Choosing The Right eCommerce Platform
Once you have decided to start selling online the next task is to select an eCommerce platform that will fit your needs and budget. Here are some viewpoints to get you started.
There are many eCommerce tools available, including stand-alone and hosted ones like X-Cart; and specific ones designed for Content Management Systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, with some of the more popular ones being Magento, WooCommerce and Shopify.
The right one for you will take some research, and our earlier post will help you to ask the right questions. It has been our experience that the ones with the easiest product management are the best ones to choose. But also make sure that the one you select will support the shipping and payment methods you want to provide to your customers.
We have done some initial research into selecting an eCommerce software package and are pleased to share links to some sites that discuss the subject. They will open in a new tab or window, and give you several different viewpoints to help you make an informed decision.
