Shopping Cart Systems
There are basically two kinds of e-commerce websites - "Pure" e-commerce sites like Magento and OSCommerce, and "Plugin" sites such as VirtueMart for the Joomla! CMS or Woocommerce for WordPress. While any shopping cart system will sell your products online, having a website that gets traffic is probably more important to you than the layout of your checkout page. For this reason above all, we recommend a base CMS website with an e-commerce add-on, this way you can get the best of all worlds.
E-Commerce websites are easier to manage than ever, thanks to CMS systems like Joomla and WordPress having some of the best e-commerce add-ons in the world.
These intuitive programs have every feature and option you can think of, because millions of sites already use them and have contributed feedback to the software developers. This has caused these shopping cart systems to be incredibly diverse, with extensions and plugins to make them do anything you want.
Virtuemart E-Commerce is an extension of the Joomla! CMS, meaning that Joomla provides the framework for it to work in. Virtuemart is one of the top e-commerce platforms in the world, and has a dizzying array of features and options to choose from. Our web development specialists are experts in the Virtuemart system, including template customization, setup and programming, and additional add-ons to make it compete with the best in your industry.
