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.

Wix

Wix is perfect for your small or freelancing business to display your product. It has the ability for multiple pages, image, and video hosting, as well as linking to other pages from images, to name a few. I wouldn’t recommend it for totally unique websites as there isn’t complete control over the design aspect, so any advanced designs you’re better off getting someone to code it for you from the ground up.

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.

  • Image hosting: seriously love that if you upload a reasonably sized image, it loads in a snap
  • Ease of design: I can design a website from the ground up pretty quickly just with a few clicks
  • Great templates: if you’re not very design-oriented, there are great defaults to get you started with to help develop ideas of your own.
  • No coding necessary: you don’t need to code to create a great looking site.

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.

  • When you buy it, it initially charges you for the year; this is scary. You DO have an option to pay monthly but it is quite discreet, down below on the selection page. Be aware of that.
  • The menus, even though easy to use, could be less clunky.
  • If you don't pay a lot of attention to that, when you switch the design to mobile it loses some significant quality.

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.

We will definitely renew Wix. The ability to completely control our website has been invaluable to us. We will maintain this service as long as we are an incorporated organization, we've tried several other software options and this has been the best solution by far for all of our needs.

Wix is quite easy especially if you use pre-made templates. Getting into the advanced editor can be trickier but still much easier than manual site-building.

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

Wix

Wix has the best WYSIWYG design method, since all others we tried showed not to reach anywhere near what our intentions towards the design were. It doesn't provide the best pricing if compared to, let's say, WordPress, but then again it fulfills basically everything we expected in terms of design and functionality.

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

Wix

  • Wix will be our main point of publishing, so it is virtually indispensable for us.
  • Since we would have half of our business cut out without it, I'd say it is responsible for 50% of our productivity.
  • It did not present any negative points to our business.
