Overall Satisfaction with OpenCart

E-commerce shops made with OpenCart look professional. Its very scalable, as it is an open source project, so you can easily change features according to need. You can also contribute to OpenCart forums and make money by building modules and selling them to public OpenCart users. We have built many modules and features according to our clients' needs. Best part about OpenCart is it is very easy to learn and work on it. It just uses an MVC module.
  • It uses an MVC module that is easy to learn.
  • Can change features and build modules according to needs. Many modules are available on the internet, and you can purchase them and install in OpenCart
  • You can integrate a number of different design themes to give your site its own distinctive look.
  • Unlimited categories for products, which are easy to upload.
  • Multiple Language support
  • It's free
  • Sometimes developer skill is required to work on admin module.
  • Add-on modules are often necessary, and you need to purchase them separately
  • Hard to update it to new versions, and it is constantly updating
  • Though it is smooth to use, it works on a read-edit-delete system. Deleting data is very critical.
  • 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.
Some of the products available on the market are cheap, but they are not as easily to use or understand as OpenCart. Many are also not open source products, so you need to buy. You can purchase modules for OpenCart. Support is also easily available for OpenCart in the OpenCart forum. The admin portal of OpenCart is also more advanced than any other product out there.
OpenCart is well suited for multiple client e-commerce website building, with unlimited categories for products. It's not suited for data management, very large queries that take a lot of time to load, and those who lack the developer skills to administer OpenCart.
