Mothership is an open source web retail software, combining e-commerce with Electronic Point Of Sale (EPOS) into a single, unified platform.

It is based on over 10 years experience, yet it is entirely new, containing zero legacy code, making it a perfect platform for developers.

It incorporates the full range of applications you'd expect to run an online store, with some rather nice surprises too, including fully integrated EPOS (Electronic Point Of Sale).

We've launched a Wiki and Forum dedicated to Mothership, along with a roadmap laying out some of the ideas we have on the planning board.
