Deciding on ecommerce software for your WordPress site can be overwhelming.
From open-source software to hosted SaaS platforms, there are plenty of options to choose from, and each eCommerce solution comes with its unique benefits. So what makes 3dcart different? And how is it an all-in-one ecommerce solution?
Let’s take an in-depth look into 3dcart, which is widely considered to be one of the most feature-packed eCommerce platforms on the market, to see if it’s worthy of integrating with your WordPress website.
What Is 3dcart?
Founded in 1997 by CEO Gonzalo Gil, 3dcart was created with the goal of streamlining everything an online merchant would need to build and run an online store into a single, comprehensive solution. It’s an all-in-one SaaS hosted eCommerce platform that provides merchants with a long list of features, tools, and integrations to make selling online easier.
Today, 3dcart hosts over 20,000 online stores and regularly updates its software to offer the newest eCommerce tools to merchants.
What Does 3dcart Offer?
There are plenty of useful features that 3dcart offers to make your ecommerce journey worth it.
Shopping Cart Software
Arguably, the most important set of features for the purposes of online selling that 3dcart offers is its shopping cart software.
3dcart gives you total freedom when it comes to creating a custom shopping cart that works both for your website and your customers. Merchants can view, edit, and save carts in addition to enabling either customer accounts or guest checkout. Checkout pages can be customized to be either one-page or three pages – whichever works better for your specific business.
You can also enable real-time shipping rates and set custom shipping types, like free shipping on your online store. Sales tax is easy to set-up with 3dcart’s interface, making it simple for your online business to be tax compliant while also being PCI compliant. There’s also marketing, SEO, and abandoned cart recovery tools built into 3dcart, helping you capture more customers and boost your overall conversion rates.
For integration into your WordPress site, 3dcart offers an HTML buy button that can be added anywhere on your website as a widget.
The Buy Button can display a product’s pricing, stock level, options, and more. Users can click the button and go directly to your custom storefront and checkout, which makes selling directly from your website quick and easy. Adding a Buy Now Button is possible on any website that accepts HTML code, making the possibilities endless for how you integrate ecommerce into your website.
3dcart also offers a front-end API that allows for another method of adding eCommerce functionality to your website. By adding the REST API to your website’s code, you’ll be able to add products, a shopping cart, product categories and more directly to your existing site.
