One of the best rivalry pair in today’s technology is Magento and osCommerce, but the involvement of modern technologies are favoring Magento as of now.
PRICES AND COSTS
Talking about the investment, they are quite similar as both are open source platforms, it means we do not have to pay for downloading and installing them. This is also more advantageous because the developers can freely work with them. Hosting is another factor that must be treated on priority and both the technologies are up to the mark in providing the required service, but somewhere it depends on the traffic that a particular site is obtaining.
It is quite clear that Magento is a more complex system when compared with osCommerce, the user interfaces itself is much more complicated with plenty of features and options.
As Magento is more complex and even every single unit can be transformed and customized. So the main aspect is the requirement of professional assistants to customize or transform the system as per the choices. It is worth investing both energy and money in that, so everybody wants to have a unique design or appearance. Hence even this “lap” has won by Magento when compared with osCommerce.
Updation plays a vital role in the success of any technology because it fulfills the needs and requirements of the users regularly. With the help of updated and latest versions of the software, it provides user smooth experience in his working. In Magento, a new system update is released generally every month with additional specific security updates, responsiveness and many more. Whereas on the other hand osCommerce update does not take place regularly. This indicates the major importance of Magento over osCommerce.
