OpenCart Ecommerce, what is it?

OpenCart Ecommerce is a user friendly, feature rich, open source, ecommerce solution that we love. Tristar are registered partners with Opencart.

OpenCart is a powerful open source shopping cart system that is designed to be feature rich and user friendly at an affordable cost.

OpenCart Ecommerce is an ‘out of the box’ pre-developed shopping cart solution that can be utilised to produce a fully featured ecommerce solution at a more cost effective price to a bespoke ecommerce website, allowing you to trade on-line simply and effectively.

This solution however does not suit all; as some businesses require functionality that may sit outside of the framework of an off the shelf package and does require a fully bespoke solution.

What you get with OpenCart Ecommerce
Tristar Web Solutions will utilise the OpenCart ecommerce framework to set-up, implement and build your website. We will implement OpenCart ecommerce and add all the specific modules for your site to give the functionality that you need. We will then thoroughly test the functionality and modules to make sure that the site works efficently and smoothly.  We will then present your site ready for you to add the finishing touches; your content.

Additional Functionality
As a modular system it is possible to upgrade and improve your site with additional features in the future. A less expensive proposition than bespoke development as the modules exist it is simply a case of implementing the modules/ patches and making the relevant changes and tests within the site structure to allow these to work smoothly within the site thereby reducing the cost of future development.

Design Template
To keep initial costs to a minimum your site can use the standard template with Logo and colour changes to match your brand. For a small additional cost Tristar will use premium templates that will give a stronger look and some additional functionality. It is also possible to produce a unique bespoke Opencart Ecommerce design or you can start with a template and we can easily re-skin your website with a new design in the future without affecting your content.
