OpenCart

OpenCart is best suited for business owners looking to sell their products online. Building an OpenCart website requires no or minimal coding knowledge. Being a self-hosted system, it is not recommended for people who have no hosting plan or have no experience in hosting websites so it would be better to go with another platform that is hosted elsewhere.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce is a great platform to create an inexpensive if not free online store if you have the time to learn about it and configure it well. It is especially a great online store platform if you already are experienced using Wordpress since it incorporates so well into it. There are also many great plugins to help you integrate parts of your store into your other content pieces on your WordPress website.

Pros

OpenCart

  • OpenCart is well suited in cases where our eCommerce web development clients want a very specific design with very specific shopping cart functionalities.
  • OpenCart is very flexible in its native ability to work with a wide variety of payment processors and payment gateways.
  • OpenCart makes it both fast and easy to setup and configure a new shopping cart website, especially if you use one of the pre-made templates.
.Kim Murphy | TrustRadius Reviewer

WooCommerce

  • WooCommerce pages are easy to customize and are optimized for mobile.
  • Ability to create global add-ons for specific product categories.
  • Adding additional plugins to optimize the site is generally affordable and can usually be done without a developer.
  • There's no cost to get started.
Brian Halstrom | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

OpenCart

  • It's a very buggy platform. Although OpenCart developers release new versions time to time after fixing bugs every version of OpenCart has a different type of bug.
  • It should increase the security of the platform.

WooCommerce

  • Reliance on meta table for storing and accessing product and order data. (Coming soon)
  • Better reporting interface. (Coming soon)
  • Option to more easily choose between multi-page or single page cart/checkout.
  • Auto refresh the price totals on cart page when quantity changes using AJAX.
  • Show “-” and “+” buttons around the quantity field.
  • Show confirmation before user changes quantity to zero.

Despite very rare glitches, more connected to an excessive number of plugins, that affect the speed of the site, we are extremely satisfied with the platform, the ability to import and export products, even though we just export them, as we have our proprietary system for updating inventories. We love the ease of upgrading, enhancing, innovating, and the freedom we have to do whatever we want, which is a plus, when you consider Shopify can take down your whole store as they please, if they think you aren't abiding to their TOS or their ever changing set of rules.

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

OpenCart

Honestly, when consulting my clients, I would always recommend WooCommerce over OpenCart. Although I've had clients that had existing OpenCart websites and they were fairly happy with them, making additions/changes/customizations from a developer standpoint was not the easiest compared to other systems. For very large shops, I always recommend Magento over anything else.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce stacks up very nicely. While there is a learning curve involved, it more than makes up for the challenge when it comes to cost. You won't find yourself spending money each month to keep your site live or pay for your ecommerce platform like you do with others. Once you have WooCommerce installed (for free) you technically do not need to pay anything unless you plan on scaling up and adding new functionality. We now use WooCommerce for all of our ecommerce sites and we have saved a lot of money over competitors.

Return on Investment

OpenCart

  • Clients loves the design which is easy to integrate to; you can integrate multiple themes.
  • Overall user experience is good, so number of conversions is good.

WooCommerce

  • I currently have not had a lot of ROI from using WooCommerce
  • While it is easy to set up, it doesn't handle things like marketing, emails, or promotion to build up sales
  • It can easily integrate with most email marketing, making follow-up emails easy to set up.
