By developing an e-commerce platform, you have to define your needs. Depending on your requirements, you can choose either a custom platform, pre-existing, customizable platforms such as Shopify, or CMS like Drupal or Magento.
The most known e-commerce platform, Shopify, helps to seamlessly set up an online store. It offers a wide range of features and themes that enable basic customisation. It’s optimised for mobile shopping and offers data reporting.
Custom ecommerce platforms include most of the advantages of pre-existing platforms but take customisation to the next level. It allows building a website from scratch, which can be beneficial for businesses with specific needs or offering a special product.
