The Benefits of Migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2

One in four businesses across the world choose Magento 2 as their eCommerce platform. Though it was released as far back as 2015, many companies continue to use the outdated and problematic Magento 1 version. Because of the many issues with Magento 1, it’s critical that businesses upgrade to the newest version to ensure that their customers’ online experience is fluid and keeps them coming back. Unfortunately, most companies do not have the technical expertise nor the resources to successfully complete the migration on their own. Many have tried, and have lost significant revenue as a result of their extended downtime while attempting to resolve migration issues. Guidance can perform this process for you seamlessly, minimizing downtime so that your bottom line is not adversely affected and you do not lose the hard-earned confidence of your customer base.

Magento 2 Offers These Key Benefits:

  •         Security patches and updates are routinely released from the developer, with continued support. Magento 1 is no longer supported and so as problems and conflicts arise, patches are not available to resolve issues.
  •         Better performance. On average, Magento 2 websites run 20% faster than Magento 1 websites. By and large, customers demand that the ecommerce sites they interact with should be clearly navigable and intuitive. Another advantage to having a website that performs well is that it can vastly improve its rank in search engine results.
  •         Optimized checkout process. Magento 1 requires a customer to fulfill six steps before their transaction is complete. By contrast, Magento 2 only requires a two-step checkout process. It also offers an Instant Purchase option which offers customers a faster checkout process for subsequent purchases. This in itself has been proven to increase sales.
  •         Mobile device friendly. Magento 1 fails to provide visitors an optimum experience on mobile devices but Magento 2 prioritizes mobile commerce. With more and more people primarily using cell phones to access the web, having a mobile-friendly website is critical.
