Top 5 eCommerce Platforms to Launch an eCommerce Store Easily


70% work is completed simply by buying a readymade website theme that is built on top of any of the best ecommerce platforms. In this era of technological innovations, starting an ecommerce venture has become affordable at both retail and individual level, which was not the case in the 1990s or 2010s. While exercising over other factors is possible before or after the website is published, software genre certainly cannot be changed. That has to be pre-determined in the very first. So, in this article, I am presenting pros and cons of top 5 ecommerce platforms. Your choice can be anything depending on features requirement and budget allocation. From my part, I assure a fair representation of the most popular ecommerce platforms that is void of one-sidedness. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

  • The frustration of Too Many Uncertain Business
  • However, launching an ecommerce store cannot be
    considered business success.
  • Just before you start, think over how would you
    manage/make in this cutthroat competition?
  • With
  • Reasonable price?
  • Extraordinary marketing efforts?
  • In-house cost deduction?
  • State-of-the-art automated ecommerce setup?
  • still..many other things.
  • Well, I dont deny the importance of any of above
  • While exercising over other factors is possible
    before or after the website is published,
    software genre certainly cannot be changed. That
    has to be pre-determined in the very first.
Speaking Strongly On Wrong Recommendations It is
understandable that merchants but cannot
recommend products of cross-vendors to cut down
own survival. Yet, there exists a lot of
ecommerce SEO services agencies, bloggers who
publish text and favor for specific ecommerce
product to hike sales of a partner. Therefore I
have re-worked on an article that is already
published tens of times to offer a neutral
walkway. Ecommerce platforms comparison makes
sense, I believe 1000s of individuals and
business will benefit from this study.
Selecting an Ecommerce solution without
Popularity Measure means Business
Speculation Ecommerce website development is
complicated because although an individual may
have lucrative ideas, turning them into the real
world, beautiful experiences in machine/digital
format require specific coding expertise
  • For example, a Java developer may not be replaced
    with WordPress consultant and vice-versa.
  • Those who build internet presence with a widely
    used genre of ecommerce get a competitive
    advantage due to the availability of programmers
    and easy on pocket labor charges.
  • Drilling even down, if you are in need of
    ecommerce solutions for small business, as is the
    general scenario, you have to actively involved
    in the understanding architecture of particular
    framework, and ask questions like
  • In what programming language an ecommerce
    framework is written?
  • What are hourly rates for that type of
  • How much scalable is it, for 1 office, 5 offices
    or can it manage 15 centers worldwide?
  • Monthly pay or only customization fees?
  • Plugins vantage is available for this ecommerce
  • By default features
  • etc.
  • Although you dont have to be a coder, looking
    into itemization(break-up of components) is
    recommended to get a tighter grip on your
  • There are much more factors to cover that
    altogether make an ecommerce solution customer
    friendly, such as
  • Printing friendly
  • Glossary/Tooltip (small text chunk appearing on
    Mouse Hover in a website)
  • Customer Quotes
  • eBay Order Import Integration
  • Open or Closed Source Codebase
  • etc.
  • Remarkable Pros Cons of Magento
  • Good Parts
  • Community version Is free and has almost 70 of
    total features
  • Greater than 9,000 plugins published until date,
    quite less possibility that some feature cant be
    brought by an installation of a plugin
  • Open Source
  • No Monthly Subscription Fees
  • Scalable
  • Bad Parts
  • The price tag to unlock advanced features is
    high, a business owner has to spend as much as
    USD 20,000 for Magento Enterprise Edition
  • Complicated to setup and customize, expert
    programmers have to be hired to manage Magento, a
    business owner cant just tailor Magento store
    with DIY
  • Remarkable Pros Cons of Shopify
  • Good Parts
  • Start selling on Facebook by integrating Shopify
    website just for 9
  • Comes pre-built with mobile-friendly features,
    includes a mobile app for an added amount
  • Streamlined Checkout process, lower shopping
    cart abandonment rate
  • A plethora of 3rd party apps, plugins, you may
    not need to create anything from scratch
  • Well established Shopify Community to solve
    problems, commercial support available 247 from
    the company
  • Bad Parts
  • All transactions are met with slightly added fee
    reserved for Shopify, even on top of monthly
    subscription charges
  • It is difficult to tailor or customize Shopify
    website should add-ons dont nurture the desired
    feature. You have to hire the very specific type
    of developer having hands-on liquid programming
  • Extensions arent economic rate, Shopify
    marketplace is almost void of free plugins
  • Remarkable Pros Cons of BigCommerce
  • Good Parts
  • Most BigCommerce themes, whether free or paid to
    deliver consistent user experiences across
    devices and screen sizes, i.e. responsive
  • Multitude of enterprise features are available
    with lesser than premium pricing plans, like tax,
    analytics, gift coupons and more
  • Quick ecommerce store integration with eBay,
    Google Shopping Facebook
  • Easy, wizard-based setup, also, articulate
    videos, demos served by first source company
  • Bad Parts
  • Limited free stuff and themes to give your store
    a unique identity
  • Doesnt support integration with Amazon right
    now, multi-vendor online store isnt possible on
    BigCommerce website
  • Remarkable Pros Cons of nopCommerce
  • Good Parts
  • It is a polished, domain driven, MVC ecommerce
    framework. Its architecture is just the best, no
  • It is easy to implement database design and
    application design to build an ecommerce website
    by using nopCommerce components. Alike open
    source development, all the tools, IDEs etc. are
    predetermined, standard, so less uncertainty and
    use of 3rd party
  • Ridiculously cost-effective, all features
    unlocked, nothing like community or enterprise
    edition, USD 100 for monthly support
  • More than 30,950 websites using it, quick start
    within 1 week
  • Bad Parts
  • Although nopCommerce is free, its ingredients
    arent, i.e. and SQL server is Microsoft
    owned proprietary software. Therefore it is
    likely to have free stuff like themes etc.
  • A learning curve is steep, you may consider it a
    bit deviated from the main route i.e. generic PHP
    developers, so sourcing of technical experts is
    not effortless unless you are willing to hire
    online and remote basis
  • Remarkable Pros Cons of WooCommerce
  • Good Parts
  • Number 1 Ecommerce amongst free products, 30 of
    all ecommerce websites use WooCommerce
  • The most common or default ecommerce genre to
  • Thousands of customizers worldwide, cheap labor
  • Very easy user interfaces, just anyone can
    DIY(Do It Yourself)
  • Unlimited Plugins, including free and premium
  • Industrywise readymade themes available
  • Bad Parts
  • It is not very scalable
  • It lacks enterprise features like Business
  • Slow on its own rather on part of coding, Google
    is currently(2018) revamping its structure that
    will increase the speed of 1000s of sites after
    upgrading to newer to version.
  • So far, I have completed top 5 ecommerce platform
    comparison as per promise of the article.
  • However, I know you have questions for why not
    few other popular names? The candidates list
    comprises of
  • Prestashop
  • Volusion
  • Open Cart
  • OS Commerce
  • Zen Cart
  • Drupal Commerce
  • Joomla! / Virtue Mart
  • Above 7 ecommerce frameworks are heard names,
    powering 100s of sites at the moment,
    unfortunately not in top 5 for which I am sure.
