What is E-commerce Software Development
E-commerce software development refers to the process of creating and maintaining software applications and platforms specifically designed for online retail businesses. This type of software enables businesses to manage various aspects of their online operations, from product listings and inventory management to customer interactions and payment processing.
E-commerce software development by InStandart encompasses the creation of websites, mobile applications, and other digital tools that facilitate online transactions and enhance the overall shopping experience.

Maintaining an outdated Magento solution by InStandart
