Dealing with the new, resource-intensive platform
Many store owners often ask me how to take part in our regular ‘Store of the Month’ section and submit their store. Well, there are no explicit steps. Some merchants showcase their stores in our forum, others left reviews on the extensions they’ve bought on the product pages. So, any activity is welcome!
This time I had the opportunity to interview Stefan Schwann, the chief of web development and design of electronic4you, to gain some insights into what goes into creating a Magento store from scratch and why the platform continues to be so popular.
What: This Austria based retailer sells electronic items, like TV’s, audio products, handies, smartphones, tablet computers, etc. They sell products online and provide shipping within the country and outside Austria.
electronic4you has eight stores were customers can pick up their online orders or take a look at a product before buying it.
The company’s goal is to provide the best quality, price and customer service.
Where: Klagenfurt, Austria
Q. What attracted electronic4you to Magento?
A. Back in 2010, when we began the development of our store we faced the problem of choosing a platform.
We carefully analyzed pros and cons of existing ecommerce platforms and the decision fell to Magento. It was the best platform existing on the market at that time.
Magento can handle a huge amount of products and orders without any problems and the customization of the look and feel is also easy.
