So, you want to have an online shop, eh? With the world getting smaller and smaller, soon we will be able to order Italian pizzas from all over the world straight from Italy. I can’t imagine there is a living soul who doesn’t know and appreciate the benefits of online shopping. So naturally every business owner on the planet has or is planning to have an online shop or at least present his products in one. And with the high demand for online shops comes the high demand for e-commerce platforms.
This is where AbanteCart steps in to show the other e-commerce platforms who’s boss. Its intuitive, easy-to-use, and feature-packed administrative panel is just for you. Especially if you are like me and don’t find PrestaShop’s going back and forth menus and sub-menus, just to change one value, convenient. In AbanteCart’s back-end you can just go to the products page, change the value you want from there and save it immediately. It is that easy and you can do the same for whichever value you might think of.
Moreover, the default theme is absolutely sleek and professional-looking, you will probably not need to purchase another theme for your shop when you see the html5 slider and the added functionality included. After all, who wouldn’t want a responsible and easily manageable professional theme for their online shop and with AbanteCart you receive just that out-of-the-box. And if that is not enough, there is a free additional theme in the Extensions Store, just as good as the default one.
So now you are gonna ask me ‘what’s the catch?’ The catch is that AbanteCart is a relatively new e-commerce platform and as such there aren’t as many extensions and modules as you would probably like. Of course, all of the necessary and most of the not-so-necessary functionalities are already included with the application itself but if you desire something more specific, the odds are that it won’t have been made yet. For example there aren’t enough language packs yet and you would probably need to translate some things yourself if you wish to setup shop in let’s say Dutch.
But with its community growing each day, everyone is expecting a lot more and various extensions to pop up soon and satisfy even the most uncommon of desires. What’s more, the AbanteCart developers have already announced the upcoming release of a new AbanteCart Marketplace which will give everyone the opportunity to sell their extensions. But until then you can always play around with the existing extensions and create some online shops, I would definitely recommend you installing the Facebook and Google Login, the Google Checkout extensions, and the Mobile Template.
To sum up, AbanteCart is a professional and intuitive e-commerce application with easy and functional administrative panel, and is showing so much promise, that the other platforms started bashing it already. If you are looking for an easy-going and fun experience, while setting up a new online shop, which to look naturally beautiful on any device, then AbanteCart is just the thing for you.
