Title: Migrate Magento to shopify with best Technique 2020

How to Replatforming From Magento to Shopify
Introduction -
  • eCommerce is a flourishing vertical and to keep
    it thriving, one needs to stay updated! eCommerce
    platform migration is a significant and timely
    decision that eStores can put into action as
    and when required. Shopify is a considerable
    option for the many advantages and featurefulness
    it has to offer. For starters, we are here with a
    definitive guide on Magento to Shopify
  • A  brief and fair comparison between Magento vs
    Shopify is called for before getting started.
    Your current eStore on Magento must have you
    well-versed with all the functionalities and even
    drawbacks that Magento has. Before you make the
    switch, understand Shopify better as its a
    hosted platform, unlike Magento which is an
    open-sourced platform. Both have their shining
    and dull sides, it is better to have an
    all-around knowledge before you sing-up to
    anything new.

Why Do You Want To Migrate?
  • This will be the first set of questions that you
    should ask before any replatforming decision and
    not just Magento to Shopify migration.
  • What are your biggest challenges with your
    current platform? Is it the long and manual
    updates? Developer expenses? Outdated version?
    Marketing or security lags? Or simply a fresh
    start? For instance, eStores running on Magento
    1.x are compelled to find Magento alternatives,
    as its support is no longer available. 
  • A crucial decision would be to identify a
    platform that suits the bill. Make sure that
    whichever platform you choose, covers the
    features you lack in your current platform.

What Data To Move?
  • Theres a reason why we migrate and not recreate!
    Ultimately, when you migrate, the operations,
    features, framework, design and almost
    everythings gonna change. But we need a robust
    base to start where we left off and DATA provides
    that base. You need to collect qualitative and
    quantitative data from your eStore before
  • Qualitative data refers to visitors and their
    actions! You need to identify your most clicked
    page just like your most saleable product. What
    is the source thats driving your customers on
    your site and how much time they are spending on
    which page?
  • Quantitative data, on the other hand, represents
    the numbers! The number of people landing on
    specific pages, what is their next step, how many
    visits until final conversion and more.

Magento to Shopify Migration Steps
  • 1 Keep the existing store running and earning
  • Migration is a process that demands precision and
    time! Until your new eStore is up and running,
    you cant put all the earnings on hold. An
    advantage in Magento to Shopify migration is its
    backend process. Shopify facilitates in keeping
    the transfer running in the backend without
    hindering the sales. 
  • 2 List down the thing to migrate
  • The qualitative and quantitative data refers to
    the performance of your eStore, but there are
    other data too. You will want to migrate the
    products information and webpage content (unless
    youre considering re-writing it) to your Shopify
    store. Thats not it, there are order history and
    status data to migrate too. Migration also calls
    for a cleaning drive. There may be outdated data
    that you would rather not take along.

  • 3 Try before you buy create and test Shopify
    eStore before migration
  • Get your feet wet before committing the dive.
    Shopifys free trial can be your saviour here.
    Familiarize yourself and the team with Shopifys
    features before you initiate your business on the
    new store.  The website wireframe, menu, product
    collection, layout, checkout process, everything
    will be new, and getting a hang over it is
  • 4   Backup Everything Beforehand
  • Just to be on a safer side, backing up all the
    data of your Magento store is important. Even if
    the migration doesnt go as planned in the first
    shot, you can not leave any room for data loss.
    Save yourself the panic of customer details loss
    or any site data loss for that matter by backing
    each and everything up.

Continue .
  • 5 Data migration
  • Now comes the heavy lifting. Apps
    like Cart2Cart and Shopifys Magento Importer are
    designed to facilitate your migration. You can
    opt to export and import the data manually as
    well. If you choose the latter option, youll
    likely export Magento data CSV files. There are
    tutorials online for importing this data into
    hosted platforms, but if youre not tech-savvy.
  • 6 Testing sessions, and some more testing
  • Ensure the tiniest details for perfection! Test
    the orders all the way through payment to find
    out any loopholes left unattended. The display
    should be crisp and organized for the visitors to
    have a seamless shopping experience.  Ensure that
    customer data is organized and displaying
    properly, and that youre able to manage every
    aspect of your business as if it were a live

  • 7 Reinstate your new eCommerce store
  • Your new eStore wont be a clone of your old
    site.  Needless to say, when youre migrating,
    backend adjustments are not the only ones that
    youll perform. Shopify offers an array of free
    and paid themes. Front-end changes will elevate
    your brand with the UX cues it needs. Here
    are top Shopify store examples you can refer for
    your eStore theme inspiration.
  • Double-checking everything on your eStore is
    worth the time, as the first impression leaves a
    mark. Once you finalize a theme and integrate it,
    ensure the content, products and other page
    details are rightly fit. When the process is
    thoroughly checked and ready to make a show,
    choose a day with minimal visitors. The final
    touches and upgrades will then soothe the store
    for a welcome.
