“It handles many options with no performance drop”

OverallOverall 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.
Prosthe 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.
ConsAbantecart 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.

“Best PHP shopping cart I have used”

OverallThis 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.
ProsThis 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).
ConsNot 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.

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

OverallIt's free, easy to use, and secure.
ProsThis 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.).

“Wonder full Product still need Improvement”

OverallI 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
ProsAll of the above Its FREE and its very user friendly and feature rich. Nice Layout. Full fill all requirements.
ConsNo Flexibility, We have to be strict what is offered. No Theme options available. Admin settings needs to be more friendly too.
Recommendations to other buyersThemes 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.”

OverallFeel 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.
ProsAbanteCart 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.
ConsBit 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.

“Great free E-commerce application”

OverallI am impressed with their customer support. I am a regular visitor to their forum http://forum.abantecart.com/ and you can see how responsive they are. I had issues with setting my SSL and I asked a question their and one of their team member replied in few hours that solved my issue.
ProsIt is free and has all the bells and whistles that a standard paid application has
ConsIt does lack on UI which is looks. They should definitely fix it also their documentation is not up-to-date

“Love this shopping cart.”

OverallMaking clients happy with an ecommerce option they could take over when their store was complete.
ProsIt 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.
ConsIt 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!

“Best cart in the world”

OverallHighly recommended for anyone who wants an online shop or store. I have tested a few different carts and this is the best one due to the fast setup of an online store.
ProsEasy to use and easy to sell anything. Updated and very modern, and it is FREE. I sell hosting using abantecart, and 4 other shops i use abantecart for all of them. The standard theme is very shiny and clean too.
ConsNo monthly Subscriptions for customers. Not seen any options for themes, there is only 1 theme, as far as i know, it is ok for me but for more basic users an option of 2 themes would be nice. Bitcoin payments as standard in options.

“Good and Efficient Shopping Cart”

OverallAbanetCart 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.
ProsIt'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.
ConsCan'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.

“I Stopped using AbanteCart Two years Ago”

OverallI had only used AbanteCart on two websites that's over 2 years ago and the experience I wouldn't say was bad for absolutely a free software like that just that it just didn't work well for me the way I expected it to be.
ProsWhen I was still in the race of designing websites and selling them, I did explored AbanteCart. The whole experience was good for an open source ecommerce platform like that. I had literally set up two ecommerce websites with AbanteCart which I found very nice. But my cons
ConsAbanteCart not as I thought, extensions and themes are too expensive and not flexible for customization. The whole system is too stive and requires you to hire an expert from their team before you can customize a lot of the functionalities on like WordPress woocomerce where you have total control to edit and change anything you want.

“1 of the best & user friendly shopping carts ”

OverallThis is 1 of the best shopping carts we have ever experienced in all aspects. User friendly, with simple navigation tools. Great features @ simple access from the control panel and good looking!
Pros100% user, friendly, simple, reliable and effective.
ConsSome minor flaws with php index pages and patches that do not work, but functional despite the issues.
Recommendations to other buyersWish the the support was more personal, we understand that support is only provide to those who purchase the services but one can not make that expense, if owners software are not responsive.

“Best E-commerce solution for developing quick and simple websites”

“Shopping Cart for Small Business”

ProsI use this for my small eCommerce business and it works perfectly for me. Some of the things I love in AbanteCart is the modification of price, coupons, tax/weight/size measurement is easier and automatically included in the generated receipt which is printable and branded.
ConsI do not have any problem till date with AbanteCart but using it for a very large retail store might be otherwise.

“Excellent Product / Intuitive Interface / Extensive Documentation / Comprehensive Modules”

OverallI 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.
ProsOpen source. Comprehensive included modules. Forum support -- less than 1 day in my experience. Documentation. Intuitive interface.
ConsAH. None that I am aware of!
Recommendations to other buyersBitnami provides a faultless 'one button' deployment to the Cloud.

“Very good high performance e-commerce solution”

OverallWe 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.
ProsFree, Secure, Good Performance, A lot of features.
ConsNot that many extensions available in the market.

“positive results thanks to the excellent shopping cart”

ProsAbantecart 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.
ConsThe 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

“ It is not complicated and quickly learned”

Overallfor the time being I still do not have any benefits because it is still in the working phase
ProsAbante 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.
ConsBut 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.

“A good option for advanced users”

ProsYou 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
ConsThe 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.

“good”

ProsIt 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.

“Very Good”

OverallI 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.

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

OverallI was able to set up my store pretty quick.
ProsEasy to set up. Good help most of the time in the forums to help get over the humps. Pretty happy overall.
ConsA 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.

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

OverallThis 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.
ProsI like the ease of use and the quality final product.
ConsI 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.
Recommendations to other buyersNothing at this time. I am still new and just building my site.

“One of the best open source shopping cart systems I've used”

OverallLowered my software cost.
ProsIt does pretty much everything a shopping cart needs to do. USPS shipping is important to me and that works just fine.
ConsJust 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.

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

OverallI'm still learning, but I hope to establish my dream subsidiary.
ProsVery easy to use. Step by step help guide for basic essentials Low cost marketplace. Decent selection of add-ons Easy to navigate and setup
ConsNot enough free templates to choose from. Some of the visual features should also be free. Needs a easier UI for editing files directly. Needs a section for Creating Custom Newsletter

“Cool”

ProsEasy to install and it doesn't have advertising that I can't control. In Fact, I can manipulate every aspect of this app with great ease. My customers quite like it's simplicity too.
ConsHaven't found a problem yet. I estimate that any problem that I come across would be easily fixed. I already have a good understanding of the software.

“Beautiful experience.”

OverallFree, easy to install and easy to use.
ProsAs a web developer, I was able to create an extension payment for one of our customers in no time. AbanteCart is very easy to extend. I was surprised how easy was to create my own extension payment.
ConsLack of documentation. Basically, I had to check other created extension payments in order to build mine.

“Seems to be working so far, haven't got the entire business up and running yet but haven't had issue”

ProsVery 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.
ConsThere needs to be more of an explanation about the meta keywords and seo keywords to better explain them to new users.

“Friendly interface. Functional utility, strong. Operations need to be a basis for a certain website.”

OverallVery 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?

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.

“User Friendly Experience”

OverallI am aming to start a eStore for cosmetics, i thought to test differrent carts. surprisingly AbanteCart is proving to be my first and last shoping cart to test. for now i stop thinking to go and test another cart. I am almost done with my configuration and aiming to shift this test environment into production without any doubt. Thanks to developers for making such a good product for no price but surely i will donate something for this wonderful experience. Thank you AbanteCart

“Great way to start an online shop”

ProsA 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.
ConsThe 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.

ProsEasy to get your products online. Some features are easy to use. Layout is very nice. extensions add ons very helpfull.
ConsSome features a bit difficult for me. Adding some of the extensions and testing is difficult. Also when adding more sizes with different prices there is no way off tracking each cost price but only 1 item
