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.

Sku Grid

Sku Grid does job very well at what it is supposed to do -- monitoring suppliers and syncing changes over to marketplaces. They have some features that are not as useful, like Buy Box Owner, but maybe in the future we will start using it.

Pros

Magento Open Source

  • Magento 2 CE has a very robust document workflow which mirrors most mid-large ERP systems. There's a "papertrail" which mimics your business processes, and each part of the process is exposed to the API which makes for some great integration potential.
  • Magento 2 CE is also great for tracking customer history, saves a record for each and allows you to understand customer interests better.
  • Magento 2 CE is highly expandable, with a full marketplace of free and premium modules that should accomplish some pretty niche sales or service goals.

  • Monitoring price & stock change at a wide variety of suppliers, from Amazon to small stores.
  • Updating price & stock data at eBay just when the price was updated over at the supplier.
  • Letting us do a lot of customizations and configure repricing rules the way we want them to be.

Cons

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.

  • Custom support is the main issue -- they need more people.

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

Magento Open Source

Magento is hands down better than any hosted platform (i.e., BC), but only if you have a good development team. Hosted platforms are very limiting as to what you can accomplish "outside the box." Magento is much better than WooCommerce in its user friendliness and its feature set.

Sku Grid

We have tried DSM Tool, AutoDS, Salefreaks -- they all seem very simple, but their functionality is simple as well, perhaps not enough for advanced users. Sku Grid has a sharp learning curve, but it is far more advanced and more reliable.

Return on Investment

Magento Open Source

  • 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.

  • While using it, we have increased the number of sales that we have over at eBay.
