Adieu to Magento Go and Prostores

By | July 4, 2014

Today Surprise New Came from E commerce Gaint Ebay Owned Magento that they are shutting down the Magento Go and Prostores Services. It has been announced that Magento Go will shut down on February 1st, 2015


The decision to discontinue Magento Go and ProStores is part of a realignment, says Peasley. Magento is focusing on its core products—Enterprise and Community—and on mid-sized and larger merchants. The company is also working on developing and releasing the next generation of its platform, which the media and industry has dubbed Magento 2.

While the open letter refers to resources that are available to merchants to help them transition to another e-commerce solution, there is no mention that Magento has inked a deal with BigCommerce to absorb or migrate existing Magento Go customers. The deal was mentioned in a re/code article, but no confirmation of the deal has been made public by either Magento or BigCommerce.
