Greetings,

I've been an OpenCart user for many years, but I'm debating switching to something like shopify or bigcommerce. I was wondering if some users could help me think out, or point out ways that I could stay here economically and still get the functionality I need.

First of All: Thank you to all the developers and community for creating this great free source that has helped build my business!

I'm on Version 2.3.0.2

1. Will upgrading to 3.0 give me any substantial add on functionality?

2. True Option Pricing. I'd like to move away from the "+1.50" type option pricing that the base opencart uses.

3. Multiple Option Stock Tracking. With base opencart it is extremely difficult to put real stock values in for products that have multiple options.

4. Electronic Gift Cards. I need a nice robust GiftCard system.

1. Nope. OpenCart 3 is actually 2.4 with TWIG instead of TPL and Marketplace.

For 2, 3, 4 you will have to install corresponding extensions.

Thanks for the reply krotek. Any suggestions on good mods to get these features?

Also, it would be nice to have an ability to see when options are out of stock.

I personally don't have such extensions, but you can simply search the Marketplace by keywords and find the right mod.

I think you are being a bit harsh on opencart developers while saying that :)
In my view it is always advisable to be on the latest version.
However, I know there have been some avoidable changes made which have complicated the matters a bit.
