E-commerce Solutions

Have an idea to build an app or website and sell some goods online? A basic app or website will not do; you need an e-commerce solution. “e” refers to an electronic medium and “commerce” refer to the buying and selling of goods. “Commercial” refers to best business practices intended to make profits. Thus, an e-commerce solution is a web software that allows a company to sell its goods (or the goods of other sellers) online, expand their consumer base and then make profits on the same. The goods involved can be digital or physical goods. Amazon and Flipkart are the well-established players in this space in India.

An e-commerce platform helps the developers build user friendly and reliable online shopping websites and apps with payment gateway integration, order tracking, status updates via mail and sms etc. OpenCart, Magento and Shopify are the major e-commerce platforms.

But nowadays, everyone who has a brick and mortar store needs to take their business online for better visibility. They go to a reputed web development company that deploys a suitable e-commerce solution based on their needs. There are also many who have an online store only.

Myntra and AJio are exclusively for buying clothes. Grabon, Mydala, Nearbuy, DesiDime, etc. offer us coupons and deals to other e-commerce sites. There are also many local websites that sell groceries, fish and meat! For the consumer, all of this adds to the convenience to buying goods with a few clicks sitting in the comfort of the home or office.
