Joomla Ecommerce website development combines the award-winning Joomla content management system with a range of innovative and intuitive open-source ecommerce plugins to create a fully customisable, content managed ecommerce website. Joomla ecommerce website development is similar in many ways to WordPress ecommerce website development in that it turns ordinary blogging and content management platforms into sophisticated and customisable online stores.
Joomla is an incredibly popular development platform with business-minded website developers who realise that content managed websites are the way forward for many businesses. In the past year a new range of Joomla eCommerce Extensions and plugins have been released which has enabled Joomla to become an effective all-round business website development solution.
Prior to 2010 Joomla ecommerce development was a slightly niche and specialised form of ecommerce web development which was popular with businesses inside the web-development community. Developers were limited to developing Joomla ecommerce websites with only one all-in-one shopping cart solution – VirtueMart. Ecommerce website development is a rapidly chaning industry however and despite VirtueMart being a tried and tested way of developing Joomla ecommerce sites, Joomla ecommerce web developers were crying out for more innovative and usable development tools. Recent all-in-one shopping cart entrants to the field of Joomla ecommerce development include redShop and Tienda
One of the true benefits of Joomla ecommerce development as a way to create cost-effective, high-performing ecommerce websites is that a number of the Joomla e-Commerce Extensions and plugins are open-source or are free to download and use. Joomla ecommerce websites are also compatible with popular payment methods including PayPal and Google Checkout which further enhances their usability and efficacy as ecommerce businesses.
