What to expect from a Beta
Like any Beta Program, a restricted group of selected customers will have early access to new features and use a set of products still under development. However, it's important to remember that the experience in a Beta Program might not be as smooth and self-service as using the final version of a product.
Currently, our program is in Closed Beta, meaning it's only available for selected customers. Once all scheduled key capabilities are thoroughly tested and included, our Open Beta phase will start. Over this period, there will be multiple Beta releases, each of which will be an improvement over the previous version.
We count on you as a member of the Beta Program to help us gather helpful insights and feedback regarding performance, usability, and new capabilities. Check some of our Beta Activities below to understand how you can help us develop better solutions and fix issues affecting your projects' development.

Who can join the Closed Beta Program?
Since support from our product team is closer and therefore limited to a maximum number of customers during the Closed Beta, only clients who have been chosen from our waiting list can join the Closed Beta Program.
What does it cost to participate in the closed beta program?
For VTEX customers, there is no additional cost to participate in the Closed Beta Program. New customers must check our subscription plans.
When will the release be available for all customers?
The program is expected to move to an Open Beta availability in 2023.
Can I use another CMS or deployment solution along with FastStore?
Yes, as FastStore is an open-source, headless, Jamstack solution. However, implementing a non-VTEX solution is the customer's responsibility and must be agreed upon with the third party. VTEX does not assume any responsibility for the project implementation in these cases.
What is the level of support to Closed Beta customers?
During the Closed Beta, customers and partners have direct support from the VTEX product team with a lower SLA. As we move to Open Beta, support will roll into the standard VTEX support cycle.
Why did VTEX decide to create a new product for storefront implementation?
Highly customized stores need an architecture specifically focused on performance. We decided to rely on open-source frameworks to give more flexibility so that development teams could optimize performance in minor details.
Can I sell the new products to new merchants?
We recommend not offering the technology to new customers during the Closed Beta. During this phase, support from the product team is closer and therefore limited to a maximum number of customers.
Can I publish content and success stories about the new products?
Yes, but while the product is in Closed Beta, the content must be reviewed by the VTEX team before being published. In case of publication without deliberation, we recommend unpublishing the content until a new assessment.
