Magento development can be a little challenging sometimes. However, identifying the challenges and knowing the right ways to resolve them can make things simpler for the developers and here’s the article to help you out with this shared by an expert of a leading Magento development company.
Magento is considered as the most favoured eCommerce platforms now and the credit for this goes straight to its robust and user-friendly features, and extensions. Planning to build an e-store with this platform is not at all complicated and is pretty easy-to-manage as Magento is specifically designed to create eCommerce sites and comes with all functionalities that a high-performing shopping cart needs. However, these are some challenges and issues that both developers and the merchants often encounter while developing and running the stores after development. These little issues can badly affect the store’s and the brand’s reputation resulting in more customers leaving the store at the end. This makes it imperative to identify these challenges while developing the store and resolving the same then and there to avoid any kind of negative impact later on.
However, if you are an eCommerce business owner and is planning to get a flawless store built for your business, partnering with a reputed and expert Magento development company can be the best idea as reputed companies always appoint expert resources, which means you can be sure that they will create eCommerce sites free from all bugs. Expert Magento developers can identify challenges easily and can fix them instantly.
To let you know more about it and to help out developers and business merchants, a list has been prepared here with the most common challenges often faced during Magento development and the solutions to the same.
Some of the products may not appear on the display pages or the store:
The most common challenge that developers and business merchants often face after the store is made to run after development is the problem with the visibility of some of the products. Some products may not be visible on the display or product pages of the site. It may also happen that some products are not visible on the category page but appear when the exact URL is typed.
Solution: - Check whether those products are in stock or out of stock first. Also, ensure that those products are enabled and also that the caches and indexes are not out of date. Make sure to list out those products in the relevant categories while uploading them manually. Another great idea is to set up the inventory configuration to display the products that are not in stock.
The store is not found in Google search results:
Not able to find the store in the Google search results is another big matter of concern. This can hamper both the reputation of the store owner and the developer.
Solution: - Implementing the best ERO strategies to make the store optimised and rank it in the SERPs is the ultimate solution to this issue. Also, investing in content marketing can propel the ranking of the site and boost its social reach at the same time.
The slow speed of the store:
Who likes to browse a slow online store? No one. And why will one wait when there are so many options available now for similar kinds of products? Yes, this means that if your store is performing or running slow, it’s a challenge for you to overcome or an issue to get fixed immediately.
Solution: - Solutions like installing cache, discarding the redundant extensions, and updating the version can help in speeding up a Magento site. Choosing a suitable hosting partner is also important for a high-performing and speedy eCommerce site.
Apart from the ones discussed above, some more challenges faced during and after Magento development are:
- Problem with the store’s admin panel login after installation
- Installed extensions are not visible or found on the front-end
- Codes are not working properly
- Errors like 503 - service temporarily unavailable
- Upgrading challenges
- Magento emails labelled as spam
Even though you may come across so many challenges during and after development, there are plenty of simple ways to overcome them ending up with customer-driven and interactive stores. Identifying them and using the right ways to resolve them at the right time is what you need.
