The Commerce Starter Kit for ASP.NET 2.0 is a free, open source application built from the ground up on ASP.NET 2.0. It includes a storefront, shopping cart, order management system and many other features required to sell products online. It comes pre-integrated with PayPal Pro and can be extended to support other payment systems as well. In this presentation, Rob Conery, the creator of the Commerce Starter Kit, gives an overview of the project and shows how you can extend it to meet your specific needs using the Data Provider Model available in ASP.NET 2.0.
