The Best eCommerce Platforms and Scripts

The Best eCommerce Platforms

So, you want to open an eCommerce store- congrats! To help get you online, you will need the services of a good eCommerce web host (such as underhost) as well as a managed and secure platform. To help you make an informed decision, below are 4 of the very best eCommerce platforms to choose from.


1) OpenCart.

This great-looking platform is a great option because it is free and very scalable. Another advantage of OpenCart is that you can sell as many categories and products (in as many languages) as you want. In addition, you can accept multiple currencies and you also have the choice of 8 shipping and 20 payment options.


2) Magento.

Magento is used by many high-profile clients such as Nespresso, Samsung and The North Face, to name just a few. You therefore definitely can’t go wrong with them! Although you need to pay for the Enterprise Edition (which contains countless amazing features), the Community Edition is entirely free and is perfectly good enough for the vast majority of people.


3) WooCommerce.

WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin and is well-loved by many people around the world due to its capacity for being completely customizable. This means that you have many lovely themes and designs to browse through and choose from. In addition, it offers you a great, safe and secure payment gateway and shopping cart.


4) PrestaShop.

PrestaShop is fast becoming a highly popular option in terms of eCommerce platforms due to its robust features and its ability to give its customers excellent back office features and applications. These features and applications include order, inventory, shipping and customer management. With PrestaShop, your revenue can be sent directly to your bank account by utilizing the latest advances in technology.
