- Magento is Open Source
Magento Community Edition is free. You can install, alter or use this edition of Magento in any manner you like. If you have a Magento specialist by your side, it’s possible to supercharge the Magento code and power up the ecommerce website with new features and desired functionality by installing Magento extensions. These extensions are made available through Magento Connect marketplace.
- Community Support
Since it’s an open source solution, there’s a large community of developers around the world working on it on a day to day basis, ensuring the ecommerce platform is up to date, secure & fast. Help is readily available.
- Built for E-Commerce
WordPress, although considered a full-blown CMS today, isn’t built specifically for e-commerce like Magento. That’s precisely why Magento scores over ‘Wordpress + WooCommerce’ and ‘Drupal + Drupal Commerce’ combos. This ecommerce solution comes preloaded with scores of features and specs needed to put up a functional e-commerce website.
