We have experience building online stores on different platforms.
Below you can see a little bit about each of the different options we offer
OpenCart is a free E-commerce software that is easy to use and requires little resources of the server. A very robust solution.
E-commerce softare differs from Content Management Systems (such as WordPress with WooCommerce plugin) in that the system is built from the ground up for the purpose of selling stuffÂ online. It is a selling software.Â We recommend a pure E-commerce platform where online store is the main function of your project.
OpenCart has most of the features needed for a modern E-commerce solution installed. Many additional features are also available and the system is developer-friendly if you need tailored functionality.
Prestashop is a free E-commerce software that is easy to use and requires little resources of the server. A very robust solution.
Prestashop has all the features you need for a modern shop installed, and there are many additional modules available.
Prestashop and OpenCart are two equally good systems, only preferences separates them.
For projects where the main function is anÂ online store, we recommend a standalone solution with Prestashop (or OpenCart). This is because those areÂ built from ground up with selling online in mind. Also, in our experience, it will also be easier for you as a content editor with a standalone solution than a sulution built upon a CMS with a plugin.
Wordpress with WooCommerce
WooCommerce is the most popular e-commerce solution / plugin for WordPress. ItÂ is a full-featured solution with all you need for a normal webshop.
With this combination, you will get the the advantage of both website and e-commerce in one solution. A superb choice if you want website and e-commerce all in one place!
WordPress / WooCommerce is subject to hacking due to the popularity and one should take care to update the software whenever there is a new version available. It is also strongly recommended to install a security plugin. We provide a maintenance agreement should you want us to take care of this.
