About This Book
Who This Book Is For
Have you been trying to create a website without luck using different platforms, but have never tried Magento before? Then this book is for you. Familiarity with programming and Magento 1 will help, but is not a prerequisite.
What You Will Learn
Do you have a good product to sell but need your start-up to sell it to your potential customers the right way? Were you unhappy with what Magento 1 had to offer and are looking forward to trying out what Magento 2 provides? If either of these questions ring a bell, then this book is for you! You’ll start by getting a general understanding of what Magento is, why and how you should use it, and whether it is possible and feasible to migrate from an old web store to Magento 2.
We’ll introduce you to the main e-commerce concepts and basic features and let you play with them, so you can get a taste of how catalog and content management works. Following on from that, we’ll show you how to tune your store up. You will learn how to get web store offers up and running, how to offer various discounts in the catalog, how to let the customers reduce the total price in the shopping cart by combining different products, and how to generate coupon codes that customers can use. Finally, we’ll get serious and turn your plaything into a real web store, teaching you how to run it for real.
