Stop being dependent on a platform provider - move your store !
Popular sales platforms operating on the basis of the SaaS (Software as Service) model, make every customer from the first day of cooperation have permanent access to free updates and technical support. Everything is supervised by a number of qualified specialists who will respond to inquiries or doubts, and if necessary implement new, even custom or complex solutions.
But wait... is this it? Isnt that just standard? Maybe let’s talk about reality.
And what about add-ons? Each of these platforms often has its own official trading platform, such IT Marketplace, where you can purchase modules, templates or services related to running an online store.
Going forward, some of the biggest drawbacks include the store's often problematic optimization for mobile devices, its scalability (thanks to open source code, among other things), integration with ERP or CMS/CRM systems. On the plus side, there is a high level of security (e.g. through dedicated site IP), which does not change the fact that today this is the standard adopted by all IT service providers.
What is most often not talked about is that, if you are successful in the market in terms of sales of various products or services and you manage - literally - a technology combo, very often you have to use dedicated employees from the IT department. Who take the fight to the specialists who are delegated by the support of the chosen SaaS and then you pay twice for each service. If you don't have the technical expertise, often even more.
