Want to prevent your Prestashop from crushing? 5 issues to watch out

How does your average Monday morning start? If you’re an e-store owner, it probably looks quite the same every time. You open your eyes and check your phone for emails to see if there are any urgent issues. Then you rush to make some coffee (because you’ll need a LOT of energy to process a bunch of tasks you have in the pipeline). You open your laptop and start analyzing all those website stats: bounce rate, session time, traffic, number of buyers, new purchases...

Now imagine this: one day you open your laptop and realize that your website... has crashed! You frantically run the numbers in your head to calculate the losses you will suffer while your e-store is down. 

 

Why conducting a WooCommerce audit might be your best decision ever

Why conducting a WooCommerce audit might be your best decision ever

It goes without saying that having a speedy online store is essential to converting your visitors into buyers. Currently, an average website load time is 2-5 seconds. However, you should keep in mind that each second beyond 2 seconds might increase your bounce rate, which will inevitably affect your sales.

Recent reports have shown that 40% of internet users say they abandon the site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to open it. Thus, if you notice your Woocommerce site becomes slow or notice any changes in the bounce rate, the best decision, in this case, is to conduct a thorough website audit and find the core reason behind these issues. 

Is your Magento-run website too slow: 6 tips to speed up your Magento webshop.

Is your Magento-run website too slow?

With more than 250,000 websites, Magento content management system (CMS) remains the most popular tool for running attractive interactive e-stores. High level of flexibility and a whole bunch of useful features are just a few benefits that Magento delivers to its users.

Of course, just like everything else, Magento is not perfect. Multiple extensions and a few other flaws often make Magento-based websites slow, which might significantly affect the bounce rate and performance of your online store. When the websites running on Magento 2 become too slow on the local host, most business owners rush into changing the hosting, which is not always helpful. That is why we recommend that you consider a couple of other options before you run away from your hosting service.

If you experience any issues with the speed of your website or you suffer revenue losses, the best course of action is to define bottlenecks and solve all of the technical issues that affect them.

How to launch an online store: Top 10 eCommerce platforms of 2020

People shop online more than ever before and if you want to sell your products or services, you obviously need a good online store. If you run your business offline, you need to switch online as soon as possible - and it takes time and effort. If you already have an online business, you may need to prepare your store for an increased traffic flow. 

There are many eCommerce platforms available on the market - some are DIY-style, and for some you need to hire professional developers. In any case, the platform needs to be reliable, fast and customer-friendly. It is also likely that you will need professional help at some point.

Here is what a platform should include to enable you to launch a new web store:

  • Scalable and reliable web hosting that provides site visitors with the maximum speed of request handling and enables your site to work 24/7/365
  • Software for processing online payments that will minimize your transaction costs
  • Point of Sale (POS) tools if you have to continue with offline payments
  • eCommerce platform should meet the specific requirements of your business
Software Estimates are Hard

Ask Your Developer: Estimates

During the last 7 years at Mementia, I’ve spent a lot of time talking to people who weren’t happy with their developers. In fact, almost nobody is.

One interesting thing about the unhappy ones is the that they are not sure if that is the new normal, or if there is something actually wrong with their support, maintenance, or development partners.

There are some very simple questions you can ask your web development partners that will help you determine where you are in terms of quality and value for money.
