eCommerce Website Builder News

Keep up to date with all the latest website builder news and technology advances.

The world of online website building is changing fast. Once clunky and awkward to use now cloud-based eCommerce builders are super easy, intuitive and have loads of great features that you wouldn't get with a standard Content Management System (CMS). Shopify has recently started experimenting with Artificial Intelligence - chatbots and helpdesk systems as well as virtual assistants to do some of the menial work for you. Stripe is fast developing easier payment systems that integrate with every type of application. Accounting software, CRM software and SEO tools - all are making a move to being cloud-based software as a service (Saas).

There are specialist website builders springing up in the fields of tuition and learning, and soon the young guitar teacher or Michelin chef will be able to build their own website to showcase their skills. With ease.

The share prices of publicly traded companies like Shopify and Wix keep rising month on month and for a good reason - they take away all the hard coding and replace it with unprecedented ease of use.

Shopify v EKM

EKM has over 50,000+ users in the UK and recently moved into new £3.5m offices to help fuel its meteoric growth. The headquarters have been custom-built and include a raft of state-of-the-art office technology, an expansive kitchen, rest-and-relaxation area, training and presentation auditorium - and a soon to be infamous slide reaching three stories. Here's why I think you should choose EKM over Shopify for your next eCommerce website:

DocuSign Payments Launches Today as the New Way to Sign and Pay

Following a successful beta program that kicked off in November last year, DocuSign – the global eSignature and Digital Transaction Management (DTM) leader – today made DocuSign Payments available to its US customers, with select international markets including the UK expected next month.

DocuSign Payments saves time and effort by providing a fast and easy way to collect payments and signatures in just one step. At launch – via the partnership with global payments platform Stripe – users can DocuSign and pay using Android Pay, Apple Pay or any major credit card. DocuSign will continue to integrate new payment partners – including Authorize.Net, Braintree and PayPal – in the coming months. Automated clearing house (ACH) payments, recurring payments and other functionality are expected to be available later this year.

We've made the short hop across town to more temporary, temporary offices and I'm honoured to be sharing the same room with Wayne who is one of the original crew from Boo.com.

For those too young to remember Boo.com was the original dot com success story until it ran out of money and became a symbol of the excess that was associated with the dot-com boom of 1999. It spent fast and died young burning through over $135 million of venture capital in just 18 months.

Wayne is a systems tester, and he's been regaling me with stories of how they would have platters of finest M&S sandwiches shipped in daily and lavish spreads and parties. He even has one of only three pairs of Boo.com trainers ever made. I'm so jealous!

Boo.com was a modern day example of how not to let simple things like customer experience get in your way. Trying to navigate an eCommerce website developed totally in Flash on a 56k modem line was never going to work, was it?
