Which eCommerce plugin is the better alternative for my blog? With more and more competing premium WordPress plugins it gets harder and harder to answer that question. This article takes a look at two popular eCommerce plugins: It compares MarketPress with Cart66 Cloud in order to help you with your decision in choosing one.
There are several other alternatives to MarketPress and Cart66 Cloud on the market which I have compared in separate articles. Go to my main WordPress eCommerce Plugins comparison to start your search.
Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you. Because such a verdict would depend on too many variables, including your server setup and personal preference, I have decided to stick to the hard facts for this feature comparison between MarketPress and Cart66 Cloud.
MarketPress And Cart66 Cloud Feature Comparison
In my comparison I track 50 different features for all the WordPress e-commerce plugins. In MarketPress you can find 19 out of 50 of those features. Cart66 Cloud on the other hand offers 21 out of the 50 features in total.

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: MarketPress as well as Cart66 Cloud both provide a unique interface from which you will build an awesome online store. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.
MarketPress vs Cart66 Cloud Price Comparison
WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of MarketPress and Cart66 Cloud.
To find the cheaper eCommerce plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for MarketPress or Cart66 Cloud (as well as other alternatives).
|Minimum (1 Site)||0.00 USD||360.00 USD|
|Maximum (1 Site)||228.00 USD||360.00 USD|
|Minimum (10 Sites)||0.00 USD||3600.00 USD|
|Maximum (10 Sites)||228.00 USD||3600.00 USD|
Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.
Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.
