Magento 2.4 Frequently Asked Questions

How do I upgrade to Magento 2.4?

Please follow the steps listed above, depending on what sort of SITC customer you are.

What happens if I don’t upgrade?

While the upgrade is not forced, Magento 2.2 is becoming end of life. This means it is likely you will experience disruption, so we highly recommend upgrading as soon as possible.

Do I need to upgrade to Magento 2.3 first or can I upgrade straight to 2.4?

If you have not yet updated to Mag 2.3 you must do so first. Please see full instructions here.

Will my webstore be offline at all while Magento updates?

Upgrading to the latest version of Magento could take an hour or two, depending on the compatibility of your webstore modules. During this time you will not be able to use your site, therefore we recommend doing this during a quiet time (in the evening, for example).

Does it make a difference if I sell B2B or B2C?

For users on Magento 2 and above we have developed a suite of B2B modules that offer an unrivalled customer experience. These features are designed for stores with a larger number of customers, offering personalised pricing and catalogues as well as order automation and enhanced quoting through an all-in-one portal.
