woooww Fotis, very good point.


but I know that there is some people who makes a serious money by selling themes and add-on for wordpress. for that reason, I have asked, "what is modern design? can you show any example".

if cs-cart theme is "old fashion" then show the "modern design" end if.


I have tried 3 times to answer with an example of a random live site, but my post probably was not approved!

Hi

Have a look on this live site

Electrofun.gr

Don't judge the banners as customer changes those after a while, so our original design is not the same.

Examin the functionality and the extra features.

On the other side a simpler design is espiti.gr where customer works Wonders with banners

Another example is Dbmelectronics.gr

Those are just a few simple examples.

Not only themes, even the number of addons is very poor. I am just thinking which other cart should I migrate to in the next 3 months...Definitely fed up of cs-cart with lack of developers locally.

and finding developers who will spend time to learn CS-Cart is very difficult. I have spent numerous hours talking to developers about projects but as soon as I tell them it is going to be on CS-Cart, they bail. The documentation finally got to a point where it makes sense. Up until last year, I would read their tutorial and documentation many times and wouldn't understand how you would use hooks, addons, my_changes and lot of other things. There are still lots of components missing in the documentation. It is so sluggish you start wondering if the people who own CS-Cart don't even care.

Why not to search for top 10 popular themes for Wordpress or Prestashop and do the same or similar for CS CART.



 

Posted 28 May 2018 - 05:32 AM #32

I took what I would like to call a gamble, or at least thought was, going with CS Cart in the beginning. 2.7 star rating from what i remember, don't remember the citing. Unless I am a complete idiot, which I very well may be, I have not had any major issues with CS Cart that I had with magento and wordpress/woocommerce before.

 

Woocommerce multi vendor was so terrible, I would wonder waking up whether or not I would be having a PayPal conflict that day and even be able to accept payments. 

 

I'm not a developer, but as far as I can tell with add-ons, and the amount of devs you can get to help with mods, you aren't going to find an out of the box solution that won't ultimately cost you. 

 

CS Cart is a bit pricey but I can say I am 110% satisfied with the switch I made and I wouldn't be doing what I do without it. The themes are what you make them... Also great out of the box!

 

My 2 Cents...

 

Also thanks to the CS Cart community for the support!

CS-Cart came along way in past 6 years but it was very bumpy experience. If you are running very simple ecommerce operation that is OK with the basic offerings that CS-Cart offers, it is great! Others who need integration, customization more functions, not so much.

Its simple css coding, order templates what you need or design what you need in psd. Its not difficult and expensive. Not correct compare widespread cms with cs-cart. I'm develop theme and sell 5-10 copy. But creating theme for WP its are times more profitable.

Layout mechanism in cs-cart allows combine all what you want, but stagnant more deeper html change in cs-cart.

One try was boilerplate. We are creating several sites: https://omh.com.ua/ru/http://camping.kz/

Its more lightweight html code. And more faster render.

How will you get developers to create cs-cart themes when cs-cart is still using bootstrap v2.3 but the world has moved on to bootstrap 4 and above.

Well, they are planning everything for CS-Cart 5 (Post CSS, Bootstrap 5, etc.) and not updating the current release candidate. Which is both a good and bad thing.

Several of my established cs-cart clients are moving on to other shopping carts. I guess it’s time to start learning a new one. Cs-cart was a good solution over the last 10 years. I am not sure I can say that anymore.
