Articles › Which is the best eCommerce solution ?

With hundreds of e-commerce solutions now available many developers face a crossroads in which platform to use and its not a easy task.

A couple of important factors that have to be taken into consideration are.

  • Is the software easy to use for the client as they will be adding the products.
  • How easy is the shop to modify and upgrade.
  • Is the shop accepting credit cards and is it compatible with the merchant.
  • Is there enough server memory to handle the bandwidth.
  • Is the software secure and have a good reputation for being stable.

At some stage a decision has to be made unless the shop is being custom built which can have its positive and negative factors something we may write about later this year.
