Building the most important asset they have on a platform not designed from the ground-up for scalable SaaS (software-as-a-service) eCommerce!
That's why we recommend Shopify. Shopify IS built for eCommerce from it's very core. They offer scalable hosted plans that work for businesses of all sizes. We also love the 24/7 customer support with a friendly staff that helps you get things resolved quickly.
"Open-Source Self-Maintained" eCommerce platforms require a knowledgable team, hardware, software and a fast Internet connection. Also, if you really want to do it right, you should have redundant systems in more than one location in case of systems failures. Do you hear the money leaving your bank account?
Now consider the "Hosted / SaaS" eCommerce platform alternative. It allows you to have a manageable investment with a set cost since someone else is taking over the staff and system headaches. This setup screams "great business option"!
Here's a direct comparison of a few important differences between Shopify Plus and Magento.
