Magento has managed to overtake all of the numerous e-commerce solutions available on the market and become the most renowned e-commerce platform in the world. Today, over 150,000 web stores, including those of the big brands, are powered by Magento. According to Google, the “Magento” term is searched more than the “E-commerce” term, meaning that many people use these two terms interchangeably, just like “jeep” for any off road vehicle. So what makes this platform so popular? Let’s find out.
- Being open source. Magento is a free e-commerce platform released under Open Source License 3.0 and built by using PHP and other open source tools. The platform is highly adaptable and can be customized to fit the project requirements of any complexity.
- Ability to integrate third-party components. Magento’s API allows seamless integration of a wide range of third-party components, such as payment gateways, analytics tools, etc. Most of these components are free of charge.
- Scalability. With Magento, you do not need to switch to another platform as your business grows. Magento is suitable for e-commerce stores of any size, for any business.
- Ability to connect several stores. Many e-commerce platforms allow you to connect only one store per account. With Magento, you can set up several stores and manage them via a single admin panel.
- Responsive design. Magento supports HTML5 capabilities, making sure that the store interface is suitable for mobile devices as well.
As the proof of Magento’s popularity, here’s a list of the world’s leading brands that are using the platform:
- Coca Cola
- Land Rover
- Nestle Nespresso
- Christian Louboutin
…and many others.
