About 3dcart and Simvoly

Simvoly vs 3dcart

Simvoly was founded in 2016 by Stanislav Petrov and Ivan Nikolchov after 2 years of development. The company's goals include creating a versatile website builder that includes eCommerce and sales funnel features as well as the ability to create a general-purpose website. They also offer a white-label program that allows businesses to rebrand Simvoly to offer to their own clients. Simvoly is based in Varna and Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

3dcart vs Simvoly

3dcart was founded in 1997 by Gonzalo Gil, based directly on his experience developing custom eCommerce solutions for a wide variety of businesses. Gonzalo used this knowledge to create an all-in-one eCommerce platform that would bring together all the needed and demanded business features combined with an easy-to-use website builder. 3dcart also offers a white-label rebranding solution for resellers and is headquartered in Tamarac, FL, USA.

Building an online store with 3dcart vs. building an online store with Simvoly

3dcart: Powerful eCommerce Functionality.

Simvoly: Generic Website Builder with Few eCommerce Tools.

Simvoly is a relatively new website builder and has already made strides toward competing with other generic builders like Wix and Squarespace. It has good website building capabilities that can make it a solid competitor to those types of builders, and has some built-in eCommerce functionality. However, it's simply not great for eCommerce, as it has almost none of the features an online store needs to grow, and it also imposes limits on your store that require an expensive upgrade to remove.

Simvoly costs

Simvoly's built-in functionality is sorely lacking, with few tools beyond a shopping cart, products, and a CRM. Shipping, accounting, taxes, and marketing all require third-party tools, so you'll need to pay for additional services to have these features - and there are almost no integrations, so you'll need Zapier to connect them. Simvoly also imposes limits on every plan, including bandwidth limits and even limits on the number of customer accounts you can have on your store.

The truth is that, while Simvoly offers good website building capabilities, its eCommerce is rudimentary at best. You're much better off going with a dedicated eCommerce platform like 3dcart, which not only has hundreds of built-in features for everything that Simvoly lacks (and more), but also integrates with all popular software for customizing your tool set as you see fit. Plus, with 3dcart, you'll never face limits on customers, bandwidth, products, or the size of the website you can build.

3dcart vs. Simvoly feature comparison

Scalable, affordable, feature-rich software vs. limitations and lack of features and integrations

sad emojiPricing and Features

There's a lot about Simvoly that looks good on the surface, but it simply isn't the best value for your money. Every single plan is limited in some fashion, including bandwidth restrictions even on the highest tier, and the built-in feature count is extremely low. The Personal plan limits the number of pages you can create on your website, and you'll have to upgrade to the Growth plan to have unlimited customer accounts. There's no built-in solution for sales tax, shipping, or most of the other features you need for eCommerce, and the lack of integration further limits your store's capabilities. But 3dcart is packed with features including everything you need to build and grow an online business, plus you get unlimited bandwidth and customers no matter which plan you choose. There are more features, more power, and more potential with 3dcart.

sad emojiProduct Limits

Simvoly has product limits on its lower-tier plans, meaning you'll need to get their Growth plan for $79 a month to sell as many products as you need. If you're just starting out and can only afford the Personal plan ($18/month), you can only sell 5 products. But 3dcart makes it much easier to sell a larger catalog no matter the size of your business; you can sell unlimited products on our Startup plan for $19/month or even opt for our $9.99 Dropshipping plan, on which you can sell 1,000 products.

"I was disappointed with Simvoly. Building my site was really easy, but it didn't take long to realize there's a lot this platform can't do. My store was doing well thanks to word of mouth, so I quickly ran into the maximum number of customer accounts and had to upgrade my plan. Then I realized I had to use other software and Zapier for almost everything. Simvoly doesn't even have any shipping tools and I needed to get another app for that and connect it with Zapier. I did some investigating and realized I'd soon be paying over $1,000 a month for everything I needed! Switching to 3dcart was the right choice and I was amazed at how much is built in. It saved me a huge amount of money and there are no limits on website size or customers."

– Former Simvoly website owner

sad emojiIntegrations with Other Software

Running a successful online business requires a lot of tools, and regardless of any features built into a platform, many eCommerce website owners prefer to use third-party software to handle different aspects of their business. These can include accounting software like QuickBooks, shipping management tools like ShippingEasy, tax management software like Avalara, and more. These work best when fully integrated with your eCommerce software, but Simvoly is only integrated with a few third-party solutions, all of which are for mailing list management. For anything else, you'll need a Zapier account to transmit information between your apps, which doesn't provide the full feature set. However, 3dcart is integrated with hundreds of different types of software for all business purposes, making it simple (and cheaper) to use your favorite tools.

Free Simvoly Themes

Simvoly offers a good variety of themes, but most of them aren't intended for eCommerce. This is because Simvoly isn't purely focused on online stores, and most of its templates are meant for other types of websites. There are 26 eCommerce templates focused on a few industries (as well as a blank template for building from scratch) and all bearing a similar layout.

3dcart payments

3dcart is integrated with more payment providers than any other eCommerce platform, so you can run your business without limits. Payment types include credit cards, digital wallets, Bitcoin, customer financing, international payment providers, high-risk industries, and more.

Simvoly: Limited payment provider selection

Simvoly payments

Simvoly is only integrated with 12 payment providers, and while most are popular, this can severely limit your options. Popular digital wallets like Apple Pay, Amazon Pay, and Google Pay are completely absent, despite being considered essential these days. If customers can't use their favorite payment, they're likely to turn away.
