Dear Community
can you advise what other shopping carts can be used with yola. Looking to see what can be used apart from the yola shopping cart. Bit a problem working it in the UK. 
Thanks

Dear Ali

I can't offer you an alternative shopping cart provider from my side, but would you mind describing in more detail what makes it difficult for you to use Yola Online Store in the UK? Your feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Stefan
Because there is no postage set up for the UK i found it hard to set this up. Additionally the layout of the shopping cart was hard to configure.

Hello Hass,

I worked on this aspect of mailing charges within the UK using RM a couple of years ago. The problem was that Royal Mail didn't have an API for their charges. You have to work from their cost lists and the destination codes at that time weren't systematic. I think I worked on zones by creating a table within the facility and with weight of parcel compared this to the table charges. 

Many e-com carts had the same problem and Ecwid's solution was as good as another at that stage. I'm happy to review this with you if you want to explore it.

The shopping cart configuration is a steep learning curve and it does come together as you get into it.
