Online stores and ecommerce trade are at an all-time high, with digital buyers standing above 2.14 billion in 2021. That equates to a whopping one in every four people being an online shopper. With so much online commercial movement, internet penetration has expanded across the world, with users turning to online purchasing for a more convenient and cost-efficient way to shop.

What are ecommerce plugins?

Plugins are software tools that expand the capabilities of a website, without the need to enter an edited code or manual entries (saves you a few pennies on getting a degree in coding!). Merchants who have cultivated an online business have the capability to partner with bundled services, via plugins, to simplify the selling of products on their website. By ‘plugging in’ these additional softwares, website functionality can be enhanced with a range of elements from social media and SEO, to spam monitoring and security.

Merchant’s trying to learn coding be like

In essence, the digital world is swamped with competition and so a key differentiator is user experience. The contribution of a plugin primarily increase the productivity and efficiency of the ecommerce business.

These are add-ons for a website that add advanced e-commerce features without an essential need for coding. Merchants have the option to mold the features with small code changes, which effectively personalise the service to business need. So it’s a tool for non-tech people that need to process payments on their websites. Business owners need those plugins to be able to work with payment service companies like ourselves. Currently Unlimint is integrated with Magento and WooCommerce, Opencart and Vtex, among others. So, any business that uses any of those two plugins, could potentially work with us.

Why do merchants need them?

Merchants have a skill for business, and so partnering with fintech innovators, like Unlimint, allows merchants to continue what they do best without additional stress. Plugins are required to integrate services from other providers onto a website, and speed up the process with fast integrations. Ecommerce plugins hold a particular value, giving merchants superior support and access to forward thinking innovations. Whether you’re selling t-shirts or electronic files, businesses can be running more comprehensively within a matter of minutes thanks to plugin technology.

In 2021 we saw a 4.4% year-on-year increase of online shoppers, compared to 2020. Whilst this sounds monumental, it is less surprising when you consider the convenience of online shopping and increasing internet connectivity across the world. And with the rising trend of online shopping events, such as Black Friday, Singles’ Day, and Cyber Monday, the need for a safe and seamless online experience is non-negotiable. Ecommerce plugins allow even the newest businesses to hop onto ecommerce trends, and bring a variety of benefits, including:

  • Dynamic payment methods:- expanding into new markets and increasing conversion by accepting numerous local payment methods globally
  • Open source:- access to website enhancements that allow data collection and user traffic. So online shopping can become more targeted to specific requirements
