Replatforming to Magento
If you’re an eCommerce merchant, there will likely come a time when your current store begins to fall behind industry standard, and your current platform might be one of the reasons. Moving forward to a new platform which offers better performance and more flexibility can be a difficult plunge to take, especially considering the time, money and effort which has gone into your current eCommerce store. You might also be dreading the process of migrating product/customer/order data, or worried that your SEO ranking will take a hit. Regardless, a time will come that you have to weigh up the risk and rewards of platforming, and make the best decision for the future of your online business.

When to Consider Replatforming to Magento?
Magento is a powerful open source platform – perfect for merchants that are looking to scale up and make the most of custom functionality. At Web’s The Word we pride ourselves on doing anything and everything Magento – we truly believe that with the right time and effort, the platform allows us to achieve anything that a merchant wants to implement on their store. Here are some key reasons that a merchant might consider replatforming to Magento:
Your current platform does not support a required functionality:
This is a leading reason that people approach us about migration to Magento / Magento 2. Not every platform is so flexible, while Magento has a massive range of extensions available on its marketplace which can be installed to further enhance what the platform is capable of. If you require a specific functionality, there’s a very high chance that it’s available in default Magento or via an extension – if not, we’re capable of bringing custom functionalities to life.
Your business growth has been capped:
Not every eCommerce platform is suitable for businesses of all sizes, and not every platform offers the scalability that Magento offers. For instance, if you’re looking to expand internationally, it’s best to commit to a platform which specialises in international eCommerce – as Magento 2 does.
Your website is not responsive:
Responsiveness is a key quality for any eCommerce store. If your website doesn’t load or display properly on a smartphone or tablet, you risk leaving a bad taste in the mouths of a large portion of visitors. Magento 2 offers responsive design themes, meaning you don’t have to spend extra time and money creating a brand new version of your existing website purely for mobiles and subsequently maintain both versions.
You’re spending too much on fees:
Some eCommerce platforms on the market will milk you financially, charging you based on the number of products listed or as a percentage of orders received. Magento is different, allowing you to grow your business without constantly seeking a piece of the pie. There are no monthly packages or tiered pricing; only Magento 2 Commerce Edition comes with annual fees.
You operate more than one store:
Magento allows merchants to manage multiple stores from one simple admin panel, from a single Magento account. This can drastically save time in comparison to trying to run several stores from different admin panels. It’s a significant advantage of Magento, and worth considering if you’re looking to commit to a platform that can support multiple storefronts.
You are losing sales due to poor customer experience:
If sales aren’t what they could be and you’re getting reports of a poor customer experience on your website, it might be time to consider your options in terms of correcting this. Magento comes packed with marketing possibilities to assist you in cross selling and upselling to provide customers with a personalised user experience and ultimately enhance your sales.
