Bigcartel vs Opencart vs Everything Else

Posted by on May 3, 2010 in blog | One Comment

At Double Dragon Studios I am always trying to find the best content management system to use. It is pretty nerdy how I get so excited sometimes when something new comes out. So far in doing all my research I have found two e-commerce carts that I love. Those are Bigcartel and Opencart

Bigcartel

website: bigcartel.com

price

  • $10 a month for up to 25 products and 3 images per product
  • $20 a month for up to 100 products and 5 images per product

ease of use

  • very easy system to manage and connects with your paypal account

advantages

  • Use your own domain
  • Fairly advanced coupon codes
  • Users don’t need to sign up to check out

disadvantages

  • poor SEO control of meta tags
  • can only accept paypal and no other payment gateways
  • can’t do related products on product page, only newest and best selling
  • doesn’t have any extensions you can buy to make the site better

Opencart

website: opencart.com

price

  • Free

ease of use

  • fairly easy system to manage but has more options which may not be important

advantages

  • Use your own domain
  • Avanced coupon code
  • Different payment gateways more then paypal
  • Good SEO (with extensions)
  • The ability to use extensions to make the site better

disadvantages

  • A little harder to manage because there is more it can do
  • Harder to code, the time to code opencart is twice as long as bigcartel because it is more complicated of a system.

Everything Else

Magento – Just way to complicated. I felt like its backend was confusing. Even though it could do tons of stuff it was time consuming to figure everything out and I didn’t want to leave a site that was hard to figure out in the hands of a client.

Storenvy – It was easy to design for but ultimately it wasn’t as good as everything else. Especially since you couldn’t use your own domain it just wasn’t a cart I wanted to deal with.

Woocommerce – I checked it out and it looks like it is setup pretty well. They have a cool one page checkout and multiple payment gateways I just really need some time to look into it more before I develop on it.

I’ve done my research and found some solid e-commerce carts that will fit anyone’s project. I am always looking out for new e-commerce carts so if there is something else you are interested in let me know.

    woocommerce is pretty easy to theme for as it runs off of the wordpress engine.
