Digital commerce solution Magento Commerce announced the release of several updates to its application marketplace and indicated that the app store is expanding to all Magento merchants. 

The Magento Marketplace has added extensions for the Magento 1.x platform which will open up a potentially huge customer base for commercial developers and a great deal more solutions and offerings for Magento users and administrators. 

Magento debuted its marketplace in April 2016 with a new vetting process to ensure merchants have access to higher quality extensions. It appears that within just six months of availability of the new system according to the company, Magento Marketplace has achieved tenfold growth in sales volume and garnered more than 50,000 merchant users. 

Over 750 extensions have already passed the review (which explores technical, marketing and business value) and are currently available in the Marketplace including products from companies such as Dotmailer, Fastly, Celebros and TaxJar, and across categories such as marketing automation, content delivery, site search, taxes and more.
