Why the time to migrate to Magento 2 is now

This is a guest post from our partner – Limely

And how your eCommerce site will benefit from doing so.

Anyone with an eCommerce site will know that it takes a lot of work to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction and ensure steady sales and traffic. However, this is made easy when working with a great platform such as Magento 2.

At Limely, one of the main aspects of Magento that we love to shout about is its attention to giving their users nothing but the best in eCommerce specific technology. And as great as that sounds, it will unfortunately not apply to your business if you still remain on Magento 1 and stuck your head in the sand when it came to those all-important updates.

Luckily for you, it’s not too late to migrate and update! Need a little more convincing? Here are four things you are guaranteed to benefit from if you transfer your eCommerce site to Magento 2.

Outstanding Performance and Functionality

Implementing various tools and features such as built-in image compression, javascript bundling and varnish cache, the latest upgrade of Magento 2 has seen many improvements within page speed, performance and functionality.
Running 20% faster than those on M1, it provides its users with the ability to run eCommerce sites that impress and entice the user to come back time and time again.

Full Support and Security

If your eCommerce site remains on Magento 1, your website could be in danger! All available support and updates for Magento 1 sadly ended in June 2020, meaning your site won’t be able to keep up with the ever-changing trends or benefit from the latest improvements in Magento’s cybersecurity – leaving it outdated and defenceless.

Magento 2 not only has tons of guidance and support but keeps its finger on the pulse in order to develop various upgrades and updates to keep up with the latest innovations in eCommerce technology. It’s a no brainer!

A Smooth and Efficient Check-out

In the latest version of Magento 2, their previous 6 step checkout has been reduced to an easy-breezy 2 step system. This, alongside a new Instant Purchase feature, drastically cuts down the time between browsing and purchasing, allowing users to quickly and efficiently purchase your products.

Access to Fetchify’s Services
