Magento: Open Source & Powerful E-Commerce Software

Magento is an e-commerce software which is still in the beta version. On the other hand there are already many users loving it because of the way it works and its features.

I had known Oscommerce as the most popular open source e-commerce software since today but it seems like Magento may be the new one.

This is really a smart software which is standards-compliant, has templating, multilanguage features and many more. One of the features amazed the most is "you can manage more than 1 e-shops" from the same admin.

There is already an active community using the product where you can find for support too.

    Magento is not for the feint of heart by any means, if you want to customize the way your store looks be ready for more than a few all night-ers. Magento is more of a Shopping cart language and an out of the box eCommerce solution. To quote the Wikipedia Entry on Magento (

    “Nothing turns the easy into impossible like Magento”
