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.

Netsuite SuiteCommerce

For a larger multinational company, I would have a much lower rating. Especially with the ownership by Oracle it seems likely that the product will become more focused on smaller companies. For companies with less than a few hundred million of revenue or US only organisations, the ease of use and attractiveness of the interface will appeal to the finance community, and the manual effort will be more expected.

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.
  • Reporting, able to pull accurate detailed data.
  • Different departments are able to create searches to pull the data they need.
  • Teams are able to have different roles to see only the data they need.

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.
  • NetSuite is targeted at small companies and lacks the levels of automation, integration and functionality needed in a larger (>1$B) multi national. Moving from SAP to NetSuite our finance team have found many areas which are now manual work which was automated before.
  • Limited capability to integrate with other products. We have to manually run reports into a file before we can integrate with a third party product as the contents of the report were not available in one of the interfaces NetSuite provides.
  • The built-in reporting capabilities are limited and building an interface to an external data warehouse is extremely complex as NetSuite doesn't provide a reliable integration method.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I found 3dcart to be the most cost effective and easiest to use for my smaller to medium sized business clients.
The business had prior experience of SAP R/3 and NetSuite. The ease of use of NetSuite was a clear preference over the less intuitive and more rigid SAP

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.
  • Limit to creating new promotions website.
  • Deleting old or incorrect inventory can cause issues later on.
