Technical facets of Your E-commerce Platform You Must Know - Image 1
Security of your website
It is obvious for you to want your e-commerce site to be secure from hackers and for that you have to ensure that your software provider offer 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption making it possible for you to have end-to-end secure connection. To make your online transactions secure get your site powered by Hypertext Transport Protocol Secure (HTTPS) and to get extra security during payment transactions ensure your e-commerce software has a payment processing tool.
Design for mobile first
Websites that work intuitively on mobile devices would work fine even in desktops but not the other way round. Therefore, make sure your service provider agrees to develop all the features of your e-commerce site for mobile first and not vice versa, otherwise you would be at a loss from the beginning.
Performance of your site
The speed of your website would decide whether your customer would be at your site or they would abandon it to end up at your competitors’. Therefore, e-commerce specialists suggest getting tools integrated at your site to monitor page load times across multiple devices and also to send alert to your provider’s technician in case any problems arise.
Preferable cloud hosting
While choosing your service provider, keep in mind to find out which cloud hosting platform they would be storing your data. It is incredibly important to make sure that your website functions well, data is stored safely, backup and disaster recovery features are just perfect.
Third-party integration
To keep up with the competition and your customers’ expectations you would need to scale your website and require using plenty of software's to run your business. Hence, remember to check from the beginning that your e-commerce platform allows intuitive integration with numerous third-party tools.
Data analysis

Find out from your prospective service providers that if they have a dedicated data engineering team to give you regular custom reports about your customers’ on-site behaviour, their likes and dislikes and cart abandoning rates, if any. These would help you get deeper insights about your customers and your website performance, whether any elements need tweaking!
