Change is happening…do you use Magento 1 for your ecommerce site?

By 16th December 2019News

It’s the end of an era for Magento 1, we are putting the power in your hands and giving your Magento site a free review…

In June 2020, one of the world’s leading ecommerce platform for millions of online shopping websites, Magento 1, will cease to be officially supported. Retailers may be left vulnerable to security issues due to a lack of official patches, but also no longer compliant with Payment Card industry standards.

As a result of its powerful features it has to offer, Magento 1 is one of the world’s leading ecommerce platforms. So it’s important that hundreds of thousands of online retailers that currently rely on Magento 1, take steps now to avoid running into problems. 

What site problems could occur?

After the end of life cut off, Magento will no longer develop official security patches for the Magento 1 platform, consequently, customer data and transactional information is at risk. Many payment providers such as Adyen, have already stated that they are going to withdraw their services for Magento 1 as it will no longer be PCI compliant. It is the responsibility of the retailer – both morally and legally – to take steps to ensure that customers and their data are protected.

How we can help future-proof your site?

Many retailers are looking at the next best steps for their business to take, some have already made the move to Magento 2, or other platforms such as Shopify that now suits them better. We are helping retailers looking to migrate from Magento 1, by offering a free site review. 

This will include an assessment as to which ecommerce platform will provide the best solution, tailored for their business. We will advise on the next best steps for them to take, including general site improvements to incorporate into the new site build and a fully costed migration plan.
