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 broadcasts are super easy with 1ShoppingCart
  • Affiliate set up and management is easy
  • Can quickly launch a store, even within a day
  • No need for development work with lots of themes & plugins
  • Low cost, between $29 to $79 a month

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.
  • To reiterate a previous point, my only comment about the limitations of Shopify's service is that for a company with many products (growing beyond 5+ products), Shopify's pricing makes it completely prohibitive for use. The pricing model is not built out to support this and it's just not practical, especially for any startup company that is working with limited funds.

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.

It was too expensive for the state that my business was in. After I get up on my feet again and can gain more of a customer base it may be an option. Right now it just was not a feasible way for me to run my growing business. I hope to use it again soon

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 is the top of the list compared to the others I have used on the basis of simple usability and ability to work for almost anyone. I will say that each of the others have individual features which beat Shopify. As I mentioned you can purchase applications to get these features back within Shopify, but that additional cost is aggravating as it can as much as double the monthly expense to the owner.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion, definitely
  • Increase sales from 0 to 20 orders per month
  • Attract a visits of 3,000 per month
  • Hassle free SEO setup
