   - payment methods
   - possible Xml or Pdf outputs

• all features are developed from scratch (there can be a lot of possible problems)
• calculation should be thoroughly tested
• of course such version cannot be used on production site.

What is and what isn't Phoca Cart:

Phoca Cart is simple shopping cart solution for Joomla! 3 CMS. It is not robust e-commerce solution like VirtueMart is. If you are looking for robust e-commerce solution, you should use VirtueMart not PhocaCart (in addition, there is a long way to make Phoca Cart stable and ready).

Why has been released a not completed extension:

Shopping cart solution is really complicated system (for example calculation: inclusive VAT, exclusive VAT, fixed VAT value, percentage VAT value, discounts on all items, on selected items, on selected categories - fixed or percentage, shipping rules based on region, country, amount or weight values, shipping VAT, payments, etc. - all this in various combinations) so it needs to be heavily tested.

If you find any bug or you have some feature request idea, please post a topic to Phoca Forum. Thank you.

For now there are three modules:

• Phoca Cart Cart module - displaying a cart in module position
• Phoca Cart Currency module - displaying currency selector in module position
• Phoca Cart Compare module - displaying selected products to display them in comparison list.
