Organize your online store so that products are easily available. And also add visual aids to help them feel the products.

Categories are the backbone of a store. Especially if you sell a lot of stuff. Properly arranged categories help customers navigate the products. This is where themes come in handy. A great theme considers how the category and products should be organized. And also how the search function will find the products.

Magneto 2 has simplified the search capabilities a lot. And has also made it easy to add products. Along with this you can now not only add images but also product videos. This eliminates the need for any additional extensions.


Varnish has always been the go to extension for Magento Community owners. Seeing as how so many business owners need this feature, Magento 2 has added Varnish. It is now available in the out of the box store install. Just configure it and you are good to go.

Checkout process

Abandoned shopping carts is an issue faced by online stores. To help with this Magento 2 offers Instant Purchases. Customers can now buy products without having to reload their information.

The checkout page has also been revised. You can now add product images. Visual aid helps customers see what they are going to purchase.
