In the philosophy of ClicShopping, we explained that a project to develop an online e-commerce must be considered and matured through a strategy and objectives.
Too many companies realize a project just because they must appear on the internet, anticipate a competitor... This is legitimate, but do so without investment objectives, risk to have very quickly some problems and cause unforeseen costs or major disappointments.
Small merchants or SMEs want to reducing costs to a minimum, but quickly realize that their website is not frequented or not orders made â€‹â€‹... Often the expectation goes to disappointment. Opting for a OpenSource solution is very interesting in itself because it avoids defining a specification requires special expertise or prohibitive development costs.
However, open source does not mean all free. Unfortunately, many people think they can sell on the Internet without making a single investment or very little, which is not true because the cost of maintenance, evolution, development, change is almost the same as a proprietary solution. A tool has been designed to ensure maximum effectiveness in achieving your goals.
