Pros

The ease of deployment is one of the best benefits. You can even auto-install it in most servers.

Yaco L.

Easy to install, the WYSIWYG editor is good for starters and professionals. Joomla is open Source, popular and supported.

Siraj W.

Joomla is a stable solution that has been around for many years and continues to get better and developed by the strong Joomla community.

Pros

Magento is a great and responsive platform which is essential these days when everyone uses mobile devices and recommend it for e-commerce platforms.

JV

Jefferson V.

Magento has a very popular community edition, which is free and open source. It's relatively easy to set up, and have a great feature set.

RC

Renato C.

There are many free and paid extensions to extend the features. It is very easy to write code, so you don't need to hire a programmer to use this CMS for a great customization job.

Cons

This tool was a threat to our profits because of those technical variants. There are so many conflicting help files and out of date tutorials, the tool has become a victim of it's own complexity.

JL

James L.

I dislike that the PayPal plugin for it fails too frequently. I dislike that there's a color change line in the body of the web page for no good reason (light blue to a slightly darker blue).

GT

Gail T.

Compatibility with certain software packages and hardware due to highly possible dishonest and cowardly development protocols from OTHER COMPANIES.

Chad E.

Cons

But all this requires a lot of resources. We needed a terribly expensive hosting in order for the online website to withstand the load.

BH

Brittany H.

Which resulted in an almost abandoned and forgotten open souce version.

I dislike that after signing up for Magento I was bombarded by calls from telemarketers working for them that tried to sell me upgrades and other integrations to the platform.

Best CMS Platform for E-Commerce Websites

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The security is best compared to other CMS platform such as WordPress, Joomla, etc.

Cons

Little complicated to use the CMS as it's little complex. The cost of themes and plugins is expensive. So if user wants to have base minimum application to develop he / she has to shell too much compare to other CMS platforms.

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

Reviewed 3 years ago

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

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Unlike WordPress or Joomla, Magento comes built with core features such as shopping cart, product catalog, and payment processing. Templates allow you to get a site up and running with relative little knowledge of web development provided you at least have the skills needed to setup or deploy to a web server.

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.
