We work with on a variety of projects at Amity Digital, but one of our core competencies is Ecommerce.
We’ve been doing Ecommerce for over 12 years now – a lifetime in the online world – and have experience with homegrown systems, Big Commerce, Woo Commerce, and Shopify. We also have experience with platforms that needed to be wrestled into submission, but that’s another story.
One of the trickiest parts of running an Ecommerce shop is finding the right platform. The platform we’re most impressed with is Shopify, and we recommend it to about 90% of our clients. Every business is different so not every store is a perfect fit for Shopify, but in our experience, most are. It is an extremely salable solution that remains easy to use. You see, usability was a factor that many developers didn’t take into account before Shopify came along. Systems like Magento were the gold standard but they were overly complex, had a steep learning curve, and required most companies to have a developer on staff to keep it running.
