Ecwid
It is very easy to set up, it works with Authorize.net, 2Checkout, PayPal and Google Checkout.
It gives options for ordering by phone, check, echeck, fax, money order, purchase order and wire transfer.
It will integrate with real time shipping estimates from USPS, UPS, FedEx and Australia Post. (but you have to create separate accounts with each of those companies and jump through a couple of hoops)
You can also define your own shipping rates on a per item or per order basis, or by weight, or as a percentage of the price.
It produces a nice invoice for the customer and emails order notifications to both the seller and customer.
You can have multiple categories.
You can define your own sales tax rules and have destination based or source based tax rules.
It has a nice css based layout so it is relatively easy to customize, but you probably won't have to.
You can configure the catalog to display as tiles, grid or list (with images of course).
It is all Ajax driven so it is pretty fast.
You can change the product thumbnail sizes.
It is MUCH easier to use and administer than Zen Cart, OS Commerce, the PayPal shipping/tax/orders options and every other javascript and php shopping cart I've ever tried.
You can define your products in a spreadsheet, export to csv and import them into the cart (just don't import columns that have no data!)
It integrates well with Joomla *as long as you use a plugin that will prevent javascript tags from getting stripped from your articles* - such as Jumi or Sourcer.

It is really a pleasure to work with. The FAQ says they may offer a paid service in the future, but the free version will always be free. If you've been looking around for a nice shopping cart, check this one out.

Constant Contact Signup
This is a very simple extension that does just what it says. Very convenient!
There is a small css error in modules/mod_ccsignup/tmpl/default.php (style="margin-bottom:2")- it should be margin-bottom:2px. But that does not impact the usability in any way.
Owner's reply

Thanks for the input. I will log the bug and have it fixed in the next release. - Cheers!
