Magento is a popular e-commerce platform owned by Adobe. It’s currently offered in two software versions: the original Magento 1 and Magento 2, which offers more functionality. On 1 June 2020, Adobe will quit offering technical support for Magento 1. This means that as of that date, Adobe will no longer be releasing security patches and functional updates for the older version.
Of course you can always switch to the newer Magento 2, but that upgrade carries a higher price tag. Fortunately, for those who don’t want or are unable to switch to Magento 2 at this point, there’s a solid solution: support by Mage One.
The folks behind Mage One believe that support for Magento 1 should be continued after the 1 June deadline. That’s why they’ll be taking over from Adobe as far as updates and security patches are concerned. So if you want to continue running your shop on Magento 1, we recommend signing up with Mage One. To open an account, all you have to do is register via this link https://my.mage-one.com/register/c751c908643fddf964c989dcab63b0c8
For a modest monthly fee this will assure you of all the required updates for Magento 1. And as an official partner of Mage One, we will be supporting our payment plugin for Magento 1 for at least another year – regardless of your preferred payment method. That has you set for some time to come!
The developers at Mage One have set up a page with frequently asked questions. Visit mage-one.com/faq/ for further details on the ins and outs of this initiative.
One last thing: if you want to keep running securely on Magento 1, make sure you’re using the latest stable version of Magento 1. This is Magento 188.8.131.52. To check your version, log on to Magento 1 as an admin. Scroll down on the admin dashboard: the footer at the bottom lists which software version your shop is currently running on.
