acidgreen was one of the first official Magento Partners in Australia. With over 15 years of eCommerce experience, we have delivered over 200 online stores, including M2 Upgrade installations. Most of all, we pride ourselves on delivering only the best quality Magento ecommerce sites to our B2B and B2C clients.
Why Do You Need an M2 Upgrade?
At its core, Magento was built as a flexible, interactive user-friendly platform. It was designed so users could create their online stores utilising a multitude of functions available with pre-made extensions. Magento currently holds 14% of the ecommerce market share online, and that percentage is set to spike with the rise and popularity of Magento 2.
Magento 2 was officially released in Australia in late 2015, and after five years of rigorous development it launched to outdo its top performing predecessor, Magento 1.
M2 is estimated to perform up to 20% faster than M1, and due to its new Full Page Cache (FPC) software, page load speed has increased dramatically (it now takes between 1-2 seconds rather than 5-10 seconds). Faster site speed means an increase in the quality user-experience. It also helps to drive sales and consumer interaction. This offers substantial benefits to your SEO.
Upgrading to Magento 2 will include enhancements, such as:
Improved theme installation processes and integration.
Seamless third party installations.
Multi vendor solutions.
Enhanced mobile-friendly website design.
Streamlined checkout process.
Paypal and Braintree Enhancements: When considering whether or not to make the M1 to M2 upgrade it is important to note one of Magento 2’s most impressive features: its enhanced integration of Paypal and Braintree. Why is this so important? PayPal and Braintree are two of the most globally renowned, secure online payment services. The simple installation of these two plugins onto your M2 site, ensures a more convenient checkout system to online consumers.

Therefore, hiring a professional to operate your Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration will minimise any risks that could occur during a site migration.

The right time was yesterday. But... it’s not too late.
Magento has announced that it will no longer support Magento 1 by the end of 2018. For the benefit of security and functionality an M2 upgrade is vital. It will ensure your ecommerce brand stays innovative and relevant.
At the end of the day, you’re looking to draw more consumers in and then keep them coming back. A Magento 2 migration audit may seem like a tedious task to perform. However, with the help of our certified developers, making the move will only improve your online brand, incrementally.
