1ShoppingCart

I find that people who own product based businesses do well with 1ShoppingCart. If you are offering products you'd like to sell right from your website, this is a great option. However, there are some things to be aware of, it isn't as easy to sell directly to segmented lists. You'll have to manually segment the lists rather than having more intuitive options. There are other things about 1SC that I really like and definitely see its benefits for sure. Many people I know who use this service are highly product based and its important that they have a reliable cart that works easily and without problems.I don't see 1ShoppingCart as the best option for someone who owns a coaching or consulting business. There may be too many options and since these businesses are based on the list, I'd recommend another service to get more for your unique situation. It's important to look at what you are looking for in your service - are you looking for streamlined marketing avenues and integrated cart with customer service options? Then 1SC may not be the best option.

Magento Open Source

It is definitely not a product for a small team looking for minimal hands-on development time. However, if you do have time/budget for a team of developers to develop and maintain a Magento storefront, then it gives you a lot of flexibility and customizability in terms of customer user experience.

Pros

  • Email broadcasts are super easy with 1ShoppingCart
  • Affiliate set up and management is easy
  • Out of the box product display allows for you to quickly get your products shown to the consumers
  • Customizable product options allow for a wide variety of selection of products
  • Customizable payment and shipping options allow for many different use-case scenarios for the consumer.

Cons

  • The UI needs improvement. There are other systems out there that are more intuitive.
  • Customizing/branding a shopping cart page can be a little tricky - when it should be very simple.
  • Magento is complicated to use and has a high learning curve from a management user point of view.
  • We found it difficult to upgrade when newer releases came out.
  • The front-end templating system seems needlessly obtuse and is difficult to develop. Smaller front-end elements are individual files and layouts are controlled through XML files.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 2 answers
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.

It's the dominant force in the SMB open source market. With the continued support of eBay/PayPal, Magento will continue to evolve and should be a market leader for some time.

Alternatives Considered

Again, it's the client that usually selects the system they want to use. I think 1ShoppingCart has lower monthly payment options so that makes it more appealing. Infusionsoft has a $2k payment that must be made in order to use their product
Compared to other small - medium sized business e-commerce solutions, Magento is by far requires the most development resources to implement and maintain. Creating a custom Drupal or WordPress based e-commerce solution requires development resources as well, but the complexity of Magento makes it more difficult and time consuming than the former two platforms. We only select Magento when there is already an older version of Magento in place and the client wants to stick with it.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion, definitely
  • Too much time has been spent on development of the Magento implementation and maintenance that should have been spent on marketing and customer experience improvements.
