Choosing the Right e-Commerce Solution
Choosing the right e-commerce solution is important for your online business. We’ve seen how difficult and time consuming a job is to manage an online store when business owners select the e-commerce solution that isn’t ideal for their situation.
At Forge Online we recommend our e-commerce solution depending on the client’s requirement and their budget, but most importantly, there business structure.
Generally, Magento and Woocommerce are our preferred e-commerce shopfronts.
We use the Magento Community Edition for our e-commerce stores. It’s the ideal solution for almost all advanced business structures.
Magento is a robust and secure, offers multi-store support, and as a key factor behind our recommendation, it’s an open source platform, meaning our clients own their entire site, code and installation.
In 2013, 26% of all the web sites in the world were developed using Magento and It’s kept growing as a globally trusted platform from there.
WooCommerce is a WordPress add-on to provide shopping cart functionality
WooComerce functions better for small scale online stores of about a thousand products or less. At forge we use WooCommerce for stores that require easy and simple store management functions in an intuitive and hassle-free back-end system.
The bonus of dealing with Forge Online is that our knowledge is not limited to Magento and WooCommerce. Our developers have also engaged on other e-commerce solutions such as Prestashop, Lemonstand, ZenCart and Shopify.
Working with a range of e-commerce solutions give us the upper hand when it comes to recommending the ideal e-commerce solution for our clients.
