Enterprise eCommerce

Today's eCommerce landscape is more dynamic and competitive than ever. More and more brands are switching to hosted eCommerce solutions like Shopify Plus and benefiting from reduced costs, higher conversion rates and faster rates of innovation.


As online retail sales continue to grow, so does the level of competition and complexity in the marketplace. Continuous merchant innovation is vital to keep moving forward and expand market share. The brands that will win in tomorrow’s eCommerce landscape are the ones that respond quickly and deliver a superior customer experience across all touchpoints.

As an eCommerce business scales there are naturally benefits in terms of greater revenue generation, but new challenges and costs emerge around developing new platform features, maintaining a high degree of security and ensuring you have world-class hosting to keep downtime at bay.

Traditionally, solutions like Magento Enterprise have provided the answers. Whilst Magento still has a major place in market, smart brands are increasingly considering hosted solutions, such as Shopify Plus, which provide a wide range of benefits that allow brands to focus more on investing in customer acquisition and retention whilst outsourcing some of the expensive burdens like feature development, enterprise-grade hosting and complex PCI DSS compliance.

Challenges of using traditional eCommerce platforms

  • Your on-premise platform crashes during high volume periods and you're losing sales
  • The cost of IT maintenance and PCI DSS compliance is becoming increasingly expensive
  • You’re paying high amounts in transaction fees
  • You need multiple store fronts
  • You need ERP or other legacy system integrations.
  • You require developers for basic changes to your website
