What is Magento

Magento is a very well known open source e-commerce platform that is used by some of the largest companies in the world. With one of the largest feature sets of any e-commerce platform, it can be customised to operate stores handling a large number of transactions and with very complex workflows. For many of our clients, Magento provides a lot of functionality that will never be used. With such a great number of features, users are very often daunted by what they consider over-complicated. Our recommendation is generally to only consider using Magento if you have a very large inventory, complex requirements, or experience with it already.

Scale into different languages and markets

Magento is designed to allow website owners to launch their sites in multiple different languages, in different currencies.


Enterprise ready

With features such as approval workflows, content staging, elastic search integration and loyalty systems (to name a few), Magento ticks all the right boxes for large scale enterprises.

Packed with Features

If there was a contest for number of features, Magento would win hands down. If your business has complex requirements, there is a good chance that Magento provides some or all of those out of the box, with some customisation. For small businesses, Magento would typically be considered overkill.


Multiple store-fronts

Launch and manage multiple stores from a single admin interface.

Questions about Magento

What kind of business is Magento designed for?

Whilst technically a business of any scale can use Magento, it is targeted generally at large enterprises who benefit from enterprise features such as approval workflows and content staging.

What is the difference between Magento Enterprise Edition vs Open Source?

Magento Open Source is a downloadable ecommerce platform that is free to use. The Enterprise edition is a software-as-a-service model (starting at around $2,000 USD per month) that comes with support and managed hosting. The Enterprise version is appropriate if you do not have an in-house IT team, need PCI-DSS compliance and expect lots of traffic without needing to worry about if your servers can handle it.

Is there a cheaper solution available?

We also offer e-commerce solutions using Craft Commerce and Shopify. We recommend Craft Commerce to most businesses, because it sits in a sweet spot of providing a lot of features, without the complexity of Magento.

What can I do with Magento?

Since the feature set is so large, and the core platform is open source, there are endless possibilities. It all comes down to time and budget. Get in touch with us to start the discussion!
