STEP 1: WHY US
Hi, I am Igor Soshkin co-founder of Shopping Cart Elite, I would like to share my experience with you, and tell why we would be a better technology partner than any of our competitors such as Big Commerce, Volusion, Shopify and the likes.
We started an ecommerce retail company back in 2001, we started it just like you are doing now. In the first year, we made $100,000, the second $250,000, and by the fourth year we had generated over $4M.
We did this because we were not limited to startup technology. We knew exactly what we needed, so we built it, we used it, and we made money with it.
When we sold that company we took our software, our ecommerce knowledge and ideas and built what is now known as Shopping Cart Elite.
So to get the record straight, out of all of our competitors we are actually the only ones that operated and grew a real ecommerce business that actually generated REAL profits and employed over 50 staff members. There are no CEOs of other Shopping Carts that have this exclusive experience.
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU STAY AWAY FROM STARTUP TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES THAT TARGET BUSINESSES THAT ARE JUST STARTING OUT. A GOOD EXAMPLE IS BIGCOMMERCE, SHOPIFY, VOLUSION, GODADDY, etc.
Why? Because you can’t succeed with Startup technology. Of course, there is always luck, and the right place at the right time, therefore, there are hundreds of companies who have succeeded on those startup platforms, but these hundreds of successful companies are a handful out of tens of thousands of companies that failed.
Hope is not a business strategy.
We posted a few stories of other business owners and their experience with startup technology shopping carts. You can read it, and you can see why it is not a wise choice.
You can see them below:
HERE ARE A FEW ARTICLES WE WROTE ABOUT STARTUP VS. SMALL BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY
-GOOD ARTIST COPY, GREAT ARTISTS STEAL
-COMMODITY SHOPPING CARTS VS. SCE
-BIG COMMERCE VS. SHOPPING CART ELITE
-FULL CASE STUDY
Startup Software Shopping carts will keep your business sustained at break-even or slightly profitable levels because when you grow your business, you're hiring more people, you're spending more money on expenses, you're not automating anything because your shopping cart is not designed for that, you're doing a lot of manual work. Startup Software Shopping Carts are not designed around automation, so instead of getting technology to automate tasks, you will be hiring people to do those tasks manually and it will quickly get out of control.
Startup technology software fails to automate, systemize and streamline your marketing and operations. You will need a person to compile inventory daily and merge it (3 hours/day), manually ship it (1 hour/day), manually process orders (1 hour/day), manually audit data entry (full time), manually submit to shopping channels (4 hours/day), etc. and then hire SEO companies and SEO gurus to do basic tasks that should have come with your website in the first place. Some businesses have 10-20 staff members on the team doing a one person job.
If you compare software even at $1,000 per month versus supporting 20 staff members at $20,000 per year payroll, then you will quickly see the value of having the right Shopping Cart in place from the beginning.
We got our packages to include all the tools we believe you will need to grow without paying for any additional software, we got our packages to be priced CHEAPER than any of our competitors considering all the apps that you will get with Shopping Cart Elite, that you otherwise will NOT get with our competitors such as Marketplace management, Inventory, CRM system, SEO tools, TEA Software for Analytics, Easy Data Feed automation, etc. All of these are included in Shopping Cart Elite, and more.
If you were to take Shopping Cart Elite and all the tools that it comes with and compare it to say Big Commerce and all the BigCommerce add-on apps that you will need to match Shopping Cart Elite tools, you will be paying 10 times the price.
We have clients who generate $4M per year, $10M per year, $20M per year on Shopping Cart Elite so we can assure you that you will NEVER outgrow Shopping Cart Elite, because we can handle any size business, even the Billion Dollar Fortune Retailers.

Customers who are looking at the price and investment of Shopping Cart Elite in comparison to a cheaper option are looking through the wrong end of the telescope. Instead of trying to shave off the cost of their monthly fee as well as the initial setup, they should concentrate on getting more sales results from actually using Shopping Cart Elite. That is where the leverage is, I don’t know of one company that got rich by underpaying for software that drives the core of their business. Pay peanuts and you get vaporware software with monkeys on customer support.Igor Soshkin
