Five months have passed since Magento 2's general release and some brands have already jumped on its potential early. Here's a few from across the world.
Alcatel's US site relaunched with a clean homepage design, featuring all product ranges at a glance. Impressive product pages come complete with a wealth of content, from video tutorials to images of the products' performance in a number of contexts.
The new Magento 2 checkout uses native payment integrations with Paypal Express and Braintree for credit card transactions. Visit Alcatelonetouch.
Although shoppers might not want to purchase a new car online, Seat Germany, a car manufacturer, built this Magento 2 store to sell its accompanying merchandise. The site is a good example of how a big brand can remove the middleman and adopt ecommerce as a direct-to-consumer (D2C) channel. Visit Seat Germany.
Expanding from its original subscription model, snack brand Graze now offers its customers the chance to purchase its tasty foods directly, via this new online store. Together with Byredo, Graze was among the first UK brands to launch on Magento 2: both projects were developed in beta, and went live the same week the new platform was launched.
Graze presents an inviting homepage, featuring a remarkable navigation that gives direct access to the numerous product categories. The site's loading time is also impressive: Magento 2 has been designed to offer over 50% faster page load times. Visit Graze.
Australian brand Venroy specialises in beach resortwear for men. It started off with a wholesale model, selling to department stores in the US and Europe. To bring its products directly to sunseeking customers all over the world, Venroy built its first online store directly on Magento 2 - making the most of all options available for a really comprehensive homepage and product pages. Visit Venroy.
The homepage of the new Bikram Yoga website, particularly with all its sections organising a large amount of information and native content, looks fantastic. However, it's surprising to see the one part of this website that hasn't been migrated to Magento 2 is the store - no doubt a legacy of previous websites, and ripe for upgrade. Visit bikramyoga.com.
