Web Hosting ServicesArlington, VA – WebNet Hosting has gone to task, putting the top three e-commerce shopping carts up against one another in a creative infographic just released to the public. A leader in e-commerce hosting solutions for businesses big and small, WebNet Hosting supports various shopping carts such as PrestaShop, Magento, OpenCart, OsCommerce, and more. Here is the link to the infographic, Prestashop vs Magento vs OpenCart – Detail Comparison.

“Many of our e-commerce customers call in to inquire about which shopping cart they should use to build their online store. Most of the time we recommend one from Magento, PrestaShop or OpenCart,” stated Boney Pandya, Marketing Director for WebNet Hosting. “Because we receive so many inquiries about the differences between these shopping carts, we decided to put-together an infographic to make it easier for our customers to understand the distinctions between them.”

Many businesses employ a shopping cart to manage their e-commerce site because it allows stores to manage their website independently, without having to rely on a web developer for every website change.

The infographic released by WebNet Hosting outlines and compares the many features of three top shopping cart applications: PrestaShop, Magento and OpenCart. The graphic evaluates each e-commerce application on various metrics like SEO friendliness, ease of customization and variables for a suitable hosting solution. It also displays Google trends, relaying the popularity of each cart.

Based on the research conducted by WebNet Hosting, Magento seems to be the most popular shopping cart; however, that does not indicate it is the finest choice among e-commerce website owners. According to WebNet Hosting, “PrestaShop and OpenCart are equally good solutions in setting up your online store.”
