Frequently Asked Questions

How can Magento be leveraged for your ecommerce business?
  • There are a handful of ways your company can leverage Magento development services. For one, our Magento agency can build a user-friendly and mobile-friendly ecommerce website for your business.

  • Our certified web developers can also optimize your site's checkout experience with multiple payment options, set up an orders archive, create an FAQ page, implement product review incentives, and set up personalized promotions based on your customers' account info and purchase history.
What is the main benefit of the Magento ecommerce platform?
The primary benefit of Magento website development is creating a better user experience (UX) that ultimately leads to a boost in online sales. An optimized UX comes down to design, and the Magento platform provides your brand with the latest, most innovative capabilities and features for creating the best possible experience for the customers shopping your ecommerce store.
What kind of companies choose Magento as their ecommerce platform?
  • Magento is one of the top ecommerce platform choices for merchants worldwide, accounting for about 10% of all online stores. B2C and B2B companies from virtually everywhere use the platform, including some of the largest, most prominent brands, as well as small businesses and startups.

  • In some cases, smaller merchants may not fully grasp the value Magento's layout and features can provide their business. Opting for a platform with more rudimentary capabilities can make it harder to attract potential customers, keep them there long enough to make a purchase, and encourage your existing customers to come back.

  • No matter what type of ecommerce company you have, a solid website is key. And since Magento is an open-source platform and content management system (CMS), your site can be built to meet the unique needs of your brand.
Why do big brands use Magento?
  • Lots of major brands use Magento development services, thanks to its impressive list of features and capabilities that cater to larger enterprises. Some of the most prominent companies include Ford, Jaguar, Chrysler, Coca-Cola, HP, Canon, Helly Hansen, Timberland, Sigma Beauty, Nine West, Bed Bath & Beyond, Oakley, Nespresso, Timex, and Le Creuset.

  • Big names from our portfolio include Ray-Ban and Toms, which called on Guidance to develop their sites on the Magento Enterprise platform. Guidance delivered an optimized Magento Enterprise Edition 1.13 site for Anastasia Beverly Hills and Intex. We seamlessly moved Vince Camuto over to Magento Commerce 2 and created a Magento 2.3-powered ecommerce solution for Hearst. We also helped Kate Somerville upgrade its site to Magento Enterprise Edition with a highly customized Magento Admin home page.

How does Magento's cost compare to other platforms?
  • The cost of Magento is higher than other ecommerce platforms like BigCommerce and Shopify. However, the platform is notably rich in features, and the price can end up paying for itself if you take advantage of its valuable capabilities.

  • You'll get the most out of the platform when you work with a Magento development agency like Guidance. We have the experience, insight, and tools needed to determine which features will benefit your brand the most and effectively implement them for long-term success.

  • Other support features include SSL security assistance for front-end and back-end orders, support for special pricing, international support for multiple currencies and tax rates, support for native mobile applications, and support for a broad range of checkout capabilities.
What's involved in a Magento migration? Do we need to migrate to the latest version?
  • A Magento migration involves reviewing your current website's extensions, building and preparing your new online store, thoroughly testing your new site, and using the Magento Data Migration Tool to migrate your site. While these are the basic steps, the process is relatively complex. That's why we recommend working with a Magento website development company like Guidance on the transition.

  • You don't have to migrate to the latest version of the platform. However, a Magento migration is a great opportunity to assess your company's needs and consider upgrading to a more advanced program.
