What makes Magento the Best eCommerce Platform?

Magento is the world’s leading eCommerce platform, with a market share of over 29 percent. To give you an idea of how popular it is, it run by over 250,000 web stores - including top global brands like Samsung, Ford, Lenovo and Fox Connect. It has been around for a long time and has managed to fend off competition from other platforms like Shopify with ease.

So why is Magento so good? Here are some of the top reasons why it makes the best eCommerce platform for small and big businesses alike:

The Magento Community Edition is open source

This Edition is completely free to download and use. A worldwide community of developers provides regular feature and security upgrades, so you don’t have to pay extra to someone to make your store secure for you. There are paid versions suitable for large organisations too.

Made specifically for eCommerce

Unlike some platforms like WordPress, Magento was always meant to be an eCommerce platform. Consequently, you won’t have to spend any time tweaking its source code or getting rid of features you don’t need. It gives you great functionality right out-of-the-box.

Have as big a store as you want

Some eCommerce platforms charge you more for adding more products to your inventory. You also have to pay a monthly fee for adding new features to your site. That doesn’t happen with this, though.

Choose the host you want

You can find your host if you want. You don’t have to pay the platform developers to host your store for you - some developers make it mandatory and are known as hosted platforms.

Performs well and is Search Engine Friendly

It is responsive (as of Edition 2.0) by default. Stores will run fast across a range of devices, with minimal optimization required. The platform is also very SEO friendly.

If you are planning to make the shift to Magento, make sure you have a customer base that can support the move. You will be able to make an even smoother shift if you manage to hire an experienced magento ecommerce development team for help.
