Why Choose Adobe Commerce powered by Magento vs SuiteCommerce

Posted by Pixafy Team

Are you looking for the best eCommerce solution available, and undecided about which option to choose? Two of the most popular and high-quality solutions are NetSuite SuiteCommerce and Adobe Commerce (formerly Magento Commerce).

When it comes to choosing an eCommerce solution, you need an option that will stand the test of time and allow you to connect seamlessly with other systems. To create a core for your company that runs on a single point of truth, you’ll also want a way to keep all data across your front and back end updated in real time.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions can help you marry your front and back end together, but your results will only be optimized if you have chosen the best eCommerce solution available.

Here’s why Adobe Commerce Cloud is the better choice than SuiteCommerce as a complete eCommerce and ERP integrated solution, and how to achieve your goals for your online enterprise.


SuiteCommerce can make it difficult to get started without significant outlay, either paying per module for every feature, or having to buy the most advanced version from the outset. Your costs for developing a SuiteCommerce solution to meet your needs can also be ongoing, as you’ll have to pay more for every integration as well.

In contrast, with Adobe Commerce you pay an all-inclusive price (with a tiered system) and get all of your functionality built-in. Development is cheaper because you have everything you need and won’t have to pay every time you want to add a feature. For online retailers who started out with Magento open source, Adobe Commerce Cloud is a natural next step.


SuiteCommerce was built as a basic modular plug and play for large eCommerce sites, which means that handling high volumes and payment services isn’t an issue. However, when you start doing complex configurations or want add-ons, you can break the system far too easily.

Adobe Commerce was also built to handle massive eCommerce volume but delivers a commerce cloud interface that is fully customizable. You’ll be able to configure and manage key processes throughout the presales, sales and post-sales funnel, from inventory management to shipment tracking more easily.


SuiteCommerce is fairly resistant to customization and extension integration. You can spend a lot of time trying to upgrade and add functionality only to face continual breakdown due to inflexibility.

Adobe Commerce provides access to a larger set of features out of the box, and also facilitates integration with many features not currently on the platform which can be added as extensions by your developer without interrupting the seamless experiences your customers expect.

Adobe Commerce (Magento) and NetSuite compatibility

Many SuiteCommerce users think that they are making a good digital commerce choice because of the access to NetSuite. However, Adobe has perfect compatibility with NetSuite while offering many additional benefits for both developers and the discerning consumer.

A fully customizable platform built to scale with your company

Adobe Commerce was created to be easy to work with and simple to scale, with the flexibility lacking in many other solutions. Adobe can support any and all business requirements that develop over time, delivering consistent commerce experiences as you build and grow.

Access to huge ecosystem of implementation partners & third-party extensions/connectors

With Adobe, you have access to thousands of implementation partners globally, and are connected to a range of resources who know the platforms. Additionally, there is a vast amount of enablement tools/ educational programs for Adobe merchants and internal teams looking to maximize their investment and enjoy business growth on their terms.

Tools to create superior user experiences

Adobe Experience Cloud proves a full complement of content management and personalization tools to help you create incredible user experiences. These include the Adobe Experience Manager to handle all content needs across platforms, and Adobe Analytics to help you personalize the customer experience and deliver the right product recommendation at the right time for maximized revenues. You can also leverage Adobe Sensei, which implements machine learning and artificial intelligence to enhance your marketing workflows.

Adobe Commerce merchants will also be able to access native B2B selling tools for predictable standardized integrations with no need for complex third-party customization to accomplish basic B2B functionality across your commerce platform. Retailers using the Adobe Experience platform can seamlessly accept global payments and drive better customer relationships.

Overall, whether you are a former Magento Commerce user who is now trying to decide whether or not to stay with Adobe Commerce, or a NetSuite aficionado who is toying with the idea of simply consolidating into SuiteCommerce, the former is a clear winner over the latter on multiple fronts.

When you compare Adobe Commerce Cloud and SuiteCommerce from Oracle NetSuite, from both a developer and administrative perspective, Adobe is the better option. If you want a solution that will let you start off where you are at in terms of size, and volume, then scale at your own speed to reach enterprise levels of commerce, you can’t go wrong with the more robust and flexible option delivered by Adobe.
