The WooCommerce vs Magento comparison is a part of our big research focused on the comparison of WooCommerce with other e-commerce technologies available on the web.

Magento is considered to be the most popular platform for enterprise e-commerce projects, but after WooCoommerce its second most popular e-commerce platform in the world.

This comparison is based on the parameters, that we provided in the post, called What is WooCommerce? Comparison and Detailed Overview.

Magento has got the next rates

Simple and comprehensive architecture. This technology is well designed from an e-commerce perspective. All the data is well structured, but learning all Magento’s features takes quite a lot of time to start using and expanding them. 6 points.

Availability and support of the core features. The technology supports all necessary basic features. 9 points.

Scalability. The system as a whole is modular, but the modules development requires higher level of knowledge. The theme inheritance system is implemented in a complex way, which makes it harder to develop customized solutions. 7 points.

Response time. The problem is that the system is initially designed for large online stores and the server fine-tuning, which leads to high cost of hosting for small stores. 4 points.

Integrity and compatibility. In general, a variety of features is available out of the box, which allows to implement a lot of opportunities. 7 points.

Support and updatability.  The core is updated regularly by the team of project developers. However, to get support for your own projects, themes and modules is quite difficult due to the complexity of the core examination. 5 points.

The level of customization. Due to the complexity of learning the technology and the lack of scalability, the development of individual solutions also gets more difficult to implement and causes extra costs. 6 points.

Standardization and dependency on the developers. Standardization is well thought out; it is possible to get a developer’s certificate. Although there is high staff dependency, as due to the complexity of learning it may be hard to hire the developers, plus they may charge higher fees. 6 points.

Security. There is a well-designed basic security and some additional solutions. You need to work on the hosting and follow the updates. 7 points.

Marketing tools and SEO. Many points are not thought out well, and additional modules are quite complex in expanding the features. Due to the lack of a flexible system for working with blog and content, it is very difficult to do content marketing, the most trending marketing method so far. 5 points.

Large market. Magenta development market is quite big—one of the largest among all e-commerce platforms. 7 points.

Overall rating: 6,27
