Magento comes with a vast range of features and functionalities that can aid business owners in successful online eCommerce development.

Before choosing Magento as an eCommerce platform, business owners should avoid the following mistakes for their online store development:

Tweak Default Settings

Magento eCommerce platform comes with default settings for title, description, and home page with other basic settings. These settings are so well defined by Magento that many business owners skip updating them. If the right content is not added in these sections , this might result in a loss in the Google rankings.

Magento XML Sitemap

Once the website is launched on the internet, sitemaps are one of the first things that Google searches on the internet. Having a proper sitemap can help you increase the ranking of your online store on popular search engines. It should be one of the basic requirements to either refresh the default sitemap on the Magento or get the new site map added to your website.

Complex Navigation

Your eCommerce store should be designed in such a way to give a smooth user experience while providing the latest innovative features. In Magento, various categories are organized on a single page with overlapped categories. Not just will it be difficult for users to comprehend the information presented on the page, it can also increase the page load time.

As a business owner, you can ask the Magento development companies to incorporate the simplest navigation in the website using Ajax controls for easy search filters.

Avoid Complicated Checkouts

We all must agree that simplicity wins in the mobile check out system. The initial process of shopping on most websites is easy, but the checkout process is plain confusing. This is when and where the users get confused and leave the cart before completing the final payment. Please do not make the mistake of a complicated check out system as it will increase shopping cart abandonment. Allow multiple payment methods to increase conversion.

Poor Customer Service

The success mantra for customer service -" Be there when they need you." Having poor customer support increases the chances of losing your consumers. Not just you lose your previous customers; it becomes difficult to get new customers in the future as well. 

To win your customers' trust, you should pay attention to excellent customer service. Customers might need support for product information during check out process or after-sales. You should be there with the customer 24/7 at every step of sales.

Since you now are aware of these mistakes, you can avoid getting stuck into issues and avoid unexpected costs and time. Following these suggestions, you can have a successful online business with happy customers that will return to your online store for more sales.
