If you have a genuine love of fashion, launching your online clothing store is a great way to become your own boss.

However when it comes to providing your customers with a seamless and secure shopping experience, which ecommerce platform do you choose?

To help you make your decision, let’s take a look at our top 5 ecommerce platforms for your online fashion store.

1. Shopify

Shopify is one of the top ecommerce platforms in the world. Founded in 2006, Shopify now powers over 100,000 online retailers. From start-ups to large ecommerce organisations, the straightforward platform can be as powerful and scalable as your ecommerce business needs it to be.

3. Big Commerce

A favourite of small to medium sized online retailers, Big Commerce was founded in 2009 and can be easily configured in only a few hours. This means even if you don’t have much experience setting up an online fashion store, you can be up and running within in a very short period of time.

Furthermore Big Commerce is used by over 50,000 online stores, and as it’s easy to customise, an experienced website developer can create a really exciting customer journey and shopping cart experience.

4. Magento

Magento was founded in 2005 and is very popular ecommerce platform amongst large online retailers including Mothercare and Nike.

An open source system, the Magento platform can be customised in line with an online retailers preferred customer journey, however this does mean that due to the amount of expert coding required, you will need to source the services of a professional website design team or agency.

5. Volusion
