Syrox E-Commerce Product Comparison

Having something to sell is only the start of it. There are many important features to consider when embarking on an e-commerce website:

  • Choosing and registering a website domain name
  • Selecting a website hosting company
  • Opening a merchant account
  • Arranging for credit card processing

As part of our e-commerce pricing model we commonly refer to either our ‘standard e-commerce functionality’ designed especially for start-ups or our ‘premium e-commerce functionality’ which takes your web-shop to the next level. Both solutions are based on a proven flexible e-commerce engine that can be tailored to suit your requirements.

This comparison chart should help you assess the degree of functionality available at both ends of the spectrum and of course if you have any questions or you have a special project in mind – don’t hesitate to talk to us!


Our standard level websites are developed from a basic framework which offers all the functionality required to get you up and running – perfect for start-up sites!
