Overall Satisfaction with OpenCart

Our e-commerce website is built using OpenCart open-source platform. It is packed with tons of extensions and it is easy to implement and use. It has a robust administrator dashboard that gives you complete insights about orders, customers, and many more. OpenCart also supports multivendor stores that you can manage from a single interface. Product options and attributes are easily manageable and easy to configure. And on top of all this OpenCart is free and can be self-hosted on your own servers!
  • The platform is free
  • Plenty of extensions and third-party modules
  • Highly customizable
  • Open-source platform used by thousands stores worldwide
  • Sometimes hard to customize
  • Limited marketing features
  • Lacks SEO functionalities
  • Global online presence
  • Targeting new markets
  • Selling products online
Both platforms are feature-rich. I chose OpenCart because I found a theme that suits me. Plus there were many third-party extensions that I was interested in and they can be integrated with 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.
