If you’re new in Magento and feel kind of lost, this book is definitely for you. “Instant E-Commerce with Magento: Build a Shop” begings with a very good explanation about the Magento install process and the basic configurations to apply, an essential subject when working with this platform since you can have a very annoying headache if this isn’t set correctly.
This e-book is targeted to people who haven’t a deep knowledge about e-commerce platforms or MVC (Model View Controller) systems. Very useful if you are not a developer and want to have your shop online. You don’t have to be scared about the big beast Magento, this book will help you out a lot.
The Magento Admin-panel is perfectly analyzed here, and it covers all the basic and fundamental stuff you must know. I especially liked section “Catalog and Shopping Cart Price Rules”, where this great feature of Magento is explained to make it work correctly. No matter which kind of store you have, you would like to make promotion and discounts for specific kind of products. Also, of course, you will want to be very acquanted about Managing Orders, well, another reason to read this book.
