SEO Question about Connecting an Old Domain to New Website

Hello All,

We're currently working on releasing a new website with Shopify for our existing business. Prior to Shopify, we've used a wordpress website with no ecommerce functionality, and achieved a good SEO ranking. 

Now, we're looking to connect our old domain name from the wordpress website to the new shopify website. We aren't trying to bring over any content from the old website- the new site has been completely designed in Shopify. Our concern is if/ how this might affect our SEO ranking? 

I've been searching the forum for an answer to this, and I've been struggling to find anything that seems to match our exact situation. I'd really appreciate if anyone could provide clarification on how this process might work, and if there are steps we need to take to protect our SEO ranking on an existing domain name with our new website.
