It has its pros and cons. We haven’t used the e-commerce functions but we built the website to have the option to do so in the future. In hindsight, it made things a bit more complicated than it needed to be for our intentions.
It is a popular CMS for E-commerce sites.
We are very happy with Magento. We were so frustrated with the limited functionality and control we had using previous website softwares, we found Magento a Godsend. We love having complete control over hosting and our website content and not being a prisoner to any one hosting or software company. We also love the easy access to extensions for adding functionality important to the site at an affordable price (there is always an app for that"). On previous platform, it seemed to cost 1000's of dollars to add any functionality and then there were always issues. With Magento, every single function I wanted to add, someone already built and it could be purchased for 100's rather than 1000's of dollars. I also love being able to sell on ebay and Amazon, in addition to our website with just a touch of a button. I do think the learning curve might be steep to some users but that is because of how much functionality and power it has.
we start out store on magento 6 yeras ago from 0 turn over to 600k.
I think it is a really good platform with lots for modules you add for free or buy for not much money.
And you can grow with it. We have connected lot of other system to it from accounting to logistics.
I'm not the coder and we struggle to find a good one, that would have an experience with magento which i think is a key to success for using this platform.
There is lots of possibilities to find them in asia with a good value for money, but sometimes you need one in your own native language.
But we find a good one in Slovakia, so so far the issue is solved.
We would recommend magento to everybody.
I would recommend it. We do not use all of the features offered by the Magento platform so I cannot give you too many specifics, but we use Magento to manage the pages on our website. We also used it for order processing, but have since switched to quickbooks. Magento seems to be a great platform that can be utilized for many different tasks.
I use Magento a lot. I'm a bit of a computer idiot so I find it quite easy to use, it's a very methodical software to use but it doesn't seem to work very well with retail express our point of sale system. Magento has a nice customer face and seems easy enough to use even from the customers point of view. I do have a couple of complaints though: 1. Its search system is inclusive rather than exclusive - the more you type into the search box the more stuff it brings up, it doesn't narrow the search it widens it. 2. you can only have instock or out of stock, there is no available to order option. 3. the WYSIWYG boxes don't always present in the same way as the front face on the website 4. Pictures require that you can type in file and pathway form - ie. hosted/website-pics/traxxas/.............etc.
We are changing to shopify at the moment as magento crashes a lot and constant faults causes issues with stock
We indeed use Magento. If we could start all over again we wouldn't choose Magento again. I think Magento is O.K. but less suitable for use with very large databases. We managed to get it operated, but with many troubles.
I had before the wordrpeess free tamplete from themforest and it was not the most convertive. my brother changed to to magento theme with this design and the sales go up. if you ask about comfort i prefer magento over wordpress now
I am not sure if I really can recommend it. It sure depends what one is using it for. As for my purpose it is not 100% suitable and what I definitely do not like is that one gets lost of ads (from magento, from app-companies): But others might like that.
I am selling online since 20 years now and my previous versions were easier to use. But today a website needs to be better and that requires a lot of tech features.
I used to like it, but I build my own store, which by now needs to be updated. I don’t have the time, but I keep refusing these ridiculous prices to upgrade my magento store to the latest version, because, let’s be honest, it’s not worth 4000 dollars (latest price quoted).
Magento store is too big for my meager few hundreds items, so I would recommend it only for bigger operations.
I would recommend Magento to business users with resources to develop the program.
As far as a small business or single business user I would and have recommended Shopify.
Cliched as it is each system has its limitations. We moved from WooCommerce and find it better.
The most astonishing thing for us is that Magento does not easily list stock manually set to 'out of stock'. One has to use a very cumbersome spreadsheet.
I have been very happy with Magento. It allowed us to build a really complex and powerful site. I am not a developer (I worked with one) but I have poked around quite a bit on the back end of my site and see even more capabilities that I want to implement.
I am using Magento about 7 years and although at the beginning one has to cope with a steep learning curve I would certainly recommend Magento.
Only use Magento certified extensions. This prevents a lot of problems.
It is also a plus if you can program in php and or sql to prevent that one has to rely on specialists for changes.
We are using Magento 5-6 years and we are quite happy with Magento. Easy to use for me (everydays administration), no problems. Our partener built site for us, so no experience with site first building.
I do not have experiences with other platforms, so i can´t say that Magento is the best. But i hope so.
I've been pretty happy with Magento, but don't have anything to compare it to! I had a developer do the setup, but have found I've been able to tinker with things myself when required, so it's reasonably intuitive to use.
we are using a highly customized version of Magento.
I have worked with Magento a lot in the past 5 years, and I would definitely recommend it for a shop with a medium-big sized product catalog. I’ve worked on websites with around 500,000 products and variations, Magento was still performing great, although it did require a few servers to run.
For smaller shops I’d recommend something like Shopify. Really simple to use.
we are on Magento Enterprise and highly recommend it. We sell a mixture of product types both digital and physical and this system handles it well. You will however need Magento certified technicians to develop and maintain the site, which can be expensive.
I've been developing and managing magento based websites for over 5 years now. I highly recommend it but it does need some tender care and customization.
we would highly recommend Magento. It is fully integrated with our POS Sys, NCR Retail. We have such a unique and eclectic mix of what we sell and what we teach, that it is the perfect fit and VERY user friendly. It also does minute updates on inventory stock levels and new items".
We do use Magento and are very happy using it. It doesn't update itself so you would have to do it with the web-builder you got it from, but very user-friendly, even if your not a computer type of person.
we would recommend Magento.
I have issues with login in so i am not fond of it
It does seem to be pretty user friendly. We did not set it up initially but I do manage it now. Our online marketing firm set it up.
can say its very good.
Its not bad, it could be a lot better and personally I think its better buying a professional system. But that is my opinion.
We are in the process of switching from Magento to Big Commerce.
we use Magento because it's powerful, reliable and free of costs.
Magento is fine. But we're using an older 1.9x version
i recommend it
