What do you like best?

Just like any other e-commerce platform it is easy to install and simplicity in terms of use. Just order and pay kind of system. User or admin doesn't have to worried much about it. Again it is in Javascript so not much coding efforts for intermediate developer As it is simple solution you might not have to spend much amount of APIs and templates to configure and use which is one more plus point of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if it was opensource but it is not. That is one of the drawback. Also it is bit difficult to handle backend with API . One more drawback is security as it is developed in Javascript. Definitely it is not for beginners. It is bit hard to get proper documentation of this system and support as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are considering for simple place an order and do payment kind of system and no other fancy features and templates then it is worth considering simpleCart to implemet solution. But if you are looking to provide services like product suggestions , SEO , multiple payment gateways etc then it is not on top compare to other options available in market.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was analyzing all e-commerce platform and came across simpleCart to implement our solution to sell canvas printed photographs and sell clothing and accessories. As mentioned in the positive sides its simplicity and ease of installation are major benefit of this system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The simplicity and the fact that it was very easy to set up and integrate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The fact that it's written in Javascript makes it not very secure. While I can create a nice and elegant ecommerce platform, someone with a bit of front end know-how and skill could technically checkout with a shopping cart full of items for $0. Unfortunately, this was a dealbreaker for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely take it for at least a test spin, it's a fun product and easy to integrate. But be sure this is the product you actually need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I enjoy the level of decoupling from anything backend, and just the general versatility afforded by the fact that it's in JavaScript. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was open source (if it is, I somehow didn't catch it from the website when I used it, so that might be worth clarifying) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think, especially if you have your own backend, it's best to build some kind of API wrapper in JavaScript so instead of having to constantly bridge the gap between simpleCart and the backend, you have a consistent bridge of which the API is all that you'll have to deal with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm essentially solving two problems

1) getting eCommerce going for a business that isn't online-first

2) ensuring that the technology can be passed on to a decent web developer when I leave

It's beneficial because of the general low activation energy in setting it up and maintaining. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simplicity.. It's very easy to create a scope of an ordered products, display and manipulate with it. Like many others, I love to have system under control, minimize third party extension income and create best experience for the user. Web/App user doesn't need to know what is under the hood, he just want to use it, make an order and pay it. If SimpleCart is applied in the right way, it can fulfil all the requirements which are now stored in the more heavier and compex e-commerce systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Awful documentation ;). Sometimes is very hard to understand all the functions and parameters for the beginners. Also, simpleCart does not solve everything alone, but it must be always use with some backend to save, store, e-mail data. There could be a good activity to fill some documentation topics about it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When the client desires simple ordering platform to sell goods, I always consider the simpleCart js as a first option. It's very easy to install and integrate. For the experienced javascript developer, it's the opportunity to create order platform in a minutes. And i find this very attractive ;) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of configuration and flexibility. Setting it up was really easy and quick (I only use the paypal functionality) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The online documentation is not very easy to follow, although I hardly needed to use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The quick setup was really the biggest benefit, I only neede a simple shopping cart for PayPal customers. I'm not sure how good it would work for more complex applications Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
