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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
