More on Magento

Eight months ago, I was talking about open source eCommerce, and I asked Can open source eCommerce contend? At the time I was worried by the lack of quality and even more so the poor user interfaces offered in the open source eCommerce solutions. However, I talked briefly about a new solution that was soon-to-be-released, Magento. Well, it’s been released and in my opinion it is probably the best solution available.

Jeffery Scott posted a great article called Magento – The New Standard in Open Source eCommerce over at our recently launched Web Developer News site. Magento is making huge progress, and I hope that this new blood forces other eCommerce solutions to take action. A little competition could benefit us all.

    There is nothing more to say. In my opinion, Magento is the new star within ecommerce software solutions and more than 650.000 downloads are definitely a proof for that…. I believe that we´ll have a lot of fun with Magento in the future.

  2. The implementation of digital downloads is a huge seller for me. To offer my clients the capability of selling ebooks and other digital downloads makes Magento very attractive.

  3. We just implmented Magento on our site and it works wonderfully with our backend. I highly recommend it for anyone looking at adding ecommerce to their web site.
