July 23, 2010, Newsletter Issue #258: Critical Things to Remember with Shopping Cart Software

Tip of the Week

If you're considering going with open-source, boxed or custom ecommerce shopping cart software for your own shopping cart software solution, you need to take into account some critical things, including the following:
Software compatibility: It's great to be able to choose all your own software to create a custom shopping cart software solution. But make sure all your chosen shopping cart software products will work together before you go out and buy anything.
Disaster planning: If you're hosting your shopping cart software commercially, make sure your provider has solid off-site back-ups. If you're doing your own hosting, this is going to be up to you. But it's important to have a workable plan as part of your overall shopping cart software solution.
24x7 support: If something goes wrong with your shopping cart software -- on a weekend, in the middle of the night -- your customers are going to expect you to take care of it yourself. Make sure you can, with proper planning for support.
