Specialised Magento developers help in establishing the popular shop software and have the necessary expertise to make sure everything runs smoothly later. This applies in particular to the free Magento Community Edition which will quickly reach its limits when the site receives many simultaneous hits.
Magento is currently the most widely used shop software by far. The e-commerce CMS runs on more than one percent of all websites, including those without online shops. This is a respectable amount, especially when you take into account the fact that Magento is on rank four of the most widely used CMS.
Magento developer for the Community Edition
There are two editions sold by the Magento company, the free Magento Community Edition and the commercial Magento Enterprise Edition. The biggest difference between the Magento Community Edition (CE) and the Magento Enterprise Edition (EE) is the price – a hefty $15,550 per year. With the Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition there is still a further package which combines the software with PaaS hosting on fast Amazon servers. There is no big difference feature-wise to Magento EE.
The most widely used edition is then understandably the Magento Community Edition. The catch with the free Magento version is the performance, which means that if there are many simultaneous hits Magento CE will quickly run into issues. This is where a professional Magento developer comes into play – to coach the maximum performance out of the free Magento CE. They will also take over the professional set up of the online shop with all the necessary details, however a fundamental performance optimisation is the be-all and end-all for Magento.
Magento CE which has not been perfectly installed will start to generate loading times of 3 seconds or more already from 12 concurrent users. This is unacceptable for most users and it will, without a doubt, affect the success of the sale. Magento EE is optimised for high numbers of hits on the page and can easily cope quickly with 300 concurrent users.
In Magento CE certain basic content management features are missing which make it difficult to handle and update the shop interface. Magento EE has a well-equipped WYSIWYG Editor with versions. Magento developers can also retrofit Magento CE with external CMS modules to become a fully-fledged CMS.
Magento developer – a question of price
It’s especially important to keep costs under control when entering e-commerce. The annual $15,550 for Magento EE as well as your company’s profits will first need to be earned. This can only be done by larger and already established online shops.
To promote a new shop a positive browsing and shopping experience is a must, as well as attractive products and competitive prices.
To be able to keep costs at a minimum without compromising on design, features and performance you will need to hire an affordable Magento developer with the help of offshore Outsourcing.
