How to build a new shopify store while maintaining an existing shopify store?

I have a client that is using shopify for their store, but they are using Wordpress for all other parts of their site.  They want to migrate everything over to Shopify.  What is the best way to handle something like this?  Is it better to just set up a new store and do the development on that, then close down the old store once the new store and the entire website has been moved entirely onto Shopify?

Also, if that is the approach, is there a way to export all the settings and configurations on the current store to the new store with a simple file export with all the settings and other details?

 

Thanks!

Hi, @sawyer1370 !

Thanks for your question! What kind of assets does your client still need to move over to Shopify? You have a few different options when considering migration to Shopify but it will really depend on what still needs to be moved over. You can use CSV files to import and export products from Shopify. We also have a great document on migration here as well as soon applications that can help with the process like Cart2Cart. As a last resort you can begin working on a shop and close down the site on Wordpress when you're done as you've mentioned. Once I have a bit more context we'll be able to provide a more concrete recommendation for you! 

Warm regards!
