Hosted vs. Self-Hosted Carts

This week, Bill D’Alessandro is back on the show to demonstrate his eCommerce prowess, by diving into the pros and cons of hosted and self-hosted carts. We discuss topics like carts we have used in the past, the perks and downsides to each one and the questions we believe every eCommerce owner needs to ask before choosing. We also give examples of our own past successes and failures with each cart.

On this week’s episode, we draw upon our combined experiences of both hosted and self-hosted shopping carts with our different stores to help you determine which option is the best for you. You don’t want to miss this episode’s time-saving breakdown of everything related to e-carts to help you determine the right option for you and your business.
