A lot more goes into building a successful e-commerce business than you might think.
Exactly and the core focal point (aside from what your are selling) is a website that draws customers in. Alex
Yeah, i agree with you that there are number of advantages of eCommerce but the admin has to face huge competition as well.
I think the admins should delete this user - could even be a bot. Paul
Haha no sir. I am not a bot i am real human. Actually i was saying that in eCommerce every admin of store have to face a lot of competition because i am planning to create a C 2 C eCommerce store.
Good to know.
Have you looked at multimerch.com?
Thank you for this suggestion.
Open source platforms would always be my recommendation rather than solutions such as Shopify. Though they are great for start-up businesses who want something easy to set up, they don't lend well to complex scalability.
Wordpress/Woocommerce is a personal preference.
I can also recommend TSP host as UK hosting company. Not without its issues (especially their cheap cloud hosting) but the VPS servers are reliable. Having the live chat instant support is really important, which makes them my choice.
Hope that helps, Emily
Have we mentioned the delightful WooCommerce - better than the hosted solutions, professional, easily customised and runs on WordPress. Great out of the box and plenty of developers on hand to help you on your way.
Nice to read only, but when we have to choose we always in double mind or confused. So as we see current market trends, Magento won the race. Because of its newest version.
I constantly used OpenCart for all my web shops but for current one I keep in my mind I will try WooCommerce/Wordpress, I want to see how it works in comparison with some real live example. I have heard many good things about it, I do not expect much, but will use that still.
There are so many these days, reading through this brought back memories!
i think Woocommerce should be a way to go, i have used Magento and PrestaShop as a normal user, and i also have done some coding for PrestaShop , but there are too many complications working with these platforms for normal user, not easy to work with, need tech knowledge, lots of issues comming frequently. Woo is easy to use and understand.
Woocommerce is my favourite as it is quick and easy to use.
I'm currently going through this process. I've found that the likes of Shopify etc are great for low involvement products and businesses e.g clothes but if your product is more complex and your business operates across multiple sites/sells abroad etc the best solution is Magento.
Good points, I guess it's the requirement of the business that actually defines its suitability to the ecommerce solution.
Yes totally agree with you, and we also have to make it sure for e commerce platform that whether our team can use it or not. We also have to make it sure first.
Open-Source ecommerce platforms such as WooCommerce and OpenCart offer a large variety of themes and plugins, not to mention large community based support.
Avoid website builder 'online shops' such as those from Wix or GoDaddy as they are very restrictive in terms of options and in particular payment platforms. Plus, if you decide down the line you have outgrown it you'd need to start from scratch elsewhere...
Magento is also very expensive to maintain. Alex
