What our customers say 

"There were a lot of features that attracted us to Mintsoft, but the main draw for us was the amount of shopping cart integrations that the system works with. It was a strong and impressive portfolio in comparison to the other systems we’ve previously used or were looking at implementing."

What is eCommerce software?

Ecommerce fulfilment software is software that helps retailers and online businesses to sell goods and services online. It provides a platform where they can design their own website, process orders, manage inventory and payments, and make use of social media. It helps run businesses across multiple channels.


It’s a global phenomenon that has been gaining momentum in recent years. The E-commerce industry is expected to grow at a rate of 8.7% annually and reach $4.5 trillion by 2020 according to Forbes. Software is at the heart of the E-commerce revolution and so software tools exist for all parts of the process so E-commerce management software might pertain to any number of functions however primarily when people speak of Ecom software it is usually regarding fulfilment and so it is here that we shall focus our attention.


One thing all Ecom software has in common is the desire to increase speed and efficiency, automate repetitive tasks, increase accuracy and confidence, and integrate into your existing tech stack. There is usually overlap between what different software can offer a business and no one product does it all so integrations are usually a key feature.

Platform types

At the uppermost level there are three main types of E-commerce platforms although this is not usually the main consideration when appraising offers:

  • Open-source platforms

Created and maintained by a community where the software is released at no charge, but with no guarantee of support or development. Linux is the most famous example of open-source software but some customers may actually prefer to pay for one of the below types of software in return for peace of mind and security.

  • Proprietary platforms

These refer to some code that a company has made and does not release to the general public, also known as closed source software, and has been the historical norm. Quite often large companies will make this for themselves to career to their specific needs however there are large costs involved.

  • Hosted platforms

This just means that the code runs in the cloud and members just pay to access it - no downloading, installing, configuring, or updating. When compared to the above types it generally refers to more consumer-level users who like the flexibility and outsourcing of technical capability to a provider that is as easy to use as visiting a website. Mintsoft is a hosted platform and is confidently the best choice for most SME’s and also often large companies.

  • Which industry do you operate in?

Some industry verticals may not need expensive software because they don't require as much customization or they may need specific functionality such as overseas order management and translation.

FAQs

E-commerce software recommendations

When people think of E-commerce software they usually think first of the programs that allow you to list your wares on a website. From there you need to offer a checkout that will be linked to a payment processor. Next, we can tie this transaction up to accountancy software and send the order to the warehouse with inventory management software which will update the stock levels and make any automations as directed (such as re-ordering supplies at certain stock levels)

The first recommendation to get started on this journey is BigCommerce. This platform has a great user interface, good customer service, and solid security features. The other platform is Shopify which specializes in mobile-ready websites for an affordable price. Both are well catered to in Mintsoft so you can have confidence that our E-commerce software will work with their E-commerce software!
