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.

Shopify Plus is a good solution for any ecommerce doing up to $1B / year in revenue. Look up the top companies on the platform and they show that Shopify Plus can handle all clients. I love how they are consistently releasing new features and we don't have to go through manual upgrades.

Pros

3dcart

  • 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.

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.

Shopify Plus

  • Improved templates and themes.
  • Less expensive premium templates and themes.
  • More font and color/branding elements, without the need to purchase outside the platform or add-on expensive add-on applications.
  • Expand shipping options, perhaps more integrations,
  • Increased quality of drop shipping vendors and on-platform design tools.

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

3dcart

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

We selected Shopify over Magento due to development, hosting and payment processing costs. And BigCommerce was a decent choice, but this let us start small and grow quickly.
