"I love OpenCart. I switched from osCommerce because I wanted a modular system without clutter. My website is up and running better than before and is easier to maintain. There are not as many free modifications available for OpenCart as there is for osCommerce, but once you get accustomed to how OpenCart works you can customize nearly anything. I like working with it and have not paid for any modifications. As a former "shopping cart junkie", I can assure you that open source is the way to go. You can get what you want by customizing it. Plus it's free. And you don't have to gamble on "paid modifications" just to try them...thinking that they will work the way you want, but actually don't. I have never been disappointed with a free, helpful, business-saving open source modification. In fact, I am so thankful for them!"

"I've been with OpenCart for a year now and have had doubts due to some online reviews on the community. Never the less I gave it try and boy was a glad! The code is VERY clean, very well structured. The speed is insane and it seems like they're pushing themselves much harder with service and attitude. I've contacted their support on numerous occasions and the technicians are very competent. I would suggest anyone looking for a good shopping cart system to try this, if you're a beginner just shoot questions over to the support staff when you run into any problems, they're there to help for sure!"

"Glad I did not read these reviews before installing OpenCart! I just came out of some bad experiences with other carts (including Magento) that either are obsolete, super-bloated, sluggish, complicated to mod and so on. OC is certainly far from perfect but it installed in a breeze (even using NGinx), you have straight vision of the SEO consequences of what you do, it does a lot of what Magento does. While Magento is a pinnacle of high programming design but at the cost of bloat, slowness and difficulty to changes, OC has a brutal "all code in your face" approach that makes it more immediate to understand which bits do what. It's "earthly" written code and templates you can whack and hack at will. It's certainly not as nice as modding Wordpress and its endless hooks, but thanks to VQMod (a popular OC add on) anyone can write patches (in the most literal sense) that virtually apply on the code and virtually replace it, without actually altering the distribution sources. All in all, a good solutions for those who can't afford corporate grade budgets, personnel and long coding times. Also, it took me all of 2 days from zero to having 3rd party themes etc. installed so I don't get why others had such an hard time. Yes, you have to eventually replace a couple PHP snippets in the theme or whatever (because it was for an older OC version) but hey: if you sell yourself as consultant or professional then you should know basic PHP and how to use search/replace in an editor. If you are the end user, instead, you might try OC and see if it's OK "as is" or switch to an end user oriented cart script."

"The script itself isn't bad at all, good for some less demanding people. Poorly written and chaotic coding makes it hard to modify or understand. Unfortunately, bad attitude of the main developer and his forum moderators keeps serious developers away from using OC. On a daily basis, negative posts about OC or their business partners are being removed. Too much to hide? They don't allow any complains whatsoever. Also, most of the modules are developed by small companies in India where refund policy doesn't apply if the product you paid for doesn't work. That was in our case. For the last 6 years, we were developing websites using another commercial software. We did try our best to go with "free" OC and paid modules. The amount we spent to get things ready to work was only 130$ [template + 3 modules]but the time we have wasted to get all glitches fixed was far too expensive to afford. On top of that, lack of communication with companies in India and time difference was killing our business. We're now back with 380$ software which just works as expected. OC and the bad attitude of OC team isn't for us. Some young developers will be still fine with the product."

"as a host and development company we were left high and dry by Interspire when they went to a SASA system. After looking around OpenCart seem the best option, particularly as it’s not a licensed product. Some comments here complain about the mods costing too much but Interspire charged a huge fee for ongoing upgrades and support after the initial purchase. So I have found its still cheaper, and the forums and the developers creating the mods most helpful. We have had one security issue and I am not sure if this even came from OpenCart. So far we are very happy"

"Everyone who has given this cart a rating of 1 to 2 is correct, anyone who has given it a higher rating has no clue what they are talking about, the code is a joke, and the support for the extensions is non-existent. You better be a class A coder or have one handy if you have an issue, which there will be a lot of them. What I really love about this product is their comments section, i.e. support, they really don't have any good support structure for the extensions at all. Try putting any piece of constructive negative comments on it (like your extension is not working and here's why) and see what happens, it disappears, but not before the developer makes it appear that it is you that is the problem. Research your shopping carts first before you take the plunge, you will be much better off. "

