Ousting 4 Common eCommerce Myths With Facts

It is time to oust the often too common eCommerce platform myths that can have an effect on guiding you towards success so hopefully, after gaining some insight from our four points you’ll be in the right frame of mind to move forward with confidence:

Myth: Development Has To Be Tricky And Taxing

Truth: this is a definite myth thanks largely to the way things were in the 90s. Fortunately, we have taken some significant strides since then and we’re way past all that. If you want to lessen your eCommerce development stress, then the ideal option is to seek help from people in the know. This includes our team of Magento hosting UK experts who have the skills and know how to set you up for the future. Another plus is that you’ll get great eCommerce functionality with Magento too.

Myth: You NEED An Omni Channel Service

Truth: We should all be aware as business owners that we should be doing our very best to offer a flawless customer experience, and it really is expected these days too. It can take a while to solidify good customer loyalty, but many of us will have witnessed how just a single bad customer experience can mean losing a customer. By allowing for the building of native apps and solutions across channels, while still having access to the same core commerce platform through a single API means you will lessen the complication of setting up a seamless brand solution across all channels, but still provide a single customer-centric view to the business. It’s a win, win!

Myth: Big Bulging Budgets

Truth: Again, this is a myth we can dispel easily. Obviously, you could spend, spend, spend ‘til your heart’s content if your bank balance allows it, but it doesn’t always mean you’ll get the best out of your eCommerce business. With modern commerce as at the forefront of your service, you have to front up a lesser amount of money due to the fact that there are no licensing and businesses fees to fork out for. Many platforms are manageable in that you can build the functionality around your needs, Magento included. This is the ideal way to go about things as it will save you necessarily spending money which can be spent elsewhere, or kept in the bank.

Myth: Change Means Time Consumption

Truth: We can solve this myth by the fact that that on modern platforms, enhancements and upgrades are made available sometimes on a daily basis. Changes are so seamless these days that they’re really not time-consuming whatsoever. The customers rarely or never have to change their approach to adapt to changes, but are able to easily and quickly benefit and take advantage of them.
