Easy to use eCommerce software, value for money and good technical support.

2019-02-14

I have tried other eCommerce programs, but none compare to CS Cart for ease of use, value for money and support.

Pros

There is a SEO section to help you get to the top of the rankings.

Cons

I would like to see more features on the mobile site. The numbers accessing my site by phone is increasing quickly, and I would like to offer more options for these customers,

I've been using CS-Cart for 9 years and with 3 stores, I'm perfectly happy with it

2019-01-21

Apart from the occasional lack of some specific functionality of some third-party add-on, I've been perfectly happy with CS-Cart.

Pros

Great for SEO, I've been ranking any of my websites higher than competitors Really easy to build the base layout of the store with categories, subcategories, using product filters, etc.

Cons

Lack of some local integrations (like couriers or payment systems), you have to pay someone to do these Some third party add-ons are not great, and their support can be less than stellar Upgrades are resource intensive and you might need to contact your server support, sometimes to no avail

Very complete platform for ecommerce

2019-01-22

Pros

CS Cart is a very complete platform that offers most functionality inside of the same platform without having to rely on third party plugins.

Cons

Because there aren't as many plugins out there it's difficult to find specific functionalities, like upselling, cross selling, abandon cart, etc.

Highly customizable and intuitive ecommerce cart

2019-01-24

Pros

At this moment i think cs cart represent the best choice for an alli-n-one software ecommerce platform, for middle or little online business, it doesn't need big code knowledge, installing and configuring it are very intuitive and simple, and the best think in my opinion, it's that you don't need any additional module or extension, you can easily setup a fully functional ecommerce with a lot of options, about managing the products, marketing and website, products variants, SEO and marketing, exporting/importing all type of data, blog feature, GDPR module, and may other, it's all inclusive, and the price is very good too.

Cons

After one year from purchasing, you need to pay for an upgrade subscription plan, to continue receiving upgrades, however it's not so expensive.

I wish we would've gone magento!

2018-12-17

So we've lost our butts here, I wish Magento was in a better position 9 years ago when we had to make a decision on modern ecommerce software package as our base.

Pros

The software has pretty good hooks, and is written in a standard enough way that any developer can modify it with addons to your needs. But thats about the only praise I can muster.

Cons

Their support refuses to assist without ACCESS to the server, which by contract we cannot give.

Great product

2019-01-21

I use for several online shops for many years. In my opinion, one of the best applications for business.

Pros

Ability to connect various modules, customization from both the developer and third-party developers.

Cons

Requires a good hosting, in the case of a large number of goods. However, ongoing work is underway to improve the speed of the stores.

I tried many other shopping carts before trying the trial of CS-Cart... I have not looked back!

2019-01-22

Cs-Cart may not have all the the things that I would like... But they are listening to suggestions and making improvements! As with any software there are bugs or code that cause glitches... it is part of software development. CS-Cart is really trying to improve the software, I started with version 4.7.3 and they have made some great improvements in the last year

Pros

Easy to use, I was making categories and importing products by CSV files, within 2 hours of downloading the software and installing on the server. unlimited categories and sub-categories.

Cons

Does not yet have a place for cost of product, or place for the Brand or Manufacturer.

Comparing CS-CART to Other E-commerce Platforms

2019-01-21

CS-CART developers should improve caching mechanism to support very large shopping carts, especially with mega-menu interfaces. Security will be more and more critical.

Pros

Most important, it is a Licensed eCommerce software easy to install on a dedicated server, or in a shared hosting environment.

Cons

Considering that speed is critical, we are only concerned with caching mechanism and optimal hosting environment parameters that not easy to determine if you are not an expert.

Good

Pros

The best platform for a multifunctional webshop

2019-01-22

In one purchase you get a nicely designed web shop, with many options and features, easy to use- a webshop's owner dream.

Pros

Maybe the best of all: it is so well SEO optimized that my web shop got to the first Google page in a matter of months.

Cons

None that I can think of...I've been working with several webshop platforms, and CS-Cart is the only one I would recommend to others.

Review of CS-Cart Ecommerce Software

2019-04-02

I have been using CS-Cart software for 8 years or so. It has come a long way. I am overall pleased with my decision to select this software. They have worked hard to fix bugs that accompanied updates early on and improve the updating process. They really seem dedicated to putting out a top-notch e-commerce product. The block architecture allows even novices to customize their own site and I do most of the website work myself with little computer experience. When I need extra help the customer help desk is very attentive and solves any issues quickly. There are now numerous add-ons to address most needs of a website owner and when custom work is needed there are capable developers to handle this work for you.

Pros

Ease of Use Very Customizable Affordability Active helpful community Very attentive Help Desk Constantly improving software Lots of features Lots of add-ons to select from

Cons

Checkout process could be better and in my case required an add-on Updating process is nerve-racking although much improved over the past

Lightning fast ecommerce platform

2019-01-28

Overall we are very happy with it and the support is great and developers are pretty easy to communicate with through the forums.

Pros

We have been using CS-Cart for 3 years now and I can't stress enough how fast and stable it is. Everyone told us we should be on Magento 2, so we jumped on the bandwagon and thought it was a good idea too. About about year ago we started the migration to Magento 2. Mostly due to the lack of plugins for the Dutch market. That periode we truly started to appreciate CS-Cart and after struggling for months in a staging environment we decided to fully focus on CS-Cart instead and get choose professional CS-Cart partners and get anything missing custom developed. One of our websites is https://www.dronekenner.nl In the meanwhile CS-Cart is getting more and more advanced from stock so less need for plugins

Cons

Fortunately everything can get custom developed with the API.

After using many carts CS Cart became the final destination, 10 years and running!

2019-01-26

CS Cart rocks! You don't need anything else

Pros

Then the back-end options are really flexible, we could customise our country options, which is great not being in a majour country. Drag and drop customising of pages makes it so easy to setup pages with no experience.

Cons

Not many or majour at all. Mostly they focus on developing the core product, but not on the little things that sometimes make a big difference, then the developers make an add-on for it and you got to buy it. For eg. a button to scroll to the top of the page, or make the checkout page a single screen. It would be great to dedicate some time to these smaller elements as well. And then we sell alot of services (document print & copy centre), and the software isn't as friendly to setup for selling services as it is to selling physical products. So we had to get creative in making the product page layout more to what we'd prefer.

Review on CS-CART e-commerce platform

2019-01-22

I have been stuck to it unconditionally since 2012, even after experiencing other known platforms like prestashop, oscommerce or magento. I am now a proud and happy host of several successful online business running CS-CART stores.

Pros

Fully featured opensource e-commerce platform Expandable capabilities through addons and skins readily available through a growing associated marketplace Fair price for a successful online business running store Extremely fast, secure and reliable Continuously being updated and following the online markets trends Excellent support and development if necessary Multilanguage, and SEO ready

Cons

If you are a Facebook level editor, prepare yourself to go through a learning curve until get familiar with all CS-CART admin features
