What is your impression of this tool that is praise around the World? The answer to that question may be influenced by each one experience. In spite of what we think, the truth is that many businesses around the world make billions out of it. The purpose of this article is to give you some tips that can help you to enjoy using the Magento Platform.
What is Magento platform?
Magento platform is a Content Management Systems specially design for e-commerce. I particularly like Magento for its flexibility. You can, for example, create custom plugins or have access to unlimited resources around the world. Magento also has a large community of developers working daily to always provide the best. Nevertheless, depending on how we use the tool, it can easily become a living hell. That is the reason why working with experts or constantly ready documentation can help to understand much about its features.
take advantage of Magento platform features
As a developer, we encountered many challenges while working on Magento projects. I do believe that sharing those with you might help to be more efficient or aware. These are some tips that can help.
Most of the Magento issues start when we fail in our server configuration. As a matter of fact, I had a chance to work on some projects where some Magento features stopped working because of the server. If you are used to updating your store with the latest versions, checking your server will avoid trouble.
Your store automation process
Magento already has some built-in tools that can help to automate some tasks. You can for example use products import feature to import as many products as you want. If you use those build in tools, you will surely avoid some stress. I will also recommend to always refer to Magento documentation. Magento documentation contents all you need to know about the software.
It requires a lot of investment
to fully run an online business. And hence, to avoid long-term trauma, make sure that your third-party software provider updates their tool regularly. The reason is that Magento updates their systems all the time. I, for example, had a chance to work with a company that could not update their store for quite a long time to the Magento 2 version. Even though there were willing, their third-party software could not handle the latest Magento versions.
