Ecommerce Software Development

Ecommerce software development - ScienceSoft

Ecommerce software development addresses the demand for a digital presence from global manufacturing, distribution and retail businesses. ScienceSoft chooses among development strategies – platform-based, headless or microservices-based ecommerce development – to build the best-suited ecommerce software.

Get an Ecommerce Solution Supporting Your Unique Business Processes

With an ecommerce solution developed by ScienceSoft, you’ll get:

  • User-centric digital experience designed to engage and convert.
  • An integrated operating model for an omnichannel retail environment.
  • Automated and time-efficient business operations.

Our Services

While business models of different retailers vary, we assess the feasibility of different software development approaches individually to go for an optimal one.

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.

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.

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.

Ecommerce Software Development: Our Featured Projects

What Our Clients Value

We've been collaborating with ScienceSoft for many years now, and it has given us the ability to have stable & consistent support to ensure our Magento site is up-to-date and secure. They are the team who won’t need your careful control – you just outline the task, and they deliver on it with stable quality and speed.

Being in the process of an online marketplace launch, we looked for a consulting partner to help us shape a final product vision with strong competitive advantages. We trusted the experience of ScienceSoft in market entry consulting. The consultant did a great job creating a dynamic UX prototype of our marketplace and planning integrations important for fast and effective business workflows.

With ScienceSoft, we managed to acquire the development resources that we needed and got them fit into our teamwork smoothly. Now that we’ve been working with ScienceSoft for 4 months, we can say that we are no doubt happy with our choice of development partners. The quality they deliver is consistently high. We believe they’ve contributed a lot to speed up our product’s release.
