sorry to go against the flow, but I have to recommend AGAINST osC. The
code tree just seems very inefficient to me. They require
register_globas = On (Ick); there's way too much embedded HTML, and I
remember numerous redundant directories/files. The
flexibility/modulizing is a little overrated, IMO. Good, important mods
like CCGV require a Lot of work to implement. And god help you if you
want to write some custom code to drop in.

Zencart is just a fork (a somewhat-cleaner fork) of osC. Look at xCart
maybe -- I installed that once and liked the very little I did with it.
But I don't think there's a "great" out-of-the-box solution anywhere yet.

Go with oscommerce, i had only great experiences with it!
It's very customizable, has a lot of premade modules that are free,
and a great flexibility in dealing payments
