What are the best aspects of this product?
We really love Abantecart. the thing that made us switch to Abantecart was the way it deals with product options. all others brands was not meeting our demands here. firstly other brands could not handle the amount of diffrent options. and or the ability to display color ot images.
this Abantecart allows us to create a fulfilling webshop. if you wish you can view it at Strygestof Og Design https://strygestof.dk
the biggest plus to us is that Abantecart is able to handle a huge amount of options without noticable performance draws. this is due to a flat option system that does not interchain each option into one product. but Abantecart still allows to set price, amount and so forth to each option. via a comprehensive jquery script, that handles stock, prices and so forth.
Abantecart has a very easy designer unterface for beginners. as its simply drag and drop. the only downside to this is that somethimes when adding blocks of the design get directed away from this design template. and has to maneuver back again.
it has in our eyes almost every feature you could wish for as a store owner. and with pretty good explanations too
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Abantecart has a rather small array of addons, and a pretty small community that is primarily centered arround making money and not helping with coding for free. but it seems like the developers are quiet active in the forums.
you are unable to communicate with the customers via the webinterface. and relying on e-mails from the customers. you can add notes to orders. but the customer is not able to reply unfortunately.
the newsletter is as i see it built to handle many customers. but lack html features, so no imges or other formatting of newsletters.
there are not many human made translations. but there is a library of machine translated languages and a very neat feature for translating every bit of text via the administration interface., allthough with some text it can be a little hard to guess where it belongs. but its only a matter of checking and trying again.
What features/services would you like to see in future versions of this product?
better support for HTML Email, such as newsletters, enable customer to give feedback and allow gustomers to reorder products from previous order
