Currently, there are countless E-Commerce platforms available in the market. Out of all, Magento gets the most fame. This open-source platform was released back in 2008. With brand-new updates in its previous version, Magento 2.0 was released in 2015. So if you had been planning to open up a digital storefront, getting our Magento E-Commerce Development Service is the way ahead. But before anything else, at Xcentric Services, we prefer discussing in detail the cost of launching an E-Commerce store on Magento.
How much do our Magento E-Commerce Development Services cost?
Estimating the cost of Magento E-Commerce Development in Pakistan isn’t as easy as planning other finances. It depends on countless factors. However, today, being a Magento Development Company, we’ll provide you a rough costing plan. Plus, considering that Magento offers several pricing plans, we’ll also help you choose the best-suited plan. So let’s get started!
Magento Pricing Plans Explained
Magento offers users three editions to choose from, out of which the basic plan is FREE. The enterprise edition costs users approximately $22,000 annually, and the cloud edition costs $2,000 annually – without hosting services. Though don’t worry about it, our development services will include getting you the most reliable web hosting services.
Getting more into the details of Magento’s Enterprise edition, its costing plan starts around $22,000 annually. However, the cost might increase depending on the extensions and plugins we’ll install – considering your requirements. For clients who choose to go ahead with the open-source plan, we usually splurge on extensions and plugins; to boost their online web store’s functionality.
The Types Of Magento Editions
Currently, considering the pricing tier, Magento is offering the following editions;
- Magento Open Source – Formerly known as Magento Community
- Magento Commerce – Formerly known as Magento Enterprise

Every year, Magento changes the names of these editions and adds new features to them. Now, talking about the cost, it all depends on which edition our client chooses. We’ll further discuss each one of them in detail to give you a better insight.
Magento Open Source
This open-source edition, formerly known as Magento Community, is free of cost. Mostly, we suggest small and mid-sized businesses to choose this edition. But even though it is free of cost, you might have to pay some charges. We know you have a WHY in your mind right now.

While running an online web store, it is essential to ensure the security of the customers. They’ll be the ones trusting you with their details – including credit card details. Hence, security needs to be the top-most priority. Considering that this edition of Magento isn’t compliant with PCI, we spend a little extra on securing our client’s online web store. So yes, you won’t have to worry about the security of your customers when we have your back!
As mentioned earlier, the open-source edition requires installing many extensions and plugins. Many agencies go overboard at it. Unfortunately, this slows down the performance of an online web store. However, that’s not how we do it at Xcentric Services. Before installing any plugin or extension, our team makes sure that it is the best fit. Thus, guaranteeing an effortlessly running online web store.
Even though the edition is free to install, we usually take support from the extensions available through Magento Connect. The reason behind leveraging on these extensions is giving our client the charge of their online web store. From order management to seamless navigation, multi-store abilities, and much more – We enable them with every functionality.

There’s a bitter reality about Magento E-Commerce Website Development in Pakistan. Being an agency, we’ve noticed that the paid editions perform better and faster as compared to the free edition.
