There are two major reasons why we’ve decided to make this change.
Firstly, integrating Shogun Page Builder into Magento has proven to be very challenging for many current and prospective customers due to the nature of the customizations that have been made to each individual Magento deployment.
Page Builder has been available for the Magento platform for over a year, and during that time, we’ve run into repeated issues with installing our app onto specific deployments, such as Magento version incompatibilities, misconfigurations, and API unavailability.
Secondly, we’ve realized that our new product Shogun Frontend is a much better fit for Magento customers. Shogun Frontend side steps these deployment issues by not requiring a traditional installation process like our Page Builder app, and by providing your team with complete control of your front-end irrespective of your Magento backend.
It’s a headless commerce solution that transforms your storefront into a sub-second Progressive Web App that’s tightly integrated with but decoupled from the backend.
Your pages will remain published through the end-of-support date, but you may lose certain functionalities, such as the use of forms. Your access to the Page Builder app will be halted, preventing you from creating new pages or editing your published pages.
The HTML of the pages you created with Page Builder for Magento can be exported and emailed to you in their current state as a .zip file upon your request after February 1, 2021.
All currently active Page Builder for Magento accounts will be fully reimbursed for their entire subscription to date, and billing for the remaining months will stop immediately.
Our newly released eCommerce Experience Platform (eXP), Shogun Frontend, is a headless commerce solution built for enterprise companies that turns storefronts into sub-second shopping experiences using progressive web app technology. It features a powerful Experience Manager, robust CMS and a visual IDE empowering your marketing and merchandising teams to build pages quickly without code.
