Magento being the leading open-source eCommerce platform that is used by most of the merchants is soon going to end its Magento 1 version. In the eCommerce system, Magento is the preferred choice of the merchants.
So many merchants like you are still working on Magento 1 but its the time you should know that Magento 1 is coming to an end by June 2020.
With the Magento 1 End of Life what questions come to your intellect?
Will the websites halt working? Will the trade come to end?
Relax! it won’t.
There will be no modern highlights or indeed quality fixes discharged for Magento 1 after June 2020. Therefore to help those merchants who are planning to stay on M1, CedCommerce, the official Magento Community Insider Partner is extending its support by providing the customer and development support for M1 extensions.
What does Magento 1 End Of Life Means for merchants?
As you all know that after 30th June Magento 1 will come to an end and there will be no new updates for it. But there is no need to worry as your store website won’t be shut down. It will also be very difficult for merchants to compete with others in the market. Hence it becomes the need of the hour to have support for your Magento 1 extension.
This “Magento 1 End of Life” subject rotates around these three things:
- security patches
- code fixes
- feature improvements
Challenges for Merchants Staying on Magento 1:
As already stated above that Magento will not discharge any more security patches or overhauls once Magento 1 EOL happens and, basically, there will no support left for the merchants. When it comes to the end of Magento 1 retailers will be facing a number of challenges if they have not yet taken any decision for their store:
- Loss of PCI Compliance: Most payment gateways requires that you conduct a quarterly PCI compliance scan on your store. Your store couldn’t pass those PCI scans without proper security patches and security monitoring.
- Insufficient Support: Security is a costly and tedious undertaking to manage on your own. So maintaining security for your store and earning revenue simultaneously will become very difficult for you. Hence you would be needing expert Magento 1 developers.
- No Security Updates: Since there would be no security update for Magento 1 extensions, so you need to keep your fully-fledged store on M1 secure. For any of the updates or new features, only custom work can be done through the experts.
