Problems and Solutions

It is common that a store site has some technical problems or has some new updates so it needs terminating for a while to fix or upgrade. During this time, it is necessary to inform customers about the current site maintenance and comfort them while they cannot access temporarily.

It is quite rude when one day visitors come to your site and find it not working without no reason notification. Therefore, the maintenance page with clear explanation and sincere apology shows the delicacy of stores and the respect to your customers.

Coming Soon Page works as the entrance to a new thing upcoming at the store site. It makes customers feel more curious and excited to follow and wait for the launching date. Therefore, it is important to make visitors impressed with the appearance of the Coming Soon Page.

With an appealing message and a subscription section, Coming Soon Page can become the box to collect customer's information. For example, “please leave your name and your email, we will email you when the site goes live”.

If you are a product creator, you obviously want to know if your product will have success or not. So, a coming soon page can actually help you test your idea.

Coming Soon page can become the place to motivate sales for upcoming products/ services by offering visitors coupons via email which they have provided on the page. And definitely, when customers receive a discount, they will be much more concerned about the upcoming products and tend to come back when the site goes live.

Coming Soon page and Maintenance page redirection

When stores have any updates on the store site, it is necessary to calm down customers for their impatience during their waiting moments. The best choice is redirecting them to a new destination called Coming Soon Page or Maintenance Page.

Magento 2 Coming Soon Page is ideal for the new things upcoming such as a new product, new service, new deals or any promotional campaigns. Meanwhile, when a page is under construction or upgradation, Maintenance Page will support properly.

Depending on each situation, an e-commerce site should use two supportive pages appropriately.
