Looking For An Alternative To Solid Commerce?
Due to the proprietary nature of their pricing details, we aren’t able to publish a comparison chart with side-by-side pricing. However, we did compare their functionality to ours below.
Solid Commerce offers more than 30 integrations for online retailers, but it isn’t clear if they are available at each price tier or if you have to pay extra per channel. They don’t list their pricing tiers other than the starting price which is $399 a month. Ecomdash offers unlimited sales channels, users, and more starting as low as $60 a month.
Differences in Inventory Systems
Multiwarehousing, bundling, inventory movement, and more are all listed on the Solid Commerce site. Again, it is hard to tell what is included at the $399 price point, but they seem to offer many of the same features as ecomdash. Ecomdash offers all of the same features listed on their inventory management page for a fraction of the cost.
Shipping & Fulfillment
Users can view all sales orders in the Solid Commerce platform, along with printing pick lists and packing slips. You can also use their Solidship software to print shipping labels and set automated rules, along with other various features. It doesn’t state whether this shipping software is an added cost or not. Similar to ecomdash, they offer dropshipping and third-party fulfillment management, along with FTP connections for supplier fees.
Solid Commerce doesn’t mention any purchasing features in their product tour. We pride ourselves on being an end-to-end inventory solution. You can manage restocking to fulfilling your products. In ecomdash, you can create purchase orders to buy more products, generate work orders, and assign those orders to specific employees. All these features and more are included at every tier.
Manage Product Listings
You have the ability to list your items to new marketplaces with Solid Commerce. They mention the ability to manage various product details and pricing options. Sellers can list to the popular marketplaces and webstores, but there isn’t a definitive list of who they list to. With ecomdash, you can list your products to any of our integrated channels, all at the same price listed on our pricing page. We don’t charge extra for listing new products.
Reporting and Extra Features
Solid Commerce mentions a reporting dashboard with access to your best and worst products, financial reports, and various other helpful reports. They also offer accounting with QuickBooks. We offer over 40+ sales reports that you can access at any time. These reports help you make decisions on purchasing new products, sales channel performance, financial and tax assistance, and more. We also sync your sales orders and purchase orders to QuickBooks.
