The COVID-19 constraints have made it evident that businesses without an online presence are actually ‘locked down’. The coronavirus has not only disrupted lives but also businesses. Businesses therefore need to focus on agile and streamlined processes that allow merchants to quickly adapt to new market circumstances.
Magento, the most popular ecommerce platform has ensured that online stores that are based on Magento get additional features required to handle business in the face of a lockdown. Here are a few updates on how:
Magento recently launched a Business Acceletation page. It curates a wealth of guidance and best practices for online stores. It also gathers resources from around the global ecosystem to help merchants navigate these uncertain times. Merchants and online store owners can set themselves up to not only survive this uncertainty, but also plan ahead for sustained success.
Among the other announcements are – new scenario deployment process for Magento Commerce hosted on Cloud infrastructure. As of Magento 2.3.5, all core payment integrations, except PayPal have been deprecated. Merchants should transition to their corresponding Marketplace extensions.
Magento has always been on the forefront of ecommerce and new features that support merchants to offer exemplary services to customers are rolled out as times and trends change. These were a few trend setting features in times of crisis that merchants should know about and implement as necessary for their online stores.
