Open source / License version :
Most of the startup entrepreneurs don’t know the difference between open source and license version. Let’s define them in brief. Open source means “the source code is available for modification by anyone” and licensed version means “it is a specialized form of contract between the producer and the end user. This agreement specifies the terms and conditions of usage”. So the entrepreneurs must have an idea which type of software is most suitable to build their online store. If you are in search of a fully customized store like themes, seasonal item addition, catalogue or order management and much more, then open source software gives you complete flexibility and freedom. This flexibility is not available with licensed software. It will come with varied restrictions like it will not allow third party module integration.
Feature rich software :
Before selecting any software, generally entrepreneurs must check the feature list that requires for online store. Usually Magento ecommerce software is used for developing large online store, which has extra budget to invest in resources. The enterprise edition of Magento ecommerce software has more features like frequent inventory updates.
Suitable for visitors ?:
There are so many examples of ecommerce websites, which looks great at first view, but when you navigate to other pages, it won’t work in real. Normally, ecommerce website is full with images and less with text, so it will take time to load and create impact on customer’s buying decision. If it is your first website, then it is worth to check the competition level. Take a look at competitor’s website and think about the strengths and weaknesses of that site. Always keep your customer in your mind while designing and building the site.