"I use CS-Cart usually but had a low-budget project that needed a cart. I just finished installing OpenCart and have already successfully configured the branding on the store front and the payment methods. So far OpenCart is proving to be a very powerful and complete solution. Some of the interface is a little confusing at first but once you understand how the Modules fit together it's just lovely. I am really pleased with this cart so far. I will probably be installing it for 2 more projects. At the rate I am progressing here I will have a complete store ready to deploy in 1 day using the basic skinning that comes with the cart."

"One of the few carts to support multi-stores (multiple stores from one admin/database) which is why I switched from stand alone cubecart stores to it. I looked at Magento, but after 2 months of messing with it, couldn't even figure out how to add payment & shipping options in it. I had 30+ stores up and running perfectly within 2 weeks with opencart. Forum members are very helpful and there is a great selection of extensions available to customize your store any way you want - though out of the box, it works and looks great. Upgrading is a bit of a pain, but if you take it step by step and follow instructions, it is not that bad and an updater is being worked on to make it easier in the future. There are 2 hook programs available to let you make modifications without affecting the core - I use vqmod and it works wonderfully. I'm not a coder - I can make some tweaks and changes, but cannot program from scratch. I've found opencart's code to be pretty easy to follow and modify as I want it and several helpful forum members to help when I get stuck. I've paid under $200 in extensions to add the functions I needed and have had no problems with ripoffs as stated in other reviews. I recommended to a friend and they were running within a week with far less programming knowledge than I have. There is a great array of templates available so you can make each store unique and seo has been very easy. I highly recommend Opencart."

"If anyone says OpenCart is a good product, then s/he either has a one-product store, or has just seen internet. I am a professional developer/software architect, and our company specializes in OpenCart modules. This cart is apparently written from wanna-be PHP programmers, the code is ugly, VERY inefficient, written for a high school course perhaps. You must buy modules for even the most simple things - like the search, which is AWFUL! There are no "hooks" or event support in the code, so you can modify certain processes, you must modify the core files, which WILL cause problems with upgrades, other modules, etc. And what is the worst thing, the modules market is not covered and you can be easily scammed. If you will be running an online store, then just buy a professional cart and avoid all the troubles with this undeveloped, very basic cart, and you will even save money and hassles..."

"After starting with high hopes for this cart, a few days later and I am dumping it in favour of something a bit longer in the tooth. The concept is great and the simplicity is refreshing, but for even basic functionality you need to buy add-ons and when you put them together they cost more than a commercial cart. The support is rubbish and the forums do not contain enough information to do it yourself. By the time I had worked my way through the sparse documentaion I had already spent longer than I wanted on what was supposed to be a very simple project. No support, poor documentation and rip-off commercial mods which often do not work turned what promised to be a great cart, into a waste of time and effort. Such a shame because with the right development team this could become the best open source shopping cart available. Most of the paid for modules should actually be standard within the core (for example the ability to turn off category counts), especially when comapred with other carts it would be classed as basic functionality. There is little point nowadays having a product import system which does not import product options and this is where the paid for modules rip people off. The basic importers are cheap but do not import options and then the price rises sharply. Upgrading the store is a complete nightmare unless you decide to start from scratch. Add-ons are difficult to keep track of and often amend core code. Verdict: Opencart is not yet a mature enough cart to deploy in any real commercial sense. Go with the older carts which may be outdated but have proven themselves. Or pay for a commercial cart - you will spend about the same money if you use Opencart."

