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.

If you have complex requirements, need flexibility and like having control and access to the code base Magento can be an awesome choice. If you are on a limited budget, are not a developer or can't hire a developer or if you can live with the out of the box features from a smaller SAS platform Magento may not be a great fit.

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.

  • Internal Referencing or Search is easy within Magento. Accurately researching previously relevant information is intuitive and simple.
  • Magento's category, product and customer information structure, while not being robust, is simple and accessible.
  • The ability to assign permissions by role and create specific access for varying accountabilities allows for greater internal security and more specific accountabilities.

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.

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.

Magento implementation services drive a decent amount of revenue to our company and allow us to work with a more diverse client base. From a customer perspective, I expect most businesses will want to continue working with the tool as long as it supports the business needs. eBay shows signs of making the tool even stronger and able to grow with any sized business

Magento offers lots of templates and themes to customize the look and feel of the store, and even optimize it for mobile phones. The have an extensive library of forms and templates.

Alternatives Considered

I found 3dcart to be the most cost effective and easiest to use for my smaller to medium sized business clients.

We did evaluate WooCommerce and Wordpress against Magento and I am listing some major plus points that Magento carries over others :- The extent to which Magento can be customised is way beyond the others.- The number of Plugins that are available for Magento is a lot more than others.- Magmi which I used for Magento bulk upload is only available for this.

Return on Investment

  • 3dcart has enabled my clients to quickly and easily get up and running with an online store giving them an almost immediate ROI.
Tracy Beers profile photo
  • Well, it would have helped if we had more control over cart abandonment.
  • Bulk Upload issues hamper catalog building a lot.
  • It helps to have a lot of marketing tools that are available in the Magento Store
  • All in all, it has been pretty positive although it could get a lot better.
