Setting up an e-commerce platform can be 'daunting'

''When reviewing e-commerce software, you should expect some bare necessities like an online admin panel, the ability to customize portions of your storefront, the ability to accommodate one currency, an email account, the ability to sell down-loadable products,'' the site recommends.

However, the news provider adds that the best e-commerce retailers are the ones that go ''above and beyond'' to offer the best customer service.
