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.

Your boss might take you out for dinner, or you might have "free pizza Fridays", but ultimately you'll pay for that in extra time donated to the front line effort. Buying loyalty with a free lunch is a battle-tested tactic! Your customer...

Primarily this act deals with rights to return faulty goods for refund, replacement or repair and includes rights on the purchase of digital content.

What Is Enterprise Software And Do You Need It? Where is the line drawn between being an eCommerce retailer or an enterprise eCommerce retailer? What is “enterprise level software” and should you be using it? A crude benchmark might be that if you are achieving over £250,000 in retail sales per year, then you could be considered an enterprise-level retailer. If you were starting a new eCommerce project and you already had that level of retail business (from brick and mortar stores) then you would go for an enterprise solution from the beginning....

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...
