Magento Apparel and Accessories website
Magento is perhaps the most popular ecommerce platform of choice for larger websites. You can do pretty much anything in Magento, from a simple ecommerce site to a mid range ecommerce site with lots of products variations in size, color, and other variables to large websites with tens of thousands of products, upload feeds, downloads feeds to multi-vendor marketplaces – Magento can handle it all.
Like most open source software, the core Magento platform is free. However; many add-on modules called extensions have to be paid for.
Magento is popular all over the world, from Dallas, Texas, USA to Sydney, Australia to Shanghai, China.
Magento is not for everyone though. It is a very large complex software, requires at least a VPS or better server and requires developers with enhanced skills to manage it. If you are just starting out in the world of ecommerce or only have a few hundred products, then Magento would be an overkill for you. Talk to your developer and he will find you an alternate solution.
Being a popular ecommerce platform, there are lots of premium (paid for) extensions for Magento. That means you can pretty much do anything in Magento. If your requirements are very unique that cannot be met by an off the shelf extension, then developers like InterloperInc.com can build you custom extensions.

There are merchants who want to improve their websites and their user experience but don’t have the skills in-house to make the necessary changes. It’s hard to find Magento developers and they are expensive at $80 to $100/hour even if you do get lucky. Paying them that kind of salary on an on-going basis may be more than your business can justify. What to do? When a job goes unfilled, projects get delayed. Delays cost you money and lost opportunities.
That’s where we at Interloper, Inc. come in handy. You can hire us at a fraction of the price and we don’t have to be on your payroll for ever. We provide you the resources you need. You still remain in charge and in control – you get your job done at a lower cost and on time. Accolades and a leg up over your competition may follow.
Sometimes you may look at competitors websites and they look beautiful and generate more business. You wish your website looked that good and delivered results. You can have an even better looking site given the right talent.
Generally we first assign you one of our creative designers who works with you to put together a design that reflects your vision for your website, looks elegant and professional and most importantly meets the expectations of the type of customers you are trying to attract. After that, we hand it over to our developers to integrate the design into the backend and incorporate all the necessary functionalities.
Growth pattern of US ecommerce sales
So is your Magento website delivering?
You have good products, you have competitive prices yet you are not selling much. Why? Either you have no traffic or your website stinks.
Ecommerce sales are projected to grow to 434.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2017. Will you be able to capture your share of it?
You would agree that most websites look like cookie cutter templates – right? Then why do people keep doing it? Maybe they don’t know any better. Maybe they think it’s expensive to have an elegant design. What’s expensive is all those lost customers who come to your website and quickly click away.
