Still the best scalable e-commerce platform i've used

2019-04-09

Am surprised that Magento sort of ranks below Joomla, drupal and shopify in current market shares but I would definitely be comfortable with only relying on Magento

Pros

Magento has been around a long time and has many stable patches released, community of forums and help along with long list of extensions/plugins. Magento structure is nice for keeping up and learning MVC. The free community edition is already enough to run full fledge e-commerce site as well as given the option to do multi-stores in the same account. As a developer i did not want a out of the block low-coding to start off with (wordpress/shopify) so its a great tool to keep up with.

Cons

Magento initially always tends to be pretty slow. The admin procedures such as exports, updating, backup, etc all seem a little unstable at times. Understanding your current state and limit of scalability(before improving it some other way) always seems questionable or hard to gauge at first.

E-Commerce Centered CMS

2018-10-05

Pros

Unlike WordPress or Joomla, Magento comes built with core features such as shopping cart, product catalog, and payment processing.

Cons

Template customization would be extremely challenging for a novice web developer as they often involve thousands of lines of code. As such, you probably want to hire a pro to create the final product for your storefront. The back office management side of Magento can be confusing and does demand a decent learning curve especially if this is a users first time using a CMS.
