Hence, the addition of any new function in your e-commerce store becomes easier.
2. MVC Architecture: MVC stands for Model View Controller. In MVC, the model maintains the data. View operates in displaying the data where as the controller creates the connection between the model and view. Implementing the most popular programming architecture MVC, Yii makes it easier for the developer to change and modify separate parts of the program without any further modification of the rest. This makes developing a complicated e-commerce website simple and faster than ever.
3. Data Access Objects (DAO): Perhaps one of the best features available in Yii, data access objects provides an inclusive API code to access data, which is stored in multiple database management systems.

Hence, there is no need to write SQL queries every time in the process of development.

Every single property or method is documented in an organized manner in Yii.

This prevents the website from getting attacked or affected by the SQL injection, cross-site request forgery (CSRF), cross-site scripting (XSS) and cookie tampering. This feature of Yii has made it one of the most reliable frameworks for a huge number of users. However, manipulation of the authorization system is also possible according to the requirement of the client.
7. Form Validation: One of the essential parts of a website is working with form and its validation. In Yii, form validation can be done by connecting the forms with models or database tables. Moreover, the users can set their own validation rules for model according to the specific project they are working on. If a validation rule is set with a user name, any form submitted with an empty user name field will automatically show up as an error. Also, Yii enables various widgets to help in the process of collecting the form input.

The user can easily send AJAX reports with the AJAX buttons that are inbuilt in Yii. These tools help the developer to develop a website really fast without making any error. The templates for model, form, extension etc. make the web development fast and properly organized.
All the features mentioned above along with many others like error handling, extensive library, testing etc. make Yii the most preferred one among the developers for creating advanced e-commerce websites.
