    The news of Magento announcing the end of support for 1.x version are old. Although Magento has pushed it off to June 2019, it has left thousands of business owners mulling over migration. Also, migrating to Magento 2 would be an ideal thing to do if one doesn’t want their business to be vulnerable to security threats and risks.

    According to, More than 420,000 websites run on Magento today. However, only 4% out of these (less than 20,000) make use of Magento 2. Which means, nearly 95% business owners will have to figure out whether or not to opt for Magento migration services. Considering that the upgrade process takes at least 3 to 6 months, Magento will continue providing support for some more months to come.
    Should You Consider Upgrading to Magento 2?

    Magento 1 comes with limited set of functionalities. Magento 2, on the other hand, has several enhancements including:

    New B2C and B2B features
    Better security rendered through different payment gateways
    Higher responsiveness to devices
    50% faster loading time
    User-friendly and intuitive admin panel
    Easy extension updates
    Enhanced flexibility for personalized features

    Invest into Migration

    For migrating your e-store from M1 to M2, you might have to get in touch with an ecommerce web development company. Thereafter, a team of developers can help you make important changes and needed adjustments.

    New Themes

    It is not possible to port themes of Magento 1 store to Magento 2. And hence, you will have to build new themes from the scratch.

    Extension Mismatch

    Magento 1 extensions will no longer work for Magento 2.

    So, what if I Don’t Migrate?

    Well, you need to be ready to face the consequences then. As soon as the support for Magento 1 ends, the websites that run on Magento 1 might become vulnerable to spam attacks, server attacks, and leaking of payment details.

    Also, the e-stores will have to deal with slowly performing websites resulting into deterioration in the number of visitors, customers, and ultimately, sales. What we conclude out of this is, if you do not migrate now, you will definitely have to do it later.

    Some Steps to Consider Before You Approach a Company for Magento Migration services:

    Have a Migration Plan in Place

    Go through all the theme and extensions on your current e-store and mull over the aspects that you want and the ones that you want to get rid of. Also, think about the changes you want to make.

    Make Time Considerations

    Migration to M2 is a time-consuming task. Hence, you might have to set aside other tasks until you are making the upgrade.

    Consider Features & Functionalities

    Have a checklist about the new features you need to have and the old features you want to fix.

    Install Magento 2 Hardware System

    You can set up a Magento 2 hardware system that is compatible with your current system. You can also make use of Data Migration tool.

    Have a Dry Run

    As soon as everything is up and working, go for a dry run and test the website thoroughly before you go live.
