eCommerce Web Development can come in many common forms such as Hosted and Self Hosted Solutions, see our eCommerce Web Development page for more information on Hosted and Self Hosted eCommerce solution.
However, you might not be aware but there is one alternative eCommerce website design solution which is rarely discussed – a custom built eCommerce solution. No themes, No plugins, Better Security including complete and utter control. Bliss!!
There is a very basic custom built eCommerce interface on www.DigitalSales.ie (integrated with Stripe) – this link is in fact attached to all our outgoing invoices, https://www.digitalsales.ie/payment.php – a simple example of a bespoke eCommerce Website interface.
Obviously with Hosted and Self Hosted solutions much of the core eCommerce functionality is already coded which reduces the cost. However, let’s say with a Magento payment page, the First Name and Surname name are on different fields, like:
This is hard coded, and in order to modify this section of the payment page, reducing the number of fields as possible, turning two fields: First Name and Last Name to just one field: Full Name – however, making this change would require software development hours.
This is one of the disadvantages of Hosted and Self Hosted solutions – some changes are simply not possible and when they are possible, there is significant man hours involved. Of course, cost consideration is a factor in most decisions, and bespoke eCommerce Website development does come at a cost.
Bespoke eCommerce Web Development requires coding from the ground up, so there are more resources required, Developers and Designers, more resources, more man hours, more cost. Bliss usually comes at a price!! So, lets take a look at a blissful outcome, www.cloud9knitwear.com – a recent custom-built eCommerce Web Development and Design project from Digital Sales, with full backend functionality.