"This was just a terrible experience. Out of the box all the demo data is loaded and you have no choice not to load it. This is very bad. Second, once you clear everything out and start adding products you get an error saying "Undefined index: count" or something like that. You go for support and search on the forums, try the fix and it does not work at all. A cart should work out of the box and not require any special modification by a developer to get it to work. These guys are not testing their support properly. I should know as I am a software developer also and this software would lose me my job. To top it all off, the forum moderator is one of the rudest people on the planet. This is not the type of support people should be receiving: "Can't you people read" "I've said it 50 times and I'm done saying it" Keep in mind that his fix fails to resolve the issue. I'm frustrated with this thing and am moving on to something else. I had high hopes for this cart, but unless I want to take the code and write a brand new useful cart, this is no good for me. Certainly not for the regular Joe shopkeeper."

"Two major complaints: 1) Paypal EXPRESS checkout is not integrated, you have to pay for an extension (this is an open source cart, so you could do it yourself, but...). 2) The documentation is really quite weak. There is PAID documentation, but an organized set of documentation is weak at best. Otherwise, simple enough to install, a bit weird to configure.

"This cart had some good reviews so I installed it and used it for almost a year. The Shop does look good out of the box and has tons of useful features. The Cart uses an MVC DRY approach, the code is pretty clean and the installer is intuitive and simple to use. From a user/administrators perspective, there is never any 'stable' release because there is never any bug fix releases. New features get bundled into every release so there is always a high risk those new features will have bugs (all the 1.5.X versions I used did). Some of the user input is not validated correctly and in some case this can actually create malformed product links (developer is aware but says it isn't a bug). This product has a sole developer so expect support delays as his main income is from bespoke development work. In summary; NOT a good choice if you want a safe, stable shopping cart. If you are a developer and are prepared to roll your own bug-fixes then it might be a usable base."

"I'm the lead developer for a company that builds a lot of ecommerce sites. I have implemented this cart for our company even though it is not perfect. Pros: 1-clean, MVC code 2-lightweight. not bloated (all opensource competitors I'm aware of are very bloated) 3-using caching by default 4-clean/organized/intuitive code architecture. 5-loads/runs fast, and is customized with relative ease 6-installation is quick and painless 7-its free/opensource. 8-the cart looks fantastic by default (good layout) 9-the admin panel is clean and doesn't have the bloat of most competitors 10-the vast majority of options in the cart are options you'll need (except i find wishlist and reward points annoying) cons 1-upgrades are difficult and backward compatibility is not respected. however, this helps prevent the cart from getting bloated. i guess its a 2 edged sword. 2-if you customize it, the software architecture is written in a way that forces you to edit the core (e.g. he labeled classes "final" that should NOT have been labeled this way). 3-the creator is a bit rude to people i've seen giving very candid, gentle feedback. 4-the config files are weird. maybe this helps the cart run slightly faster, although it does make the cart less flexible (i need a completely different config for my local machine vs the remote server). 5-there are a few security issues on occasion, like one with paypal IPN although according to the creator this has been addressed Overall, this is not a perfect cart. However, in spite of it's many warts I have decided to use this as our opensource cart. My reasoning? the competitors are full of bloated crap that my clients don't need. I can install this cart pretty quickly, although it does require customization to get it working properly.

"OC is relatively new to the e-commerce scene. It has had many revisions over the past year and has grown to be a GREAT CART! I have been using this cart since almost it's beginning and though it has had it's ups and downs it doesn't get any easier than this cart to set up, run, design, and tweak to your liking. The support is actually very good contrary to some post here. I highly recommend OC for your shopping Cart needs. I have worked with all the major open source carts and there's no doubt I've lost more hair using them. Right now I'm working over a client site with Zencart... I'll be balled before I'm done. If OC had the ability to interface with Quickbooks I'd have him using OC in a second. OC is better than all of them and only getting better. The frame work it's built on can't be beat. If you can't get OC running right out of the box in 5 min. then you probably should not be trying to set up any other cart without someone holding your hand... really it's easy, stable, and secure. The only reason not to use OC is if there is a feature it doesn't have yet, but I can't imagin what that could be for 99% of on-line stores. BTW, OC is NOT just for UK shoppers as one stated in their review... it's a multi-language multi-currency Shopping Cart. Use it and find out how good this cart really is, you'll be glad you did."

