Hey guys,

I currently have a dilemma because a client of mine wants me to switch his website ( from wordpress to opencart. At the moment his site doesn't actually sell anything but he is going to start selling.

Not quite sure on what the advantages are with using opencart

Not sure which kind of information you want to get.
Seems to me more to promote a site offering illegal content.
And if you - or your client - want to open a webshop, OpenCart is the right thing for it.

Looking at "WooCommerce to OpenCart" angle, I'd say it's a good decision. Regardless of the purpose you got there, OpenCart is the way to go, especially when comparing to WooCommerce. OpenCart is built for eCommerce, it has built-in tools for ecommerce management. Most of all, it's fast to setup and performs well.

I tried Magento, damn it's so slow and you need extra powered VPS just to run a demo instance. OpenCart is fast, whether on localhost LAMP or Shared Hosting.

I tried WooCommerce too, and I feel like I'm posting a blog post while stitching a product details to it. I hated that.

OpenCart is the way to go - at least for me.

I would also add Opencart is the way to go. I've used WP and Woo and IMO Woo is ok if your site or blog also happens to sell a few items. For dedicated selling and marketing Opencart is my first choice.

I have also used Magento and wouldn't ever go back there. Life's too short. Lol. :)

I also used WooCommerce for some time and it's really hard to get used to its interface. Adding products isn't quick nor intuitive. Plus not too many customization options. So if you would like to have fast and clean shop then OpenCart is surely a better solution.
