what is the features and advantages of Magento

Recommended Posts

I personally like magento because of its strong features like

unlimited themes

store creation on few clicks

impressive ordering options

good browse options with social media built in integration

and lot more

 

I i prefer wordpress system for developing an ecommerce site due to its flexibility and customization options. If you have plan to upgrade your site in future by adding more features (related or non related to ecommerce) then wp is a prefect option.

Pros:

 

  • Lots of features
  • Can do everything you'd ever want ecommerce wise
  • Good for large catalogues with very complex products
  • Active community

 

Cons:

  • DEFINATELY not suitable for every type of client and the software is complex for none technical users
  • Whatever people say on this forum, not every client will spend a few minutes looking at the admin area and immediately find it intuitive to use - granted, some may, but not everyone will - get a good grip on the type and level of client you're dealing with.
  • You'll have to support a very complex and involved product - do you have the knowledge/experience/time to do this?
  • Requires a VDS as a minimum - don't even bother with shared hosting
  • Has a higher entry point to develop in it - need to be an MVC ninja and to appreciate the Zend framework
  • Overkill for most ecommerce stores
  • I still think some of the plugins are massively over priced
  • Lots of SEO issues out of the box if not unchecked - even silly basic things like getting the shopping cart/login screens/wishlist etc. pages indexed by Google. There are others too - plugins are required to fix these
  • Magento developers come at a premium - they are cheap

Problem is WordPress isn't an ecommerce platform, Magento is.

 

Magento blows WPEC out of the water in every possible way... well, aside from hosting requirements.
