Customization To The Nth Degree

And recommendations for small to big business.
The Wordpress team have a come a long way since they started as a blog CMS. Now there's huge community support and addons that let you do almost anything. One of the most popular CMS out there. Recommended for small to medium sized businesses.
The Laravel framework is highly optimized and simply awesome to work with for anyone needing a deeply customized and efficient CMS. This is our preferred framework for developing websites that require a CMS. Recommended for small to large business.
WooCommerce is a popular eCommerce platform built on top of the Wordpress CMS. Quick to get started easy to use. You'll need a hosting service provider for this solution - still, it's very cost effective. Recommended for small to medium sized business.
Shopify is another popular eCommerce platform. They are a SaaS (software as a service) which means you'll be paying them a monthly fee based on their three teirs of service but they'll take care of all the updating and hosting themselves (which can be a big time saver). Quick to get started and easy to use for the small business but can be complex and expensive for the larger business once you start customizing via addons. Recommended for small to medium sized business.
Magento started as an open-source eCommerce platform that has grown to offer many options for businesses of all sizes. They still have a community supported feature-rich open source version but their more expensive big-business solutions seem to be their priority these days. Expensive and recommended for large business.
It doesn't get more simple than this. Simply drop in some customized 'add to cart' or 'buy now' buttons into your HTML website and hand off the shopping cart and checkout responsibilities to Mals-E. Cost effective and quick to setup. They offer a free version to get you going or a minimal paid version for more customization and features. Recommend for small businesses on a shoestring budget.
