Running an e-commerce platform comes with its own set of challenges, and one of the most daunting is the cost associated with testing. This is where Hoverfly Cloud can be a game-changer, offering a more budget-friendly approach to ensuring your platform runs smoothly.

The Hidden Costs of E-Commerce Testing

When you consider the expenses of API calls, server usage, and even potential penalties for service disruptions, the costs can quickly add up. These are costs that many e-commerce platforms, especially smaller ones, can't afford to ignore.

How API Simulations Save Money

API simulations eliminate the need for expensive live system tests by mimicking third-party services. This not only reduces the cost per API call but also minimizes the risk of hitting rate limits or incurring additional fees.

Cost Comparison: Live Systems vs Simulated APIs

Consider the cost of running 1,000 tests on a live payment gateway, which could cost up to $100. With API simulations, this cost could be reduced to virtually zero, allowing you to allocate those funds to other crucial aspects of your business.

Hoverfly Cloud offers a cost-effective solution for e-commerce platforms looking to optimize their testing processes. By reducing both visible and hidden costs, you can focus on what truly matters: delivering a seamless shopping experience for your customers.
