Getting Into E-Commerce
E-commerce websites enable you to sell your products, take donations, and allow users to make payments, among other features. We will help you determine what sort of solution will work best for your organization.
If the best solution for your business is to take advantage of a third party platform, we can still help you get started and provide consulting services, as needed. Platforms like Shopify, Square, PayPal, Stripe, etc. do have their advantages—mainly in that they allow for ready-made e-commerce websites with a variety of different predetermined features that may accomplish exactly what you need.
However, with all pre-made solutions, there is a lack of customization of features and functionality available. You are limited in what you can do and must work within the structure and parameters of the specific platform. Custom e-commerce solutions have more flexibility and opportunities for integration in your organization's environment. Features can be designed specifically for your organization, and completely customized to suit your needs.
A custom solution makes your website unique and sets you apart from the competition. It also allows your internal staff to be more efficient, and reduces the possibility of human error.
