Thanksgiving is not even a month away and businesses are planning to leverage the golden opportunity this festive season is going to offer them, especially the Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
If you are striving to keep your online business up and running for a long-term, you will need to offer solutions to clients with diverse requirements. By the way, when it comes to discussing terms with your clients, your opinions and suggestions will undoubtedly matter to them.
As they will understand that after having years of experience in running a Drupal website development company in USA for quite a few years, you are well updated with prevailing technology.
As the client hands you over their recommendations, you can advance further with the knowledge of their dream project’s feature-list, budget, and potential customers. You might as well need to keep the list of all the available platforms ready to manifest to your clients.
Here’s a list of top eCommerce store building platforms available with a brief on the features they have to offer:
1. Magento Open Source
Magento is an open source eCommerce store building platform which you can use freely for personal and commercial projects. In the beginning, it presents you with a basic store that you can configure. It offers you more flexibility than you get with other hosted and paid platforms.
However, since it has been developed in PHP, you might need a basic understanding of the programming language if you are planning to do the setup work all by yourself. By the way, the Magento community is full of developers with several paid and free plugins and themes if you are not compatible with playing around with code.
Being a free development platform, Magento does not offer to host. That means you will need to buy it yourself as well as the security and payment integration of your store.
No one knew that it will soon power half a million eCommerce stores to help them earn a revenue of $40 billion when the Shopify first made it presented to the online world. The revenue of Shopify itself is $151 million. Shopify allows you to set up your eCommerce website without many efforts while offering you hosting options from $9 (Lite) to $299 (advanced).
You can go ahead and choose one either from preset tools or can create your own custom one. Shopify enables you to sell your goods on a variety of social media platforms while having a buy button on your posts. For some good eCommerce store ideas, you can check the ‘examples’ of already built stores in Shopify.
Another big name in eCommerce industry is BigCommerce. If you haven’t heard about it yet, let us uncover a few advantages it offers to businesses and general users. The online store builder platform boasts that 28% growth rate was experienced on an average by their merchants.
BigCommerce presents you with several responsive templates that can be fully customized according to your requirements. You can even test your website before you finally launch it. The platform makes sure to strengthen your store’s security to make it PCI compliant.
If you are not satisfied enough with your current online marketplace platform, BigCommerce even let you migrate your entire store to it while providing you expert technical help.
OpenCart is a free open source platform to set your store up and bring it in front of everyone while availing all the high-scale eCommerce store management features that come with it. The best thing I like about it that it lets you try out a demo store without creating an account or entering your payment details.
Once you check out the demos, you will find both the front end and back end of your website powered with pretty solid features including, banner ads, partner list, featured items, my account, wish list, shopping cart, and checkout buttons.
On the other hand, the admin panel of your store will welcome you with a dashboard containing the information about total orders, sales, customers, and people online. Moreover, it will show you where are most of your customers are coming from and how much sales you have closed at any given time of the day.
These platforms have made design, development, and setup of new eCommerce application easy. And if your Drupal website development service in USA is going to thrive in the overly competitive market of today, your team has to be well equipped with the knowledge of how to work with these, especially Shopify, Magento, and BigCommerce.
