Llama Commerce – an Excellent Option for Transition from Magento Go and ProStores

Recently Magento announced the upcoming transition of all merchants using Magento Go and ProStores to other eCommerce platforms, as the support and further development of these products are terminated by February, 2015.

Such migration raises several issues to the affected merchants and the first one of them is the choice of a worthy successor for their business among other eCommerce platforms. Still taking care about customers, Magento offers several transition options most suitable for smooth and full-value migration, which are featured in the newly created Migration Centers.

One of the few recommended products is the Llama Commerce Platform.

This product is designed for those merchants who need more flexibility and control than provided by SaaS solutions and seek a platform for development and enlargement.

Llama Commerce Platform

The Llama Commerce Platform extends Magento with extremely valuable features, such as advanced user interface, new predefined widgets, or ready-installed Magento extensions for clear and straightforward shopping experience. As a result, Magento Community or Enterprise editions together with the Llama Commerce Platform are able to provide the necessary impact to your business.

The platform is available in three options: Quick Launch, Jumpstart, and Custom build. All the provided options have their own advantages and are aimed to handle different sizes of businesses.

In order to make your transition even easier, Classy Llama developed a special offer for its customers. So, if you enter the platform with the Simple Helix hosting, you receive the next additional benefits within the Quick Launch or Jumpstart options:

  • Free migration of your Magento Go data (customers, orders, products);
  • Free 60 days of hosting for e-Cart hosting plans;
  • Free SSL certificate.

Thus, the challenge you face is more an unexpected offering rather than unpleasant event, as the transition to Llama Commerce Platform provides a new promising opportunity for your business. So, examine all the pros of the product and step forward without regrets.
