Ecommerce is rising exponentially in the transactions conducted from business to Consumers relationship. Online business is more prevalent nowadays than offline stores on the street or in the malls. Ecommerce has become the most effective way to present your business, most of all because it is user friendly and more than half of the world prefers shopping online now.
So now as we know that the business should come online the major question comes in choosing the platform. As a major provider of custom software solutions in India, our clients come with all the questions and share the experience how things have not been doing good with their peer`s and challenges of working on the Paid platforms. So let’s take a peek on the reasons why should you develop your own ecommerce solution.
Reasons to develop your own solution online:
- Your own Product:
When you develop your own product you have ownership on code and website as whole, it is your Property. You have right to resell or sub let the website to a 3rd party or a business associate.
- Very low cost:
The initial cost of developing your business online seems quite high but even with the advanced features it actually becomes free within a span of 18-24 months. Whereas when you use online platforms you will be charged every month for something that you do not own. So as a premium ecommerce development services provider our experience tells us that if you believe in your business model and are confident that you are staying in business for over 18 months then you must decide on developing your own system.
- Unique Design:
Using standard platforms actually devalues your business. For example, com currently has over 9 million users. On their website, they mention that they have about 100 customizable templates. That means that if you use XYZ.com, you are probably using the same template as 180,000 other people. Ecommerce website design is the most critical part of standing out of the crowd and a copied or generic design is not good for a long terms sustainable business model.
- Online platforms have very High editing cost:
So in case one decides to edit the existing website as per own requirement then the cost of getting those things developed crossed ay acceptable limit. For Ex the cost can go up to whooping $100/hr.
- Freedom of choice:
So if at the end of the day if you do not like the solution you are using and have already invested on content creation(please remember content and images are always paid ) and code editing, you will have nothing to move forward with.
- You have more command:
If you use an open platform then you can have benefit of Competitive price because you have thousands of service providers to choose from. In case of open platforms you can easily shift your code with content to different hosting provider or service provider that will respond on time and at a competitive price.
Standard platforms will charge you from $50/month to $300/month (Over $7000 in two years) for the reports that our Admin with extensive experience in software product development in India will give you free of cost, for complete life time. Furthermore, Google Analytics is free of cost and have very low cost on implementation of custom deep linking.
- No ads:
Your own website will never show 3rd party ads(you have to pay the platforms per month to not to show ads) that will consume additional bandwidth for which you will be charged again.
- Full control:
For the businesses with vision to appear appealing online as they require it to have full control of the front end and back end functionalities. In future the business may need to integrate point of sales, multiple login, data gathering, Inventory management, Hr and Marketing module integration, sub leasing, multi store function, blockchain application development – all these features are easy to handle as per your requirement when you develop your own solution.
- More resilient:
