Ecommerce & M-commerce
Our years of experience allows us to guide you successfully to the correct platform to maximise your sales with the least amount of complications. The eCommerce platform market isn’t a small one, there are hundreds of options available – some might offer a simple feel, whilst some might feel extremely cluttered, but provide cheaper rates and prices. The following are some good questions to ask yourself whilst looking around
Digital or Physical products
What is it that you’re ecommerce store selling? Digital or physical goods? It makes all the difference when thinking about shipping costs, etc,. Look for platforms that suit your product needs.
PayPal (the most easy and popular payment processor) is the base standard for every platform. It can be a little clunky feeling, it you want a slick checkout process you could look at Stripe or Braintree. We can even allow your customers to simply set up easy to manage direct debits via GoCardless.
There are many clearing services all having strengths and weaknesses. Your ecommerce payment gateway choice should fit your business like a glove.
Self-Hosted or Hosted Ecommerce
If you wish to have a killer design to your store, look for platforms that will enable you to have a self-hosted version. Most eCommerce platforms provide the ability to modify your store within a live environment but some are restrictive. Self hosting also allows you to modify the platform to fit your business processes. Shopify for example, was perfectly if you wish to sell in the way they allow, if you want a break or new process in the sale then it might not be the platform for you.
