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.

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:

Shopify has been on a massive growth spurt for the past few years and is making inroads into the UK eCommerce market, but for UK users is it the best choice? There are some fundamental reasons why UK users should choose Shopwired rather than Shopify to build their online business:

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...

When I did the first Lemonstand Review the guys at the eCommerce solution with the coolest name let me have a sneak peak at the new blog feature they were developing. Six months have passed, and they've been hard at work refining the component and adding some great new features to make blogging with the Lemonstand platform a breeze. It's been an age-old problem – how to beef up your eCommerce store with extra content when you don't have any means of blogging. Most eCommerce platforms have the functionality to add extra pages,...

Is it possible to manage your online business from a Smartphone? The major players in the online website builder space seem to think so and hot on the heels of new App releases from Shopify and Weebly comes this new mobile App release from Wix. Personally, I think the bold claims that you can run an online store from a Mobile App while you sit on the beach and sip Pina Coladas all day are a long way off the mark. But there is mileage in being able to administer some portions of your business from...

If you've been using a Shopify template that doesn't have sections (that means nearly everyone), then the new Shopify theme editor is a good reason to move to one that does. Shopify has launched their new editor but only one of their templates (Debut) support sections at the moment and this is a feature that is going to be added to their templates over time. You can be sure that new templates that support the new “section” feature will be added quickly though so keep your eye out for a suitable theme in...
