I am having an ecommerce store built on buildabazaar platform since the past 1.5 yrs. I am looking to upgrade as BAB is very redundant, has a boring frontend and most importantly is not mobile responsive ( which is drastically hitting my business).
Every marketing effort whether thru social media /email is predominantly accessed by the target customer by mobile and when he/she is redirected to the website it is a total disaster on the mobile browser.
Mine is still a startup so cost implications are a major concern. Cannot fathom shelling out more than 30-40k per annum for the whole website service. At the same time I would want a neat interface, backend & with proper security in place.
What would the experts suggest? Self hosted like woo commerce / magento /etc or standard ready to use services like zepo/kartrocket etc.
