What is OpenCart?
OpenCart is an opensource eCommerce platform that allows you to build and maintain an online store.
What are the benefits of OpenCart eCommerce?
Free to use
OpenCart comes with free downloads and updates, and won’t charge you any monthly fees.
Metrics and reports
OpenCart offers a well-designed dashboard that’s easy to use and understand. You can use the dashboard to have a look at different site metrics: who’s visiting your store, which pages do they visit, how long do they spend on a page? Using the metrics you can improve your site and better target your customers.
Wide range of themes and customisations
You can easily change the look of your store, without needing to understand web design. OpenCart has over 13 000 modules and themes available in their marketplace. Almost every service, sector, and industry are represented in different themes – so whether you’re designing a site for a bakery or building supply store, you will find a theme suited to your needs. Customisations allow you to easily integrate social media and other add-ons into your storefront.
Help when you need it
OpenCart is an open-source community, but that doesn’t mean you can only ask the OpenCart community for help when you’ve got problems. There is a dedicated technical support service that is available through the platform. You need to pay extra for this service but it’s often worth paying to have the support of a true expert with a short response time.
A global solution
OpenCart supports a number of different languages and currencies, making it easy to sell goods overseas.
Easy payment processing
OpenCart easily integrates with a number of eCommerce payment gateways. Adding a payment gateway like Payflex to your site is easy and trouble-free.
