To keep up with the standards like Amazon, Snapdeal or Myntra e-commerce retailers are facing a big competition. To have an online store today a good e-commerce platform is a must. The platform should offer features and functionalities incorporating your online store. The most popular and fastest growing platform for an e-commerce website is Magento.
Magento is an OpenSource, e-commerce platform that allows developers to setup an online store by using the plug-ins made by other developers. For a large organization, the enterprise edition follows a licensing model to develop a feature-rich and highly customized Magento e-commerce solution.
Magento team works continuously to improve Magento and to introduce magento2. On November 2, 2015, Magento2.0 is released for the Magento community. Magento Development Company has delighted everyone with its improvements and new features.
Magento comes with inbuilt robust ecommerce solutions that are utilized by the developers to give customized e-commerce websites.
How does Magento beat another big platform?
Let’s start with BigCommerce, in spite of easy setup, its plug-ins are quite difficult to work with and also has third party restrictions. But the framework of Magento is easy to use and has great third party support.
Talking about Shopify, Shopify doesn’t provide extensions and customization options like Magento. And also the templates provided by Shopify are just 200 which are far less than Magento.
The flexibility and customization of XCart are nothing as compared to Magento.
A little research of all the platforms will let you know that each platform has advantages and disadvantages. To choose the right platform for your e-commerce store your vision and purpose of the store should be clear. From startups to large enterprise Magento is the final choice that provides all the requirements of any business.
