Pros: the biggest plus to us is that Abantecart is able to handle a huge amount of options without noticable performance draws. this is due to a flat option system that does not interchain each option into one product. but Abantecart still allows to set price, amount and so forth to each option. via a comprehensive jquery script, that handles stock, prices and so forth.

Abantecart has a very easy designer unterface for beginners. as its simply drag and drop. the only downside to this is that somethimes when adding blocks of the design get directed away from this design template. and has to maneuver back again.

it has in our eyes almost every feature you could wish for as a store owner. and with pretty good explanations too

We really love Abantecart. the thing that made us switch to Abantecart was the way it deals with product options. all others brands was not meeting our demands here. firstly other brands could not handle the amount of diffrent options. and or the ability to display color ot images.

this Abantecart allows us to create a fulfilling webshop.

Cons: Abantecart has a rather small array of addons, and a pretty small community that is primarily centered arround making money and not helping with coding for free. but it seems like the developers are quiet active in the forums.

you are unable to communicate with the customers via the webinterface. and relying on e-mails from the customers. you can add notes to orders. but the customer is not able to reply unfortunately.

the newsletter is as i see it built to handle many customers. but lack html features, so no imges or other formatting of newsletters.

there are not many human made translations. but there is a library of machine translated languages and a very neat feature for translating every bit of text via the administration interface., allthough with some text it can be a little hard to guess where it belongs. but its only a matter of checking and trying again.

Overall: Overall we got a system that is able to handle a rather large amount of options but perform very well on a cheap hosting solution. other than that it has all the features we can not live with out. or we have found third party options. as an example. the systems lack of HTML mail hendling, we have used mailchimp, wich can be purchesed for small amount of money and integrates via synchronization, and we have added a customer chat addon.

Simple yet very complete CMS. Perfect for our needs so far.

Pros: This CMS has been very reliable to us so far. Very stable (but watch out when you upgrade), secure, and our customers love the frontend interface,.

As a ecommerce website admin, it easily let me do my day to day work without issues. Backend interface is straightforward and simple.

Other pros :

- translation (frontend) is easy

- built-in communication tool for our customers

- stable platform and secure

- reporting

- good extensions (but most of all are not free)

- multi-site manager

Cons: - Lack of decent templates even if our customers love the interface

- Few extensions compared to other CMSs

- Upgrades may be complicated sometimes (test everything, I mean everything)

- Lack of some integrations (payment processors, affiliates platforms, etc.).

Overall: It's free, easy to use, and secure.

Pros: All of the above Its FREE and its very user friendly and feature rich. Nice Layout. Full fill all requirements.

Cons: No Flexibility, We have to be strict what is offered. No Theme options available. Admin settings needs to be more friendly too.

Overall: I was looking for the e commerce platform where I can start my business and display my products on my terms and condition. I found Abante Cart according to my expectations. Very user friendly interface. But I appreciate If we get some more Themes so we can change its look and feel also. otherwise all the web site will look same like others who are using same platform. Changing color should be so easy. Some more features should be added like todays other modern shopping web site are using. Like Aliexpress, Amazone, Flipcart, Snapdeal etc.

I love if Abante add or develop some more software like Free classified, Web Portal related like Yahoo, indiatimes, facebook, youtube, msn, twiter etc. , Dating portals

Recommendations to other buyers: Themes should be provided more. More Free add ons need to be provided. Site should be easy to edit.

AbanteCart developed as an excellent choice for individuals and businesses, lightweight and the best it is a free eCommerce platform.

Comments: Feel free to try AbanteCart if you are considering installing a robust solution for your business. I can assure you that this is a platform with easy and comfortable management and amazing user experience.

Pros: AbanteCart easy to install and work with, easy to navigate and setup using Great Admin Panel. Too offer a decent selection of add-ons. Modern look and feel showing the product listing style is quite good, user friendly and easy to understand GUI. Open source, it is compatible with a lot of devices. Lightweight running great speed.

Cons: Bit hard to find relavent documentation. It is missing the cms option. It doesn't have the option to have a vertical menu on the home page. Not enough free templates to choose from, little difficult find themes. I can't customization email body & themes, AbanteCart needs a section for Creating Custom Newsletter.