"I have used, and developed for, the three that are normally compared - Opencart, Prestashop and Magento. Of the three I feel that Opencart is the best at present (version 1.4.9.3). It is well coded and feature rich, but not bloated. There are also a lot of extra modules (free or paid) on the opencart site. It is also great if you have lots of product options. It is definitely the least buggy, and really is easy to set up. And keep going. There is plenty of help on the forum (people who are ignored tend to be rude or asking off topic questions). It is very fast up to about 200 categories and several thousand products on the average host package (which is similar to the others in reality). As with all three, make sure your web hoster has the MySQL server on the same server, if it is not it can really slow all of these carts down! If you develop sites for customers, the massive advantage of opencart is the admin interface, it looks a lot more professional, and is easier to use, and in my experience that makes a huge different to customers. Someone who is not an expert has no trouble managing the store. Of the three there seems to be more direction on where it is going too. As is the way with these things, in twelve months time another one may have taken the lead. For the time being it is Opencart for me."

"I used OpenCart for a little over two months. In that amount of time I spent more time on learning how to add this file, modify that file, upgrade this file, and change that file than I actually spent on marketing and selling my products! Not that I don't like to learn new things. It was interesting reading up on php and mySQL (what OpenCart is built on), but looking back it was a serious waste of time. I could have used that time to actually make money instead of spend it. To elaborate on that, yes, OpenCart is open source software and free to use, but the options that come with it leave a little to be desired. If you want to actually upgrade your cart to, you know, look and do some of the things that other shopping cart solutions do, then you gotta pay a third party developer for an extension (or modification). They do have quite a large group of people who develop all kinds of wonderful extensions that make the cart better, and to give them credit there are some very useful free 3rd party extensions available, but for the more serious extensions you usually have to pay someone for it. Also, you are responsible for searching through all the extensions, downloading them, uploading them to your site, making sure they work, figuring out why if they don't, etc. etc. It takes a lot of time, and there's no guarantee that one extension won't break another extension (or your cart) and so on. While it might seem like you are getting a good deal, you usually end up paying more for extra themes (OpenCart only comes with 1 default theme), extensions, modifications, etc. I ended up spending close to $200 on my cart (and I wasn't even finished with it yet) before I started to realize "At this rate i'm gonna end up paying more for this free cart than I would if I used a paid shopping cart service that already offers all these things built in!"

"We initially selected this cart because it has great graphics, a good administrator control panel, and a clean, simple user interface. However after spending several days customizing it (at a significant cost), we realized we can't use it without completely rewriting major sections. It's designed for use by customers in the United Kingdom. To take orders from anywhere else (like the United States), you have to design your own order forms (high-end carts typically change the order form based on the country you select). It was very difficult to charge a sales tax for the state where we do business and very hard to add different levels of shipping (like FedEx, USPS and UPS). Support for downloadable files is very limited. For example there is no simple way to deliver an unlock code for software or ebooks. This cart appears to be developed and supported by one person who does not respond to emails, but offers assistance for a fee. There are limited instructions and it takes hours to find and edit the multiple PHP files needed to customize the appearance. Finally Juniper Networks says Opencart is vulnerable to hackers (although this may now be corrected in later versions). "

Ecommerce Spot Comments OpenCart is a open source shopping cart that's having a good shot at taking the open source crown from the established players like osCommerce and ZenCart. It has many nice out of the box features. Some less common ones include product level time limited sales, and good localization support. Some little annoying things include the very user unfriendly use of sort order everywhere (what happened to a nice AJAX sorting interface?). The default URLs are decidedly SEO unfriendly which is a pity. This should really be set to SEO friendly by default. However, overall, this is a strong candidate to take over from the grandfathers of open source carts.
