OpenCart vs WooCommerce: Overview

They’re both ways for your customers to buy your products and check out quickly and securely. Although the purpose is the same, the execution is different. As such in this comparison analysis of OpenCart vs WooCommerce, we’re going to take a look at different aspects of both eCommerce platforms.

WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin. It integrates seamlessly with your existing WordPress site without having to do much legwork. It was developed specifically for WordPress sites. You’ll have a guided installation with support to get everything started.
