The Best eCommerce Software Platforms for Drop Shipping ©

When I first started working online way back in the 90’s, getting a fully-featured online store meant hiring a programmer (or a team of programmers) to build one. Additionally, you would need a designer because the programmer would only focus on the store functionality. The overall launch expense was enormous, but it only began with the site, graphics and store design. Maintaining a store and security was so involved, the retailer would have to hire a webmaster or IT team to maintain it. All of this expertise and expense made having their own online store unfeasible for the average seller.

Thankfully, technology came to the rescue with eCommerce solutions that are designed for those with limited tech skills. WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) editing, automated functionality, built-in security, and point & click results have made it fast and easy for almost anyone to build and maintain an online store. You needn’t hire anyone until you’ve grown to the point of requiring an eCommerce Manager, and even that can be done remotely. Read more »
