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.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce is well suited for smaller companies looking to start selling their products and services online. We mainly sell apparel using WooCommerce, and the reason why we love it is using the global add-on feature. With this, you can specify size, color, style, etc. for specific product categories. Then when you create those products, all of the options are automatically applied to the product based on the category you put it in.

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.

WooCommerce

  • WooCommerce pages are easy to customize and are optimized for mobile.
  • Ability to create global add-ons for specific product categories.
  • Adding additional plugins to optimize the site is generally affordable and can usually be done without a developer.
  • There's no cost to get started.

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.

WooCommerce

  • The search function is weak. By default, it only searches the product title, not SKU, description, etc.
  • You have to use a third-party plug-in to easily import products in bulk. It would be nice if that was in the WooCommerce core.
  • Small thing, but I'd like to be able to easily customize the columns in the back-end product listing; to be able to pick and choose which information shows for each product, including custom fields.

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.

Easy to set up. Easy to use. Very low investment upfront. The investment is basically the cost of hiring someone to build the website, hosting, and any plugins necessary.

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

3dcart

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

WooCommerce

WooCommerce sits in a nice sweet spot between hosted e-commerce solutions where you have to give up some control in exchange for easy-of-use (like Shopify, Squarespace) and larger more enterprise solutions that are endlessly customizable but too complex for most merchatns needs (like Magento). I love WooCommerce because I love WordPress. There is a very large community of developers that support the core products and thousands of plugins that can extend the functionality. So if WooCommerce doesn't do exactly what you had hoped, there is a good chance you can find a free or inexpensive plug-in to make it happen

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

WooCommerce

  • I currently have not had a lot of ROI from using WooCommerce
  • While it is easy to set up, it doesn't handle things like marketing, emails, or promotion to build up sales
  • It can easily integrate with most email marketing, making follow-up emails easy to set up.
