eCommerce Platform Magento Go to Close on 1st February 2015

Following the news that Magento Go will be shut down next year, It’s time to start thinking about a migration solution – and Visualsoft is here to help.

Ecommerce platform Magento Go will shut down on 1st February 2015. The popular platform, owned by eBay’s Enterprise division will continue to provide customer service until this date, however UK retailers will need to source a new ecommerce platform before then.

A ‘difficult decision’

In the official statement from eBay Enterprise, Product and Strategy SVP, Mark Lavelle, discussed the ‘difficult decision’ to shut down the service, stating that, “Over the past five years we’ve had the opportunity to work with thousands of merchants and have been humbled to be a part of so many success stories.”

Magento customers in the US have been advised by eBay to work with their competitor, Bigcommerce, due to the company’s experience porting customers to their platform. Affected Magento customers in the UK can take advantage of Visualsoft’s seamless migration solution, with an award winning eCommerce platform we offer everything you need to quickly and easily get your website up and running.
