Magento eCommerce is Well Documented and Supported
Hundreds of thousands of people are using and improving this open source platform. More than 200 developers are working on it as part of the Magento team, which is a well-funded company behind it (after being spun out of Ebay in 2015). Founded by a web development company that, having worked extensively with businesses and marketers, built Magento to be more user friendly and provide the kinds of display features that non-technical sales and marketing professionals wanted in their systems, Magento has since changed the industry standard for the kind of functionality an eCommerce system should offer its admin.
