How We Test and Rate Ecommerce Website Builders
The above rating is based on extensive independent reviews of each of these ecommerce website builders. To let you know which system is right for you, we put each brand through a series of user feedback tests and ratings.
For an ambitious online store, you’ll need great features and access to a range of apps, which is included in our feature review. But there is no point in having these options if they are too complex to use. That’s why we also do real user testing, inviting users of different skill levels to try out website builders and provide feedback on how they found them accessible.
We value the variety and quality of templates you can use to build an online store, and we assess the help and support available when you need help.
Finally, we give it a very high value for money rating, based on the variety of plans available and what you get in return for your investment.
If you are looking to make a smaller, more boutique store, we recommend that you choose Wix – it has fantastic ecommerce features and competitive pricing plans that will be more appealing than Shopify’s top tier for department stores.
Shopify came out on top of our tests. They’re a market leader when it comes to building a great online store, and for good reason. It has some fantastic features and most importantly it is a great brand to choose if you are building a large scale eCommerce site.
That’s why you can trust our Tech.co. recommendations Wix is a great platform for small stores while Shopify can handle anything you throw at it.
