In February 2020, BuiltWith.com detected well over 60,000 live websites powered by Magento 1.9. It’s apparent that many merchants will continue to operate their Magento 1 stores rather than replatform before this popular eCommerce software reaches its official end of life in June of 2020.
What happens when Magento 1 reaches its end of life? There will be no dramatic change, the store will continue to work. Simply stated, Magento will stop releasing security patches for Magento 1 users. However, there will be some ripple effects that users will experience. For instance, it may become harder to be certified as PCI Compliant since the platform will technically be unsupported by its publisher. There may also be third-party vendors, like payment gateways, that stop supporting the platform.
If you’re still leveraging Magento 1 and don’t expect to migrate to Magento 2 or another platform before security patches stop rolling out, there are things you can do to help protect your website and your business. Here’s a quick checklist to get you started down the right path:(more…)

Sellers operating Magento and NetSuite separately aren’t getting the most value out of their platforms. Instead, sellers spend most of their time manually moving critical data like online orders and fulfillment between these platforms, which easily leads to data errors. Teams then aren’t confident in the accuracy of their data and spend too much time fixing their own mistakes for customers.
To overcome these challenges, sellers need to integrate their Magento webstore with their NetSuite ERP. Integration automates your business processes so you can get back to growing your business and stop wasting time policing your data.

Installing an ERP like Sage is a crucial step for growing online businesses. ERPs are necessary tools to help manage inventory, purchasing and financial reporting. Even though necessary, adding another system to your technology stack complicates your business processes.
Instead of just working out of your eCommerce system like Magento, you now must worry about sharing that same data from Magento to Sage and vice-versa. This often requires you to hand-key online orders, inventory counts and shipping/tracking data between the two. Even during normal selling times, manual data entry can take employees several hours daily, slow down processes, and be error-prone.
When considering implementing an ERP like Sage, it’s important to consider how it will integrate with Magento. Integration eliminates manual data entry to ensure operational efficiency and data integrity across your organization. This article will provide a quick comparison of Sage’s various products and the best way to integrate with Magento. (more…)
