Here is an overview of the market of ecommerce platforms and the most preferred online stores in 2017! Read this article and discover everything!

Once you start looking for ecommerce platforms you will notice that there are many ecommerce platforms available, which makes it pretty difficult to pick the right one. Since the studies from last year, a lot of things have changed. Several e-commerce platforms made their way up in the market, while others lost their precious positions.

In order to decide, we are going to present you an overview of the current market of e-commerce solutions and the most preferred online stores for this year.

The current findings are based on the information provided by BuiltWith. BuiltWith analyzes the ecommerce market and provides the users with the newest statistical reports related to this field. The overview includes the most popular and used online platforms.

For now, the leading position on the market belongs to WooCommerce. Magento is the second winner. After a long struggle with Magento, WooCommerce managed to defeat and take the first winning place. The possible reason why WooCommerce is the ultimate winner is the fact that this platform is free of charge. It significantly succeeds all other ecommerce solutions by the number of installations.

The other popular ecommerce platforms for 2017 are Oracle ATG Commerce, Shopify, Demandware, IBM Web Sphere, Hybris, Klosked, osCommerce, Ubercart, and etc.

As we said, Magento is slightly behind the first winner, meaning it still has all chances to lead the market and take the ultimate position among the best and most popular ecommerce solutions. By using perfect usability and broad functionality, Magento remains the ideal solution for a lot of online businesses and individuals all over the world.

Oracle ATG Commerce is slightly behind Magento. This e-commerce solution offers amazing market reach opportunities for B2B and B2B (one web server for several stores, omnichannel commerce features, dividing customers into target groups, and etc.)

Shopify and DemandWare take the 4th and the 5th place in the list. Both platforms have great features, however, they aren’t suitable for any type of business. For example, Demandware does not give e-commerce businesses the freedom they need as they want to control everything. Shopify, on the other side, allows merchants and small businesses to start fast, but they are cloud solution, meaning it does not provide any opportunities for code changes. Both platforms are great and they are constantly updated and supported, meaning their popularity and usage among the other stores may significantly grow.

IBM WEB Sphere Commerce is right behind these top 5 choices. This is a great platform that offers a broad functionality for online activities such as trigger scenarios, targeting offers, embedded adaptive web stores, and etc. When compared to other equally effective ecommerce solutions, this platform is a little bit expensive.

Hybrid is right after IBM WEB Sphere Commerce. This platform has a huge set of features and is great for creating highly loaded online stores. The only problem is that sometimes it can be difficult to work with this platform. You can open their official website and check out their offers.

Klosked is known as not so friendly to people or businesses who are using it and maybe this is the reason why it is slightly behind others.

OsCommerce and UberCart take the two last positions from the list. OsCommerce is known as a resource-intensive platform which means that it increases the demands for hosting. The interface of Ubercart is a little bit outdated and seem like the platform hasn’t been improved recently.

In a conclusion, we are going to say that WooCommerce, Magento, and Shopify are without a doubt the leaders of the market of ecommerce platforms.
