End in a tie!

The only other deciding factors that I think that you should know about these 2 eCommerce platforms is that both of them can seem a little clunky in the admin panel at first. Note for theme designers: Opencart’s file structure is completely whack-a-doodle but after awhile you can figure it out. Opencart also has more free and affordable extensions.
