Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud)

With development of Audiences, OCC is particularly well suited for providing UTM and geographic based personalization. We are a relatively small company with just one designer, one front end developer and four merchandisers so there are limits to how granular we can get in using the tools. There are also extensive B2B services available that we do not use at all. For smaller companies, OCC, may be more horsepower than they need.

Squarespace

Squarespace is perfect for a small to midsize business that wants a website that's easy to manage all on their own. An enterprise level company should definitely look toward other platforms to meet their needs, but Squarespace can be a great fit for many other businesses. The decision should be based on the features and functionality you need. Many businesses just need a website that's reliable, simple, and professional

Pros

Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud)

  • OCC has internationalization capabilities and makes it easy to build multinational and multilingual online shops.
  • A business user can easily extend the catalog structure by adding new product attributes. They can also change the look and feel/design of the page without development.
  • It is easy to add new functionalities by creating some widgets which can be uploaded to the target environment. So it is very easy to extend the payment gateway and add new payment providers.
  • Release cycles are much shorter and less CRs are needed.

Squarespace

  • Very robust how-to and troubleshooting guides – if you're trying to do something specific, a quick google search will lead you to a writeup by Squarespace of exactly the issue you're trying to solve. Comparing this to competitors where you're more or less on your own, Squarespace makes you feel confident that you can make any change you'd want.
  • Well-designed template sites – you'd have to try very hard to create an ugly site when you've got such robust templates to work with. Plus design fundamentals like ample white space and color palettes are built in to the design process.
  • Lots of options – Squarespace has beautifully-designed add-ons that clients ask for (such as adding a dynamic map to their site which shows their shop's location). These options require no jury-rigging and dovetail with the design of the site.
  • Unbreakable web design – there is no way to break your site, unlike with competitors where you're trying to cobble together plug-ins to make your site function how you'd want it.

Cons

Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud)

  • Absence of an IDE - Changes that our developers make on their local IDEs have to be uploaded back to the Cloud, and vice-versa. It would be nice to make these edits/changes in real-time.
  • Pricing models need improvements - Pricing models are pretty harsh and probably out of the scope for medium-sized companies and smaller.
  • Slow transaction processing - Not something that happens very often, but there will be times where it takes over 10 seconds for a given transaction to be processed.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • The editing experience is VERY slow. Every time you switch in or out of an editor (page content, styles, etc), Squarespace takes 3-5 seconds to load, which is not a deal-breaker, but definitely annoying.
  • There's still no "real" way to set a background color on a given section. You can fake it by using a background image, which works, but what if you want a light background? Squarespace automatically makes the text white for any section, regardless of how bright the background is.
  • It's frustrating that Squarespace hasn't implemented some sort of variable system for fonts and colors. If you decide to change fonts or colors, you have to go around and update it in 50 million different places, which is a huge pain.

Oracle Commerce Cloud is definitely not my favorite platform to use, however our company has gotten very comfortable with the way our website operates using it so I do not see us switching to a different product any time soon. Over time, I’ve grown to have a love/hate relationship with this product, but as I learn more about what it offers I come to appreciate its functionality more

It's simple to use for someone who is really good with computers as well as those who are not. I've been using my personal squarespace for years and have also helped clients build a starting page which they are later able to manage theirselves.

Help is available directly from the back end and uses full sentence searching to find answers to questions others may have asked before. With a ton of articles and support questions documents, it is very likely that your question has been answered. If not each page has the ability to open a direct email to support. Each case has a number and can be followed. Responses are often quick and have links and directions clearly stated

Alternatives Considered

Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud)

We weighed a few different options, including adjusting our own custom solution, but ultimately chose OCC due to Oracle's backing and integration with other Oracle items, which we also acquired (ERP, project management, etc.). Really, it's about a stable ecosystem with a massive amount of resources behind it - we're confident that any issues we run into can either be easily fixed, or it's a large enough ecosystem with users that there's an acceptable workaround that someone already has found. AI integration out-of-the-box is pretty great, too.
Michael Weissberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

The ease of use was a massive plus in Squarespace's side. I have limited knowledge of HTML and web development. Squarespace won simply because of its user-friendliness and the low barrier to entry when it comes to creating a good looking website. Every alternative that I looked at was either more expensive or required more knowledge than I possessed.

Return on Investment

Oracle CX Commerce (formerly Oracle Commerce Cloud)

  • We were able to drive sales for one of our clients up by 50% over the course of a 6 month window by revamping their online web store with Oracle ATG.
  • Sharing data and communication improved greatly between legal/finance and marketing.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

Squarespace

  • My clients are very happy with the results they're getting from their websites.
  • They don't really manage the sites themselves, so can't really speak to the ease of use for them. However, I find it relatively easy to build good looking sites for them. This in turn makes it economical for them.
  • Making changes and updating their sites can be done relatively quickly. We can embed whatever elements they need, like video.
  • We can easily manage updates to their on-site SEO.
