8 Powerful Ecommerce Solutions Fit For Your Online Shop

It’s never easy to choose the BEST ecommerce solution fit for your business. There are lots of factors that you need to consider depending on your type of industry and other specific requirements.

To help you decide  on which platform to use, we enlisted the 8 powerful ecommerce solutions fit for your online shop.


WooCommerce has been in the ecommerce industry since 2011. It’s a free WordPress plugin and most online shops built with WordPress use WooCommerce.

WooCommerce is easy to use. All the information you need is located at the WordPress dashboard, which means everything you need is at your fingertips. It already has a secure payment gateway and a shopping cart as well. If you have a small and medium business and your company is already using WordPress, WooCommerce is ideal for you.


Magento is an open source ecommerce website platform released in March 2008.  It’s a standalone product that is popular with larger businesses that have agencies, and manage ecommerce sites for their clients. It offers a wide variety of plug-ins and themes, providing more than 50 payment gateways. With Magento, you can cross-sell or up-sell products, compare products, provide discount codes, and offer visitors an advanced filter for navigating the products.

Magento is ideal for large businesses such as enterprises with high volume stores and agencies managing multiple stores. However, Magento can be expensive for smaller businesses setting up their ecommerce shop.


If you’re a newbie in the e-commerce scene, you may want to choose Volusion as your platform to start with. It’s user-friendly and has a step-by-step wizard that will guide you through the set-up. It has more than 40 themes and more than 10 of them are free of use. With Volusion, you can sell from 100 to unlimited products, accept credit cards, accept payments with Stripe, PayPal and Amazon, handle shipping rates, and more.


Shopify is a Canada-based ecommerce solution founded in 2004 and one of the most successful and well-known ecommerce platforms in the industry today. Since then, Shopify provided online businesses with powerful additions that are currently trending.

It has a social shopping feature wherein your customers need not leave their social media accounts to buy from your online shop. You can not only integrate directly into your Facebook account and make it an ecommerce store, but you can also fully customize your online store and manage your products and inventory. However, these features and tools that Shopify has are not for free. Shopify has a monthly plan rate and its themes have an additional cost.


BigCommerce is in the ecommerce scene since 2009. It is notable for having the cleanest dashboard and clearest direction in building your online store in just a few minutes. It has modules for accepting cards and customizing your soon-to-be online shop that is neatly presented on the sidebar menu.

BigCommerce also offers support through phone, instant chat, email, articles, videos and access to e-commerce experts, to help in online selling. It even has a wide variety of templates and themes that you can use in designing your own store.

Big Cartel

If you’re into a minimalistic feature, you might choose Big Cartel, which focuses on this idea. Everything is presented in a simple and clear way, rather than being good-looking.

The main dashboard leads you to the most basic stats of your store: what you wanted to see when you log in to your store is what exactly comes out on your dashboard. One of the best thing that Big Cartel has is that it offers a free plan but pretty limited.


3dcart is the oldest ecommerce platform founded in 1977. It offers tutorials and setup steps from picking a template in designing your online shop to setting up your shipping options. With 3dcart you can sell online on eBay, Amazon, Google Shopping, Facebook, Shopzilla. It is also mobile and social media ready, giving you more chance to upsell and cross-sell from 100 to unlimited number of products. You can also accept payments using this platform.


Ecwid is the e-commerce solution with a free plan, but guarantees that the services offered are  not limited. It gives all the features that most ecommerce store owners needs: from 10 to unlimited products; unlimited orders; file storage and bandwidth; selling on multiple sites; blogs and social networks; selling on any device and on the move; customer address book; smart shipping calculator; integration with WordPress; Joomla and more; track inventory, selling digital goods, and accepting payments via 40 different payment options.

The features are affordable, however Ecwid is for small and medium businesses that will only have less than 100 products in their catalog.

All these ecommerce solutions have something to offer, and each of the them are built for different purposes, depending on what kind of business you own.
