When it comes to eCommerce website development, options are endless. The challenge is choosing the best among them and creating something exceptional. Here comes Laravel, the lightweight, efficient and flexible PHP framework that has taken eCommerce development to a new level. But how is this achieved and why choose Laravel for an eCommerce website? The details are underway.
Laravel is a free and open-source framework that uses the modern principles of object-oriented programming (OOP) and the model-view-controller (MVC) pattern.
Clean code, detailed and helpful documentation, great community support, built-in libraries, and several other things make it a dream for developers and a delight for customers. Among them — the happy owners of Laravel online stores enjoy the following.
Unique Feature Development: No Strings Attached, No Frames Imposed
Laravel gives developers an unbeaten level of freedom in developing absolutely unique Commerce websites with no restrictions whatsoever. After all, your exceptional business deserves an exceptional website!
Unprecedented Site Security
Managing an online store, especially the payments isn’t a cakewalk. It is, rather, a huge responsibility. Your customers’ money and data is something that cannot be risked. However, Laravel incredibly takes care of website security. It has native protection against cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and SQL injection so that your database is always intact. Further, it helps in easy creation of user authentication, password hashing and restricted access features.
Enhanced Store Performance
Popular for performance optimization, Laravel makes sure your customers have smooth and fast browsing - which is mandatory in today’s competitive era.
It comes with commendable support for cache backends like Memcached and Redis, and gives developers extra options for caching configuration. Further, database indexing, memory use reduction and other speed optimization techniques are also easy with Laravel.
Last but not least, its MVC pattern provides perfect separation between the logic and the presentation, hence enhancing the overall performance.
Seamless Third-party Integration
Needless to say, your eCommerce store has to have third-party integrations. Well, Laravel framework offers clean APIs to integrate with payment systems like Stripe, Braintree, PayPal or Blockchain Wallet API. Besides this, it also makes way for diverse marketing and analytics tools in a snap.
The best part: With Laravel certified developers, a part of the massive Laravel community, any type of third-party system can be easily integrated
