Here are some special technical tips for those who want to start online shop.
CodeCloud had a research on 100 such shop and they found that, 35% shop use WordPress, 25% Magneto, 15% Opencart, 10% Framework (code ignitor, cake PHP) and other 15% are the rest who use other cart or developed software.
But 40% of them have no technical protection. And there are about 200 shops on Facebook who sell by showing or selling through Facebook page. Many beginners are hesitated about choosing shopping cart.
Although WordPress is CMS but it can be converted into e-commerce shop through plugins. It is highly famous for its easy applications. After that, a complete shopping cart software is Magento. Its technical features are very strong but people are annoyed with its high loading time.
