RokQuickCart is a simple shopping cart for Joomla. It takes a simple, yet elegant, shopping cart script and integrates directly into Joomla. It allows you to showcase products, inclusive of images, descriptions and additional options, and purchase these items, with support for shipping and tax calculation.
The extension uses PayPal and Google Checkout as its payment systems.RokQuickCart is based on the great JS cart called simpleCart(js) by "The Wojo Group".
