  • Tax Rate Calculations
  • Unlimited product attributes
  • Shipping

You can see a working demo here


Install with Bower

bower install

or manually install using the latest release


1.Make sure simpleStore is on a web server (any type will do as long as it can serve static web pages).

2.Configure your payment options in js/config.js.

checkout: {
	type: "PayPal" ,
	email: ""

3.Edit the js/config.js to your liking.

4.Add additional products in the products.json file.

Using Plugins

To use a plugin, add a reference just before your config.js file

<script src="plugins/google-sheets.js"></script>
<script src="js/config.js"></script>

HTML Version

If you are looking for something more basic, check out the HTML version on this branch. The HTML version uses plain HTML to build the store instead of a JSON file.

Add additional products using the <div class="simpleCart_shelfItem"></div> tags.

Credit where credit is due

A note about JavaScript shopping carts

ALL JavaScript shopping carts are NOT fullproof. Because simpleStore is fully client-side, some users may attempt to alter prices before checkout. SimpleStore does the best it can to minimize this kind of activity. Make sure to monitor your sales. Just like in real life, if someone walks into your store and changes the price tag, you will certainly not honor those changes.
