Shopping is one of the most popular online activities worldwide, with surges in e-commerce occurring over the past two years due, in part, to pandemic-related factors.
In 2020, retail e-commerce sales worldwide amounted to $4.28 trillion and e-retail revenues are projected to grow to $5.4 trillion in 2022, according to Statista.
Used by more than 250,000 merchants worldwide, Magento is a preferred open-source e-commerce platform among the nearly 400 options for businesses. Because the program is open source — source code is made freely available for possible modification and redistribution — collaborative efforts among users often take place, yielding regular, improved functionality. Magento’s flexibility makes it a leading choice for website owners seeking to sell a product online.
Magento is highly customizable, with a deep well of options for design, third-party integrations and scalability to fit a growing business’s needs as they arise. Magento can easily handle large inventories, as well as a high volume of visitors and sales.
DIVERSE CURRENCY, LANGUAGE SUPPORT
In a global market, Magento’s support of numerous currencies and languages makes it a leading choice for e-commerce. Tools such as a geoIP redirect module can automatically detect a visitor’s location before redirection, displaying prices in the visitor’s local currency and adapting to the user’s browser language.
