The best platforms to create an eCommerce

E-commerce platforms are all the rage. Having an online shop can be very costly and a lot of work: managing payments, administering available stock, closing agreements with suppliers, customer databases… For this reason, these platforms offer very interesting advantages when it comes to launching into the digital world.

E-commerce continues to grow in our country. In fact, the crisis derived from the pandemic and the impossibility of accessing premises has encouraged this impulse even more, and nowadays, it is a more than usual solution for those who want to generate extra income or, directly, change their main source of income and set up their own business.

As starting from scratch can seem like an impossible mountain to climb, and not everyone has sufficient knowledge of web development, today we want to bring you a list of the most interesting platforms for creating online shops on the market. Whether it is for its versatility, its price or its possibilities; if it is on this list it is a good option. Try to choose the one that best suits your project.

8 platforms for eCommerce


We begin this list with one of the most used tools in our country and around the world. And, precisely, it is not an independent platform, but a WordPress plugin. It is perfect if you already have a website or some experience with WordPress, because it integrates perfectly.

Beyond the basic aspects of running an online shop, you can also add new features to this plugin through the hundreds of extensions available. It can be difficult to get the most out of WooCommerce, but our guide to creating an online shop in Woocommerce will make it easier.


Another of the most adapted solutions in Spain. It allows you to set up an online shop quickly, with a huge number of functions and an easy-to-use product manager. Other plus points are the payment options and the many customisable pages.

These functions can be improved and extended through themes and plugins, although the basic version already offers very good tools. It has a different feel and functionality to WooCommerce, we can’t say if it’s better or worse, but you’ll have to try them both to decide which one suits you best.


Magento has enormous flexibility compared to all of the above. It is a platform focused on startups, which works well with both small and large shops. It is essential to have some knowledge in web development, as it is not as intuitive and user-friendly as others.

However, if you have your own development team, or you can hire an external professional, this tool is definitely a great option. It has a lot of functionalities and SEO always in mind, so you will be able to take advantage of your online shop more easily to attract customers and generate traffic.


From product performance analysis to various SEO tools, Shopify has put together some of the most important features to become another one of those leading platforms. It is widely used by small businesses just starting out in digital commerce.

One of the big selling points of Shopify is that it allows customers to recover their abandoned carts. When they return to the website, they can finish that purchase they left halfway through, so you’ll lose fewer customers over time. Your most common payment methods are PayPal or Shopify Payments.


Tiendanube has established itself as the undisputed leader in all of Latin America, and is perfect for small and medium-sized businesses as well as larger ones. It has more than 30 customizable themes and can be connected to other online sales channels, such as Facebook Shops or Instagram Shopping.

The first steps on Tiendanube are very easy, and the overall site management is very intuitive and stable. Customers can be offered different payment methods and shipping throughout the region.


Dropshipping is reaching more than interesting shares in the market, and Volusion has managed to evolve to approach this business model. It allows you to find almost any product you are looking for, compare wholesale and retail prices and add it to your shop in just a few steps.

It has a mobile app from which you can manage your inventory or update prices from anywhere. Its analytical tools give you a deeper insight into your eCommerce and allow you to make the best decisions when managing or scaling your online shop.

Zyro eCommerce

It is one of the latest launches on the market, but it has already been proving that it has many solutions for e-commerce. One of its main advantages is that it has a very simple interface for beginners, and in just a few minutes you can have your online shop ready.

It has different themes to choose from and customise, fully adapted to mobile browsing and any other screen. Inventory management is very easy to follow, and you can scale your business if you exceed your initial forecasts.


If you are already established in eCommerce and want to make the leap to a bigger and more powerful tool, try BigCommerce. One of the most interesting features of this platform that closes our list is called Channel Manager, a multichannel sales function that will be able to connect your shop to different marketplaces but with the control of all the inventory on a single page.

Like most of the previous platforms, it includes features focused on SEO and social media, data analysis, custom URLs and many other aids that will help you attract more customers and improve your search engine rankings. You will also be able to incorporate unlimited accounts for your staff.

As you have seen, eCommerce platforms are many and varied. Today we have brought you just a small collection, but you can find many more browsing the net.
