When it comes to buy website clone scripts, I personally would like to check few things about the product & the script provider. Though these steps are not mandatory guidelines but they will give you pretty decent idea of what you should look into when you will buy any clone script.
Check entire script very carefully.
Lots of customer has this experience of receiving something unexpected. When you have the script in demo, you should actually use the script with as much experiment as possible. Once the payment has been done, every required change or feature will be counted as customization. You can always find website design standards from google but self checking is totally different and I can’t put enough weight on this matter.
As multiple clone scripts providers.
Though I am not a man of bargain but you will find pretty decent variety in terms of technology platform, website design & type of features when you will check multiple vendors for the same product type. They will provide you unique features and you will have freedom to choose the right set of functionalities & features.
As for customization cost in advance.
Multiple vendors will have totally different type of custom cost calculations. Off shore companies generally tend to charge decent price once you buy their website clone. I personally would like to know about the customization cost before I choose to buy any product. It will give me sense of their cost pattern which will help me to save something in long run.
Don’t choose a lower package.
You are not going to buy the clone everyday. Don’t try to save few money while leaving lots of features on table. All the website clone script companies have tendency to provide only essential features in the basic version but they are just enough to start a website. To get with the competition, you will require entire set of features which you will not get until you buy the premium package.
Dedicated developers are needed.
Your chosen company should have their dedicated team of developers for your project. If the company can’t provide you serious team of developers, you will not get the priorities for your project. This is pretty straight forward, isn’t it?
