Hi Joe,

Annette here from Shopify support. :)

You could use the Shopify Buy Button channel on your Wix website. The buy button channel costs just $9 per month and gives eCommerce capabilities straight to your Wix website. 

You can read more about the Buy Button here. By using this, you will be able to keep all the functionality of your Wix website and the images, products, etc intact.

I hope this helps and do let me know if you have any further questions. :)

Hi Annette,

Thanks for your reply. The issue we facing is that SKU code in WIX doesnt support special charaters which is not helping us to sycronize our inventory with other external websites we are working with for example we are able to link our shopify account (www.advocadoplus.com.au) with the external website (www.theiconic.com.au) so that whatever stop we update on shopify automatically get sycronize with theiconic.( as we have kept the SKU name same on both website). However same is not happening on wix due to which we dont want to work with wix anymore and want to transfer everything on shopify. As far as we understand from buy button we still be using wix. however we are not interested in using wix anymore. Hence please guide accordingly.

Regards

Joe

Hi! I would like to give up WIX and move everything to Shopify. The shop,now created on shopify platform is ready,but i am not sure how i should proceed further.

Firstly,the domain,bought from WIX can be transfered to Shopify? Secondly, how long does it takes? will the shop be active/live during this transfer?

Thanks in advance!

Hi guys, migration from Wix to Shopify is not a big issue if you choose appropriate service (I’d suggest smth like this one https://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/supported-carts/wix). They offer automatic migration of all the items that you choose to transfer.

 

What was crucial for me to pick this company is that they claim that current store performance will not be affected. And it is so. The migration was smooth, there was a bar showing what items are migrating. The really great thing was that my old store was not disabled and I was selling products as usual. Of course, you can look up for some other services. That is just my suggestion. Hope, you find my advice useful!
