Custom E-Commerce Websites for Every Need
WordPress Based Shopping Carts
I have experience with a number of shopping cart plugins for WordPress. My favorite is WooCommerce for both its ease of use and the number commercially available Extensions. While powerful out-of-the-box, WooCommerce Extensions will let you work with different payment gateways, integrate with shipping companies or add some highly customized functionality.
MIVA Merchant has been around a long time, and there’s a good reason why. It’s still one of the most powerful e-commerce platforms out there. It’s perfect for larger e-commerce projects. Like WooCommerce above, MIVA has a marketplace full of useful plugins (they refer to them as Modules) that will allow for added functionality.
Making it Easier to Buy
No matter which e-commerce platform you use, it’s important to streamline the online shopping experience for your customers. That means:
- Straightforward navigation that allows customers to find the products they need.
- Allowing customers create and edit accounts on your website.
- The ability for customers to create “wish lists” and share it with their friends via email or social media.
- Optimizing your website for mobile shoppers.
E-commerce is now more affordable than ever – so what are you waiting for?
