Magento is a Content Management System (CMS) built specifically for ecommerce websites. By engaging professional Magento developers, it’s possible for any business to make a big entrance into the competitive but lucrative world of online retail.
Today, the CMS is the third most popular way to power an ecommerce website – beaten only by WooCommerce and Shopify, though Magento has a number of advantages over both rivals.
Magento – A Comprehensive Ecommerce Solution
Magento is a complete CMS – meaning that it can manage every aspect of an ecommerce website. This sets it apart from WooCommerce – an additional plugin for WordPress, which acts as the underlying CMS.
Magento also stands apart from Shopify, in that it offers online retailers far more flexibility. Shopify may work well for companies that need a fast and cheap way to enter ecommerce, but it also imposes a string of limitations on users, and rarely delivers the flexibility that businesses require.
With Magento, users have a number of options. A key decision lies in the choice between using a self-hosted or hosted Magento solution – each leveraging slightly different forms of the CMS. At nibbr, we’re happy to advise you which option will deliver the best results for your business, and develop your website accordingly.
