I didn’t mean to give this 4 stars – easy a 5 ***** add-on. By far the best Ecommerce Solution for EE – outstanding module and excellent and friendly support. Keep it up chaps!

Hands down the most customizable shopping cart for EE. Would be a lot better if the sample templates were more fleshed out; that was my biggest complaint at first. Literally had to build a store from the ground up. The only real weakness is the shipping integration. Other than that, great cart!

A developer’s wet dream for e-commerce.  Rather than spending my time digging through heaps of pre-installed markup, configuring XML files, and hunting down tidbits of crap and nonsense, I can write what I need from the ground-up.

CartThrob truly is e-commerce done the EE way.

By far the team at Barrett Newton offer the best support of any add-on devs out there. CartThrob is powerful and simple.

We use CartThrob for devot:ee’s add-on store. It was easy to implement and works very well.

CartThrob is by far the easiest commerce solution to implement on an EE-powered site and the developers are phenomenal people: fast with updates and very receptive to feedback.

Top notch all around.

I can’t say enough good things about CartThrob as a product and Barrett Newton as a company.

CartThrob makes it extremely easy to implement ecommerce into ExpressionEngine and allows developers to keep the “EE” mindset all along the way.

Furthermore they have the most amazing support team ever!
