Magento is an open source ecommerce platform built on the ZEND , which is the best PHP framework available so from a perspective of stability having been built on that platform makes it work wonders!
Magento has many features which I could go on about for hours but I will summaries what I feel are very important to any ecommerce based company:
Profit report!! For every product you list you are able to enter the cost price so you can run a report at anytime calculating to the penny how much profit you are making. This is usually provided by your accountant but now you can do this at any time.
For every state you can set statuses and you can filter these should you need to for example see all orders that are part shipped or pending payment.
For example :- Batch printing is another great one. Let’s say you have 100 orders in pending you need to print all the invoices in one go. Easy! Select the order status to filter those you need and press print a PDF is created containing all the invoices which you can send to print. If required the invoices can be formatted to paper with the sticky label you peel off and stick to the consignments.
So what else do we think is great?
