Magento is an open-source e-commerce platform written in PHP. It is one of the most
popular open e-commerce systems in the network. It offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools.
Magento Logo CommonPlaces uses the community-based Magento product for our ecommerce clients. Magento's ability to scale allows shops with only a few products and simple needs to easily expand to tens of thousands of products and complex custom behavior without changing platforms. It offers a variety of plug-ins and themes which can easily enhance a customer's experience. There are a lot of aspects to the online store which need to be configured, and how well that is accomplished is often dependent on business acumen. When it comes to custom functionality, however, that is where more complex programming is required.
An intuitive, visual-based page editor allows shop owners to build and customize their offerings on the fly. The option to toggle a user-friendly WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) content management interface is nice for those code-deficient among us who want to manipulate basic functioning within the shopping cart.
Magento shopping carts are developed responsively, making them seamlessly viewable on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. This accommodates a consumer shopping trend that continues to move toward mobile usage (and that we’ll likely see more of in years to come).
Magento does an excellent job of opening the flow for improved organic traffic. The platform was built with SEO efficiency in mind, giving your products a better chance to appear on Google, Bing, and beyond. There’s also plenty of room for custom SEO implementations for those who have the knowledge and skills to do so.
The Magento platform can support up to 500,000 products on one site, and handle more than 80,000 orders per hour. That means lots of space for future growth between one or more different shopping carts on the same site. Due to its size and complexity, note that Magento has special hosting needs for optimum performance and load speeds. Ensure that you’re prepared for the extra hosting expenses well beforehand
