However, you will be limited by the design and the storefront. A customized Magento platform gives you flexibility and scalability. It caters to your business specific needs and unique processes which can help you scale up quickly. However, when considering building a customize Magento platform, you need to consider the followings:
- Short-term and long-term business goals
- The allocated budget