Love this shopping cart.

Pros: It has many features for the price (FREE), I have been using it for many years and it is always my go to cart. It is one of the few out there that has the file upload feature, a must if you sell calendars. It is easy to get your store to look the way it should with the layout option.

Cons: It is missing the cms option, I did figure out a way around this though. It doesn't have the option to have a vertical menu on the home page, you can find mods or templates in the market place for this though. The shipping was a little difficult for me to figure out. Support on the forum was available to help with this and I did get it done. I like it so much I donated to help support the developers and keep it going!

Overall: Making clients happy with an ecommerce option they could take over when their store was complete.

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.

Overall: I have started newly. I am a web developer, I feel very comfortable to set it up , customizing and user friendly. Before this CMS I have used Woo-commerce but that is so complicated to customized.

Pros: Open source. Comprehensive included modules. Forum support -- less than 1 day in my experience. Documentation. Intuitive interface.

Cons: AH. None that I am aware of!

Overall: I examined several other products and was deploying a competitor with little success. After examining the AbanteCart website, demo, documentation, and user forum I deployed. Deployment using bitnami was faultless as was setting up the site. Documentation includes under 2 minute youtube demonstrations on the critical steps.

The list of included modules is impressive. 1) payment platforms, 2) shipping platforms, 3) Google Analytics, 4) recaptcha, 5) customer, order & sales reporting, and 6) integrated error logs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Bitnami provides a faultless 'one button' deployment to the Cloud.

Pros: Free, Secure, Good Performance, A lot of features.

Cons: Not that many extensions available in the market.

Overall: We have been using AbanteCart for a few months now and are very happy, I have made a few minor code changes to add a few features that I use, we switched to AbanteCart from OpenCart.

The only downside I can think off hand would be that AbanteCart is not as popular as OpenCart and others so there are not very many extensions and themes available in the AbanteCart Market.

Features such as RSS feeds and Sitemap generation must be purchased on the marketplace.

There are a lot of features included in Abantecart, everything you would typically need so you don't have to spend a cent on the marketplace, performance is very good with their caching system.

Pros: Abante I like the store console. I quickly managed to help myself to set up categories and products. setting other parameters makes me a bit harder, but mostly I manage.

Cons: But what's the problem? I can not find any upgrades for my language that I use Serbian. Some positions in the store can not be removed which I do not need. There are also things that can be corrected, such as the length of the text that can be entered, for example, for private police, for privacy policy, for site conditions.

Overall: for the time being I still do not have any benefits because it is still in the working phase

Pros: Abantecart It is a tool that gives you options to drive your chain systems for your products and guarantees a very effective and remarkable performance. This is due to the fact that with it you can manage quantities, prices, actions among others. For our organization, it has been very helpful and has a high degree of reliability and efficiency has been noted.

Cons: The updates can be a little messy and confusing.

The administrator's configuration is not very positive and friendly.

Usually missing more free templates for the election

Comments: I have used several shopping carts over the years for various sizes and types of business. Abantecart is a very good cart, attractive for the user and easy to edit for admin. I recommend joining the community forum - it's a fast way to find answers to set-up queries.

Only drawback with the cart at the moment is the limited range of extensions to extend functionality - for example there is only a US-English Language extension which means that if you are a UK trader, your website will contain US spellings and it will also default to US locations on some of the postal extensions. This state of affairs could be remedied by adding a UK-English Language extension to the range of extensions on offer. I am sure that this will happen in the future as more UK users come on board.

All in all, this is a minor gripe which can be worked around if you are shopping cart savvy.

I am very happy with Abantecart thus far.

Pros: You can use AbanteCart for any type of store, and can fully customize it with a great collection of modules and themes.

The best experience you can have with this software is that you can host it anywhere, being a not that resource hungry software.

It has a clean an easy dashboard for administrators, and you can edit all the settings easily

Cons: The software is free, but the modules can rack up, if you try to build a good and very up to date ecommerce solution for your customers.

Better than ZenCart because it's easier to set up. Some issues but overall excellent.

Pros: Easy to set up. Good help most of the time in the forums to help get over the humps. Pretty happy overall.

Cons: A lack of templates - Might be good though as I had to figure out all of the code and places to customize my E-Comm store. What could use major attention is rewriting the manuals with more details for the how to stuff. I think this is intentional. There is just enough info to get you in a mess and then head to the forum for help.

Overall: I was able to set up my store pretty quick.

I like it. I wish I had found this before I spend a lot of money with other products.

Pros: It does pretty much everything a shopping cart needs to do. USPS shipping is important to me and that works just fine.

Cons: Just small stuff. The reports option doesn't seem very sophisticated. I like to check to see how many items I have sold over a period of time. It seems to not work correctly as I get some weird numbers. Maybe I need to check out the function further.

Overall: Lowered my software cost.

So far, this has been one of the easiest setup out of all the Ecommerce scripts. Thank you!

Comments: Very good module. Have actual combat, not just the appearance of a strong.

More details on the collection of user feedback. For example, a unified classification of products (perhaps, but not yet found.) In addition, the page link SEO operation to achieve the difficulty, in accordance with the tutorial operation, is still not successful, but also need to further study. Why not directly generate HTML SEO static link?

Vendor Response

by AbanteCart on May 26, 2016

Thank you for your comments

Activation of SEO requires only 1 file update and switching setting to ON. File update is specific to hosting set up, and easily done as per instructions.

SEO static links are generated automatically when you create/edit the product.

Possibly that you did not notice this.

Pros: A lot of free bundled modules in this platform. Very tight community around it, everybody wants to help. You can manage is very simple and adds time to engage customers.

Cons: The prices and disponibility of some modules are not that great, some code has to be written from scratch, but if you want something simple is ok.

Good But Needs Small Changes

Comments: AbanteCart is good software on which to build a online store. I do enjoy it, however i find that it has a few minor weaknesses that need to be taken into consideration. With the constant changing economy and the currencies fluctuating in their exchange values regularly, there needs to be a more automated way to update the currencies from a central server. This way admins don't have to log in every 15 mins to consistently change this detail to avoid losses. A few free templates to assist users in having options in making their store look good is always good. AbanteCart has a block that provides the user with an option to say thank you to abantecart to advertise their product as well.

Comments: Hi Guys !!!

This is the first time I' m testing Abante and it looks pretty good !

I have a tiny little problem with index.php & config.php.

The platform wants to change the permissions of these files.

Although the permissions have been changed, Abante insists [???]

This happens to the updated version 1.2.4. I don't know if this is a bug, but you are kindly requested to fix it.

Try it !!!

This is not a bug. Make sure you put permission the way that your web server can not write to these 2 files.
This is done to enforce security of your web application.

Great experience with this software!

Comments: This software is very easy to setup and manage. Most of my web development experience is with wordpress, but there are some security risks such as brute-force attacks and also vulnerabilities with certain plugins so I decided to choose AbanteCart for my online store.The major plus about AbanteCart is that it comes with everything you need to sell products online. No searching for plugins and stuff. My only gripe is learning how to manage the homepage slider other than that this software rocks and I definitely recommend it for your online store because it's very manageable.

Pros: easy to manage and able to meet expectation of the user (who manage the store). no free theme is there (less) but its ok. wont hurt to provide few free themes just for getting user the feel and need to use the system until decided to pay for better themes.

Cons: cannot add same payment/same method twice. e.g: to have flat rate shipping as 5 for total value more than 150 and rate = 10 for value lower than 150..

Pros: Should be good, because it's easy enough but as mentioned above, every time it upgrades, it's about 20 hours work for me!! Not good at all

Cons: Too annoying to mention. Dont upgrade and stuff things up, thanks.

Overall: If it would stop replacing my pics with it's own sandbox pics every time it does an upgrade, I would be happier. I am definitely going to use something else. Not the first time this has happened. Extremely ticked off!

Recommendations to other buyers: Yes. Look for something else.

Pros: I'm using the free version, and it seems it has everything even for its free users... You have a big heart. I hope it will continue and you are not going to cut anything for us. Second the best part of this wonderful utility is it's admin interface. Very easy to use and human friendly. I give you a five start without any hesitation.

Cons: Some difficulty I have faced in user management specially when disabling and deleting users. But overall it's a fantastic tool.

Overall: I have my own online store. What a dream come true :)
