Klarna Checkout

Klarna is great for any retailer who is looking to offer payment options to their customers. It is primarily a resource for retailers, but probably not a good tool for people who work in different kinds of sales departments.

Spree

Spree is a great solution if you have a highly customized business idea and need a very robust eCommerce solution to support your very creative and detailed sales methods. Because it's an open source platform, there are a ton of ways that his platform can be customized to meet virtually any business idea that you can dream up. With that said, the platform requires dedicated development support to make sure everything is stable and supported at all times.

Pros

Klarna Checkout

  • Flexible payment option.
  • Easy to navigate the back end.
Nikki Hansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Spree

  • Quick and easy access, nice interface when logging in.
  • Access to customer's info, easy to change user names and passwords when issues arise with login.
  • Easy to use for the most part - a lot of ways to search for information regarding customer's info.
Colin Darcy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Klarna Checkout

  • Customer support is terrible, getting an agent who fully comprehends the issue or who has any power to help is near impossible.
Nikki Hansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Spree

  • For the ATS portion, ability to download applicants would be helpful
  • We have to use our developers to change some simple things on the web format

Spree

I don't want to knock other products but let's say that the more famous shopping carts, although they have great functionality off the peg, are limited in terms of branding ability and further customisation. Invariably you get a site which looks and feels like many others. This will suit many companies as a low cost option which is very competent. However the fully customisable front end that we need, and will continue to develop, is not possible with these turn-key solutions.

Return on Investment

Klarna Checkout

  • They take a fee, larger than other systems do, so I do lose some money there.
  • I make more sales than I would without the payment option through Klarna.
Nikki Hansen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Spree

  • Decent plugin ecosystem
  • Easily add and manage new products
