Is OpenCart A Good Choice For ECommerce?
When it comes to building an online store, there is a wide range of platform options available
to merchants. From fully-hosted platforms like Shopify to open-source options like
WooCommerce, the choices for eCommerce website development can be overwhelming. One
platform, with a 1.76% market share in the eCommerce industry, that is often overlooked but
deserves more attention, is OpenCart.
What Is OpenCart?
OpenCart is a free, open-source eCommerce platform that is designed to make it easy for
small and medium-sized businesses to set up and manage an online store. It is written in PHP
and uses a MySQL database to store data. OpenCart is designed to be user-friendly, with a
simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy for merchants to handle tasks related to
running an online store. It is also supported by a large and active community of developers,
who are constantly creating new extensions, themes, and other resources to help merchants
enhance their online stores.
Primary Features Of OpenCart
Here are some of the main features of OpenCart:
1. Product & Inventory Management

orders, including the ability to view and update order status, send invoices and shipping
notifications, and generate reports.

brands.

10. Customer Loyalty Programs

11. Multi-user Management
To effectively manage an online store, it is important to collaborate with various individuals
who hold different responsibilities. This becomes increasingly important as a business grows.
Even when running a small online store, at some point you will likely require the assistance
of a developer for maintaining the online environment. With OpenCart, you have the ability
to assign different roles and access levels to multiple administrators.
Advantages Of OpenCart
There are several advantages to using OpenCart as compared to other eCommerce platforms:
1. It is Open-source
One of the biggest advantages of using OpenCart as an eCommerce platform is that it is
open-source, which means that the code is available to the public and can be modified to suit
the specific needs of a business. This allows for easy customization of the platform by writing
custom code, such as adding new features or integrating with other systems. This can be a
great advantage for merchants who want to add unique functionalities to their online store,
or who want to fully customize the look and feel of their store to match their brand.
2. It is User-friendly
OpenCart is designed to be easy to use, even for those who are not familiar with web
development. It has a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy for merchants to add
and manage products, process orders, and handle other tasks related to running an online
store.
3. It is Widely Supported
As mentioned earlier, OpenCart is supported by a large and active community of developers,
which means that there is a wide range of extensions, themes, and other resources available
to help merchants customize and enhance their online stores.
It also has a large user base, which means that there is a wealth of resources and support
available for merchants who are using the platform. This can be especially helpful for
merchants who are new to eCommerce or who are not familiar with web development, as
there is a strong community of users who are willing to help and answer questions.
4. It is Lightweight and Efficient
OpenCart is a lightweight platform that is easy to set up and manage, even for merchants
who are not tech-savvy. It is also designed to be fast and efficient, which can help improve
the user experience for customers.
5. It is Affordable
OpenCart is free to use, which makes it an affordable option for merchants who are looking
to build an online store on a budget. In addition, it has a low cost of ownership, with no
recurring fees or commissions to worry about.
6. It has a Range of Built-in Features
OpenCart comes with a range of built-in features that can be useful for merchants, such as
support for multiple languages and currencies, a built-in affiliate program, and the ability to
create discount coupons and gift vouchers.
7. It has Strong Security
OpenCart is designed to be secure, with features like SSL support and the ability to set up
secure payment gateways to protect sensitive information. It is also regularly updated to
address any security vulnerabilities that may be discovered.
8. It has a Responsive Design
OpenCart is designed to be responsive, which means that it looks and functions well on a
wide range of devices, including smartphones and tablets. This can be especially important in
today’s mobile-first world, where many customers shop online using their mobile devices.
Conclusion
Overall, OpenCart can be a great choice for eCommerce development, particularly for small
and medium-sized businesses that are looking for an affordable and user-friendly platform to
build their online store on. If you’re thinking about building an online store, give OpenCart a
try – you might be surprised at what it can do!
