Magento


Magento Commerce is the number 1 platform that provides innovations in terms of open omnichannel. It provides a viable e-commerce platform for retailers looking to implement a pleasant shopping experience, either physical or online.

Advantages

  • Free to use - users are offered a plethora of free-of-charge features built-in the Community Edittion of the service.
  • Scalable - due to the fact that the platform was developed in PHP, it has support for new features added by users.
  • The developer community is growing on a regular basis, becoming larger by the day.
  • Customizable
  • Mobile friendly
  • Wide range of functionalities

Disadvantages

  • It's difficult for beginners - just as the majority of the systems which are highly capable and and allow a lot of customizing, Magento can be a headache if you don't have experience with this sort of software.
  • Cost - Magento Community Edition is available for free, but when it comes to the Enterprise Edition, it has a yearly subscription fee.
  • Hosting fees. Because the platform is rather large, consisting of more than 200,000 files and around 200 database tables, it's recommended to pay for a dedicated hosting server. Of course, you can run the system on shared hosting as well, but you will probably experience a slow performance, directly affecting sales directly.

  • Magento Extensions
  • Language packages - The language package basically represents a series of translation dictionaries for a specific language, along with the information required for Magento to properly process the information. For example:ion is processed. For example: .csv, composer.json and language.xml

  • LAMP/WAMP/XAMPP with X-Debug
