Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration Services

Migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2 to maintain security and increase the performance of your digital storefront.

Why should you migrate to Magento 2?

Magento has announced that all services for Magento 1 will reach end of life by July 1, 2020. This means that Magento will no longer support quality fixes or security patches to merchants using the Magento 1 platform.

In addition to improved security and support from Magento, there are meaningful benefits for retailers who upgrade to the Magento 2 platform. The upgrade unlocks powerful speed, customer experience, and marketing enhancements that will allow for increased performance and scalability.
