Hi @prachiawate,

It's great to hear you're looking to jump aboard the Shopify platform!

You can absolutely migrate your data to Shopify. This includes products and content like blog posts.

However, you will need to build your new website. I understand that you don't want to disturb the current theme layout, but as Shopify is a different platform to WordPress some disruption is inevitable because it's not possible to transfer the whole WordPress theme to your Shopify store. .

Not to worry though! You can add a free theme quickly and start editing it to make it look just like your old store, or you could take this opportunity to reassess your UX design and look for areas where you can improve.

You could look at our many blog posts on user experience to really dig into your customer's journey.

Also, as you're new to the platform, you might find our Academy especially useful! It's full of fantastic free courses. For example, we have free tutorials and guides on UX design. Here is a YouTube guide to setting up your store too that will provide a handy introduction to using the platform. 

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

All the best, Hyde.
