The event dug deep as to how the market is changing – how B2B is taking over B2C! Meet Magento Asia dealt with the fact that B2B should be exactly treated like B2C since, in the coming years, it is all going to be the same.

New trends and insights on the checkout process were brought forward at Meet Magento Asia – it is seen that almost 69% of online customers abandon their cart after adding more than one item to it. Also, it was a shock to know that 41% of the customers who initiate the checkout flow never even complete it. Meet Magento aims at curating new ideas and methods to overcome these situations.
