After development of the software, it will be tested by the testing engineers. Then it will be issued to the clients, and the client will publish the details of the good available with him by creating a website. Generally, shopping cart sites are called CMS (Content Management System). The details of the available goods will be published either by the person who purchased the software or by the administrator concerned. Further it will be published through the dailies, and other media like television and radio about the creation of the new shopping cart website. The public will be able to go through them and order their needs.
