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.

Wix

Wix is great if you have a great eye for design and are trying to build a beautiful, unique site. It is not great for multi-page sites, as it is hard to create cohesion across the pages, and the universal settings are not great. If you think you may want to make extreme changes to your site at a later time, I would recommend Squarespace, which is less custom but more manageable for large updates.

Pros

  • Email broadcasts are super easy with 1ShoppingCart
  • Affiliate set up and management is easy
  • Wix makes it easy for users with no coding experience to create a visually appealing website.
  • Wix has a variety of plug-ins including, galleries, forums, chat, blogging, Instagram, counter, PDF viewer, and many more.
  • Wix is also connected with a large variety of third-party apps that can be used such as chatbot, contact form, Eventbrite, and Event Viewer.

Cons

  • Customer Service - You have to pay in order to speak to a live customer service rep.
  • Wix seems to require a lot of resources as the site gets more content. My site is fairly basic. A few pages, a handful of graphics, and some text. But editing the site is much slower than I would like. I have fast internet and have used multiple browsers and computers, but it's still considerably slow.
  • Support can be difficult to reach. I had an issue when I very first signed up and all I could do was submit a question on a forum (no phone #, no email, etc.). Then the response I got was an answer through the forum. This was inconvenient in my opinion.
  • They could improve rearranging strips. Sometimes it seems to cooperate and move all elements in the strip with it. Other times the background moves but leaves all the elements in place.

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.

We will definitely renew Wix. The ability to completely control our website has been invaluable to us. We will maintain this service as long as we are an incorporated organization, we've tried several other software options and this has been the best solution by far for all of our needs.

It's useable for the most basic person to use, but it's not a great option overall. I think that the platform for creating is rather cumbersome and not clean or organized. If you don't care about that while working on a website, it's an okay option, but I only recommend this option for basic users.

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
WordPress is not for the amateur and it has significant security holes that need patching constantly. I have to update it weekly. Wix does the security updates themselves. Squarespace is comparable in cost and ease of use, but there is not as much variety in the templates. Web.com just makes crappy looking sites.

Return on Investment

  • Better ability to gather information quickly for customers to support in the customer service response time
  • Faster lead conversion
  • Ability for multiple users to use the product under different user names so the team can work on different projects at once
  • Unless you know HTML the newsletters can take some time to be formatted correctly based on other programs
  • A clear understanding of our needs
  • Better communication between designers and back end coders
  • Budget friendly
