Open source e-commerce templates are certainly changing the way of starting your own internet business from weeks of developing shopping cart site from scratch to a few hours of installation and basic shop set up. No need to search for a php/asp developer, look through his portfolio, send him dozens of updates, waste your time. No need to reinvent the wheel.
We have been offering templates for open source platforms for many years. We have been working with OsOcommerce, Zen-Cart, Magento, VirtueMart, PrestaShop…
Now we’re glad to introduce a new soldier of our huge template army named Mr. Open Cart. The brand new type of templates indeed premiered spring 2012. While the system has a lot of fans all over the world and Open Cart popularity is rapidly growing each day.
Open Cart templates offer admin backend for adding products, numerous useful modules (like related precuts, search, payment/shipment methods, new products and so on), large community (that will help you to solve any problems) and low start-up capital. You don’t need any additional software to edit the template once it’s live. Open Cart admin page is a kind of a good example of usability that has been improved for many years. Perhaps, even my grandma could manage it easily.
To make a long story short, Open Cart templates inherit all functions of the platform:
- Product Reviews
- Product Ratings
- Downloadable Products
- Automatic Image Resizing
- Multiple Tax Rates
- Related Products
- Discount Coupon System
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Module System
- Sales Reports
So where were we? I’d like to admin, that all open cart templates include theme files, same data and source data, so it will take a few minutes to upload the template on your hosting and make it look like sample live demo.
Still have a couple questions about customization? Feel free to visit our sales chat to get a free quote about installation or customization of open cart templates.
Part 2. Drupal
Drupal templates is a good choice if you need to build your website quickly and don’t want to learn all kinds of html/css coding features. Drupal is a CMS (content management system), so all Drupal sites store content in a database and it’s possible to edit content through admin online page. In other words, you don’t need any advanced html editing skills to create your own site; you’ll have just to learn how to work with Drupal backend.
Drupal templates are easy to customize. Admin page is pretty easy even for non tech-savvy persons. Unlike many other CMS platforms, Drupal backend is “integrated” in the design. No need to search for an article or post/page in your admin interface. You can choose a page you want to edit on your site and just click a button to edit it.
Drupal is a platform that supports themes for easy design change. If you want to update your site design, you can just upload a new Drupal theme through your backend, while site content (articles, images) remains unchanged. A few customization steps and your site has a new look.
Another important feature of the platform is friendly website URLs. It means that all your pages will look like www.site.com/aboutus.html in browsers, not just www.site.com/?q=node/4 . You can also add custom meta tags for each page. These features are very important for search engines.
There are a lot of useful native features in Drupal templates: visual editor for editing content, blog layout, OpenID login, forum, polls, search, comments, statistics and so on.
Drupal templates were developed for community-based websites. As a result they have a powerful user role management. You can create user groups for your site yourself providing them different access to site management (adding articles, editing articles of other members, site admin functions, etc).
If you need any non-standard plug-in, you can easily download it from the official site. Drupal is an open source platform, so there are a lot of free and paid solutions there. You can choose among hundreds of useful add-ons, such as image galleries, video galleries, js animated blocks, latest news, google maps, social media plug-ins, etc.
