OpenCart is the easy option for e-commerce solutions

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We use OpenCart for retail stores as well as wholesale (B2B) stores. Using the native functionality and OCMOD we can make OpenCart behave like a Swiss Army knife, from Retail store to Wholesale store. This is buying as a lot of time, because choosing another platform or writing a new one for the purpose of a wholesale store would be time consuming, and let's not talk about the time that customers will need to adjust the get trained to use their wholesale store on top of the retail store. So, using the same technology and habits of coding functionality and the same User Experience and User Interface buys us a lot of time of development, training and setting up.

Vorteile:

As a developer, I like the Model-View-Controller design pattern, it's easy to seperate things and understand the code, as well as reuse different controllers or models through the development of new extensions, as a result it's easy to make what it looks like native extensions, without breaking the software functionality if you follow the coding standards already used by the OpenCart developers. I think that the OCMOD system is the most intelligent way to extend OpenCart's functionality and I admire the developer who invented it. As for the UI, it's easy to use because all sections are seperated and grouped on the left column menu. Moving from other platforms to Opencart or moving from older OpenCart versions to newers is very easy especially from v2 to v3. From a user's point of view, OpenCart is like using an app, it's that easy. Labels and hints make it easier for new users to adapt as well as new customers to buy.

Nachteile:

Even though OpenCart is stable since the beginning, I think we need more functionality that other platforms are having and would be nice if we could move them to OpenCart too. Not major functionality, but different minor things that will improve the workflow of an e-commerce owner, such as a summary page that will show products missing images, products with broken images, categories with no products, products with no descriptions or products missing translations etc. I think in the era of Javascript it would be nice if we could convert some pages that the administrator spends a lot of time to AJAX functionality or even Single Page Application so that we can make more and massively in less time. Although, that would break some 3rd party extensions obviously.

Awesome for Startups, Small Businesses and Medium Size Businesses

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, my experience with OpenCart has been very good throughout the years as it is one of the e-commerce software solutions that I can install and maintain without having to worry about it unexpectedly breaking in between periods of maintenance.

Vorteile:

One of the things that I like the most about OpenCart is the multitude of options available for tailoring it towards my business needs. I have found that many of the modules and extensions that other e-commerce software solutions charge for are included out of the box with OpenCart and for free. For the extensions that are not included out of the box, they can usually be found in the OpenCart marketplace either for free or for a nominal price that allows even startups to realize a profit on their business even faster.

Nachteile:

One of the things that I like the least about this software is the filter function for products in the admin area. Rather than allowing for products to be filtered by a single identifying keyword within a title, you have to remember the beginning word of the title and continue to add keywords in order to help filter down to a manageable number of products fitting the criteria you are looking for.

Simple and cheap e-shop system for small e-shops without marketing support.

3,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: This product works well for my low and middle class e-shops which offer limited number of products, mostly in the same category, with a smaller budget for running and promotion.
For the more advanced needs, this system cannot offer enough functions and there is not enough resources for customers.
Free version is too simple. For some results, paid themes and plugins are needed. Then e-shop may generate some income.

Vorteile:

OpenCart is not as demanding as other e-shops in terms of resources. It doesn't use server sources as high as other apps. You can run it on standard on a shared hosting. There is fairly simple interface so it is easy to setup a shop, very simplified. It can be used by beginners. Simple UI on the back-end and fairly descent front-end makes it easy to use. Easy backup.

Nachteile:

Very hard to update or modify. It can just break down and not work even if you roll out backup of the previously working site. SEO is terrible even with paid plugins. To make addresses and descriptions work is so hard. Never made it to work completely as it would on standard shops Magento, or Wordpress. One-page shopping is not working well even with paid plugins. Marketing options are very limited and hard to find, such as follow up emails, up-sell, cross-sell, promo codes, tracking. E-shop are used for selling primarily so one would need to offer as much as possible to clients, similar products, suggested products, to give reward points and to send customized offers. Discounting options are not working well in case client changes anything or finish shopping in a few steps. (75% of shopping carts with free shipping lose their function and have to be edited manually) There are no easy integrations, such as Zappier, MailChimp, login via social network accounts etc.

