SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cloudinary, the cloud-based media management solution of choice for the world’s leading eCommerce and retail brands, today announced a technology partnership with Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation. Cloudinary’s web-based image and video platform will enable merchants on the Magento Commerce platform to quickly and easily enhance their media assets, including images and videos, and deliver improved shopping experiences across every device and browser. A Select Technology Partner, Cloudinary is available via the Magento Marketplace.
Statista expects worldwide eCommerce sales to reach $4.5 trillion by 2021, a nearly threefold uptick in online revenue since 2014, which reached $1.3 trillion. A successful eCommerce site is much more than its words. Images and videos tell a story, and persuade and engage potential buyers. But this rapid media growth can impact page load times, conversion rates, and even SEO. This is a major concern for sites, since the average customer will wait less than three seconds before abandoning a site.
“We’re pleased to welcome Cloudinary as a Select Technology Partner for image and video management,” said Ryan Murden, Head of Business Development at Magento Commerce. “Their expertise across eCommerce and retail will serve our merchants well, and we’re happy to provide an integration to their solution for enhanced media management -- a business-critical function for all online merchants today.”
“With media increasingly driving consumer decision making, online retailers rely heavily on images and videos for brand storytelling and customer engagement,” said Daniel Amitai, Vice President, Business Development at Cloudinary. “We look forward to helping Magento merchants enhance their media infrastructure by providing an easy and automated way to create, personalize, manage and optimize media assets and commerce experiences.”
Magento merchants can start using the Cloudinary extension for free, and with just a few lines of code, effortlessly migrate media assets to Cloudinary on demand or move entire media libraries all at once. More information about the Cloudinary for Magento integration is available here.
