Skip the hassle and headaches that come with an open-source platform

3dcart is everything you need to bring your business dream to life

3dcart vs. Open source/free/licensed shopping carts

Open-source and licensed shopping cart software, like OsCommerce, Miva, ZenCart, Magento, etc. are downloaded and installed onto a web server that you maintain. Prices for these programs can range from free, to thousands of dollars.

Dropship

Open-source platforms: a flawed eCommerce solution

  • Manual Installation, development, and maintenance.
  • Requires a hosting provider, developer and designer to setup.
  • Many security risks make it very hard to be PCI compliant.
  • No technical support available or extremely expensive.
  • No automatic backups, you’re responsible for your data.
  • No automatic software updates or security patches.
  • High startup costs (software might be FREE but will require installation & customization).
