Last week we covered how rumours were circulating and some news outlets were wrongly stating that Magento 1 support was ending in November 2018.
We knew this to be inaccurate and did our best to get the facts out and stop any panic from concerned or worried Magento 1 users.
Well today Magento has confirmed the truth that we reported last week on a page on their site.
June 2020 has been confirmed which means you still have well over a year left of live in your Magento platform before having to look at your other options.
When it comes to multi-channel or website platforms our view is that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it, as that one area of your business is often the one most crucial to your daily operations that ensure your business runs smoothly.
So to any existing Magento 1 users, don’t panic, you still can easily get another 2 Christmases out of your current Magento 1 setup.
Maybe in 12 months, that would be a good time to reassess what your business needs from a platform and build an implementation plan for early 2020 after the busiest sales periods are behind you.
