If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

If you have a lively dev department and are selling $5m+/year, then this may be an option for you. But then you should probably be using Magento Enterprise anyway. I am convinced that Magento allows and follows the Open Source version not to provide any meaningful support but to glean new ideas to attract Enterprise customers.

Pros

  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles

  • Magento is fully extendable so that you can accomplish any special needs for a client without having to build a custom site.
  • Magento is powerful and fast on the proper web server. It can handle a huge number of products and customers successfully.
  • Magento has a very flexible catalog structure so that you can sell most any type of product or product combination.
  • Magento is easy to integrate with other systems.
  • Magento is great for non-technical people to be able to update content, as it's also a full CMS system.

Cons

  • Not everyone can navigate easily without training
  • Some reports can be fairly large and take lots of time to download

  • Magento is well known for its bugs in early releases of each version. Luckily, there is a great community always providing temporary fixes and patches.
  • Magento should allow you to add user-defined fields for customers. It allows you do do this for products, but for customers, you must be able to program in order to create user-defined fields.
  • Magento should have built-in support for dimensional shipping methods. I think in general the shipping integrations are weak. Most people need to purchase add-ons to get really accurate shipping rates.

It's the dominant force in the SMB open source market. With the continued support of eBay/PayPal, Magento will continue to evolve and should be a market leader for some time.

Alternatives Considered

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.

Magento is excellent for large shops, with large quantities of products and makes scaling as the shop grows easy and quick. But it does truly require a dedicated server and an experienced developer to get things up and going. I prefer WooCommerce for smaller shops as its quick and easy to get setup and running with minimal fuss and will run well on a shared hosting.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to use customer service tools
  • Invaluable reporting abilities
  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees
Donovan Farmer profile photo
  • It definitely let us start with a decent store and scale from 0 to 15,000 products without many performance issues. But that comes with a cost: we were unable to change the design of the checkout, SEO was poor, and adding banners or more store-related things was very time consuming.
  • Debugging is hard and you will break your head with some errors that break your store, and you don't know how to solve them. This was one of the reasons why we left it.
