How to Choose the Best eCommerce Platform
Choosing the right platform for your new online store is just as important as creating a professional responsive design. There are many different options available to business owners ready to sell online today and navigating the pros and cons of each eCommerce store software can leave many people overwhelmed. It is important to have this conversion early on in the website design project to ensure you have the best information available to make an educated decision for your business. Professional web designers and developers will have the most current knowledge and be able to help weigh the advantages or limitations within each platform to help kickstart your eCommerce design.
The two most popular systems for creating e commerce websites are Shopify and WooCommerce. Our Toronto web design company focuses primarily on open source website development which means our eCommerce website designs are built primarily on WordPress. We are however quite knowledgeable when it comes to the Shopify platform and have even recommended some new leads start their online store on the Shopify environment as it is generally faster and more budget-friendly to get started without the help of a professional website design agency.
Where our website design team excels is in custom eCommerce site design that is hand-crafted on WordPress using WooCommerce to configure and control the online store. This approach allows our web designers complete control over the user interface design for everything from the home page to product pages. As WooCommerce is an open-source application we are able to weave virtually any customization into the eCommerce web design process to offer our client’s business a fully branded and tailored eCommerce store.
