Very good program in my opinion and is being used instead of flash by many WS Builders.

hi malen,

because it was free shareware, i gave it a shot but i couldn't make it work personally.
i had to ditch my project. i felt you really needed to know html and other code, which
i don't know. good on you that you got it to be your backend of all your shops...

I would definitely recommend Magento for ecommerce. After reviewing my options, Magento has the best options when it comes to design and back office interface with other programs such as accounting software. I haven't put my products up, but take a look when time permits.

You can also integrate a blog in which I've done. There's free and paid add-ons based on your needs including the blog app to integrate with your site.

Thanks for the Comments guys, I really dont know code that well myself either, But i figure some things out here and there, It works well because of my multi store. So i have to out source to get some things done, I happen to find a guy that knows magento really well.

There is no turning back now, But i appreciate the input, I was wondering if anyone on the board was doing any programing.

Thanks guys

I really didn't have any coding experience myself and it's been a long process. If you decide to go the Magento route, I do have some guides I can email you if you pm me.

Your site looks really nice. Did you do the site yourselves? Know any good programmers that understand it inside and out?

I am happy with our sites, and we did a lot of it ourselves but i want to put some finishing touches on it.

Thanks

Thanks guys, glad you like our site. We designed the look of the site and hired a programmer to implement the look and theme for us. Check out scriptlance.com - there's a lot of good programmers on there that do great work.

Just found a link titled "5 of the Best Magento resourses on the Internet"... I can attest that these are great resources to go thru when needing help while developing or planning your site.

Curious to know what e-commerce features are offered by your service provider that made you select Magento? I've seen several Magento as well as Zen templates that I like. But still checking a few things out.

Default Re: Is any one used Magento?

What features are you looking for? There are extensions you can add both free and paid that will extend the functions of your site. I have both free and paid extensions, for example I have a free theme called Hellowired for my site. Free extensions called Easytabs, AW Blog which integrates a blog within your site. The free extensions and functions are endless! I do have a few paid extensions like a survey extension which enables my customers to take surveys that I set up. You can reward them with a coupon code at the end of them taking the survey or merely thank them. There are thousands of themes and extensions you can use and IMHO the best in open source ecommerce right now.

How did you like the Aw blog extension? Do you have 1.4 magento.
