The top 10 best e-commerce software

During the COVID-19 times, we noticed, and a lot of research has shown that e-commerce is more important than ever. Earlier, we talked about how e-commerce can be the business solution during the COVID-19 period. But now the question is, "Which system is best for your organization?" Capterra, which was acquired by Gartner in 2015, helps you to make any software decision a bit easier. They listed the top 10 best e-commerce software, which you will find here.

The report

Capterra looks at user reviews, feature availability, and more. With that information, they also publish reports. The e-commerce software report is based on user reviews and online search activity. To be eligible, products must offer core e-commerce functionality and have at least 10 unique user reviews between June 2018 and June 2019. This report includes both standalone systems, and broader software suites that offer core e-commerce functionality in addition to other features. The methodology of the 2019 e-commerce software report is as follow: 

The top 10 methodology scores vendors on two dimensions: Reviews and Web Search Interest.

  1. The Reviews component considers the overall user rating (1-5 stars) from reviews in the last 12 months.
  2. The Web Search Interest component considers average monthly search volume for a standardized set of keywords for each product, as well as the position of the vendor’s domain on the search engine results page (SERP) for each keyword.

These two scores are weighted and combined into an overall score, which dictates the rank order of products in the top 10.

Enterprise commerce

We have to say that not every software is meant for enterprise-level companies. If we look at the software which is useful for an enterprise-level company, Magento is a great option. Magento is a market leader in the area of webshop software. Magento e-commerce is an open-source multishop platform. One in four webshops worldwide is built on a Magento platform. A stable application framework paired with excellent possibilities for integration and strong marketing tools makes Magento an excellent choice for visionary e-commerce managers. Magento was acquired by Adobe in 2018, which led to a multiplication of possibilities when it comes to integrating commerce, personalization, and content.