OpenCart the way to go

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have had a tremendous experience... I can build my website the way I want, and once I pay for a OpenCart plugin, or theme, I add it to my box of tools that I can permanently use on any of my other sites. The initial setup can be a little daunting, but once you've built your first site, it's fantastic. The plugins and themes are very well priced, and the support is great. OpenCart have addressed previous security flaws in their software, and https://www.tinfoilsecurity.com/ scanned my site and gave it a clean bill of health. I recommend the 'Pavilion - Responsive OpenCart Theme by ThemeBurn | ThemeForest' as you do not need to know how to write a single line of code. It's responsive (re scales automatically) , so you do not have to worry about how it will look on a pc or mobile phone, and you can do almost anything you can think off. Granted that there is a HUGE learning curve, but it gets better as you learn how to work with the theme.

Vorteile:

You control everything, and you can find plugins to add functionality you do not have... It is great if you want full control, and I have never found there is something I want that I cannot do without a plugin or a tweak here and there. Support is great and often the developers who create the plugins will help you install the plugin for free after you buy it. They normally even do small tweaks for free, and add extra functionality at a minimal cost. Yes, there are many ready built eCommerce platforms like shopify and squarspace, but you will have to pay a monthly hosting fee, including monthly plugin rental. If I could buy a plugin once off on shopify, I would perhaps reconsider, but most plugins are rental only. Shopify has a lot of features, but it does not have everything most people need. So you going to end up renting a lot of extra plugins. Take 10 different plugins on shopify, at a monthly cost of approx $20 each, and you 're going to pay $200 on top of your shopify costs. It all adds up. Bottom line, if you do not mind a learning curve, and you want to keep costs down in the long run, along with full control, OpenCart is the way to go!

Nachteile:

Like most software, there is a learning curve. It can be painful all at once, but the more you use OpenCart, the better it gets.

The themes are good and the functionality is great.Their Model-View-Controller(MVC) makes development way cooler as one can analyze and edit code easily. Upgrades are easy to implement. It is not also resource hungry as other e-shops.It is also easy to backup.Built in extensions are also easy to implement and help in making a powerful e-store.

Nachteile:

It is a bit difficult to use if you are a beginner. Fewer plugins as compared to other systems.The bugs are a bit difficult to work on.The filtering of products is a problem

Best eCommerce Product

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Vorteile:

All modules can be configured and if there is a module that I have a problem with, I can intervene with php. In addition, many hosting companies have ready-made opencart services and this makes my job easier. The options in the cargo module are very suitable for our country, for example the "pay at the door" option. Being open source and free is one of the features that attracts me. Lastly, their reports are very useful to me. Because it is very diverse and understandable

Nachteile:

A little weak on SEO. Pages can have multiple URL addresses at the time of design. To prevent this, I need to develop with PHP.

Ease of Use

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: OpenCart works well for small businesses whose product availability are limited. It can't offer enough resources for customers in large businesses as it should. It has a free version that is too easy to operate, paid plugins are needed to generate some incomes. OpenCart has so many features that are included in it's default set-up, themes and lots of add-ons. I recommend OpenCart for small businesses if they're looking to boost sales.

Vorteile:

It's very flexible and easy to customize' It's easy to understand and operate. Good marketplace to buy extensions for good prices. OpenCart is very affordable for all business sizes. Easy installation and setup. It has a continues upgrade in system features.

Nachteile:

It has a laborious upgrade process. It has limited functionality back-end search and filters. It has limited and hard to find marketing functionalities.

Few things to know about OpenCart

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: If you are a beginner then you must try OpenCart to bring your business online and generate revenue.

Vorteile:

1. It is an open source ecommerce development platform which allows bringing small scale as well as medium scale businesses online within just few clicks. 2. It provides all the basic features to run and organize an effective online store which can be used easily and doesn't require much of technical expertise.

Nachteile:

1. Being an open source platform it is more likely to be vulnerable from external threats such as code injection and similar. 2. Although it provides all the basic features but sometimes I feel like it lacks a bit of features such as event management application as well as it doesn't provide access to its code files in order to build one.

