Magento Connect Marketplace is an important portion of Magento’s unique approach to the eCommerce platform market: great out-of-the-box functionality along with unparalleled flexibility and extensibility to easily customize an online store. Magento (rebranded Adobe Commerce in 2021) users turn to the Magento Connect Marketplace to get the functionality they need with minimal cost and coding efforts. During their first 2 years of operation, Magento Connect Marketplace extensions have already been downloaded over 2 million times.
Step to the continued success with the Connect publication rack ensuring the extensions listed are not only beneficial to our merchants, but you are also sustained by their creators and updated regularly to integrate with our latest product versions.
Updated Qc Requirements
Inside our deal with constructing a premier eCommerce niche for our merchants and developers, Magento has updated its qc requirements for extensions.
The newest requirements will make things easier for merchants to get and download up-to-date extensions, while increasing the overall value of the Magento Connect Niche for both merchants and developers. On the list of key criteria for extension inclusion within the Magento Connect Marketplace are:
- Support for Magento Community Edition 1.5 and more recent versions
- Four or even more referrals during the last 6 months for paid extensions (unless they went live after June 30, 2013)
- Six or maybe more downloads over the last half a year for free extensions (unless they went live after June 30, 2013)
- Extensions that don’t match the updated requirements will likely be taken off visible on Magento Connect starting April 28, 2014.
These measures are enforced consistently across all extensions, and can include extensions manufactured by industry partners and developers. About 30% in the extensions available on the market will be impacted, and all sorts of impacted developers will probably be informed via email. If applicable, developers whose extensions are delisted on April 28, 2014, can resubmit their extensions if they’ve made updates to met the criteria, and so they’ll even get to keep their existing ratings.
Merchants can continue to use delisted extensions and assist the extensions’ developers for support.
