Magento Go

Overall Satisfaction with Magento

We used Magento Go as we planned at some point to move to community but where our business was at the time we need it to be a quick and easy solution that we could easily port over at a later date. It was very easy to set up and install.
  • Lots of features that allow it to compete with the biggest platforms out there.
  • The marketplace usually has a few dozen suppliers of each non-standard feature you could want.
  • Lots of people know how to use Magento now
  • MagentoGo has been retired as of 2015 but we saw this coming and were already in the process of moving
  • Updates and 3rd party compatibility has always been a problem historically
  • Lot's of people will tell you that Magento is slow and a drain on server resources but I've seen some very quick examples so optimisation is key.
  • Rolled out very quickly
  • Very easy to port to the communtity version
I've worked with many of the different platforms but as long as you are willing to roll your sleeves up (or have someone else roll theirs up) it's a great highly competative platform
I'd always tell people that they will usually need to make some compromises when selecting an ecommerce platform but Magento does as much as any (and often more) than some of the largest platforms out there.

Using Magento

We've already moved to the community version where we plan to stay for >2 years