Want to open basic ecommerce platform qucikly?

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

If you have even a modicum of coding knowledge and want to launch an ecommerce platform in a short amount of time, Open Cart is a great base for beginners. As a coder I prefer writing custom ecommerce platforms. But, some clients don't want to spend the time or money waiting for a custom platform. Thise customers get Open Cart. Plain and simple, this software is my go to base to help clients launch their store in the most time and cost effective manner.

Nachteile:

Installing updates is a bit of a challenge. I recommend waiting a few months after each software update so their coders can work out any bugs and connectivity issues.

For the amateur and the professional

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: OpenCart is regarded as quite the savior for newcomers to the e-commerce industry - this was (is) at least the case for me. The system gives you a solution that is ready-to-use straight out of the box. Through the admin panel, you can change numerous settings including advanced banner setup, pages setup, payments, categories and the lot. If you are curious on how to change the code and customize it exactly to fit your needs, the files are neatly organized in your FTP program so that a newcomer will intuitively know which files changes what. This also leads me to the real beauty of OpenCart - the community and the extension store. The community is superb. If you have any issues or obstacles on your way learning programming and OpenCart, the forum will answer all your questions and lead you on your way. If you do not want to program or design yourself, you can utilize the extension store which is filled with high-quality solutions that you can easily install through your admin panel. I have used OpenCart for years, and I can't see anything equally easy-to-use-yet-highly-advanced that is going to replace it anytime soon. Amateur or pro - just try it, you'll like it. Did I also mention that it is free(!)?

Vorteile:

The flexibility and the customization while still being easy to use and understand. It is also mobile friendly.

Nachteile:

The extension market - while still providing a whole lot of quality solutions - is still suffering from some low-quality publishers as well as duplicators who are stealing from others. More policing is needed.

Great for teamwork!

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I am self-employed, dealing with only one aspect of the company that I am contracted with, but this application streamlines all of the work neatly into order if used properly. It could be really overwhelming to a single person, but learning a few steps at a time is completely doable. The application itself has always worked reliably.

Vorteile:

Opencart is great for teamwork and order processing/organization. You can customize this application to your needs.

Nachteile:

I do a lot of job submissions, and copy-pasting all the details out of OpenCart slows me down, especially when it comes to transferring customer shipping details. If an order is improperly labeled by anyone in the team, it can be hard to track down. I would love to see a tab that shows most recent job changes in order to find things recently mis-labeled.

A good CMS for an online store

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

On this platform, I was making my first online store. Having learned the order of prices, I refused the services of specialists and decided to do everything myself. The project is still working and OpenCart has become my reliable assistant. The main thing that I want to note, the system is easy to learn and free (there is a paid version, but this one will be enough for your eyes to start).

Nachteile:

Over time, the functionality of the free version begins to be missed. As they say, hunger comes with eating.

The first online store on the free engine

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

This platform simply saved me at a time when I was still a student, I was studying Web technologies and I did not have the money for a paid engine. Having considered the options, I decided to stop at creating an online store. Maximally saving at the start, I soon learned to bring projects to the international level.

Nachteile:

Free version is a good solution at the initial stage, when you just go through training. But, starting a serious project, it is not even worth considering as an option.

OpenCart - simple and convenient CMS

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

If you are creating your online store, then, in my opinion, OpenCart is a convenient and simple platform for these needs. A simple store can be created in just 10 minutes, you will only have to add the goods and all. What you like, is the speed of the sites on this engine. Pages open instantly, the goods are loaded very quickly and conveniently.

Nachteile:

I had problems only with the addition of pictures of goods. Rather, it was not a problem, but just an inconvenience, since the images had to be added to the server first.

Simple operation

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like that the admin panel is as simple as possible. I develop html pages in Sublime Text and just transfer them to the hosting like regular files. No additional parameters are required.

Nachteile:

By default, the engine creates copies of pages. This negatively affects SEO promotion. Our company receives traffic to pages from social networks and the main site, but I would never do a page on OpenCart if I needed organic traffic.
