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.

I would recommend Wix 100%, due to the fact that the marketing strategy that it gives to the customer makes you want to register for such a great site. It also has a great user experience, without putting difficulties on the site creation process. Wix really knows what the user wants.

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

Wix

  • The most important strength of Wix is its simplicity and intuitive interface. Wix is, by far, the best web CMS that I've ever used because it's easier to navigate and understand than other CMS platforms. Once you start building your site, there are pop-ups explaining what to do next until your entire site is filled with content. Because it's so easy to get started, I've completed websites on the same day that I started them, which makes marketing managers and directors extremely surprised and excited.
  • Wix's design and theme options are the best I've seen. When using other CMS platforms, I've had a difficult time finding themes that fit the way that I want to organize the content on my website. I felt restricted because the themes were not editable. Wix, however, allows users to edit themes as much as they want. The platform will also take the information that you've already plugged into the site and find a theme that works, choose the best fonts, and even implement color schemes. Wix really gives you control over the way your site is organized but also provides a "hands-off" route for people who don't want to be too heavily involved in the design process. There are options for any and all levels of experience and involvement.
  • Wix has an option to add a contributor to a website, which I also have not seen on any other CMS platforms. In most cases, CMS users would need to create several logins to get their colleagues or partners to edit the site. But with Wix, I can have my own account with both personal and professional sites - and invite colleagues to edit a specific website without seeing anything else. It's similar to having a Google Drive of websites. I can see all of my Wix websites, but colleagues can only see or edit the websites that I invite them to.

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

Wix

  • Wix's design features can be a curse as much as a blessing. It's tempting to use animation and overdo it on big images but they'll kill page load time and at a certain point become detrimental to usability.
  • Wix code is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to dive into the world of Javascript and relational databases. Not as "out-of-the-box" as their marketing would like you to believe. Still, powerful though.
  • On certain things, such as buttons for example, they need to make them more style-based. Each button on the site is essentially custom designed by you. So if you decide you want the button style different, you have to manually redesign it for every instance on the site. No universal CSS change for that.

We will definitely renew Wix. The ability to completely control our website has been invaluable to us. We will maintain this service as long as we are an incorporated organization, we've tried several other software options and this has been the best solution by far for all of our needs.

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.

Great customization, but a pain to backtrack. They recently added the ability to set fonts etc as headings, title, body etc, but if you did not begin your build with these presets you are screwed if you ever try to change font/ colors/layout etc.

Not complex at all. It teaches you how to use their platform in a dynamic way. Each tutorial offers an explanation that can be reviewed later on. The connection speed of a web page has been smooth so far, with no major problems regarding this subject. Overall, Wix can manage 10+ pages with great connection speed.

Like I said before, Wix is great for more basic and straight-forward websites that don't need a lot of complexity. However, if you are looking to get a little more complex with your website, WordPress is better because it is a more in-depth platform which you can do a lot more with and choose from a lot more add-on programs to help achieve the goal you're looking to get to.

I give this rating to Wix because it's a great content creator. It has a great platform and also offers great customer service. If you encounter any technical issues, with Wix you will find a solution. For premium members or domain holders, this is the same as for Trial members or non-domain holders.

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
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • I’ve had the opportunity to freelance a considerable amount of times thanks to having an accessible and attractive Wix site
  • I’ve relied quite heavily on Wix to communicate my work to potential clients; without it, it would have been considerably harder to push my portfolio
  • Purchasing a Wix domain is very important to remove the unsightly banner ad at the top of your page, which may affect the overall aesthetic of the site and affect the perception of clients, as it has done for me.
