Magento Developer Toronto

If you’re looking for an all-inclusive solution to your complex shopping cart requirements, Magento is worth considering. Magento is not a magic potion, as it can tax even the most skilled coders. But with our expertise and skilled developers, we can help. Magento has made a name for itself as being a comprehensive platform with a large number of low- or no-cost modules suited for serious e-commerce sites.  However, for more basic e-commerce solutions, we recommend our DTW Commerce solution.

Magento is a great cart for companies with a dedicated server, as it may demand a high volume of server resources. Your company will also need to establish a working relationship with a team of experts like us. You cannot expect to have this software launched with the snap of your fingers. It may take weeks to months of a professional’s time to get it up and running. The cart requires competence in not only the LAMP stack but also in Zend, XML, and the InnoDB storage engine. In the end, you will have a shopping cart with precisely what you need for much less cost than building your custom solution completely from scratch. Great SEO tools available also to rank higher. For smaller projects, however, this is extremely expansive software and a resource hog!

Why Magento Design Development?

Magento Community version is a free, open-source shopping cart software. Magento is built on the powerful Zend Framework, using open source technologies and programming languages. That means a lot of things. But for the store owner this translates to flexibility in modifying or expanding the platform any way you’d like – as long as you have a solid Magento team to work with. Magento also has an enterprise version that can be used for your website if you need a powerful solid platform with loads of bells and whistles.

Magento has a large community of users, developers, and service providers worldwide. And that community is growing. The platform is evolving all the time, and there are countless Magento templates, extensions, modules, and widgets available, both commercial and free makes Magento design development a comparatively easier process.

Magento is a feature-rich e-commerce platform that comes with all the features you’d expect from a top of the line site built-in, including advanced promotional and marketing tools. Magento also has easy integration with respected 3rd party services, such as Google Analytics, Google Base, Google Checkout, Google Website Optimizer, a variety of payment processing services (including Paypal Express, Paypal Standard, and Paypal Website Payments Pro), and much more!

Why NOT Magento Design Development?

Magento has an excellent API, making it very easy to connect with third party software like warehouse applications. However, there is a complicated directory structure. Even if you just want to install a single plugin, you need to add the plugin in your template as well. Also, you need to be familiar with XML and how to place the code. Another weakness is the lack of core developer’s support.

Magento is a complex, intricate platform built on top of the Zend Framework. Magento is programmed based on the MVC approach. As a result, Magento is a system that is not necessarily easy to work with. If you want to customize Magento properly, any request will take our developers longer than if we were to work with most other open-source platforms. That means you need an appropriate budget if you think Magento is right for your business.

Magento requires a secure hosting environment and solid store management. Many people complain about Magento’s speed performance – but that’s only because they aren’t working with the proper hosting environment and setup. Unlike less cumbersome systems, such as WordPress, which works wonders pretty much anywhere, Magento performs very poorly if the website is not properly set up and hosted. That means you’ll have to pay more for an adequate server.

Conclusion

Magento has incredible potential, but it all depends on your feature requirements  to determine if Magento is the answer for you. The simplest actions, like getting categories to display, requires trips to the support forums. On the forums, mods often instruct people to rewrite errors in the program’s code – something that should never happen with a shipped product. Plan on having a good budget if you want to customize your cart a lot. The files are situated like a haphazard, crisscrossing maze of interacting XML and PHTML files. Instead of placing styles in one location (as we would in CSS), adjustments require us to dig through multiple, poorly labeled PHTML to find what we are searching for. Then we have to dig through the XML files to make sure that your change is only affecting the one feature. Various SEO extensions make search engine ranking efforts easier.

If we are developing a large system for you, then Magento as a MVC Framework might be the answer. On the other hand, for smaller, more straightforward tasks we would much rather stick with our other favorite paid carts.
