When selecting ecommerce software you need to ask yourself how quickly does it help you to start fulfilling web orders, what investments are required to scale it up both in hardware and in recurring licencing costs, what will the cost of integrating to your existing web site be, what skills are required to maintain the site and can that be done inhouse or by your existing web design company?
When your site becomes a top tier shopping site, you also need to consider what investment is required for connectivity.

Preparation for e-retailer
In addition to selecting software, you need to consider how you are going to organise and budget for :-

  • content creation
  • awareness marketing
  • online campaigns
  • training of email representatives to handle customer services
  • internal business processes for logistics.

E-retailer supports the use of server hosting close to the backbone, another significant advantage for high volume sites.
