If you run a small-medium business that is looking to enrich its online store, Magento 2.0 is simply one of the best e-commerce platforms you can use. Now under the Adobe banner and known as 'Adobe Commerce', it contains high-performance features, rich scalability options and a vast support community. The Magento platform is used by more than a quarter of a million online retailers – with that number constantly growing.

As expert open source website builders, we believe in creating websites that allow our clients to bring their customers closer, shaping their shopping experiences and connecting them with their brand. With the level of competition growing year on year, it has never been as important for businesses to stand out in the online marketplace – being totally customisable, open source platforms are the way forward.

We firmly believe that there is no better customisable platform out there than Magento 2 and any eCommerce business should be using it.

What Is Magento 2.0?

Magento is an opensource project that was established in 2008 – the first version served online stores well for 8 years but with the increasing demand, the need for business growth and better performance became a necessity. This saw the original version replaced by Magento 2.0 which aimed to improve the speed and performance provided by several high-level features that can be combined with the opensource platform, thus improving conversion rates for online stores.

Why Should My Business Use Magento 2.0?

Magento 2/Adobe Commerce offers a wider range of flexible tools that makes it a great platform for your online store. With the use of Magento 2, you can manage the look, content and functionality of your store with ease.

SMEs should use Magento 2.0 because of these improved features:

  • Improved scalability and performance– Compared to Magento 1, Magento 2/ Adobe Commerce has been proven to be 20% faster on average. The use of Ajax JavaScript makes it more convenient for users to add to their shopping carts without a need for the page to be rendered. Also, the full-page caching system that's built-in has been proven to load pages much faster, thus making it scalable even for large-scale firms.
  • Easier checkouts – With Magento 2,the checking out process now only consists of two easy steps, thus creating abetter shopping experience for customers and reducing cart abandonment. It offers options for guest checkouts too, without the need for login and registration. Also, shipping rates are dynamically loaded once the customer enters their address for delivery. If you consider that Magento 1 had a 6-stepprocess in comparison, it's easy to see why the conversion rate will be higher with the new platform.
  • Highly compatible – Magento 2 is much easier to integrate with third-party tools and extensions (PayPal, etc),so will have better functionality for your store. It also offers compatibility with various other platforms – PHP frameworks, different databases and web& cloud services, making it easy and hassle-free to use.
  • Improved admin interface – Highly customisable and designed to enable admins easy accessibility to information, Adobe Commerce is far more user-friendly. This ease of use helps to vastly reduce time in managing the store – and time is money!
