Why businesses choose tradeit™ over Magento 2

  • Greater Functionality

    Magento 2 is a basic ecommerce platform which is reflected in its feature set and capabilities. Despite the constant rebranding or changing of names (Magento, Magento 2, Magento Community, Magento Enterprise, Adobe Commerce etc...) it still falls well short of offering the comprehensive ecommerce capabilities for companies serious about growth.

  • Security Issues

    Like other open source ecommerce platforms, Magento is extremely vulnerable to security risks, particularly when it is not patched. There’s been numerous incidents over the years of thousands of Magento sites getting hacked and despite the aforementioned name changes things don't seem to have improved.

  • Inherent Features

    The huge number of features in tradeit are all inherent to the platform so are available out of the box for greater stability and ease of customisation. There is no reliance on third-party apps, widgets, or plug-ins created by developers who are not experts on the software.

  • Advanced B2B Ecommerce

    Magneto 2 was designed for retailers. It’s a reasonable option for medium-sized retailers with a team of developers but it’s B2B functionality is still behind the curve. Some B2B tools have been added but it’s still well short of being able to cater for the requirements of heavyweight B2B ecommerce. Think about it like this, tradeit was built from the ground up to support both B2B & Retail ecommerce almost 20 years ago, Adobe Commerce added some B2B ecommerce features a couple of years ago!
