Launching a new eCommerce business is not a difficult task, but only if you pick the right eCommerce platform. According to the latest surveys, over 80% of the eCommerce websites in the world are powered by five eCommerce platforms. We are talking about international eCommerce platforms which are available to the residents of almost every country in the world. If you are interested in using a reliable international eCommerce platform check our list below.
This is one of the most used eCommerce platforms in the world today. What’s important to understand about it is that Magento is not designed for small sellers, those who want to try how it feels to be part of this business and those who have only a small number of products in their offer. However, for those who want to launch a serious online business and want to invest money, time, and energy Magento is an excellent option. This platform is rich in helpful features, but in order to get the most from it, you will need to hire a professional web developer/designer.
Shopify is another top-rated eCommerce platform used internationally. Thousands of merchants are using this hosted platform. Thanks to this platform, merchants are able to sell on their online store, but also on social media platforms and even in physical stores. It’s very easy to use Shopify’s software. There’s absolutely no need for IT skills in order to use Shopify. Of course, if you have some knowledge that’s a plus. We should also highlight the fact that Shopify provides 24/7 customer support. Shopify is a good solution for businesses of all sizes – from individual sellers with 5 products in their offer to popular stores with hundreds of sales per month.
WooCommerce is not your typical eCommerce platform. This is an extension (plugin) which is used on WordPress. The globally popular content management system is the key to using WooCommerce. This is another great example of an eCommerce platform which allows users to set up an online store easily and without any hassles. It’s especially useful for small business owners that don’t have more than 200-300 products in their offer. So, in case you are involved in large-scale eCommerce operations with a high number of sales per month, you should probably look for another solution like Magento or the enterprise versions of other eCommerce platforms like Shopify Plus.
