Upgrade to Magento 2

Magento 2.0 is finally here with its swift new architecture and brand new database design.

If you’ve made up your mind to migrate your M1 store to the latest version of the platform, you should know that the process is going to be a little more tricky than the regular Magento upgrade.

Basically, migration to M2 involves four components: site data — extensions — themes — customizations. While site data can be transferred with the help of Data Migration Tool, all your Magento 1 themes, extensions and customizations have to be rewritten from scratch.

That may trigger some questions that directly relate to our products. On this page, we address the most common ones:

1. Do I have to purchase a Magento 2 extension, if I already own its Magento 1 version?

Since Magento 2 has a completely different architecture and database design, there is no backward compatibility. It means that every 1.x extension must be completely redeveloped in order to be compatible with the 2.0 version.

That is why the majority of Magento developers (including MageWorx) market and sell their Magento extensions, as completely new products.

But we, at MageWorx, understand that migrating to Magento 2 may incur hefty expenses for store owners. That’s why we offer a 50% on all Magento 2 solutions for those who own their Magento 1 analogues.

2. How to get a Magento 2 upgrade discount?

All you need to do is:

  • log into your user account on our website
  • add any Magento 2 extension to cart
  • apply this discount coupon at the checkout: M2TRANSFER

NOTE! The discount can be used only once, and only on purchasing the 2.0 analogue of the M1 extension you own.

3. Do you have special discounts on your Magento 2 extensions for new users?

Sure, we do!

Every new user can save up to 20% on purchasing our Magento 2 solutions. All one needs to do to get a discount is to join our Customer Loyalty Program.

4. Will I get the same functionality in Magento 2 extension as in its Magento 1 analogue?

Yes, you will.

All the features that currently exist in our Magento 1 extensions will be gradually developed in their Magento 2 analogues.

Those Magento 2 extensions that now have been released with the basic functionality, will receive all the advanced features in the next couple of months.

5. If I have a custom version of your Magento 1 extension, what are the steps to transfer it to Magento 2?

If the analogue of such a Magento 1 extension has been released, you need to contact our Customer Support Service to discuss the possibility of its customization.

6. Do your Magento 2 extensions also come with free lifetime support?

Yes, they do.

7. Do your Magento 2 extensions updates also come free for life?

Yes. All new features and improvements come free of charge for all MageWorx users.

8. Will the price of your Magento 2 extensions be the same as of their Magento 1 analogues?

Generally, yes.

Please note, however, that we may change the price of some our solutions depending on the situation on the Magento market. Also, the price may be reconsidered after extending the product functionality.

9. Will you update and support your Magento 1 extensions in the future?

Yes, we will.

Our team will keep updating all our Magento 1 extensions, as long as this version of the eCommerce platform stays ‘alive’.

10. Do you offer Upgrade to Magento 2 service?

Yes. Now we can implement the procedure upon an individual request.

Soon (in the 3d quarter) we are planning to launch a separate service for that.
