High performance without the complexity

Concord and Magento are quite different in their underlying philosophies. While Magento is open-source with a paid tier, the cost of customizing the platform and the need for third-party extensions is quite high.

The Verdict

Unmatched flexibility

Concord delivers features and customization options previously only available to larger businesses using the Paid Magento Commerce/Cloud Plans. 

Built-in features vs. extensions

Concord doesn't require third-party extensions to address the core functionality required by growing businesses

Growth without limits

Concord merchants don’t have to worry about hitting a ceiling in platform capabilities.

Key Differentiators

Why opt for Concord

Here’s a feature-by-feature comparison of some of the differentiators in more detail.

Magento

Magento developers are an expensive lot. The cost savings realized by using an open-source platform are all but lost to the high cost of eveloper resources. The code quality of the customizations is seldom made according to the right specifications posing a big challenge to merchants using Magento.

Concord

Concord’s in-house developers ascertain the needs of your business to build secure, high-quality microservices that are infinitely scalable. Our development teams work with absolute transparency helping you get the features and capabilities your business needs, all the time, every time.

Magento

While Magento is good for smaller online shops, larger enterprise features are available only in Magento Commerce Cloud which can cost as much as $40,000 a year.

Concord

Built on a microservices architecture, Concord is infinitely scalable. All the features are built on the premise of a fast-growing enterprise.

Magento

An open-source platform, Magento still has a lot of code quality issues with several support tickets staying open for several years. Merchants have to hunt for solutions and quick fixes using a combination of Quora and online support forums. 

Concord

Concord believes in pristine code that is unit tested and highly reliable. Our testing methodology ensures every feature and function is tested thoroughly by an in-house testing team. We guaranteed a robust platform free of errors and vulnerabilities

Magento

Magento doesn’t provide a breadth of support types like Concord. If using Magento Open Source, you can only find answers from other experienced users and developers on Magento Forums. When you sign up for Magento Commerce and Magento Cloud, you’ll get more support through live chat and email but that is the extent of support you get. 

Concord

Concord includes world-class support. No other eCommerce platform can boast the kind of in-house support and services that Concord offers. Our onboarding teams help you migrate and launch with ease, with 24/7 chat, email and phone support for technical issues. Our support team is focused on helping you grow.

Magento

Magento themes are often missing key features that help improve conversion. As with Shopify, free themes are too basic and ultimately require plugins to customize. For less technically adept merchants, this can mean they need to hire a developer for these optimizations. 

Concord

Concord merchants can easily provide product comparisons and quick views on category pages. Our native product comparison feature makes it easy for shoppers to easily compare two or more products side by side on a single page. Offering a product quick view can make it easier for shoppers to see more information about a product without leaving the category page.

Magento

Magento lacks cart-level discounts and merchants must rely on extensions for a wide range of discount functionality including any type of cart level discounts, quantity breaks/tiered pricing, automatic discounts/pricing for specific customer groups. 

Concord

Concord merchants don’t have to worry about paying for another app or creating multiple products to troubleshoot these types of limitations. Merchants can also display their options in a wide range of styles with complete freedom. This same level of functionality would require third-party apps on Magento.

Product variants allow merchants to showcase product attributes to help upsell shoppers on features. While Magento supports a few variants per product, they are limited and working around these limits requires additional extensions that add complexity.
