Best eCommerce Solutions Software 2017

The software market for eCommerce Solutions is dominated by a fairly even ratio of self-hosted and hosted platforms that offer similar eCommerce Solutions, many of which are also open-source. They focus on affording business owners greater control over their eCommerce efforts by offering online store-building capabilities and shopping cart solutions, both of which enable the management of orders, payments and inventories.

Vendors typically offer storefront templates that can be customized and solutions that optimize the customer experience through an increased number of payment methods. A differentiating factor can be language support that bridges multiple geographies.

Vendors that distinguish their products, as seen in the Crozdesk Market Radar™, by offering advanced functionalities such as marketing tools, built-in SEO, SKUs and other variations, increased scalability, social media support, customizable storefront templates, plugin support and A/B testing.

The Crozdesk Market Radar™ also reveals a high number of lightweight software vendors that place a greater emphasis on niche features such as competitor price tracking or membership management. Some vendors also specialize in specific areas of commerce to further distinguish themselves.

Different types of eCommerce solutions are suitable for different types of businesses. Some common types include enterprise, hosted and open source solutions. Key features of eCommerce software usually focus on product catalogs, ordering systems, payment options, and customer management. While any eCommerce software lets you create and manage a product catalog, some solutions come with advanced features like the ability to list related products, the ability to customize a product with personal images and the ability to generate coupon codes. You need to decide what features you need. Some key points to consider are scalability, whether the platform can grow with your organization, whether the software seamlessly integrates with other applications, reporting and analysis features or whether the software has adequate features to monitor sales and analyze customer behavior. You may also want to consider security features, responsive design options, user experience, the user interface and the customer support system.  Read the full software guide...
