The real cost of 3dcart vs. the real cost of WP eCommerce

3dcart: Free phone, chat and email support. WP eCommerce: Expensive, limited email support

If you’re ready to launch an online store with the help of a powerful eCommerce platform, you won’t find the tools or help you need with WP eCommerce. Professional, “premium” 1-year support is offered for $99, and is restricted to email alone. Need quick assistance? WP eCommerce promises assistance within 24 hours – during business hours that is, regardless if you’re dealing with an emergency.

At 3dcart, you’ll receive unlimited access to world-class Technical Support around-the-clock, every day of the year, by phone, chat and email. And unlike WP eCommerce, our awesome, friendly support is included for free with every 3dcart plan.

A dedicated shopping cart platform vs. a simple plugin

Out-of-box features

WP eCommerce customers are expected to dish out hundreds to thousands of dollars on extensions for essential features like multiple product images and an image gallery. Wish lists, gift certificates, a reward points program, payment integrations, and many other basic features are all sold separately. 3dcart includes all of these features, plus more, with every plan for free.

Technical support

Running an online store 24/7 means issues can arise at any time of day. Having access to reliable support around-the-clock is critical to your business’s success. Unlike WP eCommerce, we offer our customers friendly, expert support by phone, chat, and email, 24/7/365, so that you’re never forced to face an issue alone.

“WP eCommerce is like a car that looks nice on the outside, but is glued together with popsicle sticks on the inside. You’ve got to maintain 5mph or it’ll all come crashing down.”

Shipping and payment

3dcart offers numerous built-in shipping and payment integrations. Offer customers real-time rates from major shipping carriers like USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, and Canada Post, and accept all major credit cards using any of our 100+ supported payment gateways. WP eCommerce offers customers few shipping and payment options, all of which are sold as add-ons.
