Freeway (OSCommerce) was an Open Source E-Commerce solution to be used together with Joomla CMS. The Freeway project was the very good idea of porting OScommerce to Joomla. Unfortunately it died a death and is no longer being supported.

Therefore this information is now for historical purposes only and we will not be implementing any more Freeway sites.

Freeway is the most advanced Open Source eCommerce platform and Freeway offers selling methods only previously available in enterprise class or niche bespoke systems. Without having to purchase a commercial system and then paying a developer to build a custom installation, Freeway does what you need out of the box. Of course Freeway is great for selling products but it also sells  events AND services AND subscriptions. From appointments and time based bookings to event ticketing and subscriptions Freeway is the eCommerce platform for how we want to sell.


Freeway is by far the largest and most fully featured Open Source eCommerce platform. It doesn't just sell products but extends to sell in some very fancy new ways and is very configurable. For example, you can just sell products if you are not interested in the other selling methods.

You will find Freeway has very strong CRM features as well as a useful and simple CMS as well.

Take a few minutes to review the feature set. We think you are going to love it!

This is an incomplete list. We will flesh it out over time.
