An overview of how to create an e-commerce site

The growth of e-commerce: an opportunity to be seized now!

E-commerce is continuing to expand like crazy. In France, it accounts for over 15% of retail trade, and is set to exceed 25% before 2025. From small businesses to large groups and public bodies, the question is no longer whether to go online, but how and when? Setting up an e-commerce site is an important step in the life of a company. Much more than just creating a website, setting up an e-commerce project is a fully-fledged corporate project that will involve all departments at some point.

The creation of an e-commerce site follows a similar methodology to that of a traditional website, after having dealt with the commercial, logistical and organisational aspects.

The security of the platform is crucial, both to reassure customers and to ensure that it runs smoothly. A data leak can have far-reaching effects.
