The eCommerce software with the largest market share continues to be Magento. Out of all the eCommerce sites detected, 26% are attributed to the platform.
This edition sees Zen Cart losing almost 2,000 sites and dropping significantly to the 4th most popular software. While we can expect that some sites have migrated platform, this large a change is more likely due to movement of sites into, and out of, the top 1 million since the last survey. To account for this, future editions will include all previously surveyed sites.
This brings VirtueMart to be the second most popular ecommerce package in the Alexa Top 1 Million. This is despite the observation that numbers have dipped slightly from 3,657 to 3,324.
On trend from the previous surveys, osCommerce loses further market share and now represents 7% of the ecommerce landscape.
Large increases are seen this month for Prestashop (+14%) and Open Cart (+39%).
Turning to the top 100K busiest sites according to Alexa, 1,632 stores were detected. In this section of the survey we are expecting more enterprise-focussed shopping cart solutions.
The results of which show that Magento continues to have the most stores in the top 100K, with 468 stores. Second and third most popular in this category are the traditional Enterprise products IBM WebSphere and ATG. This month sees Hybris added to the survey and 62 sites in the top 100K were found to be on the platform.
