基本的在线商店功能 – as matured ecommerce platforms, both Shopify and 3dcart offer satisfactory basic functionalities for running an estore. Shopify, however, is popularly perceived to be at least a slightly better of the two platforms, a view that is generally shared by the author of this review.
库存管理 - 3dcart的入门计划（$ 19.99 /月。) is priced a bit higher than that of Shopify ($ 9 /月。), 3dcart allows you to sell up to 200 products on this plan while Shopify restricts this number to 25. All higher-priced Shopify plans allow an unlimited number of products while 3dcart has a tired structure, with unlimited products allowed on their top two plans.
运费计算 – this happens to be one of the basic features of an ecommerce platform and both Shopify and 3dcart handle this quite efficiently.
提供优惠券和折扣代码 – Shopify is at a slight disadvantage here, as it does not allow this on the starter plan but only on the higher ones. 3dcart allows creation and calculation of discount/promo codes on all the plans.
支付网关选项 – this happens to be one more area where 3dcart out-performs Shopify, with support for as many as 200 payment gateways and methods as compared to 70 offered by Shopify.
主题和模板 – Shopify comes out as the clear winner here, with hundreds of (free and paid/premium) themes available directly via their theme store as well as many third-party sites, while 3dcart offers only about thirty free themes. Shopify premium themes also start cheaper at $80 while 3dcart premium themes are $99 and higher.
In terms of responsive themes (themes that work well on any access device and screen) too, Shopify 有优势，提供了大量主题，而3dcart提供的主题数量非常有限。
应用和附加组件 - 这两个平台绑定在一起，既可以直接使用100应用程序和附加组件，也可以通过第三方付费和免费模式，以便为您的在线添加各种类型的特殊/自定义功能和功能店面。
多语言功能 – no site-wide multi-lingual capabilities are offered by either platform. However, Shopify offers this to a limited extent by way of multi-lingual support on the checkout pages while 3dcart offers limited support for languages that are based on the Cyrillic script. With both platforms, for closer implementation of multi-lingual capabilities, you have to resort to either hand-coding or third-party tools/support.
SEO功能 - 两者 Shopify 3dcart 提供高水平的SEO功能，以帮助您的商店获得大量的 有机 traffic via search engines. However, an important point that should be noted here is that the SEO capabilities offered by Shopify are not only quantifiably better than those of 3dcart but also are the highest amongst all currently available ecommerce platforms, as demonstrated in great detail 在这篇文章中.
定制功能 - 两个平台均提供用户友好的简易模式，您可以使用该模式自定义在线商店的基本元素（如颜色，字体等）以及高级界面，其功能可让您完全自定义外观和感觉您的商店通过HTML / CSS代码。 虽然基本模型通常足以满足大多数具有基本到中级要求的情况，但高级模式可以满足需要更高级别定制的项目。
博客功能 - 两者 Shopify and 3dcart offer integrated blogging functionality – a very useful feature for ecommerce stores today. As discerning web marketers, SEOs and ecommerce store owners have known for long, publishing a blog on your online store is one highly valuable and beneficial method of attracting, engaging and retaining customers with the end result of boosting sales. A blog also allows you to tell stories to facilitate (soft) sell – something that is emerging as a major ecommerce trend, as discussed in my post: 10为2015开启了令人瞩目的电子商务趋势.
正如我在本文开头附近提到的， Shopify 和3dcart都是非常容易使用但功能强大的电子商务平台。
设置费 –都不 Shopify nor 3dcart charge any setup fees and actually, both offer free trials – Shopify for 14 days and 3dcart for 15, so as to allow you to take their ecommerce platforms for a test drive for yourself.
月费 – Shopify 提供四种不同的计划，月费从$ 9到$ 299，如下所示：
- 精简计划：$ 9
- 基本计划：$ 29

3dcart提供五种计划，月费从$ 19.99到$ 129.99，如下所示：
- 迷你计划：$ 19.99
- 入门计划：$ 35.99
- 专业计划：$ 65.99
- 专业加计划：$ 99.99
- 电源计划：$ 129.99
带宽费用 - 任何平台都不会对任何计划收取任何带宽使用费。
交易手续费 – 3dcart charges no transaction fees on any of their plans (the standard transaction fees of the gateway you choose would apply, though.). Nor does Shopify, if you use their own payment gateway. If you use any of the third-party gateways, Shopify的交易费用结构如下：
精简计划（$ 9 /月）：2％
基本计划（$ 29 /月）：2％
高级计划（$ 79 /月）：1％
无限计划（$ 299 /月）：0.5％
主题/模板价格 – both platforms offer a good number of free as well as paid themes, with premium theme prices starting from $80 at Shopify and $99 at 3dcart.
虽然 Shopify and 3dcart are both quite robust and powerful ecommerce platforms, Shopify offers greater ease of use and superior SEO capabilities, as discussed above. 3dcart在提供200支付网关方面的优势是不可否认的，所以如果您打算开一家更大的商店，请查看它。
The availability of a (much) larger number of free and responsive themes at Shopify is another factor that tips the balance in favor of Shopify. All in all, after weighing the pros and cons of both platforms, Shopify would come out the winner but would encourage you to start a trial for both if you’re not sure.
