We must accept that the world is changing very fast. Probably, the economic crisis we have just passed worked as a catalyst for this shift. One of the most considerable changing was the modality of spending money. Nowadays, people, no matter that they are rich or poor think twice before making an important acquisition. As a consequence, the entrepreneurs prefer the light investments instead of risking money for great projects. A relatively interesting and profitable affair remains the online stores. This has the huge advantage that there is no rent or employees to pay. Some people are still reticent about, but more and more people buy products online.
No doubt, the high quality of the products in association with reasonable prices is the feature that attracts the potential clients, but still a good design has its role. If you want to launch a new online store you should know that the Internet is full of software solutions, best practices and secret tips to attract more customers. As we mentioned previously, WordPress is a universal solution for almost any type of website, but it has its competitors.
One of the most interesting WordPress competitors is OpenCart. It is an open source e-commerce solution that is simple to use, very customisable and assures the perfect ecosystem for managing an online store. It’s not very extensively used, but it has its market share that can’t be neglected.
