Ecommerce websites are becoming more and more popular. If you are thinking about getting into ecommerce then please ensure you pick the right website development company to help you through the maze of choices and many decisions you will need to make. Only experience counts when it comes to running a successful ecommerce website.
As website designers we know that the way the ecommerce website looks is every bit as important as what is does for the user. So our in house designers will create the styling aimed right at the pocket of your customer. Enticing them to part with their hard earned money in your store.
The software you choose to work with will depend on a few items:
- Your budget
- Your knowledge or experience of ecommerce software
- How many products you have and how to present them effectively
- How you intend to fulfil the orders you receive
- And most importantly your target audience
At Clickingmad we have been advising clients on the types of ecommerce software available to them since 2000. We have seen many systems become unpopular because of the way they work – or don’t work in some cases!
We are skilled in the following platforms:
Our opinion on Magento
Magento is a high level ecommerce system that is used by some very big names online. Nike, Olympus, Breville and Gant are just a few of the companies that use this system to sell their products. We have built Magento solutions for retail websites and business to business. It really is a very flexible and powerful ecommerce system. But, you do need good technical skills to make it sing and dance, so always use a company experienced in website development and website design to develop it.
Our opinion on OpenCart
OpenCart is a relative newbie to the stable of Open Source. It is attracting a lot of attention due to its simplicity of operation, yet powerful core software. Although simpler than Magento, you still need good technical skills to create the website properly.
Open source solutions
You will note that we are firmly in the Open Source camp for ecommerce website development. Both Magento and OpenCart are open source software solutions. This means that you are not tied to a particular vendor going forward.
It is no accident that we use open source as who wants to pay license fees every year for proprietary software? The quality of open source ecommerce software has improved tremendously in recent years and now rivals any "paid for" system.
Our trained staff can provide you with professional advice on choosing the best ecommerce software for your business. Please give us a call to discuss your needs - in confidence.
