The real cost of 3dcart vs. the real cost of GoDaddy Online Store

A complete eCommerce solution vs. a basic cart for beginners

There’s a reason GoDaddy Online Store (GDOS) requires your credit card just to experience their trial, and why plans require a year-long contract. With limited features, themes, payment options, and a 2.9% + $0.30 transaction fee, GDOS is an ideal platform for eCommerce beginners that have few requirements or expectations.

3dcart is the one platform you need to easily build a beautiful, successful online store. With countless features, 24/7 support, and no transaction fees or contract, you’ll be able to setup, manage, and grow the online store you always dreamed of, without hassle, and without fear of hidden fees.

3dcart vs. GoDaddy Online Store functionality comparison

An innovative shopping cart platform vs. a simple cart

Theme selection

GDOS offers a paltry 16 themes, none of which can be previewed unless you’ve signed a year-long contract. But the more alarming caveat is that you’ll have to rebuild your entire online store from scratch if you ever decide to change templates. 3dcart offers more than 100+ gorgeous responsive themes, which can be changed at any time without your store being affected.

Integrations and add-ons

Enhance the functionality of your online store and improve your customers’ shopping experience with 3dcart’s REST API and access to one of eCommerce’s largest app stores, offering 400+ apps for everything from accounting and drop shipping to marketing and security. GDOS has no app store or API support.

“Customizing a template with GDOS is a chore, and it’s near impossible to get any help from their support. 3dcart is not only easy to setup and customize, but all of their great features makes running an online store just plain fun.”

Payment solutions

GDOS supports only two payment methods, Stripe and PayPal Express, giving merchants little control in how they accept and process payment. 3dcart gives you the freedom to choose from 100+ ready-to-use payment solutions that best meet your business’s needs, with no additional transaction or integration fees.
