe 20 to 25 products, it can be done, but the layout is more difficult to manage. You may want to consider one of the shopping carts below.
  • Intermediate to Advanced
    Intermediate to Advanced - InMotion's packages support a lot of the most popular shopping carts by default.

    New E-commerce Site
    InMotion's business class hosting comes with an easy auto installer. The carts available are OSCommerce, ZenCart and CubeCart.

    Moderate to High Volume
    High traffic sites usually require a vps or dedicated server. In some cases, your merchant account provider will probably require a vps or dedicated for compliance reasons. Since InMotion sets up their vps and dedicated servers like their shared hosting it is easier to get your shopping cart installed. If you need the auto-installer you may need to pay for it, check with them.

    Popular Carts
    All the business class, vps, and dedicated servers support PHP, Perl, and MySQL and the following carts can be installed relatively easily:
    • Magneto
    • Zen Cart
    • X-Cart
    • AgoraCart
    • Cube Cart
    • Lite Commerce
    • Ubercart
    • OS Commerce
    • ShopSite


    If you are new, keep in mind that hosting companies do not usually give support for third party software. We have found, particularly if you are understanding of the time it takes, InMotion is one of the few who will at least guide you in the right direction.
