Magento is one of the best, open-source platforms which helps to drive and amplify business growth and expansion. It allows customisation and is integrated with modular features that encourage extensive functionality.  Most of the online retailers prefer to use Magento for their E-commerce stores because it guarantees steady performance along with multiple other advantages which makes it rich and powerful. No wonder, its popularity is indisputable.   

However, this PHP based framework produced by the Magento development company is associated with several myths despite its production capabilities. People blindly follow these myths without even considering the reality behind it. Despite being scalable and flexible, Magento faces drawbacks in this form. Therefore, a rational explanation for these myths is necessary. 


1. Slow in performance

Data reveals that Magento is one of the fastest E-Commerce platforms which drives maximum traffic globally. This framework is lightweight which operates only on the basis of dedicated servers. One can choose lightweight and functional templates which also propels the speed of the Magento website. One should make sure that the images are optimised, that is they are less than 10 kb. The speed of the site also depends on a number of other factors like the functional features of the store. One should remove the unnecessary modules which are not being utilised.  One should also focus on not to overload the shipping cart functionality as well as disable the layered navigation option.  


2. This Platform is free

Sometimes the statement that Magento is free makes rounds too often. By this, most people understand that one does not have to pay any fee for using it. However, they are surprised when they see the pricing list on the official commercial site of Magento. There is definitely an explanation for this. The shopping cart of Magento is free and open source. One can copy and reuse this software without paying any price.  

For Magento, there are both free and paid versions. No money is charged for the community edition. However, this version delivers limited performance, lacking advanced features of the Enterprise edition. If one requires to insert additional features, one will then have to purchase the extensions. The money charged is a considerable amount, on an annual basis which gives one more opportunity for growth.


3. No option for customer support  

This is also connected closely to the myth regarding pricing. With the community edition of Magento, one has to rely on support from the members of the community in the online forums alone. Since the community of Magento is huge and also very responsive in the E-commerce industry, its popularity cannot be denied. The paid editions of the enterprise version of Magento provide the users with professional customer support on various issues and queries like installation and integration, hosting environment, other basic issues linked to configuration etc.


4. Only for Large scale businesses

This is another prominent myth which is believed by people significantly. However, the truth is that the platform of Magento is extremely scalable. It functions and supports small, medium and large industries on an equal technical scale. The developer should estimate whether Magento is suitable for the business of the client. Magento also provides adequate support to start-ups, therefore, promising potential business growth and success.
