30 Days Of E-Commerce Testing - Day Seven!

Day 7

Name five examples of an commerce platform  (e.g. Shopify)

OK, here we go. I’m relying heavily on MerchantMaverick as my source of information.
This is a list of ecommerce platforms, and some notable features / highlights.

Magento


Looks like there is a free / open source version. This means it requires some PHP skills to implement, so it’s not for everyone.
Seems to have a pretty big feature set though.

Volusion

Has some pretty interesting pricing structures. You could end up paying for bandwidth!
Cloud based.
Limited feature set.
Some pretty concerning customer reviews.

Shopify

Cloud based.
Offer good range of themes.
Easy to use, but limited feature set.

WooCommerce


Free!
Integrates nicely with Wordpress.
Requires more technical skill than others.

3dCart


Cloud based.
Competitively priced, but limited tech support.
Good set of integrations and add-ons.

 

 

So there it is!

If I was to set up an e-commerce site tomorrow, based on my limited knowledge I’d probably go with Shopify, or with WooCommerce if I was using Wordpress.

But I have other things to do tomorrow.

Oh, and please excuse the formatting of this post. I'm finding Squarespace increasingly frustrating to use.
