After 10 years, it’s time to say goodbye to Bizar Shop.
We can nolonger make any template changes or formally support the product.
Whilst Bizar Shop still forms the core of many hundreds of websites, some of which have seen multi-million dollar turnovers, its functionality is frozen in time and the technology it was based on has become all but extinct.
In the past decade a lot of software development practices have changed and evolved. So, rather than build a successor to Bizar Shop from scratch, we’ve been able to use an existing Open Source eCommerce platform as the basis for our new offering.
Such a big step forward requires starting from scratch, so there’s no magic upgrade button, everything has to be migrated to the new system. However, we’ve invested a lot of time into making tools and processes that allow us to migrate the vast majority of your content across for you.
If you’re still very happy with your website and you don’t feel a need for change, have a look at this document to see what you’re missing out on.
We strongly encourage everybody currently using Bizar Shop to migrate to the new system, it will certainly be better for your business. However if you don’t want to upgrade for any reason, your website will continue to function as it is for as long as you want it to.
The final piece of good news is that it’s a lot more cost effective to upgrade than you might think!
