Overall Satisfaction with OpenCart

We have developed websites for different clients and all of them are on OpenCart as it is a multi-store compatible e-commerce platform. It is used by our technical team as well as the cataloging team for product management and order management.
  • Easy setup and deployment.
  • Follows MVCL structure which is easy to understand.
  • 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.
  • At the time of starting a business, OpenCart helped us with easy setup and catalog management. We have stared and deployed e-commerce sites very easily.
  • The websites didn't look good at first (we modified later) and that impacted our business as our clients received a lot of orders.
One advantage iOpenCart has is that it is easy to install and learn. But in all other cases (mainly in security) less buggy platforms should be used.
It is well suited if you want to start online e-commerce quickly as it can be set up quickly and easily while giving you almost every basic requirement you need to start an e-commerce website.
