Magento

3.6
(32)

Magento is established as the global market leader for online retailers, commanding a whopping 20% of the total eCommerce marketplace, and it now supports over 250,000 businesses with its platform – in comparison, the closest rival has just 11% market share. Aside from leading the pack, it’s fully customisable appearance and functionality make it ideal for almost any business. With regular updates and a huge support community, Magento is head and shoulders above any other eCommerce platform in our opinion.

"Magento Is Great If Pick A Template And Are Technically Inclined"

What do you like best?

It's easy to setup a complete working online store if you have some technical ability and if you use a temple right from the start. The documentation is organized in a structured way that's easy to find the topic you are looking for.

What do you dislike?

Magento has a of technical errors and is very high -maintenance. For example, if you add a lot of products into your online store, you have to reindex it. Most of the other modern shopping cart technologies don't usually have this need, and often allow you to load an unlimited amount of products ,without ever slowing anything down, or ever needing "reindexing".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Magento 1 seemed to have more support and a better following then Magento 2 in the Freelance community. Some Magento 2 stores seem to have greater technical challenges with less solutions that are even more difficult to resolve then Magento 1. These comments are based on the free versions of both Magento 1 and Magento 2.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bricks and mortar locations with internet expansion have limited potential. Magento enables online purchasing and makes it quick and easy, especially if you have some technical experience.

""Great for big and small businesses""

We use magento for our site needs. We've been utilizing it for a couple of years now yet most as of late structure our new site. It's been very useful setting up the checkout procedure for the books we sell on the web.

What do you dislike?

Now and then it very well may be difficult to utilize and alter certain highlights and get it to for example work with Wordpress.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Magento is exceedingly reasonable for a wide range of online business stages. Anyway it ought to be acknowledged by individuals that it requires outsider impedance and is hard to set up. Anyway once set up it tends to be effective in the event that you can manage the cost of it.

With Magento, we had the capacity to expand our income streams by adding an internet business store to our site. This enabled us to grow our business from administrations as well as to administrations and products.

What do you like best?

Adobe magneto has a free version available for its users. It has efficient marketing tools and site management features. It is optimized for all operating systems, mobile devices and tablets. It also provides newsletter management. It also helps manage a large traffic and numerous sales.

What do you dislike?

The free version has limited features and the online buying prices are very hefty. The themes and designs are not offered by the website itself and may require third party interference.

Adobe management is highly suitable for all kinds of e-commerce platforms. However it should be realized by people that it requires third party interference and is very difficult to set up. However once set up it can be very efficient if you can afford it.

"the best in terms of virtual stores"

the best in terms of virtual stores.Our virtual stores today use magento as their main base and in the marketing, sales and SEO part, this platform is the best, with all possibilities of multi-function integrations and access controls for each use, part of sales and clients are well organized and easy to access

"Magento is alright for starters"

What do you like best?

Magento definitely gets the job done, no doubt about that. There's a lot of in-depth details, you can even manage your newsletter subscribers from there and do a lot through various extensions.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, Magento's inventory system is horrible. Can't express this enough. Our company has done manual inventory to try and override this, and even though we turn Magento's inventory off, it finds a way to turn itself back on and undo all the hard work we've done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend making sure your inventory is correct before you leave the office, especially if you work at a place where you are off on weekends. If your inventory is not correct, you will come in on Monday to a lot of customer issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use magento to take customer orders, which is crucial to our business. Without it, we wouldn't have an e-commerce platform.

"Organized Ecommerce"

What do you like best?

I like that this is free open source e-commerce software that i am able to install on my website. It makes selling products on my website easy, without having to spend an arm and a leg on it.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the learning curve that comes with magento, since it is a cms, it is quite hard to manage and set it up alone. I had to get a 3rd party to set it up for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you plan on setting this up yourself, I would recommend having patience as it is a headache to get it running smoothly. I would also suggest getting a dedicated server to run your store on, if there are a lot of visitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Magento, we were able to increase our revenue streams by adding an ecommerce store to our website. This allowed us to expand our business from not just services but to services and goods.

"Magento for eCommerce"

What do you like best?

It is free and open source. Magento comes with a lot of in-built eCommerce features. It is regularly updated and thanks to its wide base of users, support is readily available via the Magento centered forums.

What do you dislike?

Magento tends to be very bulky and consumes lots of server resources. An in-house developer may be needed in order to fully utilize its functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Magento is a great platform to use. However, as an advice to those considering acquiring it, an in-house developer would really come in handy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has allowed us to implement our eCommerce business without a lot of difficulties.

"Magento is king of the open source realm."

What do you like best?

With Magento, your options are endless. It has the capability of delivering a very large catalog of products while including much of what’s needed to funtion as an online store. If you have a special requirement, it can be customized to accomodate you. The community has grown large so there are massive amounts of resources available online.

What do you dislike?

Further development can turn out to be costly if there isn’t already something that fits your needs. Most Magento stores will need high end dedicated hosting, optimized specifically for Magento. If not configured correctly, it’s unfortunately often labeled as “slow.”

Recommendations to others considering the product

The only unknown here is Adobe’s recent aquisition. The likelyhood of Magento’s continued success is high, but who knows?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Magento gives us an online presence for our physical locations allowing us to reach all over the world.

"Nice software with minimal issues"

What do you like best?

The interface is appealing and user-friendly - everything you need to be able to customize is something you can edit or change using the software. It seems that there are a lot more features than what my company was utilizing at the time.

What do you dislike?

Some glitches occur, such as needing to do the same action twice for it to appear changed and then go back to fix it when it changed twice. Also, it is hard to translate information from Magento to other software we use. I'm unsure whether this is due to compatibility of Magento or the other software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize more of its features rather than one or two if possible. It's hard to translate info from Magento to other software and vice versa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making inventory changes and editing product descriptions was made very easy . Very helpful in clearing up confusion about which items are still being sold on the website and which are out of date. Filling out description info made it much easier to translate over to the website team, and allowed us to give feedback to the web team on making improvements.

"Magento takes alot from you"

What do you like best?

Like the diversity of magento, you can almost do everything you need within the cms and anything you need and be added through coding.

What do you dislike?

Slows down alot after alot of product input, larger hosting is need which adds the cost of getting up and running for larger sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand what your site needs and if magento is your best solution. Can be confusing to the entry level developer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a custom seat company, everything is custom, theme design, getting magento to work the best with your product. Benefits is magento is now one of the largest ecommerce cms and alot of help from developers that have faced the same problems.
