Time, money and patience is required for custom software development.
Custom software development can really hurt, so do your research before committing to it.
Developing a customer e-commerce website can be very time consuming. Do you really need to try and “re-invent the wheel”?
The development process can also be annoying and irritating. More so if you don’t understand the technical aspect. Even seemingly small visual changes can seem to take way more time than you think they should.
You might start thinking…
“Am I being ripped off by my website developer?”
If you haven’t yet embarked down this process, pause and consider your options:
- Pay to develop custom software to exactly meet your needs. Which could be a long frustrating expensive journey or
- Use an existing e-commerce service like Shopify. Where in a few hours you could have a professional looking site live and ready to take orders.
I’m a software developer. Through years of experience of being paid to develop custom software. I recommend you avoid all the potential pains associated with option 1. Take option 2, start accepting orders today!
Save yourself the pain, take the easy way of using software. That you can then customize (within certain boundaries) for yourself!
