E-Commerce solutions availalbe

Today, we see many eCommerce platforms already up and running. If I try to categories them based on their development cost, here we see the following cases:


Enterprise eCommerce platform like hybris, Oracle ATG Web Commerce, IBM Websphere Commerce, etc. 

 These platforms are massive and require many resources and budget to keep them running. These are proprietary solutions built by well-reputed companies to provide services related to eCommerce business from Front-end functionality to back-office automation.


SAAS based platform like Shopify, Wix etc

 In Sass based platform, you need to pay them monthly subscription fee or commissions from your earnings, but you don't have the much flexibility to customise anything there. You can to use whatever available there and being used by others as well. But you can start a business within a few minutes, and they would take care of all online transactions related. 


online market place like,, etc.

These are already established platform where other sellers sale their stuff and you can trade your products too. You no need to worry about payment, notification, accounting, shipping etc. They usually charge according to your sales.


Opensource Platforms like magento, woocommerce, opencart etc.

If you want your solution and you don't want to share the platform to any seller, you can create an e-commerce website using the available opensource platforms with some level of customisation. Here, you need the server to host and developer to customise the solutions. But the development cost would be less. Since someone already builds the platform, it might have some limitation which may stop you from implementing any customisation.


Custom Developed Solutions

Custom solutions are the best solution in terms of customisation, but the development cost would be at the higher side. However, you can get it developed according to your business without any limitation.

Database is not expposed to other application and can not be accessed from any dabase tools like dbVisualizer etc. In this mode ,database will be unknown from any other person except you.
