Some Ecommerce Options

shopify-partner-300x68Many companies are using content management systems like WordPress or Shopify to build your websites. I can build from scratch if you like without the use of these CMS, but most companies can make use of this technology that provides greater control at lower cost. A great ecommerce website can be created with little or even without any programming knowledge. You do need to have some knowledge how to use the system and design applications such as Photoshop as well as the time. I will design to fit your needs, if you don’t need special design creation or features you can save on set up and quote the best price for you, then we manage your site updates or show you the dashboard for your site to easily make revisions for you and your staff.

“Shopify and WooCommerce are both great choices, Shopify has package pricing and is easy to use, maintenance and support is taken care of with the hosting by Shopify. WooCommerce is a free and flexible, and integrates as a plugin that works with many self hosted (you need to purchase hosting and domain) WordPress themes, you are completely responsible for you own maintenance and support. The best choice will depend on the needs of your business.

wordpress-logo-2x-300x69The WooCommerce plugin is free. WooCommerce does not offer a complete online storefront, so you’ll have to find your own URL, hosting, theme, etc. You will also have to provide your own security and maintenance. For transactions, there are a lot of choices of payment gateways that include services such as PayPal, Amazon, and Stripe. PayPal takes major credit cards, provides security, and provides nice shopping cart features. Amazon is free and connects to your Amazon seller account. Each provider has their own transaction fees. For example, Stripe has no monthly fee and charges 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.”

“There are both free and paid themes for Shopify and adds POS rate + no credit card fee, unlimited products, 24/7 support, discount codes, a free card reader, and fraud analysis tools. The upgrade per month brings the online rate down as well as the in person rate. It has 5 GB of storage and adds gift cards, professional reports, and abandoned cart recovery.

For getting a store online fast and easy, Shopify delivers. It’s easy to use and you don’t have to worry about maintenance. You don’t own the site and the cost of hosting and apps can get expensive over time. Although you can do a lot with Shopify you’re more limited than you are with WooCommerce. If you want an online store that’s easy to deal with and you’re willing to pay whatever it costs, Shopify is a good choice. It’s simple, looks great, has excellent e-commerce features, and hosting and maintenance are taken care of. Support is easy to get if you need it and you can expand your store’s features and functions with tons of add-ons.

A WordPress site powered by WooCommerce will be cheaper and give you more control. The WooCommerce plugin is free and you can choose from literally thousands of themes, both free and premium, that integrate nicely with WooCommerce.”

Native Apps

“Native apps live on the device and are accessed through icons on the device home screen. Native apps are installed through an application store (such as Google Play or Apple’s App Store). They are developed specifically for one platform, and can take full advantage of all the device features — they can use the camera, the GPS, the accelerometer, the compass, the list of contacts, and so on. They can also incorporate gestures (either standard operating-system gestures or new, app-defined gestures). And native apps can use the device’s notification system and can work offline.”

Mobile Web Apps

“Web apps are not real applications; they are really websites that, in many ways, look and feel like native applications, but are not implemented as such. They are run by a browser and typically written in HTML5. Users first access them as they would access any web page: they navigate to a special URL and then have the option of “installing” them on their home screen by creating a bookmark to that page.”
