Likelihood to Recommend

1ShoppingCart

It's really user preference. Some people have been told by other colleagues that it's a great system to use so they want to go with that. There are other systems that do exactly the same thing. I have not found that 1ShoppingCart has any unique features that would lead me to persuade a client to use it over another one. I usually have clients look at two or three options and give feedback. Sometimes it comes down to monthly prices.

Magento

Magento is great at handling multiple stores. Data can be shared across each store with a click making initial set up easy, but also allowing for personalisation and customisation to let each store look completely different.

Pros

  • Email Marketing - Easy to use templates but you can also use your custom html template.
  • Managing your list - It is easy to set up separate lists and create opt in forms for each one. It allows multiple opt in forms with customized messages for all steps of the opt in process.
  • Ecommerce - Setup of your product or service is easy. You can use buy now type buttons on the 1ShoppingCart store. Integration with your merchant account or Paypal is offered.
  • Includes an affiliate management option. This module allows you to manage an affiliate with custom links and an area to post materials for affiliates to use - such as banners.
  • Being able to pull product data from our SAP system and upload to Magento with little reworking makes keeping catalogs up to date relatively easy.
  • It's really easy to customise Magento for our customers across different countries which is key during their purchase experience.
  • There is a huge range of add-ons - if Magento can't handle something out the box, there's bound to be an add-on ready and waiting.

Cons

  • Customer Service - You have to pay in order to speak to a live customer service rep.
  • Trying to customize Magento functionality requires in-depth knowledge of the platform
  • Magento does not support more complex internal review processes / publishing workflows
  • Magento is more b2c focused, implementing b2b models can be challenging
  • Some features like gift registry or compare functionality are not very sophisticated

Likelihood to Renew

If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

Great value for an flexible, open source platform.

Alternatives Considered

1SC was chosen years ago for the companies I've used it for. At that point they were one of the only companies offering this kind of service. The ability to have customers all in one place, have opt-ins to keep building the list and ability to add hundreds of products and programs and add these to the website are all reasons the company continues to use 1SC
Magento is much easier to use than osCommerce with many great extra features, and it does not require as much support as does ATG. For a B2C business model Magento should be number one choice to try.

Return on Investment

  • Better ability to gather information quickly for customers to support in the customer service response time
  • Faster lead conversion
  • Ability for multiple users to use the product under different user names so the team can work on different projects at once
  • Unless you know HTML the newsletters can take some time to be formatted correctly based on other programs
  • The ability to integrate with multiple third-party products is a key factor here. We integrate with our bulk email product and our product review engine which eliminates much manual work and dramatically increases efficiency.
