Top 10 Ecommerce Platforms of 2016ankushmahajan Today, starting an online store is not that difficult but choosing an ecommerce platform among a list of platforms is a daunting task. Year-by-year, the advancement in the ecommerce technology & the rising competition among online stores have raised the expectations that people have around ecommerce platforms. Today, it's not enough just offering easy setup, some level of customization, and the inclusion of standard features. Mobile friendliness, social media integration, good user experience, search engine optimization, modules for content marketing and customer support have become a fundamental need of an online store today.
So considering these factors I have created the list of top ecommerce platforms at per current ecommerce market trends and needs:
The Top Ten
Prestashop is another popular and cost-effective open source ecommerce platform. Here are some of the impressive features Prestashop has to offer:
Available in 40 languages
Vast selection of customizable ecommerce themes
Quick install features
Powerful set of integration's
Prestashop does not support multi-store feature nor have any official customer support team. - ankushmahajan
I will say emerging ecommerce platform and making its market effectively. YoKart takes the startup initiative seriously and here are some of its features that make its stand out among best platforms:
1 Year Free Technical Support
Has both the features of hosted and self hosted platforms
Fully Responsive Design Website
Intuitive Interface and SEO Friendly
YoKart doesn't offer much templates and plugin and here you have to bit compromise. - ankushmahajan
A well known e-commerce platform that comes with built-in theme editor, which makes it easy to customize the design of a shopping website without meddling with the code. In addition to these, it offers the following:
200+ Beautiful Storefront Themes
Built-in Content Management
50+ Payment Systems

The basic package is free, but features are limited. You need to take a separate package that costs around $1450 to start a multivendor store. - ankushmahajan

An expert X-cart developer is needed in installing the shopping cart, as well as, including your website graphics and company logo. - ankushmahajan
Volusion is one of the earliest ecommerce builders, which is a hosted ecommerce solution like Shopify.
Here are features that make volusion stand among the best ecommerce platforms:
Quick and Cost-Effective Store Setup
More front-end features at relatively lower cost
Good loading speed even with large database
24/7 customer support
Volusion doesn’t have an App store, therefore, expanding capabilities of your online store is a bit of a challenge. Lacks custom pages and built-in blogging solution is also its drawback - ankushmahajan
