This refers to a standard osCommerce shop. One that doesn't fit into one of the following categories.
This refers to a shop that has a template installed that was purchased at one of the online template
vendors like algozone.com and templatemonster.com. The template designers generally take shorts cuts
with the code to get the appearance of the template as they want it. This causes problems
when trying to install contributions since, many times, the code in the template package doesn't come close
to matching that of a standard shop.

BTS stands for Basic Template System. It is a code change added to a basic osCommerce
shop that allows easier changing of the look of the shop. There are many pre-built shops that use it
like CRE Loaded, OsMax and SEC. When the BTS package is installed, it radically changes many of
the files in the shop. The result is that installing code changes is much more difficult in some
cases. As a result, the cost to make these changes is higher.
Does my shop use the BTS system?
It is fairly easy to tell if your shop uses the BTS system. Just look in the root
directory of your files (that is where the index.php file is located) and see if there
is a directory named templates. If there is, then you are most likely using such a shop.
