Likelihood to Recommend

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

For quickly setting up a most intuitive online marketplace, CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is the best one. The software is very well suited for those who have some basic knowledge about backend customization, installation, server setup, proper server configuration etc. Though I'm sure the support team will get you up and running. Only few third-party service providers are very professional, provide honest service and will help you to run your business smoothly. I would highly recommend to use CS-Cart Multi-Vendor.

Ecwid

I think Ecwid is well suited for businesses who are dealing with less than typical e-commerce circumstances and need well rounded service that can serve a wide range of purposes. Less appropriate perhaps for large companies who already are very established.

Pros

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

  • Quick and easy set up of a multi-vendor marketplace
  • Very easy-to-use page designer
  • Huge marketplace of add-ons to cover pretty much anything you need
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ecwid

  • Economical - Choose the plan that is right for your business
  • Flexible - There are many nice features to tailor the shopping cart to your business and they provide many integrations with other softwares
  • Intuitive - I don't feel overwhelmed by all of the options, but there are enough

Cons

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

  • The high cost of the platform itself and plugins.
  • Unavailability of the mobile application in the basic version of the platform.
  • Relatively difficult process of installing updates if you are new to IT.
Azat Seyitmuhammedov | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ecwid

  • Ecwid may have too many features and functions for basic users like us. The level of customization and features available are extensive and it can be confusing at time. Perhaps a more basic configuration option could be available along with an advanced version.
  • I would like to be able to create a storefront on Ecwid beyond the free level without having to pay for it until we are ready to launch the site live. Right now if you want to add over 10 products you have to upgrade to a higher level, even if you are still developing the site and not having any visitors.

The software consists of most of all e-commerce related features. Also, there are plenty of third party addons are available in the market which can improve our business. There are a lot of powerful themes available in the cs cart market which improve the look and feel on the front store.If CS-cart adjusted the price on their software license cost, controlling the third party addon cost and provide more freelancers with cheaper hourly rate for the customization on the cs-cart multi vendor software, the cs-cart company can be a master among other e-commerce software companies in the world.

Easy for most of the features you'll be using on a daily basis. However more advanced features can take a while to find which can be a tad frustrating.

inside of the support subscription, they give me all the time a fast answer and you can ask in a community forum also other users. But i miss a free support/chat like other solutions.

I have always received the support I need in a timely manner. I enjoy receiving emails every week on trending business topics and new suggestions. They often serve as a reminder for me to include new e-commerce tools into our strategy. And I've always had great experiences with reaching out to the support team with specific questions.

Mostly extremely easy to implement, both back-end logic as well as styling. Great addon marketplace helped, particularly around payment options.

Ecwid

Ecwid was promoted via our appointed developer. It was not our first choice. The back end system works well and is easy to navigate and understand. Although we opted to use WooCommerce because of the flexibility it offers.

Return on Investment

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

  • Positive impact in learning to set up a shopping cart
  • ROI is questionable, as we are still building our business model
  • Positive impact on our business model and direction

Ecwid

  • Ecwid allowed me to take down my antiquated site and use Wix, which was more economical and flexible for me
  • Ecwid's integration with Helpful Crowd was a simply and economical option to create product reviews. Very little work for me.
  • Have used some of the marketing integrations and not sure if they really work or help
