Without any doubt, eCommerce is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to make a profit online. But, if you want to take advantage of this modern form of commerce, you will need a website. By using a good eCommerce platform, you will speed up this process. The best eCommerce platforms provide excellent discount and sales functionalities, offer integration with many payment processors, provide access to analytics tools and more. A simple eCommerce platform comparison should help ordinary users find the best solution for their eCommerce venture. That’s why we have created a comparison list like that.
Magento is a popular brand in the field of eCommerce. It represents an eCommerce platform which is focused on larger businesses. What’s great about Magento is that it offers an excellent level of flexibility. But, if you don’t have any coding and programming knowledge, you won’t be able to use this platform to the maximum. On the other hand, Magento is a scalable solution which is ideal for large stores. Another positive thing about it is that the SEO features are included in the basic package. Magento also supports many fiat currencies and integrates with all the popular payment processors.
There are many things that make WooCommerce different than Magento. First of all, this is a plugin, not a classic eCommerce platform. WooCommerce was developed as a plugin that helps WordPress users add an online store to their sites. Next, this eCommerce platform is free. Even though WooCommerce doesn’t have many built-in features, you can use many themes and extensions. We should also mention that there’s a lively user community at WordPress and if you ever get stuck, they will definitely help you. One of the downsides of using this platform is that you have to add more than one extension in order to get better functionality.
AbanteCart is not a famous brand as the previous two brands. However, this doesn’t make AbanteCart less interesting. Namely, this platform features tons of excellent options. It has a simple interface which allows users to create online stores quickly. It’s perfect for users who want to add many products because the process is accelerated and takes just minutes to add new products. Another good thing is that it has a built-in search engine optimization functionality. But, when we compare the community of this platform and the community of WooCommerce we will notice that AbanteCart’s community is very small.
