There are numerous solutions on the market used for e-commerce development, they all allow you to sell your goods and services online. One of the main differences is in how they manage the items in the backend or product management area.

We have been working with e-commerce systems for many years and have built bespoke systems that complied with the various standards at the time of creation. These days we tend to do our ecommerce development with e-commerce platforms such as WooCommerce and PrestaShop.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce logoWooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress and is by far the most popular e-commerce platform in the world. There are over 5 million online stores using wooCommerce which is 40.9% of all online stores (ref: https://barn2.com/woocommerce-stats/).

We have extensive experience in installing, configuring and customising WooCommerce. We even have our own bespoke plugin that we adapt for each install giving that edge to your website to help it standout and achieve those all-important sales.

PrestaShop

PrestShop logoPrestaShop is a stand-alone open source ecommerce software package. It has an intuitive dashboard and rich default functionality. The default management tools are excellent and are generally easy to use.

There are many robust modules (plugins) to help add that all important extra functionality and if an of-the-shelf solution is not available we can create a bespoke one especially for you.

Which one to choose?

If you are familiar with the workings of WordPress you will quickly become accustomed to the workings of WooCommerce. It can be installed on an existing WordPress installation and customised to your requirements. PrestaShop comes into its own when all you want is a fully functional e-commerce site that you want to use, not just to sell your products and services, but to manage them too. Both systems can be fully customised to suit your and your customer’s needs. And each one can connect to your preferred payment portal. The only one we swerve in our e-commerce development is Magento.
