Magento partners with Bigcommerce as it closes ProStores and Magneto Go
Austin, Texas — Magento, an eBay Enterprise company, has named Bigcommerce, a commerce platform for successful and emerging merchants, as its preferred migration provider for ProStores and Magento Go when the two products are discontinued on February 1, 2015.
Bigcommerce and Magento are committed to the future success of ProStores and Magento Go retailers. Magento is offering migration options that best suit the needs of each client, including migration to its Community and Enterprise Editions, and special migration offers to Bigcommerce.
For those clients best served outside of the Magento portfolio, Magento recommends ProStores and Go retailers move their stores to Bigcommerce.
Magento and Bigcommerce carefully coordinated the design of a migration program to ensure that ProStores and Go retailers can begin making preparations to migrate their stores well before the critical holiday season. The program includes integration across sales, migration services, and client support, as well as exclusive offers on comparably priced packages.
“Magento is dedicated to helping fast-growing retailers succeed. We chose Bigcommerce to help with the transition because of their shared commitment to client success and their proven track record of migrating large groups of merchants onto their platform,” said Mark Lavelle, senior vice president of product and strategy, eBay Enterprise. “Throughout this transition period, we will fully support both ProStores and Go, and clients will receive the same level of customer service they’ve come to expect.”
Bigcommerce has previously migrated more than 6,000 ProStores retailers onto its platform and has migrated an additional 6,000 stores from other platforms, giving it the industry’s deepest expertise in terms of in-house professional services and tools to help clients successfully relaunch their stores. In addition, Bigcommerce’s client-centric culture, tight integration with PayPal and ability for clients to sell on eBay make it a natural choice as a Magento transition provider.
