    What is an Ecommerce Solution?

    “Ecommerce” is a term that has come to be used in many different ways. “Ecommerce solution” describes a specialized software that helps business owners build a web store and run it over the internet.  It’s the backend components that run the shopping portion of your website and can sometimes even create the look and feel of your store front. These back-end components include the web hosting, interface, and appearance.

    The front end design elements control your store theme and more.  The difference between the low-end and best ecommerce solutions is which components they offer, how they use them, and the quality of them.  There are hundreds on the market so it can get confusing to try and research all of them.  One of the best solutions available for small-to-medium business owners is the shopping cart software by PinnacleCart.  They offer an amazing set of features at a very reasonable price.
