A web shop can be built in many ways. However, the fastest road is to use an e-commerce platform. We work with a few of them, so let’s have a look what would suit your business.
A web shop should be easy to manage
Product ranges change, shipping methods need to be customized, communication with the customer should be quick and user friendly – all this and more is what separates a good E-commerce platform from the rest.
Which one to choose?
Magento is the big boy here. As far as e-commerce goes, you can achieve anything in Magento. The customization options are endless. The downside is that it takes more time to configure.
WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress. It has become quite feature rich in recent years and the advantage is that you also get a standard WordPress website in the process.
Shopify is extremely popular, as it is ready to be used out-of-the-box and doesn’t require much to be setup. But just as anything else, sometimes you need to customize it with the help of developers.
PrestaShop is one of the many other medium sized players. It is open-source and offers lots of features, however it is far less popular than the other three.
