Evaluating an Ecommerce Provider - Revisited

by Michael Stearns from HEROweb on November 20, 2009

In the Internet business, with rapidly evolving technologies and platforms, many ideas have a short half-life.

I was pleasantly surprised to revisit an article we wrote in 2005: Thirteen Ways to Evaluate an Ecommerce Provide, and to see the article was still relevant.

Ok, maybe the Google Page Rank reference is a little dated. But in hunting through the hundreds of Ecommerce providers, you really need to be able to seek out a company that is going to be able to grow with your business.

What factors do you see as the most important for choosing an Ecommerce vendor to work with?
