Hi Mario - your program is quite cool - I wish it could import a .csv file of products like EasyPopulate is supposed to do...(haven't been able to though!) - but my biggest wish is that you'd develop as similar desktop/connected to database app for orders & shipping. Anybody doing e-commerce is probably shipping something unless they are all digital - and that means a shipping program. The best on the market for the U.S. right now is called Endicia http://www.endicia.com - the only desktop order manager I know of that has true integration w/ Endicia (based on XML) - is the Zoovy http://www.zoovy.com order manager, part of their ecommerce package which requires a monthly subscription, that your store be hosted through them, etc.
An OScommerce order/shipping manager w/ Endicia integration would be fabulous.

I'm planning an importing interface to import not only CSV text but also ODBC data sources and maybe other formats.

I have several request to manage the orders. You are the first to mention shipping. Maybe it is because OSCommerce doesn't follow the packages after the sale, I think most shipping tracking/managing is left to the store owner to do it using something else.

Well, I haven't reviewed the Endicia service. It seems that the Endicia software is just a platform for the real offer (the service).
Let me think more about this, stace. I don't know if this should be a different application. The OSCPMWin app was really designed to manage products only. I would like to extend it but first I must fix several problems.
I'm designing the next big release. After that I will explore other features like order management and shipping.
In any case, any extra comments about what features you would like to have in the software (as detailed as you can) would be very helpful. Or details about how you use Endicia service with you OSCommerce store.
