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.

Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source is well suited for small or medium-sized businesses who don't have a lot of money or time to start their online store. If our web design client can select a specific pre-made template beforehand, and they do not want a ton of complex or extremely specific functionalities, then we suggest Magento Open Source to the client. If the client is a large retailer wanting very specific features, then OpenCart or complete custom code might be a better choice.

Pros

AspDotNetStorefront

  • Tons of reporting tools
  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles

Magento Open Source

  • Magento scales very well. That means if you keep adding more products, there's no significant performance decline. This sounds like a very technical and unuseful thing but actually it's very important and depends heavily on the type of eCommerce solution you are providing. In our case, we were supposed to have many products (+15,000) so we never have many scale issues with it.
  • Exporting information works reasonably well. It is relatively fast and has decent built-in capabilities.
  • Attributes are well built considering other eCommerce options. It's very flexible and you can modify many things, including brands, easily.
  • Multistore (differente languages/places) seems to work fine but we didn't use it. I'm just referring to what I've read

Cons

AspDotNetStorefront

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

Magento Open Source

  • Like I mentioned previously, Magento Open Source allows us to develop custom solutions for areas where it did not offer a feature out of the box. While the ease of development is good, had these features been available out of the box, it would have been even better.
  • We occasionally find that some third party vendors do not work well with Magento Open Source. We have had to come up with work-arounds or abandon certain vendors all together because of our use of Magento Open Source.
  • This isn't really a drawback of Magento Open Source itself, but finding developers that are familiar with Magento can be difficult.
  • When you are first getting familiar with Magento Open Source, navigating the menus can be very intimidating. There are seemingly hundreds of pages and tabs in Magento and until you are familiar with it, you can very easily get lost.

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

AspDotNetStorefront

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 Open Source

In a few words:
  • WooCommerce: easy to setup, huge community and easy to customize. Hard to scale, but can be done.
  • PrestaShop: poor brother of WooCommerce. Less community, less customization... not sure why anybody would use it.
  • Shopify: SaaS solution. Harder to customize (due to Shopify restrictions) but very easy to setup and has many nice add-ons. Hard to manage at scale.
  • Magento: good at scaling, expensive to customize and in general to develop. Hard to customize.

  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees

  • ROI -- that's a tough one. It's a pricey platform to launch on. Coming from the BigCommerce platform, which is relatively cheap, and where most of the design was handled in-house, the M2 platform is quite a bit more expensive as we outsourced most of the dev and the ongoing is much higher. I'd say at these early stages, we're well in the negatives with ROI.
  • Now on the positive side -- I see the potential of the platform. Once we get the marketing down, and the traffic levels raised, I see the ROI leveling out very quickly. This is a platform meant for growth, so as growth is pushed, we'll be ready to scale and handle it effectively.
  • All in all, I'd project that we'd be in the green on the ROI within 3 years (start of project through new site launch through year 3) with nothing but future growth in front of us as we learn and continue to develop the site over time.
