7 eCommerce Design Trends for 2017

Before starting the list, remember that when building your ecommerce website your focus should be to MEET THE USERS' NEEDS, how simple is to find what they are looking for, fast loading, and a hassle free checkout is the ultimate goal of your store.

Instead of "showing off" what nowadays a browser can do, the passion of your webmaster should be directed to user friendly usability and good functionality of the shopping cart.

Stay away from web design trends that entice you to go "virtual reality" or "eye-catching" animation, for now. 2017 is all about convenience and efficiency.
 

Threads on Zen Cart forums about recommended modules come around very often, but what is most intriguing about them is the wide range of "must-have" modules and the disagreements about what they are.

Since modules (plugins and addons)  inhibit and raise the cost of upgrading, I strongly recommend that you use them only to solve problems or needs that you have on your site, to make your management easier and/or faster; and not because somebody else thinks they're a good idea or solved something for them.

When you are looking to open your online store there are 2 available options.  You could hire a design company and have them build you a site from scratch with shopping cart and all the bells and whistles, or…you could go with the much more attractive option of implementing a ready-to-go ecommerce solution, which you can adapt to your particular needs.

Having a good Zen Cart template design is mandatory if you wish to ensure the success of your online business ventures.  The focus of this article will be to help get you on that path.

It is important to understand that the same principles that apply to traditional marketing will also pertain to those of your Zen Cart Custom Design.
