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.

OpenCart

OpenCart is great for web developers familiar with PHP who have clients who want very specific eCommerce functionalities. OpenCart is "open-source," meaning its source code is open to the public and downloadable and editable by anyone. This makes customizing its functionalities possible with nearly an infinite variety of possibilities. If you are not tech savvy and don't like to read documentation and configure advanced settings, then OpenCart is not the best solution for you.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenCart

  • OpenCart is open-source software, free to use. Free is always a plus for software.
  • Good basic set of features that provides for a quick setup of a simple e-commerce website.
  • Administration is fairly user-friendly and makes it easy for a non-technical user to find things.

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.
Tracy Beers | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenCart

  • It's a very buggy platform. Although OpenCart developers release new versions time to time after fixing bugs every version of OpenCart has a different type of bug.
  • It should increase the security of the platform.

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.

OpenCart

Some of the products available on the market are cheap, but they are not as easily to use or understand as OpenCart. Many are also not open source products, so you need to buy. You can purchase modules for OpenCart. Support is also easily available for OpenCart in the OpenCart forum. The admin portal of OpenCart is also more advanced than any other product out there.

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.

OpenCart

  • User friendly, easily understandable, can get your queries answer fast in OpenCart forum.
  • Clients are happy with custom designed pages.
  • Multiple website integrations easily saves time and money for multiple website creation
