Magento has the ability to recognize the needs of the customer and provides all support to shop with only a few products, adding an increase in their business from bottom to top notch without changing the platform. Magneto has a variety of peripherals and themes to enhance the customer’s experience with many more aspects of the online store. The online store has lots of preferences which need to be configured depending business activity.
Magento is an application developed in such manner so that a non-developer can also browse it easily. The Magento community is extremely large and very helpful. There are quite a few reasons why developers are in demand to accustom the Magento website because the system is a very tough, even in its basic, more so even than a Drupal site (and Durapal is no light weight). Once you introduce your business with fewer products and make a jump of thousands of products, you require someone who is expertise in this field, for example there are clients who need additional options to view their dashboard. We have a habit to view products in groups of 5,25 or 50 but still there are clients whose requirement is to view products roundabout 2000. So to change the functionality we need an expert who really understands Magento, and follows best practices.
Experienced developers will also tell you that speed is of the essence in eCommerce. No one wants to have to wait for systems to reload when you're doing a lot of online shopping. With such a robust list of features native to the application, strains can be put on your server. While we haven't yet had a Magento client require more than one server for their online store, I can foresee that situation arising in the future.
