    Hi everyone,

    I currently have a client who is humming harring over whether to go for a full bespoke E-Commerce site, where I create it and he can update it etc. Or, a monthly subscription service such as Shopify, where he has no massive initial outlay and can keep it looking half decent with little effort.

    Does anyone have experience with any services such as Shopify etc that they could share with me? I've used Shopify myself once before, and found it nice and easy to use, yet not fully customisable and wondered what others had to say on this kind of service?

    I'm obviously trying to convince him to go for a full e-commerce bespoke solution as I feel that's the best option for his business.

    When you say bespoke do you actually mean coded from scratch or do you mean a configured package? Just curious..

    I mean like using the basic Magento/OpenCart blank template and building it from there.

    Cool - I just remember 5 years ago when dev companies would ACTUALLY try and do it from scratch :)
    Sorry I can't add experience of Shopify and like you would like to know mileage people have got from it.

    I can't imagine trying to do it from scratch to be honest. That'd be a nightmare.
