It has over 250,000 merchants across the globe selling their products using the Magento platform. As a Magento store owner, you can make the most out of your business using the Magento platform. Magento clients include top companies like Burger King, Charlotte Tilbury, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Coca-Cola, Ghirardelli, and Christian Louboutin. Magento is dedicated to staying ahead of customer trends and needs with continuous enhancements and Magento updates to the software and platform. They are committed to ensuring best in class innovation and boosting your sales while shrinking your costs. 

As certified experts in Magento, we can attest to the fluidity and comprehensiveness of their updates. Magento is dedicated to enhancing both the client and customer experience through their platform, and there are some recent Magento updates to take advantage of in the upcoming year.

Magento Updates Software With Magento 2

Magento delivers on their dedication to the constant enhancement and streamlined experience for the Magento store owner with Magento 2! They know that every detail matters when it comes to an eCommerce store; it’s essential that the storefront is the best possible experience for the customer to give the business the best possible revenue. In Magento 2, these details are updated and enhanced to target and remove any friction in the Magento merchant and customer experience.

The first update in Magento 2 is aimed at better payment functionality across all fronts. The first update gives customers the option to save their PayPal information at checkout to bypass it in the future in the hopes of higher rates of conversion for visitors to customers. Another update geared towards boosting sales is allowing guest checkouts to still save their payment information within the site/browser. That way, they don’t have to have a registered account with your eCommerce business if they don’t want to, but they can experience a more streamlined checkout by using their previous payment information. Magento 2 also utilizes Braintree software to reduce chargebacks and support calls as well as protecting your business from high-risk customers. Magento 2 has a new process using Braintree to confirm a risk decision before shipping to a potentially high-risk customer.

Magento 2 also has improvements to performance and features. First of all, Magento admin is going to be much faster when managing products with hundreds of variations. SQL media queries have gone through an optimization process for Magento 2 to make your storefront performance even more quickly than before.

Recently, Magento has acquired the technology behind Bluefoot CMS and Page Builder to enhance the Magento experience. Magento’s belief and goal with this integration was that it would improve the merchant’s experience and empower them to have more creativity and control over a variety tools to manage their site layout.

There are four main updates to increase merchant control over the content and site design of their Magento storefront. First, increased drag and drop functionality. This makes it much easier to add things like headers, images, products, and more as content by using drag and drop. Second, easier product-content integration. With this, you can just drag and drop products into pre-existing or standard content elements (like blogs or promotional pages). Third, simple third-party content integration. This makes it much easier for the merchant to integrate third-party content like YouTube videos, Google Maps, Vimeo video, and more to the various pages of their store. And last but not least, static block integration. This allows the merchant to seamlessly integrate static blocks into content areas for easier design capabilities.
