The adventure with Magento for web payment came to a crashing end faster than I thought. Like my previous post explained, Magento is extremely powerful and highly configurable. However it doesn’t lend itself to ease of deployment or management.
It has just way too many settings and configurations that could drive even a mad man insane. For the middling developers, the structure is bloated and cumbersome with thousands of files and annoying folder structure.
So I’m giving up on it for a while to try another approach. Maybe it would be osCommerce, OpenCart, etc. my research should tell me. But whether I like it or not, we have to crack this online payment experiment.
In the midst of my frustration, I have left my friend, fellow executive guinea-pig extremely angry and taciturn.
But it seems I’m not alone. As far back as 2009, Magento has been driving people nuts.
