Pros
I was fascinated at the depth of options available with this software. It was easy to use and reliable as well.
That’s how I realized how much of a good software it actually was. It has a very responsive shop system and supports many languages including English, Germany.
More user friendly, better design, better adaptability and a good ending.
Cons
Is is a little bit hard to change all the lists (payments, counties, taxes), very exhaustive. And the migration from local machine to a internet host was also difficult.
It is difficult to migrate to from other e-commerce platforms. The payment system does not support the local currencies of many countries.
The pricing model is intransparent for customers evaluating it (hidden prices on homepage). Also for smaller projects and companies the community edition may be too limited.

Great e-commerce software, but not widely known

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Changing the colors and logos was easy, and the Smartstore platform has a great look and feel.We chose this program in part because we could add more coding to particular functionality we required.

Cons

It is not a software that is widely used. Moving from other e-commerce platforms to is challenging. Scrolling through products and experiencing more slowness

Es läuft! Ohne Probleme und ohne Stress. Die Hosting kosten, sind gering. Der Support ist super!

Pros

Import und Export, der Kundendienst und Support.

Cons

Unverständlich aber leider wahr ist zu wenig verbreitet. Ich verstehe nicht, warum PHP Shop Lösungen mehr Kunden haben. Nachteile sind mir keine aufgefallen. Wir betreiben auch einen Magento 1 Shop und 1 Shopware Shop.

Solid e-commerce platform

Reviewed 2 months ago

I have never very big issues with Smartstore. It just worked. But because of the pricing we will not work with it anymore. Also the software stack is quite uncommon for an e-commerce solution.

Pros

Smartstore has a lot of features. For the user it is easy to use. We used previous products from Smartstore before, and all of them were reliable. The Smartstore community seems may small, but is strong.

Cons

Smartstore is quite expensive. The pricing model is intransparent for customers evaluating it (hidden prices on homepage). Also for smaller projects and companies the community edition may be too limited. For larger budgets it will be a solid platform to built on.

Vendor response

Hello Renick, your rating of 3 stars is unfortunately not what we are used to. We take very conscientious care of our customers and partners, so I would like to address what you are criticizing. You write "I never had any major problems with Smartstore. It just worked," which makes us very happy. Cost shouldn't be an issue either, as Smartstore is proven to be one of the best performing store systems...

Endless customization

Reviewed 2 years ago

More user friendly, better design, better adaptability and a good ending.

Pros

The Smartstore platform has an incredibly good aspect and design, was easy to change colors and logos. Having a .NET bacground was one of the reasons we chose, because we could add some extra coding to some features we wanted. But its customization of products (attributes, specifications, tags, grouping) is endeless and fitted wel on our products, specially on watch parts. Importation of hundreds of products, following CSV instructions was successful!

Cons

Is is a little bit hard to change all the lists (payments, counties, taxes), very exhaustive. And the migration from local machine to a internet host was also difficult. When not in cache, .NET is sometimes slow.

Smartstore

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ich betreibe einen Online Shop für Schießsportzubehör und komme mit Smartstore prima zurecht. Vom Einstellen der Artikel, dem hochladen von Medien und der Auftragsverwaltung ist alles spielend einfach gestaltet. Das Programm funktioniert zuverlässig und der Support ist erstklassig. Aber wichtiger noch: Unseren Kunden, also den Endverbrauchern, gefällt der Shop. Besonders gelobt wird die Übersichtlichkeit und die einfache Bedienung.

Pros

Ich bin mit Smartstore praktisch "mitgewachsen" und nutze die Software täglich. Alles funktioniert problemlos vom Anlegen der Artikel bis zum Verkauf unserer Artikel. Man bekommt eine funktionelle Kundenverwaltung, die Artikeldatenbank nimmt alle relevanten Informationen auf. Bei einer Bestellung wird der Kunde übersichtlich durch den Bestellprozess geführt. Das Smartstore Team aktualisiert die Software ständig, so dass man auch Rechtssicherheit hat, was neue Bestimmungen und Gesetze angeht. z.B: die Cookies. Und mit dem Support von Smartstore bin ich sehr zufrieden. Durch das SEO freundliche Programm haben wir mittlerweile sehr gute Google Rankings, ebenso die Bewertungen dort sind überwiegend positiv.

Cons

Das Programm verfügt über alle Funktion die ich brauche. Es empfiehlt sich jedoch das Programm von Smartstore installieren zu lassen.
