    Talking Comparing features of Magento and osCommerce

    OsCommerce is one of the first open-source ecommerce applications. According to data to April 2015, osCommerce is used by nearly 15,000 registered sites. But more than 240,000 merchants worldwide use Magento. Magento is a powerful open source CMS that gives e-commerce merchants flexible solutions and custom services to help grow their online business.
    Why many people choose Magento instead of other platform? It is a question many people know but not everyone can show.
    NgocEm shares for you some comparations between Magento and OsCommerce. Hope you have good choice.

    First, it is about Hosting. Magento is feature-rich but complex. So Magento needs a lot of storage space and a good hosting plan to support its operation. Online store owners should use it to go with reputed VPS hosting companies offering a large amount of disk space. On the other hand, osCommerce allows store owners to setup, run, and maintain their online stores with minimum effort. osCommerce website owners can find many web hosts with unlimited disk space.

    Second, it's about Cost. Both Magento and osCommerce are open source software free to install and use. For starting, you can use the community version Magento for free, but if you want some Magento extensions, features to upgrade tools of site, you have to pay fee. A lot of big website are using Magento. osCommerce is suitable for small business with low budget, low level of customer access.


    Third, it's Complexity. Magento allows users the ability to customize their websites according to preference, neccessary of company, need of customer. Feature-rich application is always attached complexity in managing the system. It is difficult for user to find and get the complicated services related to your websites. Users have to ask professional Magento experts. Opposite, osCommerce is extremely user-friend. People can manage their osCommerce sites easily.

    Forth, Other criteria is Multiple Stores. In this aspect, Magento crosses the other a little. Magento allow users to establish and manage multiple stores in multiple languages with different approaches to different kinds of customers. With osCommerce, users can build and manage only one store to sell their products.

    And Finally is Update. Magento is a pretty new software for eCommerce.Its developers go further to enhance their creation with new and important features. Therefore, the program's updates keep coming every 10 to 15 days. However, the updates of the other one is much longer.

    Best wish for you!
