10. Third-party integrations
When creating a custom e-commerce website, you will need some third-party services. At least,
you should make the integration with a payment gateway, for example, Stripe, PayPal, or
Braintree that will process electronic transactions and protect payment data.
There are many 3rd party integrations that you can leverage on the web platform. For example,
you can connect Twilio, a cloud communications platform that enables businesses to interact with
customers via emails, text messages, phone calls, AI-based chatbots, and other ways.
We also recommend you to use Google Analytics that allows tracking and analyzing user behavior
in real-time. Google Analytics gives information on the number of site visitors for different
periods, cities, and countries, bounce rate, the length of sessions, user age, etc.
Time: 16 hours per one third-party service (on average); we will count 2
third-party services for the cost of an e-commerce website, which is 32 hours.
