Apptha Marketplace has some good features, like data input through photos (happens quickly as well), but the interface on the website makes the process more confusing than it needs to be.

I think WebSphere Commerce is well suited for customers looking to sell products online that need robustness and scalability as a priority. It provides a complete order cycle out of the box, or you can integrate with your existing order fulfillment. Online shopping models like digital subscriptions or a marketplace are not well suited as it requires a lot of customization

  • Websphere commerce provides efficient contract based pricing. Contract based pricing greatly helps in handling prices for different business
  • Catalog filtering is one other strength of websphere commerce, as it helps to filter the show only those products that the customer is entitled to
  • Extended site model is one other strength of WCS as it greatly helps in having multiple e-commerce sites for different demographics, for branding etc

Cons

  • The connection between the contact and "opportunity" is vague and difficult to initially understand. Perhaps each contact should simply have a comprehensive list called "measurable actions" which includes all calls, emails, voicemails, conversations, etc. to be cataloged.

  • Promotion module customizations needs to more easy
  • Grouping of products based on the shipping methods/shipping dates etc functionality needs to be added

We have the manpower resources to work in WebSphere Commerce. It is not very easy to get good WebSphere Commerce resources.

Compared to some other software that our clients have considered, a lot of them choose WebSphere Commerce because of the ability to scale easily. Some of our customers are coming from a PHP based ecommerce platform that doesn't allow them to scale up and they're hitting the limit of their ecommerce system
