  • We do use Core Commerce and have no issues with them. They seem to be good and to the best of my recollection we have not experienced any outages. If we did, it was long ago and short.

    However, it may be noted that we do not, at the moment, use their full capability as we do not yet actually sell online. That will change in the future.

  • Until about 2 years ago I would have given Corecommerce a high recommendation, but I can’t anymore. I get complaints from customers who cannot get their orders to go through at least once a week — and I’ve got to assume there are many more who do not contact me about the same thing. There are other problems, too, but there’s nothing worse than having frustrated customers and lost sales due to glitches in the host’s software. For other issues their tech support is very helpful and they are great to work with. But they give me a run-around every time I contact them about this crucial issue of “stuck” orders.

    I’m in the process of moving to WooCommerce.

  • we currently use the CoreCommerce platform for our online store and we’ve been very happy with it as an e-commerce platform and would highly recommend it. The CoreCommerce platform offers a really good value when it comes to feature/functionality for the price but it really depends what your needs are as to whether CoreCommerce is a good fit for any given organization. The main downside for us is that they don’t have a drag-and-drop responsive website builder for the front-end like Squarespace or Wix which would be nice. That would be the only major downside we’ve found so far.

    While we don’t advertise it, we also design websites for clients and in those cases we utilize Wix or Squarespace. We really like both of those platforms too and direct people to them all the time.

  • I would highly recommend Core Commerce for anyone with for their website if they are wanting to participate in e-commerce. Core Commerce seems to be very easy to setup, modify, and use. Also, their customer service is very good when you do have any questions or problems. Lastly, they seem to be very affordable for what all they offer.

  • It is horrible. We are in the process of switching over to WIX right now. When I first signed up for CoreCommerce I compared it to a few others out there. I had narrowed it down to CoreCommerce and Big Commerce. Eventually settling on CoreCommerce because of feature set.

    Although they claim to have great support, it is only a claim. I have had nothing but difficulty with them.

  • We do use Core Commerce and would definitely recommend others to use it! We've been using it for over 10 years and it has worked great.

  • Their customer service is superb. The admin panel is easy to use for novice to advance users. It saves so much time and money with all their add-ons and built-in organization. I would recommend it. In all fairness, I don’t have anything to compare CoreCommerce to, as they are the only company I’ve used.

  • We are in the process of switching from CC to a different provider. They sound really nice and make a lot of promises, but never deliver. Customer service and tech issues are lacking and there is no follow through. We can have issues with our page and not see resolution in a timely manner. Buyer beware.

  • Core Commerce is relatively easy to use and has good support. Given that most of us hate dealing with internet companies, I and I do not hate dealing with them, that is a good sign. US based support. I actually have two sites where I use their format. The other is not even a shopping site, but I liked the interface so I used it again and pay for it every month.

  • I think Core Commerce is a good value. We've toyed with the idea of moving to Shopify but it would cost 5X as much for the same features. Core Commerce is a smaller company so it can be a little clunky at times but I'd certainly recommend it.

  • Core Commerce is fabulous. I would 100% have consumers looking to have an online store review core commerce as a potential provider.

  • Core Commerce works pretty well for us. We have had it for 8 years and it started out with reasonable rates and more user friendly. It changed hands and the cost went up and you have to pay for minor fixes. I picked them because I wanted to do the edits on our site. All the free templates are about the same and changing is a hassle. There customer support is pretty good and their payment processor has saved us some money over the past ones we have had.

  • Have used CC for about 10 years after doing my own research and trying out some others.

    I have recommended them in the past to others.

  • I would not recommend Core Commerce in most cases. It works fine as an ecommerce site, but its functionality is limited, it’s integrations are not on par with other options, and it does not seem to be worth the price paid. It is also difficult to use.

    Flag
  • I probably would. We are not very tech savvy and they have been helpful with getting things to look and work as we wanted. I don't think we fully utilize half of the features but they are there for those who want to.

    Flag
  • We are no longer using Core Commerce and would not recommend it because of their terrible support for their site & terrible communication with their users.

    Flag
  • Using the back end of core commerce I have to say that it is extremely user friendly and simple to use, even for first time users. I highly recommend it, especially because their customer support team is always available to answer any questions you may have.

    Flag
  • I would. We are actually switching to 3d cart in a few months, when the website is ready. Core Commerce is actually pretty good. I have been using them for 7 or 8 years. I haven’t had any problems with them and they are super easy to use and adding products is very easy.

    I am redoing our website completely and figured I may as well switch to a bigger platform if I was doing that. I hope 3d Cart is going to be good.

