The system and process
It used to be that the only conversation is “which is the right platform to use?”, with clients understanding that a certain one would hold the answers, nowadays there are many, and various benefits to different ones, Woocommerce, Opencart or Magento for example.
Which one we use will be determined by the size of your business, who is using it, your marketplace and your requirements.
We tread a similar process to our standard process here, however with ecommerce theres more to think about, the key sticking points our experts can help guide you with are normally around:
- Payment Integration
- Content/Platform Migration
- Aftersale Integrations
- SEO Implementation
- UX – Smooth Checkout Process
- Training Your Team
