Why should I use a self-hosted shopping cart such as Site Store Pro instead of a hosted cart solution such as Shopify?

With Site Store Pro, you have complete control of your website design, e-commerce data and your costs.

You own your data, can access it directly and do anything you want with it.

You are not restricted by a hosted cart provider on how you operate your online business, what you sell and where you sell.

You can host your website and the shopping cart whenever you want, sell unlimited items and can customize it any way that you require.

You can switch hosts / servers anytime, add new features and install the shopping cart on multiple websites for the same one-time fee.

If your store has complex or proprietary feature requirements, the cart can be easily customized which is difficult or impossible on hosted cart solutions.
