The infographic below is dedicated to the biggest open-source eCommerce solution right now, Magento. It began its development early in 2007, and just seven months later, Magento released its first public beta client. Right from the start, programmers loved its open-source nature, and large companies subscribed to Magento for its powerful and highly customizable features.
Unlike other website builders, Magento requires a note of competence in coding. Being an open-source platform means that you won’t be able to create your website without any prior coding knowledge. However, if you do know how to code, your possibilities are endless. Many people see this as a downside, but the facts beg to differ.
If you are an avid online shopper, the chances are that you have already browsed through a Magento-based online store. For example, big-name brands like Nike, Ford, Samsung, and many other ones are using this powerful PHP-based platform. Some estimates from 2017 even listed over 220,000 active websites running on Magento.
