But these platforms that are designed to make things easier also come with their share of complications, limitations, and headaches.
There are a lot of e-commerce solutions out there, each with unique strengths and weaknesses. And each farm has its own specific needs. How did you find the platform that works best for you? And if the one you’re using isn’t meeting all of your needs, what factors determine if you should switch to a new one or find a creative solution to work with what you’ve got?
