here is a list of open source webshops

and here is a list of open source webshops supporting bitcoin(bitcoin modules available but not included in the official release)
    Virtumart
    Zen Cart
    OpenCart
    WP e-commerce

now its obvious that the true value of a currency is what you can buy for it, so to raise bitcoin value we must get more vendors to accept bitcoin
but that can never happen until webshop softwares start supporting bitcoin payments

now most of these software solutions are written in php, two in java and two in python, one of perl and one of asp .NET
so what we need first is a php webshop module to attach to half of these solutions

now i looked around a list of businesses accepting bitcoin and found few vendors use some of these widely used eCommerce softwares,
eg My Healthy Organics uses zencart a php based foss eCommerce solution
the thing is that Zen Cart featurelist does not include bitcoin payments as far as i can tell, so did the vendor write his own support for the feature?

i think we could get lot more vendors supporting bitcoin if we could get a "pay with bitcoin" feature from some of these sites on the list and get the feature included in all the most used foss webshop solutions

so is there any vendor here who has modified their webshop software and could we approach the webshop development teams with that solution?

You missed these: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Category:Shopping_Cart_Interfaces

By saying "we should" you basically fall victim to something close to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bystander_effect

Post a bounty for a shopping cart interface that is missing, or convince online businesses that use open source to start accepting Bitcoin, and then post on forums asking for specific interfaces that are demanded by businesses.

use of "we should" was not falling victim to the bystander syndrome, it was pretty intentional, you see i really really dislike web development as such

if however someone already had a working php module for shopping cart systems(and obviously many people do) i wouldnt mind walking through development irc channels trying to convince someone to include that feature in their software releases

They exist, go for it.

You'll find open source bitcoin integration (WIP) for the open source spree rails webshop here :
 - https://github.com/davout/bitcoin-merchant
 - https://github.com/davout/spree-bitcoin-checkout

I can't wait to hear about the results of your PR effort Smiley

Opencart is open source and there is a free module for accepting bitcoin ( via mybitcoin.com).

mkay osCommerce would take the payment module into use if its provided to them, does any of the webshops accepting bitcoin already use osCommerce with their own implementation of bitcoin payment module? would hate to reinvent the wheel

okey looks like i'll be taking the osCommerce module, it will most likely be modified out of Zen Cart module, i might get some help from osCommerce community

would anyone be willing to try to get excisting modules(list in the first post) included with the default releases of the webshops,
vendors are far more likely to take bitcoin into use if they dont have to find and get the modules from third party but can just enable it from the webshop config
