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.

Works With Stripe

stripe is a relative newcomer to the payment processing industry being founded in 2011. However, it's wasting no time in playing catch-up, and the new stripe Directory is intended to widen its appeal to general business.

The stripe Directory is a listing of Apps (currently over 300) that work with or integrate with stripe so you can use them to analyse and interpret your data. Building a directory of services that work with your product is not new, most eCommerce website builders publish a directory that lists external programs that work with their system. But it's new in the payment processor space, and stripe has so many integration options that it is rapidly becoming the "Go To" merchant in this field.
