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.

Shopify

Shopify is definitely well suited for people who have a propensity for creating and working on websites for sales. Once you get a hang of it and the store is up and running, it starts making more sense. They try their best to make it very user friendly.Shopify is less appropriate for POS product selling. It seems to be an afterthought of the company, like they wanted to make a great online store and then Ted from Accounting (you know Ted, whose uncle golfs with the CEO every weekend?) well Ted had the idea to sell things in an actual store and rather than risk Ted's uncle saying something to the CEO next weekend the people in the meeting kinda put something together to shut Ted up.

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.

  • Sale of niche product
  • Deployment of ecommerce solution by someone with limited technical expertise
  • Ability for a developer to hand off stable ecommerce solution to another party in organization with limited technical know-how
  • Reasonable pricing for a company with a couple products in their line makes it an attractive option for a company with limited funding that is just getting going

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.

  • The price of Shopify is a little high, although it is a quality product and with great support. There are other platforms offering a more competitive price.
  • Telephone support is only available in English. For a platform present in sites from diverse places across the planet, they should offer multi-language assistance.
  • The reports generated by Shopify are acceptable, but could be better and have more details and information.

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.

I think most people are able to suer Shopify that have used a computer. There are some features that take a bit longer to learn. If you are not a creative person it may be a bit more difficult to learn the website customization, but with a help guide or tutorial it will only take a few tries to understand how to work the interface

In terms of support I give Shopify a 9 out of 10 because they're always very friendly and thorough, and they personally can't solve my problem for me they always point me in the proper direction with the proper information I need to move forward

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

Shopify seemed to be more intuitive and more customizable. It seemed to fit a little more in what the company sought, and ended up being our choice, even despite a higher price. The company ended up opting for Shopify by putting everything in the balance and deciding that its benefits would compensate for the price being a little higher than that of Volusion.
