Over the past 14 years (seems like such a long time now) commerce has been slowly but surely migrating from bricks and mortor to the e-commerce shop front at a rate which would be comparible to that of the usage of power technologies made in the late 1800’s by Edison and Tesla.
Australia for example have seen online transactions increase at rates of around 27-28% a year. The rate doesn’t look like it will decrease anytime soon which is great news for all business owners who sell physical products buy haven’t made the move to the new commerce platform known as e-commerce.
What is making it even more impressive is the options that are becoming available to business owners who want to develop an e-commerce website. The options for payment methods and the respective providers have increased, shipping methods and even shipping techniques have increased as well. All of the overheads involved with having an e-commerce website are constantly dropping in comparison to traditional day to day operations of a physical store.
The one thing that keeps popping up though is the amount of different shopping carts available in the market. There are so many questions that comes to mind for business owners like… Which one is the best one, which one has the best features and more importantly which one is the most cost effective both short term and long.
The short answer is that there is not one given solution that ticks all of these boxes. People will tell you that x,y or z are the best options but the truth is unless they have honestly seen really great results out of a given platform they cannot tell you which is going to be the best.
