I am developing a USA based Shopify site that our German parent company also wishes to use for ecommerce in Germany and the EU. What is the best way to fully clone my site and make it available to them? They do not need to be synced thereafter. We would then be able to modify the site to meet their needs.
Hey @bmlvail , there are two ways to do this: Automatically - with app, for example: Store Copy - Replay by Rewind Manually:
Log in to your main store and your copied stores also like the store owner
Check the new store to make sure whether it has the same subscription plan as the original one.
Choose the same theme for the second store or upload a theme file from your PC or laptop.
Export CSV files to back up the data of products and customers. In order to back up the information more conveniently, you can add a collection column to your products CSV.
Prepare the product images of your store to export.
Import CSV files for your products and customers:
Using the Products and Customers pages in the Shopify admin
Using the Import store app to import the CSV files together
Create collections manually in the second store if you do not add a column to the product CSV file as mentioned above.
Reinstall your apps
Set up your settings manually (taxes, shipping, checkout, and payments)
Copy and paste your blog posts and online store pages. Then, rebuild your online store navigation. These last two steps are not compulsory.
