Magento Go is Shutting Down

E-commerce platform Magento, owned by eBay’s Enterprise division, is closing down two of its products designed to reach small to medium-sized online retailers: Magento Go and ProStores. The company has posted notices and informational guides on both product websites, directing current customers to “Migration Center” dashboards and various FAQ’s that will help them move their businesses to other platforms. Combined, the two products include around 10,000 merchants.

This is what eBay Enterprise Says

We’ve made the difficult decision to shut down Magento Go on February 1, 2015. Your store will not be affected during the Holiday shopping season – it will continue to operate and perform normally, and Magento will continue to provide customer service until February 1, 2015.

 

Over the past five years we’ve had the opportunity to work with thousands of merchants and have been humbled to be a part of so many success stories. Going forward, we’re focusing our resources on Magento Enterprise Edition and Magento Community Edition, two solutions that better support and better equip small and medium size merchants to prosper in the evolving and increasingly competitive eCommerce landscape.

 

Please be sure to take advantage of the checklists, planning resources and special offers found in the Migration Center to help smooth your transition to a new eCommerce solution.
