Today again, i shall be walking you all through the phase of E-commerce development with the top right tool to get the deal done. Some times ago, i wrote an article about a total internet beginner guide to E-shop “E-commerce”, well i think you should see this as a somehow more indepth into the right tool that will help this dream achieve. Since the boom of the internet as i’ve discussed, many shop and industry owners have moved from their physical shop to a more complex shop but this had allowed them to be seen by the general public rather being seen by the people around only. Well, snce this is the case, many products and innovative brands have been saved from going to extinsion.
Well, thats not the point here today, the point is that to achieve that dream of going to the complex shop where the entire globe can visit to buy a goods, there are some important things to take into consideration. The first as stated in the previous post is a good and reliable webhost. Getting such will save you not only for your products ranking in the search result but also will help people do what they have to do as quick as possible.
The other things were the tools. The tools shall be discussed right now.
Since the boom of the internet, some great developers and programming enthusiasts have decided to develop softwares that can handle many things from Content management to Social networking making things easier for web developers and maintainers. Assumming everyone still had to develop each script for himself just to blog not to talk of owning a E-shop, things would have being very rigid and awful although Web developers would have being earning suoer huge but they would’ve gotten bombarded with enourmous tasks which might make things worst for their lives. Anyway, to make things more clear, those development companies then decided to develop software to fill in gaps and not only that, they open sourced those software making things easy to access and modifiable to other developers and or experienced web owner.
Well, this had motivated lots and lots of other developers that many had began developing their very own softwares and licensing it as free and open source. So there were lots and lots of softwares in the internet and thats a gig thanks to the innovation of the internet.
Well, since our road is focused on the E-commerce, we shall only discuss about the top 4 best e-commerce tools for an online shop.
“Is that possible? E-commerce…i can buy, push a shopping cart, pay and recieve my commodities…i doubt it.”
Well if you are still in that league, well i guess you are kinda old school. Well, today as far as software development is concerned, you can do virtually anything which you normally do in a supermarket right on the internet. With tools like Payment gateway, Shopping cart, Shipping method and account creation, you are simply one step into realising the next shop on the internet. Now, how do we select the best out of the many softwares….
well, dont get me wrong…all are best but there are usually some that offer some more functionalities than the other and this makes me rate them above the others. Okay….am also a web developer and i know what it takes to write a simple script….im not criticizing.

But with tweaked functions, I would charge “$2500” yeah because its a very powerful software. Powerful enough to defend you in your absence.

Now with my four list of the beat Open source tools, you can see that all these tools are best made by their authors for great multitude and made to serve a large area. Despite the fact that it could be confusing which is better, that’s why I would actually like to write a close comparison between them all based on my personal reviews and findings.
Now you can easily select which you feel is better for you out of the box. Those tools are super made with powerful user interface and nice tools to make the job very easy. Well I would say since the industrial revolution back in the 50s, robots have taken over most of human jobs. This is why we have to do less but our robots do more.
Using A CMS
This has a very great advantage to a very long extent. Somebody like me would prefer using a CMS as a shopping cart for a client that seeks all in one functionality. Yes “AIO” The advantage of using a CMS is very long and huge on the list.
