We’ve used Cubecart more than anything for dedicated shopping cart sites over the years, it’s a bugger to work with and there’s no built in blog, but it’s stable and very secure.

However WooCommerce has been getting better and better over the last two years and as we prefer using Wordpress anyway we’re now starting to build more sites using WooCommerce.

So answer to the poll Cubecart, but personal favourite WooCommerce.

Thats enlightening, as a user of Cubecart many many moons ago, the “vibe” at the time, was it wasnt that secure so we moved away from it.

It’s been very stable for our clients, certainly since v4. It’s not very developer friendly though, and so over the years we’ve tested out pretty much all of the mid-priced commercial shopping cart software to find an alternative.

Worst ever – TradingEye.

Not a fan of Magento, far too bloated for our requirements, but we like OpenCart.

The big plus for WooCommerce for us though is that it works with Wordpress, and so clients can enjoy all the benefits of a business/promotional site with a built in shopping cart. For clients that want a dedicated shopping cart site though we’d still say CubeCart are the best for the price. Better the devil you know…

2013 February eCommerce Platforms

Favorites among ThemeForest authors is going to be very different from the global usage of eCommerce platforms. From the Alexa Top Million Sites there are 34,864 eCommerce sites and WordPress isn’t even in the top 10 platforms.

WordPress isn’t even in the top 10 platforms.

If you add the WP e-Commerce (11) and Shopp (28) totals together then it puts the Wordpress total above Shopify, and into 9th place.

I’m surprised WooCommerce isn’t in the list, though the survey is relying on ‘technology signatures’ so maybe not picking it up.

Thanks for all the responses, and thanks @GravityDept for that pie chart!

We’ll publish the results shortly! For now, I’m temporarily locking this thread until we can get the results to you. :)

Thanks again everyone! You guys never fail to help!

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

We’ve done the crunching and this is what we came up with.

Of the people who answered, roughly 68% of you identify as being a developer.

These are the overall results.

We decided to delve deeper

We noticed what you identified yourself as (a developer, a non-developer, or a super secret stealth person) affected the results

Interesting huh? Especially when compared with @GravityDept’s data!
