Ecommerce Software Development
Ecommerce software development addresses the demand for a digital presence from global manufacturing, distribution and retail businesses, and provides a digital user interface and an underlying IT ecosystem in order to enable ecommerce operations.
Since 2003, ScienceSoft offers comprehensive ecommerce software development services. Our approach relies on a diligent analysis of a customer’s needs, business model and existing technology stack. This allows us to decide on the best-suited development strategy – platform-based, headless or microservices-based ecommerce development, then build and implement an ecommerce software solution geared towards proper integrity with existing business operations.

Platform-based ecommerce development
A customized ecommerce solution developed on top of the functional capabilities packed into a suitable ecommerce platform. At ScienceSoft, we work with enterprise-level ecommerce platforms targeted at large-scale businesses.
- Quick time to market and return on investment.
- Customization flexibility to meet business-specific requirements.
May impose a limitation:
- Regular platform updates up to newly released versions and security patching is required.
Headless ecommerce development
An ecommerce platform is used only as a back-end engine, the front end is custom-designed.
- Full freedom to design user behavior logic and visual presentation for a website.
- Possibility to use modern front-end tooling to speed up the development process and achieve a desired level of interactivity.
- More content management possibilities.
- Best for multi-category product catalogs allowing for autonomy in category presentation.
May impose a limitation:
- Time to market may be slow as the front-end presentation must be built from scratch.
Microservices-based ecommerce development
A cluster of microservices makes up an ecommerce solution. Each microservice is arranged around the required functional capabilities, deployed and managed separately.
- The highest flexibility in ecommerce solution conceptualization.
- Applicable to any kind of a business model.
- Highly scalable at peak traffic loads.
- The failure of individual microservices doesn’t interrupt the whole solution.
May impose a limitation:
- High investment for the launch is needed.
