If you haven’t been caught up in the magic of Magento yet, let us tell you about the amazing features of this e-commerce platform and what makes it the best solution for your webstore.
Before seeing why you should choose Magento, let’s take a quick glance at the global organizations who are building their websites with this powerful platform. Although they belong to such diverse industries as fashion, food, and electronics, all seem delighted with their choice:
So what motivates these well-known global enterprises to select Magento as the best choice for their many customers? And what will motivate you to choose Magento from the dozens of e-commerce platforms available?
Here are the 10 most outstanding reasons which explain why Magento is the only choice for your business when building an online store.
1. Highly Effective Site Management
Magento 2 offers its users a convenient Administration Panel which allows you to manage every aspect of your website. You can control multiple stores from the same panel and even customize it to suit your needs. Winning elements of Magento’s site management system include:
- Administration permission system for allocating user roles
- A variety of templates which can be changed to suit your needs
- Support for multiple language and currencies
- Easy-to-apply content management tools for landing pages
- Excellent security: now you should enter the CAPTCHA to ensure that logins are not fake
- Export and import of catalog and customer information
And it doesn't stop there. The numerous features and simple interface of the Administration Panel make Magento one of the very best platforms for effective site management, if not the best.
2. Modular Architecture
Magento consists of smaller modules with their own purpose and functionality, rather than being an all-in-one piece of software. If Magento was a large application, it would be impossible to apply any changes without freezing the whole website. But since it’s not, you can easily add, install or delete any specific modules and extensions without sacrificing the active performance of your store.
3. High Performance
Magento’s performance is highly impressive, especially if you are running your business on Magento 2. The platform has shown great results in various tests and demonstrates lightning-quick page loading, query processing and checkout time. The latest version also supports full page cache, allowing you to optimize the speed of your web store and make it super fast.

A ready, continuous flow of fresh data is indispensable to the success of any modern e-commerce business. Fortunately, Magento provides you with 20 distinct data reports on orders, shipping fees, registered accounts, popular products, sales categories and other key performance indicators. This vital yet accessible information will keep you ahead of market trends, in touch with your customers and most important of all, ahead of your competitors.
9. Mobile-Friendly Web Applications
Because mobile shopping is expected to surpass all other sales channels in 2022, it is absolutely vital that your e-commerce platform can adapt to a wide range of devices. Fortunately, Magento’s flexible power produces websites that look good and function well on every device, from tablets to iPhones. In the highly competitive online marketplace, maximizing your reach is the difference between success and failure.
Magento also provides all the tools for creating PWAs or Progressive Web Applications. An effective PWA seamlessly guides and nurtures the customer from the moment they enter a store to delivery of their chosen product. PWAs use a variety of performance optimization strategies to provide a responsive experience or load content fast, even on slow networks. And because they can operate in browsers, these are perfect for mobile stores and make downloading bulky sales apps completely unnecessary.
10. Personalized Selling powered by AI
Fancy a big hike in conversion rates, better customer targeting and improved sales revenues? If you do, you will probably be a big fan of Magento’s Product Recommendations feature. Powered by the latest Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technologies, Magento offers nine Product Recommendations categories including ‘Trending’ and ‘Most Purchased’. These cross-selling and up-selling features provenly encourage 91% of customers to buy more when positioned prominently on an online store.
The fact that they are informed by algorithmic analysis of your customers’ purchasing and browsing behavior is what makes these features so effective. They are continually revising their knowledge to deliver the recommendations your customers want at both the practical and subliminal levels.
