Success Story: Why we chose Magento 2

We live in the reality when the drastically changing market dictates the rules of behaviour. If we want to succeed in attracting new customers and retaining the old ones, we need to analyse the market situations as well as follow new evolving rules.

A key factor to be among leaders in e-commerce area is choosing an exact platform to provide better, faster and stronger user experience. How to choose the best e-commerce platform among those that are offered nowadays and what are the main criterias for that? At the very first point you should ask yourself some questions:

  • Stock Size: Make sure you’re paying the smallest amount of money for services you’re getting. Consider the stock size and compare it with required payments. If it’s ok, then you’ve got the right thing. Many businesses will provide alternative payment methods for just a couple of products.
  • What is it that you're selling: digital or physical goods? Look over the platforms that are along with your product needs. For example, it makes all the difference when thinking about shipping costs, etc,.
  • Payment Method. Unfortunately not all eCommerce platforms favor 3rd party payment processors. Nowadays, the easiest way to proceed payments is PayPal, but not every platform may handle it.
  • Self-Hosted or Hosted. Most eCommerce platforms provide the ability to modify your store within a live environment. If you feel you're confident in modifying the look of your online store (on regular basis), look for platforms that will enable you to have a self-hosted version of the store.
  • Payment Plan. Select the platform that best suits your budget. Some platforms offer monthly payments, others are relying on giving a small percentage of a sale to the company that is hosting your platform. It’s up to you to decide which one is better.

The above image features plenty of online store platforms that you can try and read more about. At this point, all that is left to do is to pick one of the most popular eCommerce platforms available today, and begin experimenting/working with it – until you find something that is the best. Nevertheless, our team wants to share its own opinion and point out an option which should be considered without any doubts.

Having worked on one of the latest projects we successfully overcame the challenge to manage a controller for counting promo campaigns on Magento 2 platform.The most tricky part was to find a possible way of required action as default features of this platform make impossible to do so.

Having spent quite enough time to search for an optimal solution we decided to suggest our own custom promo campaign extension for Magento 2. This solution is aimed to:

  • edit titles of promotions
  • control duration (days, hours, minutes)
  • set the interval to restart promo campaign

We created counter like separate block with countdown, that is default on every web page.
