Magento 2 Features List

Feature Highlights

Customer Segmentation and Personalization
Create personalized shopping experiences that boost conversion rates by dynamically displaying content, promotions, and pricing to specific customers based on properties such as their location, gender, order history, lifetime purchase value, wish list items, and more. You can also target unknown site visitors based on the products, they have viewed or items in their cart.


Dynamic Rule-Based Product Relations
Set automated rules to determine which products to present as up-sells, cross-sells, and related products to each customer segment. Rules are easily administered through a condition-based tool allowing you to effortlessly target product suggestions to increase sales and average order values.

Instant Purchase
Boost conversion rates for returning shoppers with a new Instant Purchase checkout option. Customers can use previously-stored payment credentials and shipping information to skip checkout steps, making the process faster and easier, especially for mobile shoppers.

Content Staging and Preview
Increase sales and productivity by enabling your business teams to easily create, preview, and schedule a wide range of content updates without involving IT. Preview all changes by date or store view to guarantee a flawless shopper experience and optimize the timing and impact of site updates by managing all changes through a timeline dashboard. Automatically deploy updates at scheduled times for greater efficiency.

Visual Merchandising
Optimize product category pages to drive higher sales by arranging products with a simple drag-and-drop interface or sorting rules that order products by bestseller, color, highest margin, our newest addition.
