They seem to be very well suited to startup websites.We need to almost threaten to leave to get them to pay attention to us, a 10-year customer and a larger company. When they do pay attention, we pretty much got the royal treatment. When we have brought new ideas and concepts to them, they make us pay for the upgrade, then offer that upgrade to all other customers. Essentially we fell like we are funding their R&D at times.

It's well suited for simple e-commerce and basic inventory management needs.

Pros

3dcart

  • 3dcart is a more basic website tool that can get customers started quickly.
  • It only has a certain amount of options, making it an ok tool to use if you don't need a particularly large website.

Big Cartel

  • It's very easy to use and does not require a lot of configuration or setup.
  • It has been extremely reliable. Clients never have issues with purchasing from it and it has always has been up for us.
  • It's very fast. It loads quick both on the consumer/front end and also admin/backend.
  • Pricing model is flat, not percentage of transactions.

Cons

3dcart

  • 3dcart does not connect to many of the POS systems my clients use so we need to manually update inventory daily/weekly.
  • There are many modules available to do many different things, but it makes you feel like you are being tickled and died to death to get the site to do exactly what you want. Also can be confusing if you don't know what you actually need.
  • It's a little difficult/confusing to upload products with multiple variations - ie: color and size - especially if there are multiples colors and multiple sizes.

  • For our needs I really can't think of anything!

Likelihood to Renew

3dcart

Not applicable - as a franchisee, the franchiser took over the web site and shopping cart capabilities, so I no longer need the tool. But I would recommend it.

Alternatives Considered

3dcart

While Shopify is pretty slick in operation, Shopify's fees are way, way, way too expensive compared to 3Dcart.Magento required a hefty redesign price Tag. BigCommerce seemed like overkill for our needs as an e-commerce company. Big Commerce has some very good material to help you decide on how to pick an e-commerce engine that was helpful to us.

Return on Investment

3dcart

  • Because 3dcart ended up not being the best for our business, we decided to go with BigCommerce instead.
  • It was an excellent platform to consider, and we tried it for a time but quickly realized it did not provide what our business needed.

  • The basic plan at $10/month easily saves us that in time from having to manage our own e-commerce system on our own site.
