If you are a person who has many thoughts that you would like to publish or perhaps you like fashion and want to show that interest, then WorldPress is your best friend.

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.

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

As a result, I'm forced to disapprove and delete spam comments individually, and when you get hundreds of these kind of spam comments each week, you can imagine that it can be frustrating.

NS

Wordpress is really limited in its features and functionalities. More than that, the support for customers is bad.

BR

Barbara R.

We've found ourselves stalled out badly with problems at times because a theme or plugin had terrible support.

Kurt H.

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.

RM

Rania M.

Some say bad customer support, but no personal experience in this regard.

DD

Davids D.

We do not favor how limited the base platform is on shipping integration, fraudulent order monitoring, or promotional sale control.

Wordpress has always been a bail-out for me for web design and CMS development

Reviewed 3 years ago

It saves me the stress of haven to write a whole bunch of codes to set up a CMS.

Pros

WordPress is a Big name in CMS development and design. This Content management system is very easy to use even if you are a starter because of its blogging origin. Almost everyone can setup a wordpress work environment to start a business website or a blogging website. One of the most interesting features is the ability to easily install ecommerce plugins like woocommerce, opencart, magento etc. With little knwoledge of wordpress, you can successfully install plugins, install website templates and also edit few of them because it is user friendly. Lastly, it is super SEO friendly and all its web templates are mobile responsive. Great Opensource CMS.

Cons

It is vulnerable. Being an open-source platform, WordPress is obviously prone to potential hackers who build plugins to hack you website. but to avoid this, the user have to be very knowledgeable about which plugins to install

OpenCart

Simple and cheap e-shop system for small e-shops without marketing support.

Reviewed 3 years ago

This product works well for my low and middle class e-shops which offer limited number of products, mostly in the same category, with a smaller budget for running and promotion. For the more advanced needs, this system cannot offer enough functions and there is not enough resources for customers. Free version is too simple. For some results, paid themes and plugins are needed. Then e-shop may generate some income.

Pros

OpenCart is not as demanding as other e-shops in terms of resources. It doesn't use server sources as high as other apps. You can run it on standard on a shared hosting. There is fairly simple interface so it is easy to setup a shop, very simplified. It can be used by beginners. Simple UI on the back-end and fairly descent front-end makes it easy to use. Easy backup.

Cons

Very hard to update or modify. It can just break down and not work even if you roll out backup of the previously working site. SEO is terrible even with paid plugins. To make addresses and descriptions work is so hard. Never made it to work completely as it would on standard shops Magento, or Wordpress. One-page shopping is not working well even with paid plugins. Marketing options are very limited...
