Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2017 -- Warehouse Mobile Solutions, makers of WarehouseOS, looks at the two most popular choices for e-commerce: Magento and Shopify. While both offer many features and benefits, Magento runs 14 percent of the top one million shopping sites, and 10% of all e-commerce online. The most important thing about the two platforms is how they are used. Magento runs very large websites such as Olympus, Ghirardelli and Nike. Shopify is used by the Los Angeles Lakers and Tesla but is usually the choice of smaller businesses.
Magento is a self-hosted platform that is maintained by the business or a developer. While the higher-priced Shopify tiers offer benefits like payment gateways and abandoned shopping cart recovery, the service also takes a percentage of each sale in transaction fees, which can quickly cut into a company's bottom line.
One of the biggest challenges for an e-commerce presence is scaling as the business grows. Shopify is limited in its ability to scale, while Magento can be as large and flexible as a company needs, making it the right choice for future expansion. Magento is also 20 percent faster than Shopify, which provides a better user experience for visitors.
While both platforms include tools to build an online store. Magento makes it very easy for administrators to access reports, set up payment processors, organize products and manage customers.
