OpenCart is a robust, user-friendly, and feature rich ecommerce solution, designed to help users create and manage an online store quickly and easily.
OpenCart is easy to use and exceptionally attractive, making it a great shopping cart solution for inexperienced and advanced users.
OpenCart has tons of great features, from multiple languages and currencies to sales reports and search engine optimisation tools, and there are loads of extensions, modules, and themes to help you customise the appearance and functionality of your online store. Plus, OpenCart allows unlimited categories, products, manufacturers, and information pages, making it an extremely flexible shopping cart solution.
If you’re looking for a simple, lightweight, and flexible ecommerce application, then we strongly recommend OpenCart. You don’t need to have a lot of technical knowledge to use OpenCart, but some basic coding experience will definitely be a huge help. Due to OpenCart’s lightweight code, you shouldn’t have to spend a lot of time tweaking it to get it to run faster, unlike some of the other open source shopping cart solutions currently available. Plus, there are lots of free and premium themes and extensions available for OpenCart, so you can easily customise your store’s appearance and functionality.
If you need some help along the way, you can check out OpenCart’s excellent documentation, or you can visit their forum where you can ask the community for assistance. Are you still not sure if this is the right open source ecommerce application for your needs? Then try a demo of OpenCart for yourself!
We’re such big fans of OpenCart, we regularly write blogs about the latest themes and extensions available for this awesome ecommerce application. There are tons of free and premium themes available for OpenCart, and they come in a range of different colours and styles. There are a number of websites where you can find premium OpenCart themes, but we recommend checking out Themeforest and OpenCart’s office site.
Themeforest offers a growing number of stylish and affordable themes for OpenCart, but they don’t offer free templates. There are lots of free and premium themes on OpenCart’s official site, and these templates are suitable for a variety of different industries and businesses. Plus, OpenCart’s website is a great resource for free and premium extensions which you can use to easily add even more functionality to your online store!
