Magento Migration Apprehensions? – Worry No More!

With Magento 1 reaching end of life in June 2020, merchants are very apprehensive about migrating their Magento 1 store to Magento 2 to any other e-commerce platform. So what is stopping people from making the change? Let’s take a look.

1) Overwhelming

Migrating Magento 1 to Magento 2 may seem overwhelming. You have probably gotten used to Magento 1 and don’t want to spend time learning a whole new system. Chances are, you were probably overwhelmed when you installed Magento 1 because, at the time, it was brand new to you. But that didn’t stop you from making the jump! 

While this apprehension is understandable, do not let this stop you from migrating to Magento 2. Magento 2 has so many benefits. It will run 20 percent faster than Magento 1, it has improved admin interfaces, enhances security, powerful extensions and so much more. Don’t let feeling overwhelmed stop you from making a positive change. 

2) Changes for Customers 

You may be apprehensive to migrate your Magento 1 store into a Magento 2 store because doing so will create a change for your customers. As a store owner, keeping your customers happy and satisfied is essential. However, migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2 will not only make your current customers happy but will help you acquire new customers as well. 

Magento 2 has a very user-friendly checkout process, a mobile-friendly interface, and allows customers to save their login information so they do not have to type in the information again during checkout. With these positive changes, you and your customers have nothing to worry about. Your store will continue to thrive and your customers will appreciate these new, simplified aspects of your storefront. 

3) Changes in Theme and Design 

You may totally love the way your storefront looks and you don’t want to make any changes. That is totally fine, but you may change your mind when you see the new themes and designs in Magento 2. There are five new themes that come with Magento 2 that will love.
