Opencart is one of the world’s most popular open source ecommerce platforms, it only made sense that I review it. And for this review, I am going to be looking at the Pricing, Performance, What is is like to use and the Support options available.

  1. Tried installing a free theme, but it wasn't giving me the option to upload the file using FileZilla, all the tutorials I can find are using PC & as a Mac user I find tutorials difficult to follow. Also, the fact that I know nothing about websites doesn't help. 🙁 Thank you for making this though.

  2. Thank you for providing great review of opencart in this video!

    I would like to know how to add option for another currency apart from default ones? I need to add Indian currency Rupees to Opencart.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Hi there! This channel is just absolute gold, especially for us small business owners trying to get a website up and looking to see what options are available to us. Just wanted to say thank you and keep going. ~~Cheers~~

  4. hello I have a problem with the visanet plugin, when I try the purchase process this message appears and it does not allow payment "At a minimum, the action, channel, merchantid, sessiontoken, amount and purchasenumber options have to be set" Could you help me? I don't know what I'm doing wrong 🙁

  5. Can you please make a video on opencart like booking a domain, hosting setup, installing open cart from c pannel, theme installation (best theme for medical store) home page setup with that theme… Etc

  6. Am halfway through an opencart site and would like your opinion on a user friendly alternative that will scale if it all goes well. Mydev said the latest updates were sketchy/failed so have lost a bit of confidence in it.

  7. Really nice to take us through the pros and cons, really well paced thank you.

    Would be great to see more of the potential, like examples of UI customisation which is what a lot of designers are looking for, like screenshots of great looking opencart UI tricks and design patterns, linking to a guide to achieve that or something. Will have to check your website I guess and do some googling!

    Really nicely made vid, succinct, perfect attitude — liked and subscribed to see what you have to say next!

    My vote for more well delivered content (aside from shop UI mentioned above eg: modifying Journal theme button layout to look better, or overlaying succinct 'add to cart' icon on images instead of an ugly clunky button etc) is a roundup of alternatives to PayPal and Stripe – aimed more towards startups and businesses shifting lower numbers as opposed to "mass e-commerce".

    Thanks, I appreciate this style of delivery as it's so effortless and comfortable to learn otherwise colourless info.
