Choosing the right shopping cart is not a decision to be made lightly. There are a lot of them out there and they don’t all support the same tools and functions, so you need to think about your customers’ needs and choose a shopping cart that supports the features necessary for your business. To help this process along, we’re offering our in-depth reviews of Payza-supported shopping carts.
WHMCS Review (WHMCS.com)
We began our series of shopping-cart reviews with Magento, a powerful, flexible and cost-effective e-commerce platform. The one major downside of Magento is that it’s not known for being user-friendly, and can be very challenging to use for small and mid-sized merchants who lack developer skills of their own.
So for merchants looking for a simple, turnkey billing solution, WHMCS is an excellent choice, always close to the top of the list of recommendations and known industry-wide for its excellent customer service. Though WHMCS does not develop its own shopping cart templates, they provide a robust billing platform and offer round-the-clock customer support for each and every one of their users.
Originally launched in 2005, WHMCS built its business by providing a complete end-to-end solution to web hosts and internet service providers, automating the delivery of web hosting, domain name registration and associated digital services through a single centralized platform. WHMCS now powers many of the world’s leading web hosting companies and can be integrated with any type of business that requires online billing.
How it Works
WHMCS does not provide its own shopping cart templates – they solely handle the billing side of things for you. Payza provides the shopping cart module to be integrated with your existing e-commerce website and processes all the payments collected by WHMCS.
This means that when one of your clients places an order through your Payza-integrated shopping cart, WHMCS sends them a high quality, professional-looking bill. This invoice is sent in HTML and PDF format by email to the client, so they don’t even need to visit your site to view or pay their bill. The invoices themselves are fully customizable.
One of the key advantages of WHMCS is that they will even follow up with payment due date reminders and seek out outstanding payees – meaning that if you have any unpaid bills, WHMCS will chase after your delinquent clients for you to make sure the invoice gets paid in full.
Though WHMCS is not free, it is one of the cheapest billing solutions on the market. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial, after which you can use WHMCS for all your billing purposed for somewhere between $15 and $19 per month. Compared to some other providers who charge anywhere between $500 and $5000 per month, WHMCS is a steal.
WHMCS is very popular with web hosts and developers because they are both user-friendly and very versatile for those with developer skills. WHMCS is deeply committed to providing up-to-date and reliable integration with the latest web hosting technologies and with all the leading services & providers web hosts use, combined with high-quality service and support available around the clock.
