who want to start an e-commerce site, and the advent of online marketplaces that bring together such actors in
Indeed, the landscape of e-commerce open source software is dominated by complex solutions that meet the needs of
actors with complex catalog, logistics and workflow needs.
Small businesses wishing to sell their products through a simple e-commerce sites are turning to the world of
hosted software (SaaS), and their possibilities for customization and expansion are limited.
Meanwhile, online marketplaces are democratizing and allow to unite around a brand or theme, e-merchants wishing
to extend their reach without incurring marketing action.
The Mayocat Shop open source software meets both the need for simplicity in managing small e-commerce
and provides tools to connect them together through online marketplaces.
The feature-set offered by Mayocat is not too broad to keep the promise of simplified e-commerce. However, the
platform is easily extensible via a plugin mechanism to accommodate special needs.

and adds in the means to connect them together in a unified interface via its APIs: lists and cross-shop research of
products, shared cart, etc...
