Magento Community Edition is open source eCommerce software used to power hundreds of thousands of online stores. It can be downloaded for free and is most frequently used by developers and small businesses. The core code can be modified by developers and enhanced by installing application extensions from the Magento Connect marketplace.
Community Edition users will want to have access to their own Magento experts, since Magento does not provide technical support for this software. Answers to many technical questions are available on the Magento Forum. Our open source community is growing and engaged to help support running your online store.
Are You a Large or Growing Merchant?
For large and growing businesses that require maximum performance and scalability, deeper out-of-the-box feature set and capabilities, technical support and account management, consider Magento Enterprise Edition.
