Content Executive’s Ecommerce shopping carts have been designed for modularity. You're not limited to a fixed set of features. Rather, we deliver exactly what you need for your business. Shrink-wrapped, closed-source, and hosted solutions can't match the level of customization that's possible with Magento or Open Cart. These solutions can accommodate complex business rules and functionalities, including non-standard checkouts, huge inventories, complex promotions, or almost anything you could dream up. Yes, anything is possible.

Stop Thinking Ecommerce and Think Online Business!
- Uniqueness: Content Executive's shopping carts have uniqueness and can be customizable. Most ready-hosted Ecommerce websites have three columns, forced registration, and a floating right-side cart. Checkout logic is the same for every user on most hosted platforms. In other words, it's not tailored to your particular business or shopper. It hurts your brand to look like everyone else. Visitors forget you and the logical flow may not fit the way you do business. This is where we come in and tailor your solution to fit your needs.
- Flexibility: As your business grows, a ready-hosted Ecommerce service may not add the features you need to grow your business to the next level. You may have little or no control over future development or upgrades. This is why, Content Executive provides one of two different Open Source solutions. At your project's completion, you'll have full access and rights to the source code. In other words, you won't be stuck and you can control future development.
- Have Business Control: If you lack the source code for your Ecommerce website, and your web developer goes bust or changes ownership, you're stuck. In the worst case scenario, you'd have to start over from scratch. That's never the case with Content Executive since you receive full rights to the source code at the project's conclusion.
- Hosting and Server Flexibility: Because Content Executive uses Open Source platforms, we can customize your web hosting on a scale that is suitable for your fast growing online business. As your traffic grows, we can upgrade your hosting. Your website isn't stuck on a shared solution, we have semi-dedicated and dedicated servers that you can scale to as your store grows. We are the one stop shop for your web solution. We have a dedicated team for your hosting requirements.
"Don't make me think..." The essence of usability can be summed up in Steve Krug's famous phrase: Don't Make Me Think (a Web-industry standard text).
Remove possible frustrations: Visitors don't have time to figure out your website. Make it obvious and easy or they'll leave. For example: why insist that phone numbers can't have dashes? A usable site doesn't set up unnecessary roadblocks that risk overloading the frustration factor.
Design starts with user goals: Some Ecommerce sites sell digital downloads. Others sell tangible goods. Some require recurring billing. Each has a different logic flow, which must be supported by design to achieve a high conversion rate (good sales).
Consistency, labeling, color logic, layout, design emphasis, and branding should all guide and support user actions, so the sale or signup is most likely to be completed. In short: template websites don't move merchandise
