Shifting from WordPress to Shopify

3 0 1

Hey Shopify Community,

I currently have my store set up on WordPress, but I'm considering shifting it to Shopify for a smoother and more efficient e-commerce experience. My store specializes in selling Lubricity Dry Mouth Oral Spray, and I want to ensure a seamless transition.

What would be the best approach for migrating my WordPress store to Shopify while maintaining the integrity of my product listings, customer data, and overall design? Any insights, recommendations, or personal experiences with similar migrations would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your valuable input!

Hi @salina23,


You can open a development store and try migrating the products. Development store is free and can start billing whenever you want. I can create a development store for you, if interested. You can also start the $1 per month for 3 months


1. From you Wordpress / WooCommerce dashboard, go to products then click Exports. A file should be downloaded

2. From you Shopify admin page, go to Products > All Products and click Import


It is a tedious job to transfer from Wordpress to Shopify but there are a lot of plug ins and software that you can use to export all the information to Shopify. 


For website customization, I would suggest to hire a developer to do a customization same as your wordpress website.

One area I'd like to share is maintaining your SEO while migrating the store.

  1. Before the migration, make sure to do an extensive site audit using tools like Semrush, ahrefs, or any other tool you are familiar with.
  2. Export the data and use it as a reference point after migration. Take note of all the top issues the audit raised; like missing meta descriptions, broken pages, existing redirects, etc.
  3. Use the Url Redirect feature in Shopify to redirect all ranked pages to their corresponding new pages in Shopify. You don't want to lose all the hard work you've done to optimize your store in search rankings.
  4. Also, it'll be great to customize your 404 page in Shopify from the default "Page not found" to something more informative and personal, and with a call-to-action button that will lead visitors to your homepage or shop/collections.
