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 is great for someone looking to become an affiliate marketer. They have multiple features to help you sell their product. I would say it is a little less appropriate for people who have limited web design experience. It can be a little confusing when you are first starting out. Overall though, I would say that it is easy to use.

Pros

1ShoppingCart

  • 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.

  • It would help if I could offer my clients more than a 14 day free trial.
  • The web design can become confusing on their platform.
  • It would be nice to have more app options.

Likelihood to Renew

1ShoppingCart 5.5
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.

All the functionality needed for a basic store is extremely easy to manage. Though some deeper customization requires coding it doesn't hide the code from you and provides an abundance of developer resources.

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

1ShoppingCart

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

Magento, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce for WordPress were the main alternatives we considered.
  • Magento - we had a negative experience with the complexity involved in maintaining the site backend and product catalog with a previous client and decided it wasn't suitable for the client in question's site
  • BigCommerce - based on our investigation, BigCommerce's customization options were even more limited than Shopify's and their subscription model was more expensive
  • We have had positive experiences with WordPress and WooCommerce but the client's non-technical nature and desire to have the site basically run itself w/o support steered us in favor of Shopify
