When it comes to the available options to design your storefront, there are a ton of them, whether you are looking for open-source or paid ones. Most open-source platforms have a trend. Making money by selling hosting, tightly coupling with payment providers, or selling premium themes or add-ons. Open-source platforms are also more suitable for communities and universities where development resources are free or not as expensive. So how does OpenCart compare with the other platforms?
In today's episode, we are going to review OpenCart’s capabilities independently. We covered many grounds, including how OpenCart has a slightly superior model in making money through books than restricting their customers with a payment provider or limiting the integration options available. Finally, we covered the overall business risks with the open source platforms, such as having duplicate pages for the SEO, the uptime of the servers, and untested plugins being promoted to the platform without quality and compliance.
