Magento 2 has changed the game for eCommerce. With a myriad of features that deliver improved customer experiences and conversions, site scalability and easier administration and management, it offers you the chance to take your online business to a whole new level whilst making it easier to control.
From June 2020, Magento will stop providing support and releasing updates and security patches for Magento 1. This means that from then onwards, your Magento 1 site will unfortunately be open to failing functionality, security attacks and increased maintenance fees.
Taking action now to migrate your site from Magento 1 to 2 makes total business sense and our team of Magento development experts here at Full English have a track record in completing highly successful migrations.
Before the migration, we’ll analyse your current Magento installation, chat with you about your plans for your business and what else you’d like your store to do.
This is the perfect time for you to take a step back and have a holistic view of your whole eCommerce offering. We can use our online retail expertise to challenge and help you with ideas to ensure your new Magento 2 site starts to deliver increased conversions from day one.
We will agree a complete migration plan based on our discussions and a strategy for your new website that will outline each step of the process.
We can transfer everything from your existing site to the new system, from store settings, customer data and order history through to product data, reviews and SEO URLs.
During the migration process, your existing site design can be transferred to the new platform. However, design customisation has been massively improved on Magento 2 and we can help you to take full advantage of this opportunity to create a new or refreshed look and feel if you prefer.
Any custom extensions that were built into your current Magento 1 site will need reconfiguring to become compatible with Magento 2. Our team developers at Full English are experts in Magento extensions and we will bring yours back to life, so they work even better than before.
Once your Magento 2 store is ready, managing its publication effectively is an important process. We will carefully plan and schedule this with you to avoid downtime, keeping both you and your customers happy and ensuring that your business continues to operate like clockwork.
Our team at Full English can provide you with all the help you need for a cost effective and seamless migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2. Get in touch to have an initial chat about your current online store and next steps.
