osCommerce vs Yahoo Site Builder vs Volusion vs BigCommerce vs Zen Cart vs Shopify vs Magento vs PrestaShop vs Jimdo vs Ultimate Web Builder
Quick Points:
osCommerce / ZenCart - Not much features, and requires programmer for customization
Yahoo Store Builder / Shopify - Lacking the features, not the price. Pay more than you have to per month, and per transaction.
Volusion / BigCommerce - Big price, without all the big features.
Magento - Very complicated, hard to use and customize - better know coding or hire experienced web developer - very expensive and all e-commerce features not built-in, software has errors/bugs
PrestaShop - Open source software (free), but can end up costing a lot because of add-ons you need to buy, or hiring a web developer to setup your online store
Jimdo - Pay for add-ons add up, limited templates and functionalities

Reviews Comparing UltimateWB to Other Website Builders

The software is working great, I am very happy with it. I already like it more than Dreamweaver and it totally blows Weebly out of the water.
 

Tony C. | Social Networking Website

The software is really nice. It's way more convenient than Dreamweaver for making a full site. It also makes it really easy for slideshows. It's a lot easier to manage things.
 

Burlingame Senior Home | Company Website

I got used to using XSite Pro but can see that your software is in a different league with many more features!

 

Dave B. | Business Websites

I have never written a review or provided a testimonial for many reasons. Maybe the main reason is because I just don’t feel passionate about a company or product either positively or negatively. Most stuff is just meh…neutral.

Ultimatewb on the other hand is a fantastic company. The product and service is exceptional. Their service is attentive, prompt, caring and considerate, and I feel as if I am part of their family. The product is very comprehensive, flexible (multiple possibilities), fluid, and fresh (offers many things other companies don't). Even still, they add features without fees and help you utilize it (If you can dream it, you can find a way to do it on their website. And if you can’t figure it out, they will help or add that feature.). There is no nickeling and diming, and stuffing product down your throat and two faced service like a company that loves to advertise at Superbowls.

Most importantly, when I represent my product/ service on a website out there, and it carries the Powered by Ultimatewb, I have to be certain that Ultimatewb represents my company as well. Ultimatewb reflects the responsibility, compassion, connectivity, humanity, service and integrity that I hope to see in my company.

 

Pranav J. | Social Networking Website

In some years now dealing with developers, we have found that your responses are very prompt and agreeable and is so far the best relationship we experienced in terms of support.
