Tuesday, April 24, 2012 12:18 PM

Today at the Magento Imagine eCommerce 2012 conference, Magento, a leading eCommerce platform and a division of X.commerce, Inc., an eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY) company, highlighted momentum made since its last conference in helping customers spur business results and announced new product features and updates.

Over the past year, the Magento community has doubled in size to 808,000 registered members and with X.commerce, there are a total of 1.1 million members in its developer community. Magento is sustaining growth through its continued investment across its full product suite, including its Enterprise Edition and its open-ecosystem solutions to its cloud-based Magento Go offering.

“From the beginning Magento has been leading the charge in empowering merchants to do what they do best: engage with their customers in unique ways and sell more products,” said Roy Rubin, general manager of Magento and chief product and customer officer of X.commerce. “Now as part of X.commerce and a member of the eBay Inc. family, not only will we accelerate our momentum but help drive the next phase of the commerce evolution.”

The growth of the Magento community has also driven the growth of Magento Connect, one of the world’s largest eCommerce application marketplaces. With more than 5,600 extensions now offered in Magento Connect – reflecting growth of 73 percent – any merchant can now customize, enhance and extend almost any area of their Magento store. Additionally, Magento saw 71 percent growth in its Solution Partner network to reach almost 400 solution partners around the world.

“As part of eBay Inc., our collective mission is to enable commerce,” said Matthew Mengerink, vice president and general manager of X.commerce. “With Magento, our goal for X.commerce remains focused on helping merchants of any size thrive in the new commerce era by inspiring, empowering and connecting them in ways they never thought possible before.
