The real cost of 3dcart vs. the real cost of Business Catalyst

Everything you need to sell online vs. a basic eCommerce solution

Business Catalyst offers only one eCommerce plan for $38.88/month, and limits its users in just about every way: storage, email, eCommerce tools, support channels, and even the number of admin users. Of course, you can always increase a few of these services by paying an extra fee each month.

3dcart is everything you need to sell online, with unlimited email accounts, storage, admin users, and 24/7/365 support by phone, chat and email, with every plan. We want you to have all the tools you need to succeed, and we’re not about to nickel-and-dime you by enforcing unnecessary caps and limitations.

An innovative shopping cart platform vs. a simple cart

Theme selectionTheme selection

Business Catalyst uses tables for their website designs, which not only means their users have a difficult time customizing their themes, but more importantly, that websites aren’t mobile-friendly. 3dcart offers more than 100+ gorgeous responsive themes, so that desktop, tablet and smartphone visitors all have an equally excellent shopping experience.

Learning curveLearning curve

Business Catalyst’s difficult-to-use platform features a steep learning curve that results in customers abandoning ship after only days. 3dcart’s platform is built for user-friendliness, without comprising your ability to customize the front and backend experience, or the number of advanced features and tools available.

Business Catalyst holds their customers hostage by not supporting any method for exporting or extracting data. 3dcart easily allows customers to export important information such as customers, orders, products, categories, checkout questions, and much more.
