There are two types of ecommerce web developers available in the market. One who just follow your requirements and do the ecommerce web development to earn money from your web project on fixed cost or hourly basis without using their past experience to suggest you the best solutions or thinking anything out of the box to serve you the best. Believe me they will not ask you too many questions to go deep into the solutions you are looking for or they will not try to understand nature of your business. They will not think whether the solution they are building for you is technically suitable or not. They just do it since you pay them for the work. This may sound right to some of the people but i bet – you will not get best ROI if you hire this type of web developers.
And second type of magento ecommerce experts who will use their years of experience to build the best solutions possible by suggesting various features/functionalities that they have implemented in the past and that have created wonders for their other customers. they analyse your requirements in deep and come back to you with their thoughts like…Hey XYZ, look this feature mentioned on your requirements doesn’t sound perfect from user experience point and they will provide few other examples of the best similar features that they have created or any of your competitors might have on their website that can be best for your end customers. Take a note, this type of web developers will ask you many questions that will help them to understand nature of your business and identify your pain points that they can solve using their years of experience.
