Magento Community Edition has an Open Source FREE eCommerce platform to power your business

Perhaps only for developer use ....

Magento Community Edition is perfect if you're a developer or tech-savvy merchant that wants to explore the flexibility of the Magento platform. You can modify – and even contribute to – the core code and engage with our passionate community for support and guidance.


Open source software

Free to download

Community-based support

Magento Community Edition

Magento Community Edition is open source software and can be downloaded for free. Developers can modify the core code and add features and functionality by installing extensions from the Magento Connect marketplace.

Businesses using Community Edition to run their stores 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 our user forum.

Small businesses that prefer to have access to technical support and a more comprehensive feature set should consider Magento Go, our "commerce in the cloud" solution. Mid-large size businesses that need support, additional features and our best performance should consider Magento Enterprise Edition.
