Magento closes down Magento Go and ProStores
The company has prepared detailed guides and other notices about how to move users’ stores to other platforms. All these documents can be found on ProStores and Magento Go official websites.
Magento told its customers about this news via email. At the same time, the company confessed that this decision wasn’t an easy one. Both services will stop working after big winter holidays as it’s a busy time for all merchants.
Nevertheless, affected customers may move their businesses before Holiday shopping season. eBay, which owns Magento now, has announced BigCommerce as an official partner for stores migration. The company made such a choice because this competitor had already ported Magento businesses to its platform before.
BigCommerce has wide experience in moving Magento stores and other platforms. Besides, it allows using PayPal and selling on eBay which is important for most merchants.
Magento decided to close Magento Go and ProStores in order to pay more attention to Magento Community and Enterprise Editions. The company explains that these two services are better for merchants owning small and medium size businesses.
It is expected that many companies will start offering their services for porting Magento Go and ProStore businesses to Magento Community and other platforms.
