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.

OpenCart

OpenCart is well suited for multiple client e-commerce website building, with unlimited categories for products. It's not suited for data management, very large queries that take a lot of time to load, and those who lack the developer skills to administer OpenCart.

Cons

  • I found their customer service team to be confusing with their responses and not as helpful as other products customer service teams. It can be frustrating to try to decipher their responses to more complicated questions and often felt a little 'annoying' whenever I needed to reach out.
  • When creating newsletters, I found the WYSIWYG (what you see if what you get) version of creating newsletters the formatting was almost always off which always resulted in needing to send tests to myself to fix the formatting because it never showed up as it would look when it was sent. That took a lot of extra time to edit.
  • Lots of different options with reports, as a beginner you may need someone else to support you. In the beginning I needed support from other team members in how to understand and create certain reports. Not the most intuitive and user friendly until you understand what you're doing!

  • Sometimes developer skill is required to work on admin module.
  • Add-on modules are often necessary, and you need to purchase them separately
  • Hard to update it to new versions, and it is constantly updating
  • Though it is smooth to use, it works on a read-edit-delete system. Deleting data is very critical.

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.

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

OpenCart is way easier to understand than any other e-commerce platform like Shopify, Magento, etc. Integration to multiple websites. Some other e-commerce platforms are paid services, whereas OpenCart is an open-source, free platform, which you can customise according to your need. Lots of plugins are available which you can integrate easily with OpenCart and use. Can get your queries solved easily since OpenCart forum has already solved many queries of others.
