Reply To: Build your own website platform or Pay for an expert? I’m looking to start a business for next summer in the tourism market. I want to have a website that will allow for people to book a time slot and pay (I will need to limit the number of cars that come on the property). I have used Squarespace for my husbands site and could probably work out wix or shopify if I needed to. SO my question is: If I did a DYI site which of the platforms has a good flexible booking capability?OR am I best to go with a local company to build it for me?Cheers A


Nearly always buy over build. You may lack some of the desired functionality/look and feel, but the cost of a) the initial development and b) the subsequent support will many times outweigh the compromises you’ll need to make for an out-of-the-box solution.
