Magento 2 is one of the leading ecommerce frameworks in the world and is used by the likes of Coca-Cola, Burger King, and Oliver Sweeney.

The platform is scalable, robust, and incredibly powerful out of the box and comes with an active community that offers a great wealth of extensions for greater functionality and improvement.

Magento 2 advantages

As you can imagine, there are many wonderful advantages for implementing the Magento 2 platform.

If you’re currently on Magento, you might like to know that Magento 2 runs 20% faster than its predecessor, which is great for both search engines and sales.

A faster checkout also means that the process of purchasing goods is also simpler in Magento 2, with far fewer steps and less information being required from the user, both of which reduce the number of abandoned carts.

As expected, the new Magento has fully adopted HTML5, which is a great upgrade from Magento, and requires JavaScript. This means that site owners have the capability to offer something new with a great amount of flexibility.

Magento 2 weaknesses

Although there are many great advantages for Magento 2 (far more than listed in the above), there are like any platform, a few disadvantages in its armoury.

The first being that themes can’t be ported, which means that you’ll need to start from the beginning, so a ground-up redesign is something to consider if you’re switching to Magento 2.

While we’re here, it’s also worth noting that not all extensions that work on Magento 1.X will function on Magento 2.

The above reasons mean that, alongside the complexity of Magento 2, great amounts of development time and costs need to be considered.

Client Reviews

  • Rob Kingdom

    We’re entering into our 3rd year of partnership with SALT during which time they have provided us with invaluable support which commonly extends far beyond their obligations.

    This is a team so driven by their passion for SEO that they do not hesitate to go the extra mile time and time again. As we enter a new phase in the development of our website we only see more involvement for SALT in helping us achieve our goals.

  • Ali LeClerc

    Working with Reza and the SALT team was a game changer for us. From a business perspective, our website inbounds more than doubled over a period of 6 months with relevant, highly targeted traffic. Reza and the team took the time to understand our very niche, technical space to give us specific direction on web content, and the results speak for themselves. I’d recommend SALT to anyone looking for a real partner when it comes to SEO engagement – not to mention that the team is genuinely a pleasure to work with. I look forward to a continued partnership with Reza and the SALT team as long as I have SEO needs (which I’d imagine will be for a very long time).

  • Elenitsa Staykova

    SALT’s dedication to our projects and their technical know-how were superb.

    They really went the extra mile and took the time to understand our business, never applying one-size-fits-all solutions. They have added concrete and measurable value to our business.

    They are professional, confident, insightful, and keeps up-to-date with Google algorithm changes. Most importantly, they are a pleasure to work with! Looking forward to collaborating with them again in the future.
