As always the increasing competition and growing online business had lead companies to try something new to their online stores. To match the competition one has to aim to capitalize upon mobile and social ecommerce trends. Keeping in mind the growing business and trends of ecommerce I have identified the best ecommerce platforms one can use to build their online store.
