Magento Free Version EOL in 2020: What it mean for eCommerce entrepreneurs?

Oopssss…Magento® (free version) is going to end of life, It’s kinda tricky to understanding!

Let’s see how?

It’s since a topic in the discussion that will Magento continue with free open source product or not. With this email, even we got confused if it’s connected to Magento 1 or Magento Free Open Source Approach.  It may put you as merchant or agency partner in worry.

Magento® had added

“A free version of Magento which will sunset in June 2020, and we want to ensure your business is prepared.”

Fortunately or maybe, unfortunately, it’s all about Magento 1 referencing Magento 1 community edition and Magento 1 commerce product. They have made it official announcement earlier that Magento 1 will no longer receive any new release update or security release after June 2020.

Let’s take a look on twitter post…


This post is purely related to merchants who are using Magento1 software product for their e-commerce business. It’s more like a promotional email for Magento Commerce 2 so that merchants to subscribe & can check how Magento 2 Commerce solution can boost their E-commerce business. So there isn’t anything to worry about Magento open source approach nor there is any official statement about ending of open source approach till now. In case you Magento 1 merchant, you should plan Magento 2 migration as early as possible to be on a safe business side.
