I made a table to compare cs-cart, magento, prestashop, x-cart, cubecart, opencart, axiscommerce and shopware, CS-Cart is the best! :grin:

However, I would expect that "Product Reviews" and "Image Uploader" on cs-cart to be improved

Magneto ? pushed by developers because it makes a nice "look" and has many plugins but the cost to make it usable is far more then any other cart on the market, particularly for none USA sites.

I am using XC and I can tell you did a poor evaluation of this shopping cart. Just an example of many you gave it 3 stars for Product Comparison. Well, my friend this is so bad. Comparing with all these solutions XC Feature Comparison is the most featured. Please try being observer, not addicted to a special software. Also some untrue things about Magento, Prestashop and Open Cart. Before call "CS-Cart is the best" do a deeper investigation and spend months with all these solution. I like CS-Cart, but in fact all have something that other don't. If someone will suck all good things from all and create a new platform, that one should be called "the best".

IECSP you may want to add the new creloaded into you comparisons, they are moving away from base oscommerce code to produce something special and totally responsive. http://www.loaded7.com/

It is just an attempted off-shoot of opencart based on the VQMod framework, difference is it costs $700.00 plus to have any essential B2B features, nothing impressive there............ Regarding having a "Responsive Design", well, this is also a base feature in CS-Cart 4.x 8)


BTW, Albert, feel free to use my freakin review if you like! :grin:

Interesting but there's a lot of subjective opinion in any list like that. I've used CS-Cart and CubeCart extensively and how you come up with some of your ratings (free shipping for instance) is beyond me.

Cs-Cart the best!!! :grin: This is Add-ons list (no 4.0.x :-( ): http://cscartmarket....-market-add-on/

cs cart will broken down if you have huge data. In my case I uploaded 1.5 lakh products and it went down, trying very hard to make it working but can't help. MySQL optimization, server optimization everything is done. Also done the changes suggested by cs cart team but no help. So CS cart is not for you if you have a big database, it can handle 5k to 6k products and not more than this. Planning to move to Magento

Not true. I have 2 stores each with 30,000+ products and 1 store with 60,000+ products all on shared hosting and they run just fine.

i also have a cs site with 22k products, zero issues so you must have something wrong going on there..my site has been stable for 3 years with virtually zero problems..the odd hack attempt aside.

Hi...
I want to implement Cs-cart for my business, but my System Advisor tells me I shouldn't do it because it is a open source software and could be exposed to hacking for back doors in the software ...
Please, could anyone help me or tell me their experience with the CS-Cart software in this matter.

Dear James,

CS-Cart is secure software by itself if CS-Cart directories and files have correct permissions, and there are default CS-Cart .htaccess files in the necessary directories. To learn more about the permissions, please refer to this article in our Knowledge base:

http://kb.cs-cart.com/permissions

Please let me note that the .htaccess files protect the directories with 777 permissions from outside attacks, so nobody will have an access to the protected directories via the Internet. The attacker will get forbidden error. Please let me note that if the attacker knows your FTP address, they can upload a malicious code. Please check how it works in our demo store. The following links are forbidden:

http://demo.cs-cart.com/images/
http://demo.cs-cart....asic/templates/
http://demo.cs-cart.com/var/

Also, CS-Cart is designed to meet the latest security requirements, and one of such requirements is PCI compliance. Please refer to the following page of our website to learn more about this security standard:

https://www.cs-cart....compliance.html

You may also want to examine this article on how to protect your admin panel:

Thank you.
