3dcart

3dcart works well for small to medium size businesses that want to take care of their own website and product uploads and have the time to stay on top of inventory management. It does not work as well for a business who wants to just "turn it on" and forget about it unless they are able to integrate their POS system with 3dcart to manage inventory.

Kibo eCommerce

Overall, a great eCommerce platform. I do think, however, that there are many things built into its predecessor that still need to be incorporated into the Kibo version.Hosting and support are top-notch and very responsive at any time of day or night.Adding new features and capabilities should be a bit more streamlined and it would be nice to see 3rd party integrations and features become included standards sooner and with greater frequency.

Pros

  • SEO - 3dcart is built in such a way that even if you do no SEO work at all, as long as you use the meta description wizard on each page or product you wind up still searching pretty well in Google.
  • Product uploads - Product uploads are easy to do with 3dcart's .csv import/export feature. No need to struggle with messy simple and variable uploads like on WooCommerce, 3dcart takes the guesswork and hassle out of uploading different product types.
  • Media uploads - Media uploads are quick and simple and the uploader always works.

  • Single admin tool for multiple sites is a huge plus. Eliminates much duplication of labor and a shared code base is also much simpler.
  • Native responsive design in the latest version is great.
  • Dynamic product categories is a big win.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The discount engine is challenging and not nearly as robust or easy to use as the former MarketLive counterpart.
  • Some of the product functionality that was native to the MarketLive platform has not translated well (or at all) to the Kibo NG version.

Likelihood to Renew

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.
