Upgrade from Magento 1 to Magento 2

Upgrade from Magento 1
to Magento 2

Magento 1 support will come to an end in the near future. For the thousands of businesses who have a Magento 1 website, this will most likely mean a migration to Magento 2.

New features are not being added to Magento 1. When support ends there will be no more security patches or technical support. Your current Magento 1 will be full of vulnerabilities.

Don’t let your competitors get ahead of you. Magento 2 is estimated to be 20% faster than Magento 1. It is an essential upgrade to have if you are currently running Magento 1.

The 4 Magento Migration


Magento offers a Data Migration Tool which helps with the the migration process of critical data (products, categories, orders, configurations etc.).


You won’t be able to directly migrate your Magento 1 theme to Magento 2. A developer will have to modify the current ones to make it compatible, or create a new Magento 2 theme altogether.


These are the essential components to your online store. You will not be able to install Magento 1 extensions on Magento 2. You can install the desired extensions available on Magento Marketplace.

Custom Code

The custom code used on your Magento 1 store may be compatible with Magento 2. However, they may be structural differences in the 2 platforms. Magento offers a Code Migration Toolkit that could assist you in making sure that the custom code will function correctly in Magento 2 store.

The migration process won’t be the easiest process as Magento 2 comes with a very different architecture and databse design. It’s important to start planning your migration as soon as possible. The more customisation your website has undergone, the more time and effort it would take to move it across to Magento 2.
