Magento 2 Features

Here at Forix Web Design, we’ve been closely watching the development of Magento 2. Merchants want to know what’s new in Magento 2, and what kind of features, functionality, and improvements can be expected from General Release. After diving into the beta, here’s what we found.

Magento 2 Performance Improvements

  • Full page caching on both Magento 2.0 Community and Magento Enterprise 2.0.
  • Magento 2 Database – Standalone database for order management and checkout.
  • Compatibility with mySQL cluster.
  • Magento 2.0 is faster out of the box for end users browsing the site, and faster adding products to the cart than the current Magento 1.x platform.

Magento 2 Admin Improvements

  • Customizable Admin Product Grid.
  • Bulk images for products: Apply unique images by attribute to each SKU, or apply a single set of images to all SKUs.
  • Bulk Pricing.
  • Create Product Configurations. In Magento 2.0, you can use more of a visual editor to create attribute values, including checkboxes.

Magento 2 Checkout

  • Zip Code has been moved ahead of City/State form fields. City/State form fields are pre-populated based on Zip code.
  • Account Creation is now at the end of the checkout process. Account creation now simply saves the information that was entered in the checkout process.
