OpenCart is an amazing software.

2017-10-18

I have been using this software for over 6 years to build ecommerce websites for my clients, offering customized solutions, template design, extensions, modules, consulting, maintenance.

Pros

Seo friendly. Easy to install and setup.

Cons

OpenCart's core upgrade processes are often laborious, but the OpenCart team seems to be working on this, and often offering solutions that allow you to take these weak points to disappear in a short time.

Popular, open source and not too complicated - worth a try

2016-12-06

It is definitely not perfect, but better than the immediate competition if looking for cost effective though feature-rich eCommerce solution.

Pros

- very fast; - a LOT of extensions, most inexpensive; - easy to learn the basics, not impossible to learn even more.

Cons

- lacks the fancy plugin management of Prestashop; - bulky updates; - some say bad customer support, but no personal experience in this regard.

A very good option for a free online store

2018-07-19

Pros

The templates are widely available and not only on the main website, they are developed from third parties.

Cons

Opencart does not have all the option out of the box, as the big ecommerce software have, but they are really good for niche and hip stores

For me this is the one for selling online.

2016-12-14

I love the system code layout, it is easy to learn and modify.

Pros

Everything you need to build any type of e-commerce website. Affordable plugins and extensions I find it has great security So many free / paid plugins and extensions to choose from

Cons

The update from version to version could be better streamlined The v2 and v3 admin layout could be better, it can be confusing due to changes made to modules section and theme management. Needs to use a better WYSIWYG for admin, it is so limited

Being able to build an e-commerce store with only limited knowledge in web design/development

Pros

OpenCart allows you to build an ecommerce store for your website in a simple fashion.

Cons

We have found limitations with the platform, for example when structuring a website. We've wanted to change a product structure for a client but there is a flaw in open cart which hasn't allowed this.

Cons

OpenCart updates are never completed, and the online store is often not up to date in terms of design.

Opencart a great online shopping platform

2020-03-30

Since opencart is open source we have found that we have full control as to how pages are deigned and how items are layed outr on our pages.

Pros

Opencart is a fairly simple platform to use to set up an online shopping platform. It has not required too much server space so its main advantage is it is lighter on the hosting package requirements compared to its peers with the same functionalities and costs. We have also found that the learning curve for this platform is not as steep as for others as it is made with the developer novice in mind.

Cons

For anyone who understands SEO this is a negative as it reduces organic SEO ranking.

create and manage your store, watch out for the plugins

2019-02-05

I develop opencart-based templates, I see the great power of personalization that the platform allows, although it needs a dedicated time to learn details.

Pros

to be able to create templates the way you want, to be able to use third-party plugins without great difficulties, such as payment and shipping

Cons

the plugins can be discontinued, and can put your application into difficulties

Good constructor, but not without flaws

2019-04-30

Pros

This designer did an online store - it turned out pretty good, I think. With the help of the service easily connected Russian payment systems. The administrative panel is beyond praise: comfortable and efficient.

Cons

Unfortunately, the engine does not like to add modifications from third-party developers to it - all this is fraught with bugs.
