Why Magento Continues to Lead the Ecommerce CMS Industry

magento ecommerce cms

Ecommerce sites used to be quite an investment and required in investment that only enterprise corporations could afford. As more and more consumers purchase online, retailers continue to see declines in store visits – so it’s become imperative that they build their ecommerce presence and try to take back market share.

While there are some great platforms out there that combine hosting, ease-of-use, service and even point of sales systems… the vast majority of high inventory sellers have implemented Magento as their ecommerce CMS. As with other open source platforms, Magento Community Edition has skyrocketed in popularity with a huge network of service, design, development and integration resources.

Magento is flexible enough to meet all your unique needs and constantly grow with you by virtue of its extensions collection. There are thousands of templates and themes to jazz up a Magento website and Magento Extensions to help your website expand its forte. The Community edition is open to modification of the core system; whereas the Enterprise edition has more features and functionality but it is not free or is not open to modification of the core system.

Magento - the Best Ecommerce CMS

    I’d like to disagree. Here’s stats from BuiltWith regarding ecommerce usage on the entire internet: http://trends.builtwith.com/shop

    Or to cut straight to the results, here’s a screencap from 1/26/15: http://danielsantoro.com/files/randshare/usage-statistics.png

    Magento powers 9.94% of all online shops… WooCommerce powers 17.77%, almost double the users. It’s clear Magento isn’t ‘leading the industry’, as their market share continues to shrink while WooCommerce continues to grow.

    As a side note, I’m bombarded by popups and popovers while writing this – I’ve had to close four separate windows to this point, so you may want to disable some of the marketing plugins. Not a good UX.

    Thanks for giving false statistics. This post is garbage. Magento is simply going to die, WooCommerce is taking the eCommerce to a next level and i can tell you that because i worked on about hundreds of projects of Magento/Prestashop/WooCommerce
