Magento Open Source

It's well suited for large eCommerce stores as it requires much effort to set up and the development cost for setting it up is high. It's less appropriate to use Magento where you are looking for quick development and launch of the store. Also, it is required to have a developer or sometimes the entire tech team to manage an e-commerce store, so you may need to hire a few PHP developers.

Cons

Elastic Path

  • Product management tool should be assesible over web.

Magento Open Source

  • Not the simplest of solutions to use or maintain from an end-user perspective
  • Other platforms are better with regards to SEO in our experience
  • Fairly sluggish and slow compared to other platforms without the correct server specification and performance optimization work.

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

Elastic Path

As a system integrator here are my thoughts --Elastic path is one of best ecommerce tools, which would fit any retailer/ telcos business needs. The software architecture is well thought through and it is built with open source tools, the Ecommerce application is easily extensible and it enables clients to get there E-commerce application in less time.We have evaluated other products like ATG ecommerce, WCS, Magento. Elastic path is definitely a briliant ecommerce product which I would recommend to any clients.

Magento Open Source

In looking at a different platform to migrate to from Magento 1, we looked primarily at Big Commerce, Shopify and Shopify Plus. Our host was very negative about Magento 2, but we determined after a couple years it was due to the fact it had even more complexity (and very different) than Magento 1. Shopify Plus was attractive, but the cost factor for two sites led us back to Magento 2.

Return on Investment

Elastic Path

  • The positive impact was quick development time
Carl Thien | TrustRadius Reviewer

Magento Open Source

  • Delays in development leads to missed timelines and opportunity loss.
  • High cost of development and maintenance may currently outweigh the growth.
  • Better handling of customer and order information makes for better customer service.
  • Excellent API has been a boon for integration with our ERP
