Why do Retailers need to move
away from Magento 1?

As we all know, Magento has announced the ‘End of Life’ for its Magento 1.x version with effect from June 2020. What this translates into is that Magento would provide no new features, no official support, and no security updates/patches will be rolled out for Magento 1.x merchants around the globe June 2020 onwards. The ‘End of Life’ countdown for Magento 1.x has started.

Merchants on 1.X Magento have two options; either stick to the Magento ecosystem by upgrading from Magento 1.x to Magento 2 which in itself is a humungous activity or migrate to Shopify.

Customers today expect a buy anywhere experience When they want it, how they want it, and fast and that’s where Shopify stands out from other e-Commerce hosted solutions.

Why Migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2

Magento 2 is also more powerful than Magento 1 in many aspects. Here are some of the improvements in M2 which make this upgrade even more useful for your business:

Magento 2 offers some really helpful features like the Enhanced Indexer which will help you increase the query performance speed that will eventually improve your store’s performance.
The Progressive Web App (PWA) Studio by Magento 2 offers its users the ability to turn your online website into a fully functional mobile application.
Features like reduced load time along with a responsive front end make the search engines fall in love with Magento 2.
Magento 2’s ElasticSearch feature helps improve the quality of your website by giving you a unique search experience on your e-shop.
