Magento is well known on the internet as a good platform for all ecommerce websites. It is primarily used as an ecommerce platform by many large companies, the world over.
Magento is essentially a database type of web platform, allowing companies to store information about their products, as well as list them for sale with pricing and discounts as they choose. It is a great way to sort your inventories, with good detail to include.
It is a relatively complicated system, so is not always suitable for complete beginners, in which case it might be better to get a professional web designer to help set up and manage the site. If you are already proficient in web design and code such as html and css, then Magento should be fairly simple for you to pick up and use.
