Intro: Before we decided on the Magento e-commerce software for ranarosa, we did extensive research into themes and plugins for WordPress.

This client approached SO WP with the idea to set up an online shop for LED lighting products in Spain. Any other details on what to sell exactly and how the site should come to look were unclear.

Before we decided on the Magento e-commerce software for ranarosa, we did extensive research into themes and plugins for WordPress. However, client has five product variations, 2 languages (Spanish and English), wants faceted search and tiered pricing and we have come to the conclusion that for such criteria and at the time WordPress wasn’t the right choice.

Open source ecommerce software such as Magento does all these things out of the box without the need for additional plugins. The only two additional plugins we installed were a lightbox plugin to create a photo overlay effect and a blog plugin.
