For so many years Magento 1 has served merchants with their ecommerce needs, giving them the means to market and sell their products on the online platform. But after the release of Magento 2, merchants feel conflicted about the updated platform whether it is the right fit for them or not. In this Infographic, we will show you all the good reasons you need to migrate your store to Magento 2.
Why Choose Magento 2 over Magento 1x
The release of Magento 2 from last year made the headlines for several reasons. Among the most important factors that set Magento 2 apart was speed. With the new modular structure and faster processing, the loading speed increased significantly. The average page loading speed has been increased by 50% while the checkout speed also made improvements and increased by 38%. In the past, Magento 1 qualified as a selling platform but lacked the speed to meet era appropriate ecommerce. This required redeveloping the platform ground up to enhance the loading and processing speeds. Now Magento 2 can load pages within 2 seconds and take up to 117% more orders compared to the older versions of Magento. This has enabled stores to acquire more conversions and provide enhanced user experience to their customers. With the improved coding and superior internal structure, Magento 2 can take on 2.1 million more page views in contrast to the previous versions of Magento.
All and all, Magento has raised the stakes with its new superior and faster platform. But speed is not only thing Magento took notice of. Magento 2 focused on providing un-compromised user security for data and payment gateways so that customers remain impervious to malicious attacks. Merchants can now expand their selling parameters on mobile devices as both community and enterprise editions use mobile responsive design.
