Magento upgrade service


We charge $150 for every version upgrade. Magento CE versions: 1.4.х; 1.5.х; 1.6.х; 1.7.х; 1.8.x; 1.9.x

Example:Upgrade from to 1.9.3 takes one step; price is $150.
Upgrade from to latest stable 1.x version (Magento at the moment) takes 3 steps; so upgrade price is $450.

Upgrade procedure

After receiving all necessary technical information about the server, and after payment we develop upgrade path for your Magento installation:

  • You submit upgrade request form providing access details and initiating payment transaction
  • We connect to your server to prepare and download pre-upgrade backup file (alternatively, you provide us full backup of your Magento store)
  • We restore the backup file on our test servers to prepare Staging Environment
  • We develop and perform upgrade of your store in Staging Environment and solve any problems that occurred during upgrade
  • When upgrade path is developed and staging instance is upgraded, we provide you a link to verify upgraded store (i.e., so you can login to Backend or Frontend and check every aspect of upgraded version. Any extensions that does not work correctly or require fixes are documented and quoted, upgraded to a newer version if available or disabled
  • If you are satisfied with upgraded version in Staging Environment, we schedule with you upgrade of live store according to the upgrade path developed. Otherwise, we correct all issues in Staging Environment and update our upgrade path accordingly
  • We deploy upgrade path to live store (alternatively, we provide you backup file of upgraded store). Live store is switched into maintenance mode during database upgrade and it usually takes 30 minutes to complete it.
  • We notify you about process completion and perform basic tests such as login, register, password reset, checkout, contact form tests.

If your store was compromised or infected with malware, please mention this in additional details field.

    Here’s the letter I wrote after a successful upgrade:
    Hi xxxx,
    That is simply amazing.
    I have spent days and hours looking for a solution for a the other problem I mentioned.
    You found and fixed it straight away.
    If you ever do an ‘upgrade/transfer’ to Magento 2, please let me know. It will be the next step at some point.

    I am so happy I found you.
    Sometimes it’s difficult to know who to use and what their skill level is. I’m more than impressed.
    If you need more money for the extra work, just send me a pay link.
    I am very happy to do this in appreciation.
    Also, I will post a comment on your blog.

    You can deploy any time now. The site is not being presently used a lot.
    I was getting it ready for an upcoming function.
    You will no doubt put a maintenance flag on it.
    For now, thank you again for all your good work. Have a great weekend.

    All the very best
    Peter from Australia
