HTML-Cart is a free shopping cart that will allow you to create your shopping cart pages using standard html code and then when items are added to the cart they are passed to a small cgi script on the server that will supply all the the cart and check out features.

The cart also makes use of a secret encryption keys to insure that the amounts on your html pages are not modified before they are submitted.

This has got to be the simpliest self install shopping cart that you can find! HTML-Cart is extreemly simple, but the down side of that is that it lacks some more advanced features. So if you are looking for something more powerful you can check out one of our other FREE database driven shopping carts:

CommerceSQL - MySQL Database Driven Shopping Cart!
