Ready-made platforms: fast, but not always effective
Using a ready-made solution, you save time on development: the platform already has a basic set of necessary functions. In some cases, a ready-made solution can cost less than an individual development, but this is where the benefits end.
If you choose WebSailors- offshore custom software development then creating an online store will cost you much less.
There is no individuality.
Ready-made systems are always unified and allow for very few changes. In other words, if you have certain requirements for a future online store, you may not be able to fulfill them. It is important to note here that each business is unique, and the creation of an online store for it should be carried out according to individual criteria. This is necessary not only in order to distinguish the online store from others. It is also important to ensure that the store meets the expectations of users, offers them the necessary functionality, etc.
Any ready-made system has a certain variability - for example, you can yourself determine the number of pages or sections in the catalog or the location of information blocks on a particular page. Any more serious changes will require improvements. As a result, it may turn out that the financial and time costs for completing the finished system will be greater than the costs for developing an individual solution.
The financial benefit is uncertain.
Almost all-ready-made solutions are paid, and for many of them, the license is purchased not once, but for a certain period. This means that it will need to be renewed and, accordingly, additional costs will be incurred. If you are planning that your online store will run for a long time, the volume of these costs can be quite impressive.
