Magento eCommerce software just got even better! The world’s leader in cloud digital commerce innovation has unveiled its latest updates to its next-generation applications marketplace.

Magento Marketplace provides merchants with a simple, yet detailed user experience to offer the discovery of curated, high-quality technologies, more easily, and this month Magento has rolled out the extensions for the Magento 1.x platform.

These new updates mean that developers now have access to a larger customer base than previously, as well as the capability to increase the tailoring experiences to modern businesses.

Magento originally trialled Magento Marketplace back in April so that they could iron out any creases in their new extension, so as to ensure merchants now buy the best quality commerce extensions available. The marketplace seems to be popular, with a tenfold growth in sales volume in the first six months of its release, which also reaped in excess of 50,000 merchant users too.

The dev team at Magento have been very busy carrying out rigorous testing of more than 750 extensions, all of which have gone through scrupulous marketing and business value reviews to meet the standards required.

Bhavin Rawal, Head of Magento Marketplace and Technology Partnerships at Magento Commerce recently spoke about the new extensions, saying: “Magento Marketplace embodies the passion and creativity of our global ecosystem of industry innovators who work tirelessly to continually enhance our platform in a way that none of our competitors can match.”

He added: “With today’s Marketplace updates, it’s now simpler than ever for merchants to continuously innovate and create custom solutions tailored to the precise needs of their business.”

Ryan Thomason, Head of Sales, Marketing and Business Development at TaxJar, prominent extension developer and Magento Premier Technology Partner said of the updates: “As the next-generation commerce hub, Magento Marketplace has quickly become the essential catalyst for company growth in an incredibly competitive market. Magento is enabling technology providers like TaxJar to more quickly and openly share their innovations while equipping merchants to breed customer loyalty with speed and ease.

“Magento Marketplace advances our mission to help merchants eliminate the headache of sales taxes, giving them the freedom to focus less on compliance and more on creating personalized shopping experiences that exceed consumer expectations,” Thomason added.

Extensions for Magento 1.x and Magento 2.x are available in the Magento Marketplace right now. For more information, please visit www.marketplace.magento.com.
