Magento is an eCommerce platform built on open source technology. It provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as complete control over the look, content and backend functionality of their online store. Choosing the right eCommerce platform is a critical decision that can influence the success or failure of your business. At the core of the issue are two key considerations. First is the need to deliver an efficient and high-quality user experience that converts casual shoppers into loyal customers. Second is the need for a robust CMS that can support all of your business operations. For some retailers, Magento’s rich features and broad support community are an ideal solution. For smaller businesses, Magento’s features may be too complex and expensive for their needs.
“Magento isn’t for everyone,” says Amit Bhaiya, CEO of DotcomWeavers, “but when it is the right solution, its broad array of features can be game-changing.”

6 Standout Magento Features

  1. Catalog Management: Magento allows for batch uploads of diverse product content in a single import. This can save a lot of time for businesses with hundreds or thousands of products. Dynamic management features also support multiple product categories, comparisons, wish lists, search results, related products and much more.
  2. Flexible Pricing Options: You can hide or easily adjust prices based on business needs. Changes to an item’s base price will not automatically affect fixed tier prices, and the cart can accommodate various pricing paradigms at the same time. It also allows special customer group pricing for VIPs, wholesalers, employees and other groups.
  3. Product Alerts: Magento can send alerts to customers to share new sales or notify them when products are back in stock. This is a simple and powerful way to automate part of your marketing plan.
  4. Multi-store Enabled: eCommerce stores have worldwide reach, so they need to meet the needs of diverse audiences. Magento allows you to create multi-language websites that automatically load unique store views. You can even create separate stores for different industries or product lines.
  5. Custom User Interface: You can alter designs and modify themes based on product categories, which allows for multiple ‘storefronts’ based on a single backend system. This is powerful because it allows for a more relevant and personal user experience, which can increase conversions.
  6. Order Processing Integration: Magento has extensive integration partnerships that provide a host of order fulfillment options. These connect directly to your Magento system and communicate instantly with the partner to update order status, shipping method and tracking info.

Why Magento is not always the right choice

  1. Resource Intensive: Magento is robust and scalable, but this also makes it bulky and resource-hungry. It has heavy server usage needs, higher-than-average operational costs, intensive data input for optimal performance and requires a significant time investment. For a small store, these considerations may be too much to be economical.
  2. Requires Specific Development Skills: Magento’s power means it is a more complex platform than many others. Not all developers or in-house IT will know how to manage it. It is based on Zend Framework, which means you’ll need to find a development company that knows the system. Fortunately, the Magento community is large, so finding a developer is relatively easy. However, the costs associated with such a specific skill set can be a little higher than you bargained for.
To summarize, Magento offers unparalleled flexibility and power for a truly customized eCommerce experience. While this power may be unnecessary or overwhelming for some retailers, for others, it is the perfect solution.
