Welcome to the Community Monthly Update for February.
We are very proud to announce our GitHub top contributors and maintainers for 2022! We deeply appreciate your work and passion for Magento Open Source.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to 250+ first time contributors. Welcome to the community and thank you for your contribution!
Please join me in congratulating these first time contributors of 2022 who contributed in multiple projects.
Payment Services for Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source provides merchants with the peace of mind that they will be able to collect payment for all their orders in the way that shoppers want to pay. Best of all, configuration and customization is done mainly from the Admin so changing payment methods and customizing location and look and feel doesn't require a cumbersome development and deployment process.
With the latest release of Payment Services, merchants can now take offline orders in the Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source admin screen safely and securely for a shopper that has a saved card stored on the website. Now, if a shopper can't complete their order online, or has called into customer support, they can still finish their purchase with assistance from a merchant representative. In addition, the new release of Payment Services also brings 3D Security (3DS) to merchants using the service. 3DS provides an additional layer of security to prevent unauthorized or fraudulent transactions by having a second verification during purchase. This is especially important for merchants who will be using our service in the UK, which will officially be launched shortly. We are actively looking for our first merchants in this region. By getting involved now, merchants will have extra attention from our product and engineering teams in making sure they are up and running quickly and efficiently. You might also be featured in an upcoming Adobe announcement, providing more exposure for your business. Reach out to Harrison Loveall (Sales), firstname.lastname@example.org or Ritesh Somani (Product), email@example.com for questions or more information.
The Magento Open Source Community Prioritization Process was kicked off in November of last year. This initiative empowers the community to influence the Magento Open Source roadmap and code base by upvoting the pull requests that brings most value to them. We then pick the most up voted PRs (Pull Requests) to work on and add them to the community dashboard with a purple label - “Project: Community Picked.” New set of PRs were added earlier this month. Read the progress update for this month here.
