Our life and especially shopping became much easier with the appearance of the Internet and online stores.
According to Digital Information World statistics, people spend more than $1,201,173 online every 30 seconds. And this huge amount increases every day, not even every day: every minute!
This is the main reason why many companies, ranging from the biggest enterprises to small shops have reoriented their business towards efficiency and a strong online presence.
And here, e-commerce development opens up new possibilities for them. The main question for store owners is how to choose the right technology for their e-commerce website. Because many online store owners use Magento CMS for their websites, we discuss such fundamental questions as the advantages of using Magento, development costs and timeline.

What are the main benefits of Magento CMS?
The main benefit of Magento is its extensive functionality available for immediate use right after installation (click on this link to see the whole list). The set of features that Magento CMS contains allows making custom solutions with any degree of complexity and processing huge data volumes. Magento solutions provide excellent performance under high load.
At the same time, the Magento platform has an adaptive web design. This means that the customers will feel comfortable using a Magento-based website on any device.
Another advantage for business owners is the ability to create and manage multiple online stores with just one admin panel. The system also allows assigning specific product characteristics, working with multiple currencies and converting them quickly and efficiently.
Certainly, to make things work smoothly, the system requires essential resources. This is why it is far better to use a more powerful dedicated server rather than using shared hosting.
Nevertheless, owners of small, medium and even large online stores choose Magento because of its functionality, easy integration with third-party services and free community edition: these are the main reasons to choose this CMS.
