Making the switch to Magento 2 [on.click VLOG]

With a significant proportion of all Magento powered websites yet to migrate to Magento 2, we thought we’ve covered the case for migration for some time. In our latest on.click Vlog – we hear from Senior SEO Marketing and Content Executive, John Warner, about the need for change



Used by approximately 12% of all eCommerce sites on the web (according to CloudWays), with more than a quarter of a million sites powered by Magento or Magento 2 (source: Magento.com) the importance of this platform cannot be ignored. It currently handles more than $155 Bn in transactions every year, making it no great surprise that Adobe acquired it for $1.68 Bn in 2018.

However, despite Magento 2 having been released in 2015, there remain a substantial number of sites still using version 1.14 and below. While these sites have no doubt performed perfectly well in the interim, it became a matter of concern when Magento announced in late 2018 that it would be withdrawing support for version 1 in June of 2020.

Why is Magento 2 Migration important?

While there are a host of them, some of the main reasons to consider such a migration include:

  • Faster loading
  • Quicker check out process
  • Better security
  • Better PWA implementation
