Best e-Commerce Platform – Open Source Vs. Proprietary? What GlobeSign Suggests?

What is an Open eCommerce Platform?

Open Source CMS typically means program code is freely available without any licensing fee. With Open Source Programs, users have access to make modifications, improvements, create extensions, etc. to tailor the application to meet their own needs.

What is Proprietary E-Commerce Platform?

On the other hand, Proprietary Content Management System is developed by a particular company, and they own the source code. If one wants to use Proprietary CMS then not only s/he needs to pay for the licensing, but often s/he also needs to engage their services team for configuration, implementation and ongoing maintenance.

What is GlobeSign’s criteria of an e-Commerce Platform Selection?

With multiple choices available out there, e-commerce platform selection comes down to really there key selection criteria:

  • Store size;
  • Store’s complexity and functional needs
  • Client’s budget

Based on client’s specific needs and complexity such as number of pages, dynamicity, number of products, number of blogs, potential for scalability, multiple languages, etc. we suggest best options for our clients.

Again, selection of a platform (custom vs. open source) is very important as it has implications on future maintenance. For example, an online shop that may be better suited on WooCommerce can also be fired off using Magento or a custom platform. Deciding on a specific platform may not only add complexity and cost to the project upfront but may also drive up maintenance cost over-time. 

Connect with GlobeSign to determine what’s the best CMS for your specific needs. Not necessarily Proprietary Software is better than Open Source since many Open Source Content Management Systems have a very large development community behind them and they compare well against Proprietary Software.
