Hey, you must be thinking that i am Crazy or High.
Any one you speak with for starting an ecommerce store says that use an open source software like Magento, Opencart etc then what is it that i am going to tell you which others don’t know.
To start with i will say any open source is a fantastic piece of software and that is all, it end there.
The reason i say so is that for any open source solution there is no parent body that is supporting it so what you are left with is a set of freelancers who make their living out of calling them certified developers on the same.
Now think of it as a car you bought from a company who says i wont service it and you can go to someone who might not know whats under the hood but is certified to help you.
I don’t know why people don’t find it weird.
Open source solutions make perfect sense in case you are looking for a starter ecommerce store for a single business with no complexity involved but when you are building a Startup which is going to Change the world or you are platform which has Super Human capabilities or you are starting an online store for your buyers and looking for a dependable team then Retaxis is a solution worth giving a TRY!
I hope you don’t go to a VC asking for a million dollar funding for your start up built on an open source.
Where is the Competitive Advantage?
How are you innovative or disruptive?
