Likelihood to Recommend

Sana Commerce

Its suited more for B2B-focused or mid-size companies that want to have a more robust platform for their eCommerce and don't want to invest that much (like the case of Magento and other big names).If you want to make constant UX and design enhancements and tests, you'll have a couple of headaches. It's not that bad but; you wont be able to do it all without customizing and spending good money on it.

X-Cart

X-cart uses Smarty Templates in a PHP environment which means there are many developers who could probably pick it up relatively quickly to provide new features. The smarty template engine is very robust and well documented, and the cost of x-cart is very low which makes it easy for anyone to get started with their e-commerce business.It is a really great e-commerce software and suitable for every business. I actually cannot find any serious objection to what it does. They regularly update it, add new features, fix flaws, offer support. The software itself offers many integrations for shipping and payments, everything you need for sales. Although it covers many things, there will always be something missing, because many things happen in between customer visit and final delivery. Therefore, if you plan to expand your business, also plan to expand your X-Cart - but do not worry, it won't be hard.

Pros

Sana Commerce

  • Quote Workflow--pretty simple and easy to understand and implement
  • Easy-to-learn admin tools
  • Very flexible/customizable initial configuration
Esteban Delgado | TrustRadius Reviewer

X-Cart

  • For everyone. From small to huge business you get everything out of box. Just setup company details, payment and shipping methods and you are ready to go.
  • Upgradable. There are many plugins one can integrate with X-Cart. Over time, many of them became part of the software, and you are one click away to enable them.
  • Well organized code. It uses Smarty template engine, which I find great, specially for debugging (famous Webmaster mode).

Cons

Sana Commerce

  • The service could be much better. It's expensive and hard to monitor because they only check cases twice a week (if you don't have a pre-plan).
  • The language and different time schedules have been an issue for tech problems. They're in Holland and Ukraine and we're in Mexico, and is really hard to find developers who know the platform to hire as an extra resource.
  • You can't import SKUS to populate a landing page programmatically.
Esteban Delgado | TrustRadius Reviewer

X-Cart

  • Creating new plugins the way X-Cart wants is maybe not complicated, but hard to implement because there are no hooks. One has to manually change each file. This is similar to patching the core and therefore one has to know basics of web development.
  • Even if you get everything styled correctly with base skin, there is a bunch of unused styles you have to cope with. Start skin should be much cleaner. You may find thousands excess lines of code.

Return on Investment

Sana Commerce

  • The ROI was 18% more than expected
  • Our traffic has increased by 250%
  • Some of our clients think our site is too complex
Esteban Delgado | TrustRadius Reviewer

X-Cart

  • Flexibility in presentation as well as functionality
  • Full open source software allows for unlimited possibilities with the store function, though some developers who create modules do encode their modules which have errors in their code which therefore can't be fixed
  • A fully functional professional level application at a fraction of the cost of similar applications such as magento.
