Magento 2 – Performance is Key to a Better eCommerce

Magento Web Design

Magento 2 is ranked among the best eCommerce development platform in the world today. The developers understand that performance is the key to a better and successful eCommerce platform. Here is an overview of some of the new features in Magento 2 that are meant to boost its performance and functionality.

New Payment and Shipping Extensions

Magento two has several extensions that are designed to help business owners offer additional payment gateways to clients, Amazon Pay, Vertex, and Klarna Payments. More importantly, the extensions help vendors to do tax and shipping calculations on a cart accurately and without ruining the shopping experience.

Ability to Create Transactional Email Templates

Email marketing is one of the most powerful digital marketing strategies. With Magento 2, you can create a transactional email template for a specific segment of customers by using Dot Mailer.

Search Performance and Image Loading

The developers have made certain tweaks to enhance the speed at which images and load. This in turn boosts the overall site load time. In addition, clients can now search for products faster and without having to contact the customer care team.

Storage of Personal Data

In a bid to promote transparency, it is of paramount importance to record and keep your customers personal data such as address safe. Magento two has a dedicated payment & shipping debug log files that are meant to store this kind of information.

Ability to Run Commands during Maintenance Mode

Just like any other website, your eCommerce platform will need to be maintained regularly to ensure that all features are functioning optimally. Unlike in the past, you can now run commands such as binmagento module:uninstall and binmagento deploy:mode:set production during maintenance mode. No programming skills or experience is required to run these commands.

Organizing Bundle Products

The team has also improved the save operations to give the ability to duplicate a bundle product without stripping or removing the original bundle product from the options. This is one of the major features that will ensure that your customers get the best shopping experience.

These are some of the major improvements on Magento 2 that are meant to improve performance and functionality of your eCommerce platform.

You will also find additional extensions that you can install to improve the platform without compromising its design, load time, and efficiency. The customer care team is always available so don’t shy away from contacting them if you encounter any problem.

See what some of our customers say about us!

  • Stellar! Mike and his team overhauled my website lickety split and are always prompt to respond when I need help maintaining the site to make new changes. I appreciate Mike’s personal style of no-nonsense, straight to business, conquer the mountain approach to a goal while at the same time he has a special way to let you know he personally cares about each and every project in a way no other business owner takes time to express.

  • We have had the great pleasure of working with Mike McLeland for a number of years now. The quality of our website is fabulous. The true test is of course, does it make the potential clients want to take the time to inquire about our services? It absolutely does this. He created it so that it is easy for that potential client to decide quickly and with ease that they want to know more about us and our services. This is rare because a lot of websites in our industry in particular are extremely hard to move around once you have arrived.Additionally, Mike has a rare quality as a Web Designer. He understands who he can send an email filled with technical terms to and who he shouldn’t. The owner of our company receives the technical emails and I get the total opposite. This makes it so much easier for us to work with him.Lastly, his level of care is, ” Off the Charts!” There I no other way to describe it.I hope a lot of other businesses use his services.
