“Best eCommerce Software I have used for dropshipping”

Overall: AbanteCart is the best free shopping cart software with its nice user interface , responsive template that displays nicely on all devices (mobile & PC). SEO optimized and friendly URLS. With just a click, you're on way to start selling and receive payments globally. I have used it for my dropshipping business and for 3 of my clients who are also into eCommerce

Pros

AbanteCart is so easy to use for anyone who wants to start selling their products, it is a free open source shopping Cart and with it you can start to accept payments via the available payment extensions AbanteCart has by default. To use this software, you don't need any coding skills and you're good to go. The most amazing part of this software is the tutorial section when installing a new extension that teaches you on the steps to install the extension and there is a section to click on if you need an external support which makes AbanteCart an excellent software compared to other shopping cart i have tested. The default template is clean and its Ajax add to cart is awesome

Cons

Some of the premium templates are a bit pricey

Reasons for Choosing AbanteCart

AbanteCart's admin dashboard is so easy to use for anyone who doesn't want any complicated website navigation. Extensions from AbanteCart provides you a guide to read in other to install them successfully but WooCommerce isn't easy for me to understand

Reasons for Switching to AbanteCart

Complicated website navigation of the admin dashboard, not easy to understand some sections in the admin dashboard. Not all countries are added in the countries section which means some countries won't be able to checkout when ordering for items on a Prestashop website except the admin of the Prestashop website add all excluded countries either manually or through a plugin.

Best PHP shopping cart I have used

This software is easy to use and works very well, we have been using it for over two years and have never encountered any problem with it, there have been no security breaches since using this software whereas our previous shopping cart system had.

Pros

This software's default theme fit our business nicely so I had to do very little customising, the features included without needing to use plugins are more than most shopping carts I have used in the past (I have tried all PHP based systems).

Cons

Not the software's fault but not many plugins are available, I guess due to not being so popular yet, other than that I can't think of any downsides.

Reasons for Choosing AbanteCart

Having used all the others they all had different issues that I could not find easy solutions for, Abantecart had all the features we needed and the default theme fit our store so it was fate.

Is a comfortable short-range ecommerce solution since its configuration thus establishes it.

Pros

It promotes the use of the web to small companies that still do not have an Internet presence. Its easy configuration make it an acceptable strategy to start on the web. It's free, it has good technical support.

Cons

Not recommended for those who require a design very attached to the particularities of the business model. It is a standard solution.

Good and Efficient Shopping Cart

AbanetCart was what my company was looking for in starting and displaying it's product and services. It has a user-friendly interface and easy to understand and operate, but I'll recommend adding more useful themes and templates. Also, more add-on features should be added to make it even more fun to use.

Pros

It's free and user-friendly. It has a multi-site management feature. It's back-end interface is easy to understand and operate. It handles a large amount of project without a noticeable draws in performance.

Cons

Can't communicate with clients through it's interface. No images and formatting of newsletters, because it lacks html features. No human made translations. Lots of system generated translations. It's filled with indecent and unwanted templates. It lacks integration features like, affiliate platforms, payment processors etc.
