3dcart

3dcart is well suited to getting a site up and running quickly with shopping cart capabilities. The merchant account set up was easy and there are inventory and shipping capabilities, as well. It is a very powerful tool for a small business without full time IT support on staff. While I did not have many products, it seemed like a merchant with a large inventory would have to spend a great deal of time on setting up the store

WooCommerce

Here's a few scenarios where we use WooCommerce in addition to a regular online store: 1) Participant Registration for fundraising events. One event has about 200 participants annually, and we offer a single day ticket. In the past, we have also offered custom jerseys on the site as well. This works pretty well for us and, as I mentioned, we are able to keep our service fees in house. 2) E-learning. Two clients of ours are using WooCommerce to handle the membership/purchase of online training products. There is quite a bit of additional set up to connect with Learndash and Infusionsoft, but once connected, works quite well

Pros

  • Strong shopping cart capabilities, with all types of promotions and discounting capabilities. Easy to set up the promotion and implement the campaign.
  • Integration with our email provider to be able to segment buyers based on timing of purchase.
  • Easy to use blog, was able to set up each post simply and create SEO/Meta tags associated with each post.
  • Products set up was easy and there are options for categories and classes to make setting up the store easy.
  • Easy to use for someone with no programming skills.
  • WooCommerce allows an expedient eCommerce implementation which allows for third-party payment processing gateways and reliable email confirmations to all parties.
  • WooCommerce enables multi-vendor platforms like eBay to be created in a matter of hours.
  • WooCommerce lets users set up dropship companies very rapidly.
  • WooCommerce is a centralized platform which has literally thousands of plugins available to extend its functionality in any way you can imagine.

Cons

  • Using images on the site and in the blog was a cumbersome process. The upload was easy enough, but finding and using the image after upload was terrible. The navigation of the images was difficult and there were no sort functions.
  • For a simple site without the need for a log in admin or shipping, these functions and capabilities were not easily hidden or removed. You needed to have a programmer go into the code to remove them. For a tool like 3dcart, it seemed to be something they could have taken care of with check boxes in the settings.
  • While expected, the templates available were very basic and simple. To enhance the look of your site, you will need a programmer or pay for the premium templates.
  • Some of the major extensions, like Memberships, have significant room for improvement regarding what controls are in place. Specifically, Memberships cannot grant/block access to content from users, only from categories and tags.
  • Email customization is a major pain. Either ship with MailChimp integration or beef up the email customization options.

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.

Our site is working exceptionally well, it's easy to use, and works well for our clients. There's no reason to change anything.

I gave it lots of points for being a simple product that instantly gives you a store. Very intuitive and simple for the client to update or implement. Loses LOTS of points when you want to do anything besides just sell stuff (coupons, etc) then it makes you pay big money for the add-ons and makes it difficult and time-intensive to develop your own.

Alternatives Considered

Selected 3DCart based on price point and ease of getting started. Gave a two week free trial to make sure I could get it set up. Seemed easier than other options and had room to grow if I need more capabilities. It also integrated with QuckBooks, FaceBook and Auth.net which were all part of the package right from the start.
Much easier to set up than any other basket I have used which makes it my first choice - it also goes straight into a WordPress site so can easily be added to a blog that is already set up. The costs are only what additions you have so it is easy to budget for as well.

Return on Investment

  • Enhanced customer service with ticket system.
  • Was able to quickly set up shop and get started on the web.
  • We improved our Conversion Rate by 200% by switching. This is not only because we switched: it's because of the amount of changes and personalization we were able to make for our particular industry.
  • We improved our landing pages and it's much easier to maintain (via Visual Composer and Slider Revolution) compared to our previous Magento.
  • We have been able to make changes MUCH faster. In a day or two we revamped our product listing page, we added banners across the whole site, we changed our checkout... you get the point.
