    To a certain extent, I think this depends on how far developed your website is. Are you looking for something to tack on to your site, or are you looking for something as a complete package as the main content management system on your site?

    A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

    What you really need is not a "bunch of perl scripts" but a good e-commerce system that is mature and is being actively developed.

    You don't want to have to hack everything yourself whenever new e-commerce requirements come along, and you want an active community that is finding and fixing security problems, because you will never be able to manage all of that yourself. You want something that you can just upgrade to the latest version when issues like that come along.

    I haven't done a recent store in Perl. For better or worse, most of that stuff is now done in PHP. I have seen Magento recommended as something that works with Perl, though I don't have any experience with it myself.

    I realize that this is an old thread, but I wanted to mention that SurfShop is now open source. If anyone is looking for a Perl cart, this one may be worth a look.
