Singaporeans love online shopping, and both large businesses and small ecommerce sites have the scope to make money. If you are looking for the best platforms for ecommerce Singapore, choices include BigCommerce, WooCommerce and Shopify.
Here are the things you need to check before selecting one.
- You would want the ecommerce platform to be as flexible as possible. More free themes, features and plugins are handy, and if you consider that component alone, Shopify does better than the other two.
- The cost of using an ecommerce platform does matter, at least for new websites, and if you don’t want to spend huge initially, WooCommerce is your best bet. Shopify is more cost effective than BigCommerce because it has more free themes, but you have to pay transaction fees for other payment gateways, which isn’t the case with BigCommerce.
- All three ecommerce platforms – BigCommerce, WooCommerce and Shopify – have good features, but if you seek more advanced options, Shopify is better. It is expensive, but better, while WooCommerce boasts of an incredibly active community.
In case of WooCommerce¸ you still have to pay for domain and hosting, so the ecommerce site isn’t entirely free in that context.
