Pros: Very straight forward and easy to use. It's easy to figure out what you need to do and figure out how to do it. The interface is well organized as is the main store front. It keeps the look simple and not to flashy.

Cons: There needs to be more of an explanation about the meta keywords and seo keywords to better explain them to new users.

Pros: Easy to get your products online. Some features are easy to use. Layout is very nice. extensions add ons very helpfull.

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.

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.

Pros: What I like most about AbanteCart is that it's a free platform that comes with support from a community of experts and how easy it is to setup.

Cons: It is not easy to customize and integrated with other tools and services, Users have to rely on the community of developers to come up with something close to what they need.

Recently installed Abantecart for my site and found it to be an amazing shopping cart system.

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.

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.

Love this shopping cart.

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

Cons: I wish I had a diagram of each area of the site and where to go to edit it. A sort of map that says, the contact or about us part of the webpage is edited by going here... The slide show on the front page is edited by going here.

Overall: This is a great product. I liked all the options and how easy it was to build my store. I hope I have selling success using the product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Nothing at this time. I am still new and just building my site.

Comments: I tried AbanteCart after trying a different e-commerce cart with very unsatisfying results. I'm sorry I even wasted my time with the other cart (who shall remain nameless) because I am so pleased with AbanteCart. It's very user-friendly, easy to install and you can design it to fit your needs with ease. I have nothing but good things to say about this product. For a FREE e-commerce product, AbanteCart is SUPERB!

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: 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.

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.

but I found a difficulty in shiipping extension, is there any shipping extension in south east asia, escpecially in Indonesia? because indonesia have a potensial market for online marketing, ane we must also have a powerful and dedicated shipping extension for Indonesia country.

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.

Easy to install and add products. Love the block layout function.

Comments: AbanteCart offers a great alternative Do-It-Yourself shopping cart solution. The extensions are reasonably priced and are typically a one time license fee instead of ongoing monthly prices. Sure, a person should have a little bit of knowledge about using FTP software and updating files in the server folders and how to handle tar zip files. But it's a small learning curve if you're into it.

This is exactly what I have been looking for for years! Thank you very much!

However, this software is very good overall.
I wish "Abente Cart" made the world's famous.

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.

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 !!!

Vendor Response

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.

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: 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.
