Ecommerce: convenience comes first

The development of a fast and convenient (for end-users, not developers) eCommerce system demands a complex approach. Of course, it is possible to use out-of-the-box eCommerce platforms to save clients time and money. However, it is not usually possible to meet the client’s requirements in this way. More often the market wants to see unique solutions and characteristics. That is why business owners choose to address experienced eCommerce developers who have already figured out how to overcome issues with payment methods, backend and database support, orders processing, and notification for the staff.

Evgeniy, the technical lead of the CMS department: “The most common mistake while working on eCommerce projects is that client takes an internet shop for a catalog of goods with a shopping cart – but not a system with its own workflow. The thing is: a client needs a complex solution to create a successful eCommerce business.”

Ecommerce: from click to delivery

While developing an eCommerce system you need to take into consideration the target audience, particular characteristics of the products to sell, trade characteristics of the region, and many other aspects. Such moments influence the method of payment and delivery, order status notifications, and so on. Popular payment methods vary in different countries. Some may be not available or unpopular in the target region of the client. A delivery company may provide data that can be integrated with the backend of the online store and the system should be able to process and display it correctly.

The eCommerce site should meet not only the requirements of potential customers but also the requirements of the staff. It means that the system has to be simple and automated.
