Pros

The best part for me is that woocommerce is free providing an excellent e-commerce environment for fresh users containing a variety of different features.
I can only recommend WooCommerce as the simplest and the best solution that saves you thousands of dollars in development.
All in all, it is the single best shopping solution for Wordpress. I used it on a few websites that I made and I loved it mainly because it was very easy and quick to set up.

Pros

The best aspects of OpenCart include the ability to integrate payment gateways and e-commerce tools easily into websites. Many are free to use and the variety of tools are fantastic.
Great feedback from the community, being and active and responsive community. We were able to develop one online shop with easy and great performance.
What I like most about OpenCart is that it is open source, thereby it has a huge community. I like that OpenCart is easy to use and setup.

Cons

However, I can see if folks are not inclined to be DIY about this they might be annoyed with the lack of documentation WITHIN Wordpress.
My overall experience was extremely frustrating and disappointing.
A bit limited in functionality and if you need additional plugins it can end up being quite costly and complex to mantain updates.

Cons

Most of the templates require further work, as they are usually bought at foreign sites. There are also problems with translation, or rather its lack and with optimization.
Some say bad customer support, but no personal experience in this regard.
We do not favor how limited the base platform is on shipping integration, fraudulent order monitoring, or promotional sale control.

Hard to control and to update

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

A bit more custom software interaction than woocommerce, really great forum support. Good team, a product to be monitored in the future

Cons

Really hard to update from one big version to another, hard to extract all the products from the store and migrate to another, in earlier versions the linking system was a mess

OpenCart

Suitable for mid-size e-shops

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

All features are easy to use and there are tons of documentation texts and videos online, if you want to dive into the more advanced features.

Cons

If you are a beginner, you may want to choose WooCommerce or another simpler ecommerce platform. OpenCart is suitable for bigger e-shops.
