OpenCart Web Designers
Using web designers to design your website is highly important if you want to make it as effective as possible. This is especially true if you are using OpenCart. OpenCart is an open source PHP e-commerce solution. In other words it is the framework for many shopping websites and this allows you to have customers using your website to purchase items and add their to their carts, pay online etc.
OpenCart is useful because it means that you do not have to build a whole shopping cart system from scratch. This means that you can get OpenCart web design at a much cheaper rate than you could if you asked someone to program you a shopping cart for free. Meanwhile OpenCart also has other benefits – because it is open source for instance and it means that your visitors are likely to have encountered it before. Although the OpenCart system is customizable and your web designers will change it to fit the style of your site, your visitors will still be reassured by the familiar feel and set up and they will then be more likely to buy. If a customer struggles to work out your shopping cart then you will often lose them and their custom. Likewise OpenCart has been tried and tested – many websites have been very successful using this form of shopping cart and that means that you can guarantee that it's possible for you to be as well. It also gives you the confidence to tweak other things other than the shopping cart – as you know that that's not the problem. Finally it is known that OpenCart is safe and reliable and meets PCI standards so you will be able to take card without worrying about losing the person's details.
You should still use web designers however, as it will be their job to make sure that the software fits nicely and logically into your site. You do not want the OpenCart aspect to look out of place or to be unintuitive to use because of the rest of the site. The way that the shopping cart looks and feels can get you a lot more custom or lose you it, so it's an important investment to get professional web design. Also you will still need to use programming in order to set up the system so that it works on your page – just because it's open source does not mean it's simple and it takes a good programmer to change it to suit your needs without getting it wrong.
OpenCart is written in PHP. This is a form of programming language that runs on the server rather than on the individual's computer. This makes it hard to test, but at the same time it is also highly complex. PHP works through being able to edit its own files and this makes it very complex to follow a program, meaning it is definitely best left to the experts.
