Why You Need To Upgrade To Magento 2

It’s been almost 3 years since Magento 2 was officially released, but there are still plenty of business owners who haven’t taken advantage of the upgrade yet. Already the leading eCommerce platform, the new system promised a faster, simpler customer experience and an improved user interface: two things that it’s certainly delivered.

But what exactly are the main benefits of upgrading from Magento 1 to 2?

Magento 1.9 Is Becoming Unsupported

Perhaps the biggest reason to upgrade to Magento 2 is because Magento 1.9 is set to become unsupported over the next two years. Initially, Magento had announced that 1.9 support would end on November 18th 2018 but, after realising it just wasn’t possible for developers to switch over so quickly, this firm date was abandoned.

But the cut-off date is on its way, so upgrading to Magento 2 will soon become a necessity, rather than a choice.

Significantly Improved Performance

Magento 2 has performance at its very core, and you might just find yourself feeling a little blown away by the things it can do. For example, the upgraded system can handle more orders at one time, deliver unbelievable server response times and offers a much faster checkout process.

Of course, such impressive performance is bound to make your website more enjoyable to use, which will ultimately encourage users to shop with you and learn more about what you have to offer.

Even Better User Experience

Magento has always been renowned for delivering excellent UX, but things have gotten even better with its 2.0 system. The upgrade offers a smoother checkout journey, improved on-site search functionality and is now tailored to enhance mobile UX.

This all adds up to an unrivalled user experience on both mobile and desktop devices. Magento has cemented itself as the leading eCommerce platform currently available, and the 2.0 improvements undoubtedly make things quicker and easier for the user.

The web design industry is always evolving, with changing user trends and developing technology constantly altering the landscape. Well, Magento 2 is your chance to ensure you can use these developments to your advantage and stay one step ahead of your competitors.

When Should I Upgrade To Magento 2?

Since support for Magento 1 is due to end over the next 18 months or so, we advise you start looking at upgrading to Magento 2 as soon as possible.
