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 can be recommended for small and medium scale online stores. Especially for the existing WordPress users. But for sites that need a lot of security, WooCommerce won't be a cost-effective and easy to manage platform for e-commerce. WooCommerce is a great solution for creating digital and physical product stores, but having a good web hosting provider is the main thing to manage a hassle-free online store.

Pros

  • 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 is great because it is easy to set up, and easy for us to help our clients manage their products. Set up is usually less than a day, and we can get a handful of products up and configured in the first week. Plus, we are able to duplicate existing products, saving us time.
  • WooCommerce has a very detailed, robust support manual to help us get started and add products to the site.
  • There are numerous plugins available to enhance WooCommerce. In particular, a couple of plugins allow for further customization of the product page layout, colors and titles. Other plugins enhance the shopping cart experience.
  • WooCommerce follows the Wordpress structure of tags and categories, ensuring we will have an easy time organizing products.

Cons

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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