How to Start Your E-commerce Venture
There are now many options available to retailers looking to set up an e-commerce store, which can be a little daunting if you’ve never had experience in e-commerce before.
The first option is to use an “off-the-shelf” e-commerce package such as WooCommerce, Shopify or Magento. These open-source packages offer a very reasonably priced way to set up an e-commerce store and include all the standard e-commerce features that the public has come to expect. This includes secure checkout with PayPal, search function, featured products, discount codes, customer login and many more.
If your needs are a little more bespoke, then it may be worth looking into having a bespoke system developed. Whilst this will almost certainly cost more, it does offer a higher level of control over the features and functionality of the website.
