E-commerce has revolutionised retailing. It requires a new perspective and a variety of new skills. The ease of using top ecommerce software is a major consideration to people who know rather more about business than about computers. Below is a summary of four of the most popular e-commerce software to hand.
Volusion boasts an advanced HTML mode and advanced security tool such as fraud score applications. It is web-based, and does not require the installation of programs. Wizards guide users, but it is not the easiest application to use. Templates can be sorted by popularity and newness. Some 50 major credit cards and electronic gateways are supported. Unfortunately, the number of products that can be sold is limited. Some reviews have described Voluvision as the best e-commerce application currently available. This is due to its large feature set, easy-to-understand interface, outstanding customer support and mighty security tools.
Shopping Cart Elite 2012 provides great features including a Blog Poster which enables you to syndicate your blog information to third parties. The services of e-commerce software development specialists are available from the provider of this software. This product is well-suited to people running purely informational websites. The software is upgraded monthly, so users can stay one step ahead of competitors. Facilities exist to look up prices for Fedex and UPS. Shopping cart programs often have credit card processing as their only payment option, but Shopping Cart Elite has multiple options including PayPal, Google checkout and e-checks. Many tutorials are provided. One downside is that there is no product comparison tool. This software is best suited to someone who desires an all-in-one solution to website creation and SEO.
Shopify is one of the simplest e-commerce applications available. More than 25,000 online stores use Shopify, and while a number are very well-known, it is best-suited to small and medium-sized businesses. Shopify features an inventory menu to help you to monitor your inventory and a customer menu to organise customer information for marketing campaigns. Designs can be extremely attractive. Shopify’s App Store covers every imaginable function, including product reviews, live chat, daily deals, Facebook integration, loyalty programs and enhance analytics. Some apps are free, but most cost a few pounds a month. Shopify is another hosted cart solution, requiring no installation of programs. A review at Art of Blog said that Shopify was designed by folk who could show Apple a thing or two about how to make user-friendly yet powerful software.
There is, alas, no built-in POS system or facility to create daily deals or a loyalty programme. Shopify brims with features to enable you to create a successful online store. It is easy to use and meets the needs of any skill level, and will suit you whether this is your first e-commerce website or you have many more.
Ashop Commerce 2012 is another e-commerce application that is very easy-to-use. It has been around for about a decade. It provides a number of payment options and SEO tools. Webspace can be free. Ashop Commerce has a guarantee of 99.8 percent uptime. Upgrades are free for life. This software does not handle daily deals and loyalty programmes, and has no built-in POS system. It is so easily used and has so many website design capabilities that is remains an excellent e-commerce solution.
