Ecommerce Design & Development
Ecommerce is booming and online sales are still growing globally. For companies with a large variety of products custom-build e-commerce websites can present with some hefty start-up costs. Using a platform such as Magento, provides large savings in both the construction and also maintenance of an online shopping platform.
The Magento Content Management System (CMS) is specifically developed for ecommerce businesses combining the web interface with logistics, accounting and distribution. It can be integrated with many popular payment systems as well as third party applications that add functionality.
Magento is also available as an open-source platform, which means that the software installation is free. In the e-commerce world, Magento is long established and it is well supported by many developers globally. This means that you do not have to worry about constantly paying for the development of upgrades or security fixes.
Building a bespoke online retail platform can be a barrier to many business and whilst Magento is not the cheapest platform, it does offer superior search engine performance which is critical for online business success. Systems such as Wix, Moonfruit, Squarespace or Shopify are very easy to use but might prove very challenging if you count on Google visitors bringing you sales. So when starting up, think of value for money and make your minimum investment in a proven professional platform that is flexible enough for your needs. Out of the box solutions will only carry you for a few months before you are forced to make a considerable investment.
Why choose Magento:
- Free ‘community version’
- Can handle thousands of products
- Integrates with third-party systems
- Established and well supported
- A leading platform for e-commerce
- Search Engine Friendly as opposed to Moonfruit and Wix
