Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source are two different versions of the same e-commerce platform. Adobe Commerce is the commercial version of the platform, which is sold and supported by Adobe. On the other hand, Magento Open Source is a free, open-source version of the platform.
Adobe Commerce is a comprehensive and adaptable platform that can be customized to fit the specific needs of retailers. It offers end-to-end solutions for managing, personalizing, and optimizing the commerce experience across all touchpoints and throughout the entire customer journey, from the initial purchase to post-purchase engagement.
One of the many benefits of using Adobe Commerce is that it seamlessly integrates with Adobe Experience Cloud, which means all of your ecommerce content can be managed in one convenient location. To clarify, this feature streamlines the content creation process and allows for more efficient management of your online store.
The benefits of Adobe Commerce versus Adobe Open Source
- One of the biggest differences is in the level of support and services. Unquestionably, with Adobe Commerce, users get access to a dedicated support team. Not only that, but also additional services like cloud hosting and managed upgrades.
- There are some additional functionalities at Adobe Commerce that are available, including a range of additional B2B functionality. At the Open Source version, this can be done by custom development and the use of extensions.
- We can seamlessly integrate software into Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source, such as ERP, PIM, POS systems, and stock and order management tools.
To conclude, while Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source share many similarities, there are some important differences to consider. Without a doubt, if you’re looking for a more robust, fully-supported e-commerce platform with advanced features and greater flexibility, Adobe Commerce can be a good choice. But if you’re comfortable relying on community support, and you are not searching for the advanced B2B functionalities that Adobe Commerce has to offer, then Magento Open Source may be a viable option. At Factor Blue, we are familiar with both versions, therefore we will help you to make the right decision that fits your business goals.

The costs of Adobe Commerce
Similar to the Magento Enterprise Edition, Adobe Commerce operates under a licensing fee structure for the use of its software. The cost of using Adobe Commerce is determined by several factors including the size of your business, your projected annual turnover, and your gross annual turnover.
In addition to the licensing fee, having an agency is necessary to build, launch, and maintain your Adobe Commerce store. Understandably, the total cost for these services will depend on various factors, including the complexity of your design, the level of integrations required, the average order value (AOV), but also the specific features.
The Netherlands and Serbia: working together remote
Our team operates from both The Netherlands and Serbia, sharing the same continent, knowledge level, and level of dedication. While some might refer to this model as nearshoring, we simply see it as working together on a remote basis. Nowadays, physical proximity is no longer a requirement for effective collaboration. Instead, we utilize modern technology to ensure that our team members can work together seamlessly, regardless of their location.
