Development cost of an eCommerce platform like Carrefour?

Carrefour is a French multinational hypermarket store, one of the most successful one too. Even they have started an eCommerce platform because of the high demand. To Build an e-commerce portal like carrefouruae.com, which covers almost all sectors of retail, from electronics, to clothing to beauty care to grocery- everything! They have several constraints to take care of like logistics, Shipping rules, inventory, tax regulations, etc and to bind all this together, the perfect platform would be Magento. Magento is tailor-made for E-commerce hence it provides all necessary options built-in, it provides a wide range of themes and plug-ins to choose from. Magento is an open-source platform which means we can customize the code to meet our requirements. Although Magento is free to use, some of its plug-ins and themes are paid and the website is self-hosted, meaning we have to purchase a server and host it. Carrefour is a very successful E-commerce platform that runs in UAE and all major countries in the middle east and around the world. The good part of using Magento is that one single admin panel can be used to handle both the website and Mobile Applications.

Why is Carrefour so good?

carrefouruae.com focuses on day to day needs, grocery etc, hence you can find anything and everything in Carrefour for an affordable price and easy search options. Carrefour has products categorized to different categories which are very simple to navigate and adding to cart and they make sure an order is placed with the least number of clicks!

 Some features of Carrefour :

  • Single sign in to Carrefour mobile app, loyalty website and webstore
  • Promotions and best online deals
  • Store locator
  • Shopping lists (Fresh food, Frozen food, Groceries, Personal care, Baby products, Electronics, Smartphones, Appliances, Household and more)
  • Contact us
  • Carrefour Services (MyClub offers, All groceries shopping, CarrefourNow 1-hour delivery)
  • Multi Language (English & Arabic)
  • Multi-country
  • New advanced UI

carrefouruae.com prioritizes their logistics that is the products are dispatched and delivered within the timeframe mentioned at the time of booking hence they also have live tracking and push notification systems to keep the customers updated. Carrefour has various categories of products available from Electronics to Fashion to Home and Kitchen to Beauty to Baby Products to Pet Supplies to Grocery items, Carrefour has everything categorized to proper sections for ease of use. Carrefour has a mobile application which is also very User-friendly and easy to use which also follows the same rules as their website

How easy is it to manage the Mobile Application?

You must be thinking now that, if there is a website and mobile application, it will be hard to manage them both, actually no, it benefits you gaining more audience and attracting your target audience, but the management is simple and is the same if you have a website or website + Mobile application!

The mobile application will be connected to the same admin panel as the website, and any update done on the panel will affect both! It's as simple as that, but of course if you want to have a special promotion for app users, that can be done too. So my suggestion here is, if you have a plan for launching an eCommerce platform, it's better to go for an app also from the start, who doesn't love more?!
