The decision to choose a system for running an online store is a very important matter, and in this article we suggest how to approach this topic. One of the most important decisions we will have to make in the process of launching an e-shop will be the choice of the platform on which our store will operate.
So analyze your situation. Ask yourself some relevant questions. Below I have tried to collect them in a rather loose, but hopefully easy to consume form. In my opinion, these are the most important issues to start with. The list is divided into three categories.
These are questions that do not exhaust the subject, do not give a clear answer. No less it is a good start to analyze the situation you are in. Answering them will enable you to analyze the available solutions and, as a result, make the right decision.
Importantly: ask yourself the above questions even if you want to entrust the selection of a platform to an e-commerce agency struggling to implement e-commerce solutions. Trust me, the above questions, and probably many more (as long as the agency knows its stuff), will be asked of you. And thinking about the topic beforehand will make it easier for you to talk to agencies and choose the one that knows its job and is able to help you carry out the implementation effectively and without pain.
In the second part of the article you will learn about specific e-commerce solutions and systems. You will also read about their advantages and disadvantages which will make it easier to choose the right solution.
