PROS / CoreCommerce's security features and ease of use are higher than the standard.
CONS / It limits storage space even with its top plan.
VERDICT / Because it limits storage space, CoreCommerce is a good plan if you have a small inventory.
CoreCommerce eCommerce software is easy to use and contains excellent security features to ensure that your information is safe and that no one can steal credit card or other personal information from your site. However, this is one of the few eCommerce website hosts that limits memory space, even in its highest-tier plan. If you have a small business with limited products and no need for a lot of video, downloadable materials or high-density images, the plans should more than suffice.
This eCommerce software receives full marks for its interface. The simple-to-navigate software makes setting up and maintaining your online store hassle free. No matter what plan you select, you get access to all of the program's features. The differences lie in the size of bandwidth, storage space and products. Depending on the plan, you have a limit of 150 to unlimited products, but storage maxes out at 50 GB. While a hefty amount, if you want to load a lot of high-quality images or videos, you might want to check out other eCommerce platforms that allow unlimited storage.
CoreCommerce excels in security features. Not only does it secure your data to 256-bit SSL, which is over the standard, it offers fraud-protection and fraud-scoring capabilities. While most other eCommerce platforms offer fraud protection, only a few offer scoring, which evaluates purchasers for risks and alerts you to possible fraudulent transactions.
It offers a large feature set with tools to help you design your eCommerce website, manage your inventory, create reports and more. The administrative interface is as easy as the setup of the eCommerce website itself. CoreCommerce provides useful reports so you know exactly how your business is doing, although they are not customizable. It integrates with QuickBooks and has a mobile-responsive admin section for running your business on the go.
This eCommerce platform offers nearly all the shopping cart and marketing tools we looked for in our research. You can run affiliate programs, have reward programs for frequent buyers or loyal customers, and post daily deals. You can also have customer reviews of products and offer suggestions for upsell. Some features that set it apart from the pack include the ability to program the store in multiple languages and have a live chat to field customer questions.
Even though CoreCommerce is easy to work with, you may run into issues. If so, customer support is just a phone call, live chat or email away. There are searchable FAQs and a large number of how-to videos that walk you through the features.
CoreCommerce is a friendly and useful eCommerce platform for setting up your online store. Its multitude of features come as part of every pricing plan, and while its upper limit on storage space is smaller than many top eCommerce programs, it's still sizable. The security features are excellent. Overall, it's a strong choice for new stores and stores that don't have large data-storage needs.
