Magento 2 vs Miva

When comparing E-commerce platforms, it’s always important to identify the kind of experience that you’re hoping to have as merchants. Each software has its respective strengths and weaknesses, but your specific use case and goals will lead you in the right direction when comparing E-commerce software options. In the case of Miva and Magento 2, there are some critical differences.

New Magento 2 Features and Enhancements

Many merchants are trying to compare Magento 1 vs. Magento 2. While Magento 2 is still in it’s infancy, and many developers are eagerly awaiting the stabilization of the platform, there are many new features and enhancements that merchants will be able to leverage. As of the writing of this article, there are over 1,400 issues, such as reported bugs, listed in official Magento 2 github page. There are also approximately 240 Magento Extensions available, with over 300 reported by the Magento team as coming soon. The extensions that are available have had minimal usage compared to many Magento 1 extensions, and while the Magento team has been screening these, it wouldn’t be surprising to find shortcomings in some of these Magento 2 Extensions, given more strenuous real world use. As of today the Magento 2 environment is therefore out of reach of most merchants who can’t risk running into so many bugs, and who want access to more pre-built extensions rather than take on the expense of custom building extensions.
