Improved Scalability and Speed

The speed of the Magento platform is astounding. With one instance, you can now serve 10 million views per hour which were previously unheard-of, with 200 thousand on an installation only recently upgraded from 1 year ago. In addition, Magento 2 can reduce the page load time by 30 – 50%. It also has a more robust platform than Magento 1, allowing it to handle 39% more orders per hour than its predecessor. With this increase in customer interaction, you will be able to get your message out there and sell even faster!

Enhanced Checkout System

Magento 2’s enhanced checkout process gives customers a more streamlined and enjoyable experience. With Magento 1, users had to register with their email address not to be automatically identified by the system upon placing an order; now, guests can check out without having any information needed except what they’ve already given during registration (i.e., billing address). The simplifying of this step makes it easier on both buyers and sellers because it is less likely that anything will go wrong at some point during purchase or shipment!

Search Engine Friendly

The new Magento 2 has been designed with a front end that makes it easier to browse all kinds of devices. According to an independent study, this helps the website in its search engine rankings because Google algorithms place mobile responsive websites higher than those that aren’t.

Easier Extensions Update

In Magento 2, installing extensions has been made easier. In the past, with some essential plugins in Magento 1, you would have to consult a developer for help or spend hours trying to make them work on your own just because of how complicated they were before HTML5 and CSS3; came around!

This new feature makes it much better than ever before so keep reading below about what exactly we’re talking about here today.”

Upgraded Add-To-Cart

In Magento 1, if a customer added a new product to their cart and clicked Add To Cart, the entire page would reload every time. This led many shoppers to leave frustrated at having slow loading pages or being forced onto repeat loadings before they were finished browsing for other items on sale! In contrast, though with this issue present in older versions of Magento because there were no ‘Ajax add-to carts,’ it became something that could be resolved through various means. Still, now we have an even better way: The ability to offer customers more control over what happens when adding products from anywhere else within your site instead of forcing them back onto another page load – all without any additional coding needed.

Database Segmentation

The problem with the single Magento database was that if there were too many customers online, it would affect their customer experience and UI. So the new architecture of Magento 2 separates three databases: one for admins only; another containing information on stores or products managed by developers (which can be used during development); finally, a third “development” database holds product designs, etc., all designed specifically to help retailers improve conversion rates.

Magento 2 provides a split database solution to prevent any negative impact on the website. There are three categories: Product Data, Checkout, and Orders that help scale your potential by segregating each area’s data which prevents them from colliding with one another at all times!

I had tried unsuccessfully to create my own website and decided to seek professional help. I met with Chris and explained what I wanted. He listened to my needs and concerns and went away and built me a website that I love. They’re a great team of people to work with and have tons of experience working with people like myself. Their patience with me and desire to see me succeed has made the working relationship stress free and I couldn’t recommend MGC Agency any higher.

I had avoided creating a website for 2 years as I was nervous about trying to explain my vision of what I wanted but also worried about the cost of something of this nature. Chris made it easy for me from the point we met putting me at ease, totally understood my vision of how to represent by brand and business and the cost was well within what I had expected. And they didn’t disappoint on what they delivered…..they are totally professional and I am over the moon with my experience.

Redesigned Admin Interface

Magento 2 offers a powerful admin experience with an improved user interface with easy navigation primarily designed for non-technical users.

Easier Admin Navigation

To make it easy for new users, Magento 2 has implemented a simplified interface that will be more intuitive and user-friendly. As a result, Magento 2 is an excellent choice for users who are new to e-commerce. Even without any programming experience, you can still navigate and understand the interface thanks to its straightforward navigation system, making it easier than before when managing stores in Magento 1.

Magento’s simplicity has been one of its best qualities ever since version 1 was released many years back, so we’re excited about this change which will bring many more benefits such as increased security, among others!

Product Uploads Are Much Easier, And Customisation Is More Extensive

Magento 2 makes uploading products a lot easier for both customers and admins. With its step-by-step guide, it is now possible to upload the perfect product in minutes with just one click of your mouse! Not only that, but users can also add video or photos, which will make any future browsing experience more exciting than ever before and give them even more reasons why they should buy from you instead of at their next store visit.

In the new Magento 2 platform, customization of products becomes easier for both store owners and customers. With a user’s past preferences recorded in this system, they can be matched with offers tailored specifically to their tastes, making them more likely to purchase on these terms as well!
