Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Weebly is great when you're trying to quickly prototype a landing page or mock up a new idea to show team members or early adopter users in order to get their feedback. You'd be OK to use Weebly even for low traffic personal sites like blogs or small e-commerce stores.The places where I'd be hesitant to recommend Weebly would be any scenario in which a lot of people are expected to simultaneously use the site or anything that requires custom back-end code.

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.

Weebly

  • Quick start: You can have a website set up within 15 minutes of thinking of the idea. Weebly is really good at providing templates and starter sites that you can edit quickly. At the same time, you can put in custom HTML blocks into the page so even advanced code can be deployed or tested very quickly.
  • Mobile editing of websites: Weebly provides an iPad app that lets you edit websites on the go or while you're in a team meeting in a conference room.
  • E-commerce features: Weebly allows you to build an online store with drag and drop and not have to worry about coding the payment system or shopping cart. This feature alone saves several days of programming time.

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.

Weebly

  • Weebly's pricing structure leaves plenty of room for improvement. Their Pro and Business tiers should be combined, as the overlap is significant and often confuses clients.
  • The inability to expand my account to handle all 18 client sites under one account is frustrating. We are forced to have two separate logins and set both accounts as editors for all sites on each account, instead of just paying double the annual fee and getting all the sites together.
  • The inability to shift a client's site from 'white label' to group management is terribly irritating.
  • The default themes are fairly limited in style and do not always directly follow modern design trends, making matching client desires more difficult.

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.

Weebly is consistently adding features that line up with our needs. The ease of use makes it the perfect program for us since we have users of multiple age brackets and knowledge of web design. We love that we can give users access to only the pages they are affiliated with

It is simple to use and offers enough customization to make a website that is personalized. Templates are pretty standard and the help section is laid out well by topic with frequently asked questions. Some design knowledge is helpful, but through trial and error anyone can get a hold of the reins fairly quickly.

Alternatives Considered

3dcart

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

Weebly

Squarespace is an underpowered and less-intuitive version of Weebly, which requires your customers go to site.Squarespace.com to finish the checkout process. This is absolutely unacceptable and I would never recommend anyone use them because of this alone, so no other comparisons matter.WordPress is incredible because of the community around it. Tens of thousands of actively supported plugins and themes with breathtaking complexity are available for very small sums, and WordPress is the platform which keeps these extensions playing well together. That said, WordPress is too powerful for some clients or would exceed some client budgets. Drupal is monstrous to implement, terrible to use, frustrating to modify mid-build, and is far outside the realm of self-management by clients, requiring an on-call development house handles even minor changes. There is nearly no situation I would recommend using Drupal.

Return on Investment

3dcart

  • 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

Weebly

  • I can build two nearly identical sites, one on Weebly and one on the market leader CMS, and the difference in build time is staggering. Weebly takes approximately 5% as long to build.
  • As far as I know, Weebly servers have not gone down once in five years. Surely they must have, but it has never been reported. The uptime and security are magnificent, which means I never get angry calls from clients. That counts for a lot.
  • Servicing Weebly sites is much easier, faster, and less labor-intensive than the industry leading CMS, which means we can manage sites for lower-budget clients and still make a profit.
