Last Call: Migrate from Magento 1 Today

2 Min Read
Morgan Hipps

Attention! The time has come to set a migration plan for your move to Magento Commerce 2. In June 2020, Magento Commerce 1 will be sunsetting– meaning, no further updates, support or security coverage will be dedicated to the platform. This can leave your site vulnerable and outdated. The performance of your site is crucial to converting customers. According to research by Google, 53% of visitors will abandon a site that takes over three seconds to load. So if your site feels slow and outdated you risk losing the majority of your visitors. 

 

 

Migrating to Magento Commerce 2 can be the perfect opportunity to improve the experience of your site and implement CX enhancements that can drive more conversions. 

ERICA MAZZUCATO, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Corra 

 

Corra’s clients routinely see a significant increase in revenue when they migrate their site. Delta Galil (owner of 7 For All Mankind and Splendid) saw a remarkable lift in revenue when they migrated with Corra. 

BY MIGRATING TO MAGENTO 2, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO:

 

  • Handle larger volumes of SKUs and daily orders 
  • Create better mobile designs and site experiences 
  • Manage and produce your content easier 
  • Leverage the improved search and SEO features 
  • Reduce the number of steps to checkout to combat cart abandonment

 

PERFORMANCE = CONVERSIONS

 

From a performance standpoint, Magento 2 enables faster performance out-of-the-box. This is an important factor to consider because customers are more likely to leave your site if they experience long page load times. With Magento 2.3 and beyond you will see improved indexing performance through sharding and parallel processing of indexers to reduce the indexation times. Magento has said this significantly reduces the indexation times by over 60% to support large sites and quicker product updates. For example, when Corra migrated St. John Knits to Magento 2, their page load times reduced from 9 seconds to 4 seconds.

 

Migrating to Magento 2 provides an enormous opportunity for retailers to access improved site performance and updated features and functionality. It’s also a chance to review your current ecommerce practices and refresh for the future. Setting your

organization up for long term success on the Magento 2 platform requires preparation, and now is the time to start.
