Magento is unique and often used by major brands due to its scalability and breadth of features. Magento 2 requires specialist knowledge and technical understanding for it to perform and run optimally. As I’ve completed four exams in Magento 2, I’m comfortable working on all types of Magento projects and carrying out Magento migrations.
Initially starting on Magento 1 and now working with Magento 2, I fully understand the fundamentals of the platform. This is especially important because a lack of understanding often results in a project not quite working how you want. Understanding how Magento handles data in terms of products is pivotal.
Setting your products up as a particular type might restrict functionality at a later date. Another consideration is that if you’re planning on multichannel through Amazon and eBay, then attribute sets and configuration will play an important role.
Magento 1 will reach ‘End of Life’ in June 2020. After June 2020, Magento 1 will no longer be supported by Adobe. That means that security and performance updates will stop and many of the extensions may also stop receiving updates. All of which could leave your eCommerce website in a vulnerable position.
It’s a great time to start thinking about migrating your Magento 1 site to Magento 2. If Magento hasn’t quite ticked all the boxes for you, then another platform, such as WooCommerce, could potentially be an option.