  • CoreCommerce is great if you have a few a low number of products and sales volume. Their customer service is fantastic! The user interface is pretty intuitive and easy to use. It was a great cost-to-value as we started out.

    As we have grown, now we are looking to integrate with our other systems and add functionality. So we will plan to upgrade to Magento this year as CoreCommerce lacks the integration we need.

  • We’ve been using Core Commerce for a number of years now and I have really nothing about which to complain. We as a company have therefore not searched for an alternative as this seems to be working well. Any problems which arise are quickly resolved by their IT staff.

  • I would recommend CoreCommerce. I am a web designer and built several stores on the system. The one you found is my own which I ran for years. I find the system easy to use and it has a massive amount of settings. As a web designer, I appreciate the fact that the designs are really easy to customize with custom css. With Shopify, I need to learn their proprietary language. With Bigcommerce, I found the system extremely cumbersome and difficult to use.

    One other plus that I did not find in any other system is that you can easily set up very complicated pricing systems. Like when I have an item that cost differently on each color and size.

    The one really big drawback for a brick and mortar store is that they do not offer an integration with a POS system, like Shopify does.

  • I would highly recommend it as it's very easy to use and it offers lots of great tools! I looked at a lot of different website companies before I ended up choosing Core Commerce. I have nothing bad to say about that whatsoever. They also offer a great integrated credit card processing which is very nice and a built-in shopping cart

  • We do have a core commerce store, and we like it. It’s really the only seller platform we’ve used (outside of amazon) but it’s pretty intuitive and has a lot of options depending on what you’re trying to do. One of the biggest bonuses to using cc is their customer service is really really excellent.

  • I would recommend it.

    It doesn't have the seamless email marketing with mailchimp but that would be the only downside.

  • As for recommendations I would say it depends on the type of business but for us and if we were starting over I would most likely use Shopify. I do not have any personal experience with Shopify, yet, but as our business has grown we've run into hurdles with Core Comm. The biggest limitation is probably product customization. As an on-demand, mass customization manufacturer we cannot list all our color/style option easily and elegantly. Another drawback is their plug-ins and 3rd-party integrations. They are rather limited and rarely added.

    On a positive note their customer support and service is top notch. Products tickets and queries are always answered in a timely manner and they are more the willing to put in the time with those who are not so computer savey.

    So long story I would recommend Core Commerce to a person or business that is looking for a simple, template based platform with great customer support. I would not recommend the platform for anyone that is looking to be on the cutting edge of website building or something greater than plug and play.

  • great customer service. We might be moving on over some of the integration limitations and some scalability issues. But we stuck around with them for over 6 years and they have always been great

  • If you asked me a few years ago I would have said I would definitely recommend. However, I’ve been having some issues with them lately that is making me re-think. While their customer service is very good – I always get to speak to a real person – and they do respond to emails quickly, I have been having issues with listings not appearing correctly when uploaded via spreadsheets. There is something odd going on with the backend that doesn’t seem to want to upload the correct images to match with my products. This is a big problem since a customer who might be interested in ordering will probably not when the image that appears is not the product they are looking at. They say that they are looking into this and that it is with the developers but this issue is going on 2 weeks right now.

    Other than that, the site is pretty straightforward and easy to use.

  • They are a great company with very good tech support here in US. Everything is great with them but from what I understand, a stand alone WordPress site is better for Google placement. That is what I have heard. I'm not an expert and I'm rather tired of having to deal with Google making all the rules.

    But yes I highly recommend Core Commerce. Great bunch of people.

  • Core Commerce is a lot more expensive than Shopify and I’ll be switching to them soon. I’ve been with Core for about 6 years and quiet frankly they haven’t done a lot for me except put their prices up. They are about 30% more than Shopify.

    They sold out to another company about 2-3 years ago and put a pretty new interface on the back end and that’s about the only improvement I’ve seen. After being with them for all this time I thought they might do something like assist with upgrading my Core Commerce template to mobile compatible but when asked about that Core said sure we can do that for $700 USD.

    Yeah, no thanks.

    Changing things like the banner image is clunky and sizing it is awkward in the template. Other aspects of it are not very intuitive. At times, I’ve found the help desk to be slow to assist and to resolve and at times terse, bordering on rude.

    So would I recommend Core Commerce. Not particularly. I’d go with Square Space (a bit $$) or Shopify first. They seem to be the most usable and affordable. I also like that Pay Pal has better rates with Shopify than I can get with a private account.
